Via Twitter, Jsonline Writer Tom Haudricourt found out Jim Henderson is on his way to Milwaukee. The reliever has a boatload of saves for Nashville. No corresponding roster move has been announced yet. Edit by JP: TH also posted the following stats on Jim Henderson: 1.69 ERA, 15 SV. The Brewers have a 40-man spot available so they do not need to clear one for him. A corresponding move from the 25-man roster will be needed. Also cleaned up the title a little.

Jonathan Sanchez, the return in the Melky Cabrera trade, will be sent to a monastery for his own protection, while Yuniesky Betancourt’s attempt to enter the Federal Witness Program will fail due to his unwillingness to walk 90 feet to an initial meeting point with FBI agents.
