“Limp Bell” Hendrix, “I’m confident about my mound comeback.” Strong will.
Liam Hendrix (34, Chicago White Sox), who was diagnosed with lymphoma, expressed his firm determination to overcome the disease and return to the mound.
Hendrix said on SNS on the 8th, “When I heard the word ‘malicious tumor’, my wife and I were greatly shocked.”
Hendrix then vowed, “But I will take on a new challenge with the same mind as I did when I crossed other obstacles in my life.”
He also said, “I am confident that I will recover as soon as possible and return to the mound. “I will overcome the current situation with the support of my wife, family, teammates, and the club,” he said.
The Chicago White Sox said Hendrix was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma on the same day. It is a tumor caused by the conversion of lymphoid tissue cells into malignant cells.
However, it is known that the survival rate is very high compared to other malignant tumors. Hendrix is also expected to return to the mound with a strong appearance.
Hendrix, who is in his 12th year in the Major League, pitched 57 2/3 innings in 58 games last season, 4 wins and 4 losses with a 2.81 ERA. He struck out 85.
Hendrix is a right-handed relief pitcher who throws an average of 97.8 miles of four-seam fastball. Four-seam fastball has a utilization rate of more than 60%. Throw a slider and a curve here.
The Chicago White Sox have yet to inform Hendrix`s of his treatment and rehabilitation schedule. I hope Hendrix`s returns to the mound with his strong will. 파워볼사이트
