Liam Hendriks targeted July 1 for his return when he landed on the injured list.
The Chicago White Sox closer’s prediction turned out to be pretty close.
The Sox reinstated Hendriks from the IL on Monday ahead of a crucial three-game series against the division-leading Minnesota Twins at Guaranteed Rate Field. The Sox also reinstated outfielder Adam Engel from the IL and optioned outfielder Adam Haseley and pitcher Jimmy Lambert to Triple-A Charlotte.
“It was kind of meet in the middle,” Hendriks said Friday in San Francisco.
