The Chicago White Sox might have a few free-agents who stick around.
1. Liam Hendriks
It might be worth it for Liam Hendriks to stick around. He just beat cancer and then missed the end of the 2023 season as he recovered from an injury.
It was a tough year for him but it was also a year in which he showed that he is a warrior. He is an inspiration to all and he should be welcomed back to the White Sox with a contract for 2024.
Hendriks deserves to finish his career with the team that he went on that journey with. At the very minimum, he should be welcomed back for another year. He has a team option and the White Sox should pick it up.
2. Touki Toussaint
Touki Toussaint isn't a UFA or looking for an option to be picked up but he does need a contract using arbitration if necessary. The White Sox should be all in on bringing him back for the 2024 season. He is someone that should not be let to get away.
He isn't part of the long-term plan or anything like that but he should be someone that they want back for a 2024 season that could go in any direction.
This White Sox team needs a pitcher like Touki to eat up some innings. He had a good year in his role and should be brought back.
