  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Earns 12th save

    Hendriks allowed two hits and struck out one across a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Thursday against the Royals.

    Hendriks was tasked with protecting a three-run lead, but he made things interesting by allowing two of the first three batters he faced to reach base. However, he ultimately escaped the jam to tally his 12th save of the campaign. Hendriks has turned in three consecutive scoreless appearances and has a 3.93 ERA with a 28:5 K:BB across 18.1 frames for the season.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Notches 11th save

    Hendriks recorded his 11th save of the season during the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Royals, giving up a hit and striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning.

    The right-hander completed a combined shutout by White Sox pitchers after Dylan Cease had kicked things off with 5.2 scoreless frames. Hendriks has had a bumpy start to the season, with his 4.15 ERA and 1.33 WHIP being his worst marks since 2018, but he still sports a 35.5 percent strikeout rate through 17.1 innings and sits fourth in the majors in saves.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Fans side for save

    Hendriks struck out all three batters he faced and earned a save over the Royals on Monday.

    Hendriks needed just 12 pitches in a perfect 10th inning to secure the 5-3 win Monday. He blew his last two save chances after converting the previous nine. The veteran righty lowered his ERA to 4.41 with 10 saves and 26 punchouts through 16.1 innings.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Blows save but earns win

    Hendriks (1-2) was credited with the win after blowing a save Saturday against the Yankees. He allowed one run one on one hit and one walk while striking out three over 1.2 innings.

    The closer was put in a tough situation in the eighth inning, entering with one out and a pair of runners on base with Chicago clinging to a one-run lead. He got out of the jam by striking out Josh Donaldson and Gleyber Torres, but the Yankees got to him for a run in the following frame to tie the score. The White Sox then walked off with a win the bottom of the ninth, handing Hendriks his first win of the campaign. Despite the favorable finish, it wasn't the best outing for Hendriks, who has blown two straight save chances while yielding three earned runs over his past two innings.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Blows save after grand slam

    Hendriks allowed two runs on two hits in Monday's loss to the Guardians. He recorded one out and was charged with a blown save.

    The White Sox entered the ninth inning with an 8-2 lead but Hendriks was called in after Tanner Banks struggled. The veteran righty proceeded to serve up a grand slam to Josh Naylor to send the game to extra innings. His ERA jumped to 4.61 through 13.2 innings after blowing a save for the first time since his season debut.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Picks up another save

    Hendriks did not allow a baserunner across a scoreless 10th inning to earn the save Saturday against Boston.

    Hendriks needed only eight pitches to retire Rafael Devers, Xander Bogaerts and J.D. Martinez to pick up his ninth save of the season. Hendriks has turned in six consecutive scoreless appearances, racking up an 8:2 K:BB in that span. He's overcome a shaky start to the campaign and worked around a back injury to cement himself as one of the elite closers once again.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Fans three for eighth save

    Hendriks struck out three and walked one in a scoreless ninth inning Friday to pick up the save against the Red Sox.

    He was tasked with protecting a two-run lead, and apart from walking Christian Vazquez, he was perfect, striking out Franchy Cordero, Jackie Bradley and Jarren Duran to pick up his eighth save of the season. Hendriks wasn't stellar out of the gate this season, but he now has five straight scoreless appearances under his belt and four saves over that stretch.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Secures another save

    Hendriks earned the save against the Cubs on Wednesday by pitching a perfect ninth inning during which he struck out one batter.

    The right-hander pitched (and notched a save) each of the previous two days, but he threw only 22 combined pitches in those outings and was therefore able to appear in a third consecutive contest Wednesday. He needed only 10 pitches this time around to earn another save, giving him seven on the season. The White Sox have an off day Thursday, so there will be no intrigue about whether Hendriks could be deployed for a fourth straight game.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Closes sixth game

    Hendriks earned the save, striking out one in a perfect ninth inning in a 3-1 win Tuesday over the Cubs.

    Hendriks did not allow a ball out of the infield and retired the Cubs in order with only 10 pitches. While the closer doesn't necessarily have impressive numbers over the first month of the season, he has converted six consecutive save opportunities around a back injury. Consistency has been an issue as he's allowed no hits five times and two or more hits five times in his first 10 appearances. He's averaging better than 13 punchouts per nine innings for the fourth straight season, one of the main reasons why he's been able to pitch around trouble.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Earns fifth save

    Hendriks earned the save Monday after pitching a perfect ninth inning, striking out three in the 3-0 win over the Angels.

    Hendriks snagged his first save since April 16 in a dominant fashion, retiring all three batters he faced via the punchout. The right-hander now has five saves on the season in six opportunities and he owns a 4.82 ERA and 1.82 WHIP with 15 strikeouts over 9.1 innings. After pitching back-to-back days without giving up so much as a hit, it appears Hendriks may be behind the back injury that shelved him for several days.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Back in business

    Hendriks (back) tossed a scoreless ninth inning in Saturday's 4-0 victory over the Angels.

