Aussie Pitcher Liam Hendriks Set To Pen Mammoth $70 Million Deal With New MLB Team

Aussie Pitcher Liam Hendriks Set To Pen Mammoth $70 Million Deal With New MLB Team

Free agent Liam Hendriks is widely regarded as one of the best pitchers in the MLB.

And the Aussie is set to be rewarded financially for another stellar season on the mound for the Oakland A's.

31-year-old Hendriks has reportedly agreed terms to join the Chicago White Sox in a three-year deal worth a guaranteed US$54million (AU$70million).

It's also understood the new contract includes a fourth-year option too.

MLB All-Star Hendriks was in red-hot form for the A's last campaign.

And if you take a quick look at his stats, you can see why.

He notched up a whopping 14 saves in the 2020 season, bringing his career total up to 40.

And on top of that, he also mustered up 37 strikeouts - still an impressive figure for a condensed baseball season.

But stats aside, Hendriks has proven himself to be a valuable part of the team culture in Oakland during his four-year spell.

So much so that the Los Angeles Dodgers, Houston Astros and New York Mets all registered their interest in signing the fan favourite Aussie during this off-season.

But in the end, it looks like he'll be playing his baseball in the Windy City for the next few years - pending his medical, of course.
