Chicago White Sox Closer Liam Hendriks will return to the active roster on Monday, more than a month after announcing he was in remission following his non-Hodgkin lymphoma diagnosis.
Hendriks, 34, missed the first two months of the season after revealing in early January that he had been diagnosed with Stage 4 non-Hodgkin lymphoma. In early April, he underwent his final round of chemotherapy, and on April 20, he officially announced that he was «cancer free.»
Now, more than a month out of remission, Hendriks is ready to return to the mound.
