The Chicago White Sox could get a lot in return for Liam Hendriks this year.
Liam Hendriks is one of the few players on the Chicago White Sox that had a great year. He wasn’t called upon to pitch as much as a year ago because there weren’t as many save opportunities. However, when he was called on, he pitched very well. He also dealt with a little bit of an injury this year.
In the first half of the season, he was good enough to be an American League All-Star. It was the second straight time that he went there representing the White Sox. He, regardless of how the season went for his team, should be proud of how good he’s been in this uniform.
Because he is still so dominant, lots of teams would give up a lot to get him. A team like the Los Angeles Dodgers need a closer really bad as Craig Kimbrel isn’t cutting it for them. getting someone like Liam Hendriks would really help them and they would trade a lot more than AJ Pollock.
It is a shame that he might have to end his White Sox tenure like this but it is what it is. The team around him failed to get the most out of him so now it is time to consider moving on from him. Liam is amazing for the community, the clubhouse, and on the field but this team needs to make some changes.
It is unclear if any big moves like this will be made but something needs to change. The way that this season has gone is unacceptable and some of the players need to be held accountable.
