After beating cancer, Chicago White Sox right-hander Liam Hendricks, 34, has been given a new challenge by God.
The White Sox announced the news of Hendricks’ surgery on Wednesday (March 3) via official channels.
Hendricks underwent surgery to repair the damaged medial collateral ligament in his right elbow under the care of Dr. Keith Meister on Wednesday morning local time in Arlington, Texas.
In short, he had Tommy John surgery. The White Sox organization says he’ll need 12 to 14 months to recover.
In the best case scenario, he could return in time for the end of the 2024 season. In reality, he is expected to rehab with the goal of returning in 2025.
Hendricks revealed his diagnosis of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in January and began chemotherapy. He beat the disease in April and returned to the big league mound in late May.
He appeared in five games, allowing three runs in five innings, before being sidelined with an elbow injury that eventually required surgery.온라인카지노
Hendricks, a three-time All-Star and two-time Mariano Rivera Reliever of the Year, is 33-34 with a 3.82 ERA and 116 saves in 476 appearances over 13 seasons in the majors.
This season is the final year of his three-year, $54 million contract, with a team option for the 2024 season.
