Liam Hendriks has been named as an American League All-Star
The Chicago White Sox originally were only sending one player to the 2022 MLB All-Star Game. Tim Anderson is the starting shortstop for the American League All-Stars. He is well deserving of this honor as he is having a magnificent year.
Initially, he was the only White Sox representative. It is a shame because the White Sox have a few players that are more than deserving of this honor. Now, he won’t be going alone as Liam Hendriks will join him as an American League All-Star.
Hendriks deserves to be there as the league will now have its best closer participating in the big game. He currently has 18 saves on the season and has a 2.35 ERA with a 0.946 WHIP. He also has 45 strikeouts in 30.2 innings pitched.
This is a big get for the league as he is a very exciting player to have in the league. In addition to being one of the best closers in the game, he also has an incredible personality. Few players give a better interview than him.
Liam Hendriks deserves to be an American League All-Star for being so good.
Liam Hendriks should be very proud of what he has done. This is a pitcher who was DFA’d at one point and contemplated playing elsewhere in the world. He was also a top ten finisher for the American League Cy Young Award for the previous two years.
Now, he is going to his third straight All-Star Game. Never give up on your dreams because Liam is showing just how far you can come when you keep working. It will be really cool to see him on his third straight American League All-Star team.
In 2021, they decided to mic him up. He couldn’t hear the broadcasters but the audience was surely able to hear him. He enjoys yelling profanities when he has both good and bad innings so they might decide not to do that again. Either way, fans will be entertained by him.
This is going to be a great All-Star Game. Having a White Sox player in the starting lineup is exciting and it will be even better knowing that one of their best players is waiting in the bullpen for the right situation. Congrats to Liam on an amazing accomplishment.
