Reliever Jim Henderson, who was on a rehab assignment at Triple-A Las Vegas, suffered a setback after he reported a hamstring issue. He will now return to the Mets complex at Port St. Lucie, Fla.
Henderson’s rehab assignment was scheduled to end this week and he was expected to be optioned to Triple-A Las Vegas. But the right-hander will remain on the disabled list as he restarts his rehab.
Henderson was first put on the 15-Day disabled list June 19 with right biceps tendinitis. He started his rehab assignment on July 1 at Double-A Binghamton, where he allowed eight runs on eight hits and five walks while striking out four batters in 4.2 innings.
He will likely make several appearances for Binghamton again before rejoining Las Vegas and potentially getting activated by the Mets if all goes well.
In 31 appearances for the Mets this season, Henderson was 1-2 with a 4.26 ERA, while striking out 30 batters in 21 innings.
