Sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan that Liam Hendrix, who is closely related to free agents, and the Chicago White Sox have reached an agreement on a multi-year deal, pending a physical deal.
The source said that the transaction was for a period of three years, including a fourth option, and provided Hendricks with a guarantee of US$54 million.
The source said that the 31-year-old Hendrix will earn $39 million in the first three years, and the annual salary for the buyout and fourth-year options is $15 million. If the White Sox refuses to choose, they will be able to pay the buyout price within many years.
Yahoo Sports first reported on the agreement between Hendrix and the White Sox.
Hendriks (Hendriks) became a free agent last month when Oakland Sports failed to provide a qualified offer. For the past two seasons, he has been one of the most effective substitute players in baseball, with an ERA (1
He completed the 2020 regular season with a 1.78 ERA and MLB second-best 14 saves in 15 chances, and then won the playoffs with one save and 3.18 ERA.
The Australian savior created a career best with a strikeout ratio of 12.3 and 13.1 strikeouts per 9 innings last season and is the best reliance of the “American League” of the year.
In the late game of the 2019 season, Hendricks became a key figure for A manager Bob Melvin. The right-hander is a good starter, his income in 2019 was $2.15 million. He scored 4-4 with a 1.80 ERA, scored 85 appearances in a career-high 75 games, spanned 85 innings, and was selected to the All-Star team for the first time. He turned 32 years old on February 10.
Hendricks was assigned to the mission on June 25, 2018-he has experienced nearly six times-and then just over three months later started Oakland’s 7-2 wild card loss at Yankee Stadium.
The guy closer to Oakland received a nice raise because he signed a one-year, $5.3 million contract before the 2020 season to avoid salary arbitration.
In the 10 professional league seasons of Twins, Royals, Blue Jays and A’s, he has a record of 19 wins and 27 losses, 40 saves and an ERA of 4.10.
