Clay Hensley injures right shoulder

      PHOENIX -- Clay Hensley injured his throwing shoulder when he struck out Sean Burroughs in the ninth here earlier tonight, and indications are he is probably headed to the disabled list.

      "We have to wait and see what's wrong with him, " said manager Edwin Rodriguez. "But the way it looked, it looks like he's going to be out for a while."

      Hensley refused to discuss it, walking past reporters to the training room with his right shoulder wrapped in ice. But pitching coach Randy St. Claire said Hensley said he felt a pull in his shoulder on the strikeout pitch to Burroughs.

       "Top of the shoulder," St. Claire said. "He said he felt something pull. He said he didn't feel anything pop."

       Hensley was making only his third appearance of the nine-game road trip, first since failing to record an out on Friday in Los Angeles when he gave up three hits and walk to the Dodgers, and fourth since coming off the disabled list on May 21 with a bruised rib and hairline fracture to his left scapula.
