Chicago White Sox pitcher Liam Hendricks has been diagnosed with non-Hodgkin's lymphoma.

Hendricks shared the news in an Instagram post, expressing his determination to fight the cancer and make a full recovery.

The 33-year-old is supported by his wife, family, teammates, and the Chicago White Sox organisation.

Non-Hodgkin's lymphoma is a form of cancer in which white blood cells grow abnormally and can form growths throughout the body.

The Chicago White Sox organization released a statement expressing their support for Hendricks and his family.

Hendricks is a three-time all-star and one of the premier closers in baseball.

He has played for the Minnesota Twins, Kansas City Royals, Toronto Blue Jays, and Oakland Athletics throughout his career.

The team's general manager, Rick Hahn, stated that they are optimistic that Hendricks will pitch for the White Sox again as soon as possible.

Hahn also emphasized the importance of respecting Hendricks and his family's privacy during this time.
