LIAM HENDRIKS RUMORS

Oakland A's reliever Liam Hendriks has been great since returning from the DL

When the Oakland A's acquired reliever Liam Hendriks from the Blue Jays last winter, they hoped they were getting a strong up-and-coming reliever.

A's not done revamping bullpen after adding Hendriks to mix

Last week, the Oakland Athletics took a flier on veteran lefty Rich Hill, agreeing to terms on a one-year deal for 2016. The addition of Hill to a rotation that didn't have much extra room created a bit of a surplus for the A's, and shortly therefter they dealt right-hander Jesse Chavez to the Toronto Blue Jays in exchange for reliever Liam Hendriks. As Susan Slusser of the San...

In 58 relief appearances, Hendriks...
