Watch Now:

Hendriks (elbow) had his $15 million team option for 2024 declined by the White Sox on Friday, Jon Heyman of the New York Post reports.

The White Sox still owe $15 million to Hendriks, and they have opted to pay him annual installments of $1.5 million through 2033. The 34-year-old reliever missed the early stages of the season while recovering from treatment for non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and he is set to miss the vast majority of the 2024 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery in August. Despite his unavailability for the coming campaign, Hendriks could still attract a two-year deal in free agency.
