White Sox Get Exciting News With Liam Hendriks Injury Update


The Chicago White Sox are still trying to find their groove in 2022 and currently sit 6.0 games back of first place in the AL Central division. Staying healthy will be a key to making up ground over the rest of the summer, which makes reliever Liam Hendriks' latest injury update an exciting one for the bullpen.

Liam Hendriks Injury Update

White Sox manager Tony La Russa told reporters that Hendriks remains on track to return during the team's next home stand. That kicks off with a game against the Minnesota Twins on Monday, July 4. Of course, Hendriks has been out of action since the middle of June due to a right forearm strain.

This development comes fresh off the news that the two-time All-Star "felt good" during his bullpen session on Tuesday. Hendriks is set to toss a simulated game in San Francisco on Friday before the coaching staff decides what the next step is. Everything continues to trend in the right direction.

Getting Hendriks back on the field would be a huge boost considering Chicago owns the fourth-highest bullpen ERA in the AL (4.21). The 33-year-old has been a lone bright spot among the team's relievers, posting a 2.81 ERA and 1.13 WHIP to go along with 37 strikeouts in 25.2 innings pitched.

Watch for further updates on Hendriks' status this weekend. The White Sox have odds set at +185 to earn a divisional crown, trailing only the Minnesota Twins (+105), according to FanDuel Sportsbook. Chicago is also tied for the ninth-best odds to win the world Series at +2800.
