MILWAUKEE -- Brewers reliever Jim Henderson began another 30-day rehabilitation assignment Thursday as he continues a comeback from a right shoulder injury.

Henderson started for rookie-level Arizona and allowed one hit in 1 1/3 scoreless innings. It began Henderson's second such stint; an earlier rehab assignment was cut short in May because of renewed discomfort in the shoulder.

"I heard it was OK, but the velocity, from what I heard -- I didn't get any numbers -- wasn't there," Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said. "He's not a guy that's going to throw 90 and be a command guy and throw off-speed pitches. He's got to have life on his ball. And when there's life, there's velocity."

Henderson has been working out in Arizona with right-hander Tyler Thornburg, who is on the disabled list with a right elbow injury. Thornburg has begun a throwing program.
