MINNEAPOLIS — Chicago White Sox closer Liam Hendriks has been added to the American League All-Star team, Major League Baseball announced Sunday.
Hendriks is 1-2 with a 2.35 ERA, 45 strikeouts, 18 saves and a 0.95 WHIP in 30 relief appearances this season.
He is an All-Star for the third time in his career, also in 2019 with the Oakland Athletics and last season with the Red Sox. He earned the save in last year’s All-Star Game at Denver’s Coors Field.
Hendriks is tied for fourth in the American League in saves. He missed nearly three weeks with a right forearm flexor strain.
Hendriks and Jordan Romano of the Toronto Blue Jays replace Gerrit Cole of the New York Yankees and Justin Verlander of the Houston Astros.
Hendriks joins Tim Anderson as Sox representative in the All-Star game. Anderson was voted the American League’s starting shortstop.
