Chicago White Sox closer Liam Hendricks has been diagnosed with cancer.
Hendricks was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, a type of blood cancer, in January. Non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma is a malignant tumor resulting from malignant transformation of lymphoid tissue cells and is a type of blood cancer. Unlike Hodgkin’s lymphoma, it was a cancer with a low cure rate and many recurrences, so it was a big shock in many ways.
On January 9, he shared this news on his SNS and said, “I was shocked, but I will overcome cancer for the sake of my family and teammates. I am confident that I will recover quickly and return to the mound.”
Hendrix is a firefighter who pitched in 471 major league games and recorded 31 wins, 34 losses, 42 holds, and 115 saves (3.81 ERA). He went 4-4 with 37 saves (2.81 earned run average) in 58 games last year.
Hendricks, who was scheduled to participate as the Australian national team in the World Baseball Classic (WBC) last month, was not allowed to join the national team as news spread that he had cancer right before the WBC was held.
The American sports media ‘ESPN’ reported on the 21st that Hendrix was completely cured. The media said, “Hendricks posted on his SNS that he was judged to be cured of cancer after completing chemotherapy treatment.” said,” he reported. 메이저놀이터
