Orioles designated RHP Liam Hendriks for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-signed Ubaldo Jimenez on the 40-man roster. Hendriks, who made two starts and eight relief appearances with the Twins last season, could soon be with his fourth organization since December.

Orioles claimed RHP Liam Hendriks off waivers from the Cubs.

It has been a busy month for Hendriks, who was designated for assignment by the Twins on December 5, claimed by the Cubs on December 13, and will now head to Baltimore. The 24-year-old native of Perth, Australia owns a 6.06 ERA in 156 career major league innings.

Cubs claimed RHP Liam Hendriks off waivers from the Twins.

Hendriks was designated for assignment earlier this month as the Twins made room on the 40-man roster for Phil Hughes. The right-hander has a career 6.06 ERA over 156 innings at the big league level, but he's put up a 2.99 mark in the minors and will turn just 25 in February. The Cubs seem likely to either give him a shot as a reliever or stick him in their Triple-A rotation.

Twins designated RHP Liam Hendriks for assignment.

The move clears a spot for the newly-signed Phil Hughes on the 40-man roster. Hendriks has enjoyed success in the minors, but the 24-year-old Aussie owns an ugly 6.06 ERA over 28 starts and two relief appearances in the majors.

Liam Hendriks lasted just two-thirds of an inning and gave up seven runs Monday against the White Sox.

Ugly. Hendriks allowed five hits and walked three before being pulled. He's pitched a total of 10 innings in his three starts this month. Perhaps he'll finish the season in the rotation anyway, but he's not pushing to be included in the Twins' 2014 plans.

Liam Hendriks allowed three runs over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the A's on Tuesday.

Hendriks gave up seven hits while striking out six in the game. The right-hander has been a mixed bag in seven starts thus far, owning a 1-2 record and 5.25 ERA. The Twins are one of a few teams that have gone to a six-man rotation in the season's final stages, so Hendriks will likely get the White Sox in Chicago early next week.

Liam Hendriks earned his first win of the season Friday after holding the Rangers to two runs (one earned) over six innings.

Hendriks gave up five hits and walked three while throwing just 50 out of 97 pitches for strikes, so he was far from sharp, but he managed to keep his team in the game until the offense finally got to Yu Darvish. Still, with a 5.13 ERA through five starts this season, he can be avoided in fantasy leagues.

Liam Hendriks was hammered in Saturday’s loss to the Indians, allowing seven runs on seven hits over 4 1/3 innings.

Hendriks walked one on the evening and did not record a strikeout. His biggest problem stemmed from his inability to keep the ball in the yard, with Carlos Santana and Jason Kipnis each belting two-run homers. It was his first start in the rotation since replacing Kyle Gibson, and as disastrous as it was it will be interesting to see if he gets the ball again on Friday against the Rangers in Arlington.

Twins recalled RHP Liam Hendriks from Triple-A Rochester.

Hendriks will start Saturday against the Indians. He returns to a 3.94 ERA over 16 innings and is replacing Kyle Gibson in the starting rotation.

Liam Hendriks is likely to be recalled to start Saturday in Cleveland.

He'll be taking the rotation spot of Kyle Gibson, who was sent down following another poor outing Monday. Hendriks threw eight scoreless in his last start with Triple-A Rochester, but he has a 4.67 mark overall at the level and should be avoided for fantasy purposes.

Twins optioned RHP Liam Hendricks to Triple-A Rochester.

Hendriks gave up just two runs on seven hits over six innings in his spot start Friday against the White Sox. He'll return to a 5.12 ERA at the Triple-A level.

Liam Hendriks pitched well in his spot start during the nightcap of Friday’s doubleheader against the White Sox, allowing a pair of runs on seven hits over six innings.

Hendriks struck out three while issuing one free pass on the evening. Both of the runs he allowed were on solo homers, by Alexei Ramirez in the fourth and Blake Tekotte in the sixth inning. He'll likely head right back to Triple-A Rochester where he'll continue to provide rotational depth for the Twins.

Twins recalled RHP Liam Hendriks from Triple-A Rochester.

Hendriks will get the ball in the second game of Friday's doubleheader versus the White Sox. Though he's pitched better of late, he owns a 5.12 ERA over 14 starts in Triple-A this season and should be avoided in fantasy.
Fri, Aug 9, 2013 01:53:00 PM

The Twins will recall right-hander Liam Hendriks to start in Friday's doubleheader against the White Sox.

He'll function as the 26th man for the doubleheader. Hendriks made two appearances for the twins earlier this season and owns a 5.12 ERA over 14 starts in Triple-A. He's not a recommended option in fantasy leagues.
