Liam Hendriks allowed one run on two hits and struck out two in one inning, taking a blown save in Sunday's 4-3 extra-inning loss versus the Royals.
Hendriks entered the game in the ninth inning with a 3-2 lead. He blew the save by surrendering the game-tying homer to Carlos Santana. Hendriks has struggled with the White Sox to start the season, owning an 8.10 ERA, 1.50 WHIP, and five strikeouts across three appearances. Despite the 32-year-old’s recent struggles, Hendriks is still an elite closer and will look for better results in his next save opportunity.

Hendriks had not pitched for a week, but given that we are a week out from Opening Day, it looks like he should be ready for the start of the season. Lock him in as a top-five closer as we head into the final weekend of draft season.
Liam Hendriks has reportedly been dealing with kidney stones, according to manager Tony La Russa. La Russa indicated there's a 'good chance' Hendriks could pitch this weekend.
Hendriks hasn't pitched in the past week, but he did throw a bullpen on Wednesday. The White Sox closer has pitched 3 innings so far this spring, and Chicago will be hoping to get him a few more appearances before the regular season opens next week. There has been no official word from the team on whether this affects Hendriks' availability for Opening Day, but it seems like he is headed in the right direction and will be ready sooner rather than later. Hendriks is currently the second ranked RP in the expert consensus rankings, and this minor setback shouldn't impact his fantasy value.
