Liam Hendricks (34, Chicago White Sox), who was recently diagnosed with cancer, is preparing to return to the major league mound.
CBS Sports reported on the 3rd that Hendricks would start a minor league rehabilitation game on the 4th (hereafter Korean time).
He added that Hendricks plans to return to the major leagues in the middle of this month. It is a very quick comeback after being diagnosed with cancer recently.
Earlier in January, Hendricks said he had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. This disease is a type of blood cancer that occurs when lymphoid tissue cells are converted to malignancy.
Afterwards, the Chicago White Sox team announced that Hendricks had been diagnosed with cancer on the 21st. Hendricks also announced that he was free from the disease.
Hendricks, in his 12th year in the major leagues, went 4-4 with a 2.81 ERA in 57 2/3 innings in 58 games last season. 85 strikeouts.스포츠토토
Hendricks is a right-handed reliever who throws a four-seam fastball averaging 97.8 mph. His four-seam fastball is over 60%. Here he throws sliders and curveballs.
The Chicago White Sox are staying at a 0.276 win rate of 8-21 in the season until the last 2 days. Although it is ranked 4th in the district, it is difficult to expect to advance to the postseason.
Therefore, if Hendricks shows outstanding performance as in previous years after returning, it can be used as a card to secure prospects in the summer trade market.
