Liam Hendriks and the Boston Red Sox are in agreement on two-year, $10 million contract, pending a physical. The deal has a chance to reach $20M through incentives with the third-year being a mutual option, per Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic.

Liam Hendriks, 35, is just six months removed from Tommy John Surgery, and thirteen months from being diagnosed with Stage 4 Non-Hodgkin lymphoma. It's no secret that Hendriks has been put through a whirlwind, but his dedication and triumphant earned him AL Comeback Player of the Year.

Hendriks, who is still recovering from his Tommy John surgery, is expected to return late 2024. He pitched 128 2/3 innings and finished 127 games with a 2.66 ERA in his two seasons with the White Sox prior to 2023. He recorded 75 saves, 198 strikeouts, and 109 games completed.

Hendriks is without a doubt one of the game's best closers. With his new contract being a two-year deal, Hendriks will get the opportunity to pitch at least one full season in Boston. Which gives Hendriks a chance to learn his new home while recovering, and still have a guaranteed job.
