There is no indication a deal is especially likely, although it stands to reason a number of clubs would have interest in installing the three-time All-Star into their late-inning mix provided Chicago is willing to make a trade.

White Sox closer Liam Hendriks’ name has come up in trade talks with other clubs, per source. Hendriks has a limited no-trade clause that allows him to veto a deal to five clubs.

Over his 12-year career, Hendriks has appeared in 471 total games and has amassed a career ERA of 3.81 and a K/BB ratio of 724/158, making 115 career saves.

The 33-year old closer is coming off of another impressive season, recording 37 saves and a 2.81 ERA over 58 games. He also struck out 85 batters while only allowing 16 walks, culminating with a second straight All-Star nomination.

Chicago finished this past season with an overall record of 81-81, 11 games behind the NL Central Champion Cleveland Guardians. They already made a splash before the Winter Meeting by signing starting pitcher Mike Clevinger.
