CHICAGO (AP)Liam Hendriks has a full no-trade provision through October in his $54 million, three-year contract with the Chicago White Sox.
For the year after that, through October 2022, the closer can submit a list of 10 teams he can’t be traded to without his consent. From November 2022 through the end of the contract, he can submit a list of five teams he can’t be traded to without his consent.
Hendriks gets a $1 million signing bonus, payable this July 1, and salaries of $11 million this year, $13 million in 2022 and $14 million in 2023.
