Earlier in January, Hendricks said he had been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. This disease is a type of blood cancer that occurs when lymphoid tissue cells are converted to malignancy.
At the time, Hendricks said, “When I heard that it was a malignant tumor, my wife and I were shocked.”
Hendrix’s words came true. The Chicago White Sox announced on the 21st that Hendricks had been diagnosed with cancer.
In addition, Hendricks also posted a picture of his fight against the disease through his SNS, and he announced that he was free from the disease.
Hendricks, in his 12th year in the majors, went 4-4 with a 2.81 ERA in 57 2/3 innings in 58 games last season. 85 strikeouts.
Hendricks is a right-handed reliever who throws a four-seam fastball averaging 97.8 mph. His four-seam fastball is over 60%. Here he throws sliders and curveballs.
The Chicago White Sox are struggling with a 7-15 win rate of 0.318 in the season until the 24th. The addition of Hendrix is very welcome news.
