Brewers | Jim Henderson back in closer role

Milwaukee Brewers RP Jim Henderson is back in the closer's role, and RP Francisco Rodriguez is available to fill in in the ninth inning anytime Henderson needs a breather. Henderson pitched the eighth inning Wednesday, June 19, because it was a "need to pitch" day for Henderson, because he hadn't pitched in the previous seven days. The Brewers went ahead and Rodriguez came in for the save in the ninth. "I'm hoping we get on some winning streaks and we can have a lot in a row," manager Ron Roenicke said. "When you do that, Henderson is going to pitch a lot and is going to need a day. When he needs a day, Frankie is there. But if we just go in a normal game and everybody is rested ... we'll set it up (with Henderson as the closer)."

Fantasy Tip: If Henderson is available in your league, pick him up. K-Rod can probably be dropped in most mixed formats for now.
