Chicago White Sox place Liam Hendriks on IL, activate Joe Kelly

The Chicago White Sox will be without closer Liam Hendriks for at least two weeks after the closer was placed on the 15-day injured list Tuesday due to a right forearm strain.

The move is retroactive to Saturday.

“It’s a matter of how he responds to treatment over the next few days before we come up with an exact timetable,” White Sox general manager Rick Hahn told reporters.

A two-time All-Star, Hendriks was not available for Monday’s 9-5 win against the Detroit Tigers due to what the team said was a sore arm, but he did play catch before the game.

He is 1-2 with an AL-best 16 saves, a 2.81 ERA and 37 strikeouts in 25 appearances this season. A year ago, he led the league in saves with 38.

In other moves Tuesday, the White Sox reinstated right-hander Joe Kelly (hamstring) from the 15-day IL, recalled righty Davis Martin from Charlotte and optioned lefty Bennett Sousa to the Triple-A affiliate.
