White Sox pitcher Liam Hendriks has been named the American League’s Comeback Player of the Year by MLB. This comes after winning the same award from The Players Choices Awards, which is voted on by players each year. However, the MLB.com beat writers made the decision for this particular accolade.

Liam Hendriks, 34, was diagnosed with Stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma in December, going through four rounds of treatment between December and April. His final treatment coincided with the opening home game for the White Sox on April 3 against the San Francisco Giants. Achieving remission in late April, he began rehab in the minor leagues in May, eventually returning to the majors.

Hendriks made his comeback on May 29, initially struggling but regaining form in subsequent appearances. Unfortunately, he later underwent Tommy John surgery in August, leading to the White Sox declining his club option for the 2024 season, thus making him a free agent.