    Hendriks did not enter in a save situation, but with the White Sox up only four runs and Hendriks not having pitched since April 24, he got the call and sealed the deal. Hendriks was a bit rusty, throwing only 11 of his 20 pitches for strikes, but consider him good to go moving forward.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Unlikely to pitch Wednesday

    Hendriks (back) acknowledged that he likely won't be available out of the bullpen for Wednesday's game against the Royals, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Hendriks noted that he experienced back tightness during his appearance in Saturday's loss to the Twins, but he still proceeded to pitch the next day in the series finale. He ended up taking his second loss of the season in the Twins' 6-4 victory, as he allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits and a walk in the 1.1-inning appearance. Though Hendriks said he's feeling better after resting the past two days, the White Sox will likely look to stay away from him Wednesday to extend him more recovery time. The 33-year-old closer is expected to throw a bullpen session instead Wednesday, and if he back responds well to the activity, he should avoid a trip to the injured list.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Considered day-to-day

    Hendriks is considered day-to-day due to back spasms but hasn't been ruled out from appearing in Tuesday's game against the Royals, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Hendriks reportedly slipped in the dugout between the ninth and 10th innings Sunday against the Twins, shortly before allowing a walkoff homer to Byron Buxton. The issue doesn't appear to be serious, however, as it looks as though he'll return to action within a few days if not right away. If he doesn't wind up being cleared to pitch Tuesday, Kendall Graveman or Aaron Bummer could receive a save opportunity.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Dealing with back tightness

    Hendriks is dealing with back tightness following Sunday's loss to Minnesota, James Fegan of The Athletic reports.

    Hendriks took the loss Sunday when he allowed three runs (two earned) on three hits and a walk while striking out one in 1.1 innings. Manager Tony La Russa downplayed the severity of the issue and indicated Hendriks said during the outing that he was fine. However, he'll receive treatment following Sunday's series finale and will have a day to rest ahead of Tuesday's matchup against the Royals.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Tallies fourth save

    Hendriks allowed two hits and a walk while striking out one across a scoreless ninth inning to pick up the save Saturday against the Rays.

    The inning wasn't quite as nerve wracking as the line would suggest, as the walk Hendriks surrendered was intentional. However, he did allow a leadoff single and another base knock two batters later. Though Hendriks has successfully converted four of his five save chances this season, he's allowed multiple hitters to reach base in all but one appearance. Positively, he still gets strikeouts when needed, as he's racked up nine strikeouts as opposed to one walk across his five frames.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Notches another save

    Hendriks struck out one batter in a scoreless ninth inning and earned a save over the Rays on Friday.

    Hendriks quickly retired the Rays in order in the ninth, needing just 11 pitches to secure his third save of the year. It was his first scoreless appearance of the season after coughing up four runs (three earns) in his first three outings. The White Sox clearly still have full confidence in Hendriks as he's earned three saves in the last four days.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Records second save

    Hendriks picked up the save Wednesday against the Mariners after giving up one run on two hits during the ninth inning. He struck out two and didn't record a walk.

    For the second straight night, Hendricks came on with a multiple-run lead in the ninth and was able to lock down the victory despite allowing a run. The 33-year-old is off to a rocky start, as he's allowed multiple hits and given up at least one run in each of his first three outings, including a blown save during an Opening Day loss to the Tigers. Regardless, Hendriks still has plenty of job security after recording 38 saves and a 2.54 ERA for the White Sox last year, especially with Craig Kimbrel already shipped off to the Dodgers.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Allows run in first save

    Hendriks picked up the save Tuesday against the Mariners after giving up one run on three hits during the ninth inning. He had three strikeouts and zero walks.

    The 33-year-old entered with a 3-1 lead and needed 25 pitches to get through the frame, but Seattle managed only one run since all three hits allowed were singles. Hendriks is off to a rough start this season, as he picked up a loss and blown save Opening Day after surrendering two runs to Detroit. Still, Hendriks has plenty of job security after recording 38 saves with a 2.54 ERA for the White Sox last year, especially with Craig Kimbrel already shipped off to the Dodgers.

  • White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Struggles on Opening Day

    Hendriks (0-1) allowed two runs on four hits and no walks while striking out two in one inning to take the loss in Friday's matchup against Detroit.

    Hendriks entered Friday's game with two outs in the bottom of the eighth inning and remained in the matchup with a one-run lead in the ninth, but he was unable to pick up the save in his 2022 debut. The right-hander allowed a solo home run with one out before giving up a triple and a single to end the game. The 33-year-old's appearance isn't what fantasy managers are accustomed to after Hendriks converted 38 of 44 save chances last year. However, the right-hander remains among the best closers in baseball and has plenty of job security in 2022 after the White Sox traded Craig Kimbrel to the Dodgers.
