White Sox closer Hendriks undergoes Tommy John surgery

Chicago White Sox closer Liam Hendriks had Tommy John surgery to repair a torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, the club announced Wednesday.

The White Sox added that Hendriks will be out for approximately 12-14 months. The right-hander made just five appearances this season after returning in May following a recovery from non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.

The three-time All-Star hasn’t pitched since mid-June after landing on the injured list with elbow inflammation. Chicago originally hoped he’d return after four weeks.

Hendriks is in the last guaranteed season of a three-year, $54-million deal he signed with the White Sox in January 2021. The club has a $15-million option for 2024.

The 34-year-old owns a 2.76 ERA with 13.5 K/9 and 76 saves across 132 appearances since joining Chicago.
