White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Throws bullpen
Hendriks (illness) is working out with the White Sox at camp and threw a bullpen session Friday, Vinnie Duber of AllCHGO.com reports.
Hendriks' top priority for now remains his battle with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, but it's certainly encouraging to see him able to throw. The White Sox previously said they didn't expect to have an update on their closer's ability until Opening Day, however, and there's been no suggestion that Friday's bullpen session is part of a typical spring build-up....

White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Remains without timeline
White Sox general manager Rick Hahn said Wednesday that Hendriks (illness) will be around the team for spring training, but an update on any timeline for the pitcher's return to baseball activities won't come until at least Opening Day, Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com reports.
Hendriks revealed Jan. 8 that he was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma, and while the 34-year-old is seemingly in good spirits since beginning treatment, his baseball career will be put on hold while he battles the disease. The White Sox haven't yet announced a replacement at closer while Hendriks is out, but Kendall Graveman -- who saved six games and notched 27 holds in 2022 -- seemingly represents the most logical fill-in option to begin the campaign....

White Sox's Liam Hendriks: Announces cancer diagnosis
Hendriks announced Sunday that he has been diagnosed with Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma.
Hendriks will begin treatment Monday and said in a statement he's "confident that I will make a full recovery and be back on the mound as soon as possible." It's obviously going to take time, though, with general manager Rick Hahn saying in his own statement that "we do not expect to have any updates on Liam's playing status prior to Opening Day at the very earliest." In much less important news, the White Sox will have an opening at closer while Hendriks is away. Kendall Graveman and perhaps Reynaldo Lopez loom as the most likely options to fill that void....
