Sources: White Sox to sign top free agent closer Liam Hendriks

The Chicago White Sox have agreed to terms with closer Liam Hendriks on a multi-year contract, league sources said Monday.

The deal, expected to be the largest yet in a slow-moving offseason market, is pending a physical.

Hendriks, 31, had 14 saves for the Oakland A’s in the shortened 2020 season. He has 39 saves and a 1.79 ERA in the past two seasons — the best ERA of any pitcher with at least 75 innings. He struck out 161 batters in 110 ⅓ innings in that time. In his final appearance for the A’s, Hendriks pitched three shutout innings at the end of Game 3 of the American League Division Series for the win.

Athletics’ Liam Hendriks, Brewers’ Devin Williams named 2020’s top relievers

Major League Baseball has announced the winners of the Reliever of the Year awards on Saturday ahead of Game 4 of the World Series. The Mariano Rivera American League Reliever of the Year is Liam Hendriks of the Athletics while the Trevor Hoffman National League Reliever of the Year is Devin Williams of the Brewers.

Hendriks was the runner-up in 2019 to Aroldis Chapman of the Yankees and there’s an argument he should’ve won the honor a season ago. No matter, the 2020 award is Hendriks’. He saved 14 games in 15 chances with a 1.78 ERA, 0.67 WHIP and 37 strikeouts against two unintentional walks in 25 1/3 innings, helping the A’s to the AL West title.

“Honored is an understatement,” said Hendriks. “It’s humbling to win an award that bears the name of the greatest closer in history. I’m extremely thankful to my teammates. If they weren’t behind me on the field, I wouldn’t be half the pitcher I am today. A huge thank you to the bullpen for sharing years of invaluable advice and experience with me. Thank you to the coaching staff and the entire organization for believing in me and giving me the opportunity to play in the green and gold.”
