TFD: Former Twins P Liam Hendriks was the Class AAA All-Star MVP

hendriksHow’s former Twins pitcher Liam Hendriks doing?

GREAT! He was the All-Star Game MVP!

Well, OK, let’s downgrade that a little. Hendriks is doing well for his situation, which is pretty much the same as it was with the Twins: terrific at the highest level of minor league ball, but pretty meh when he got to the majors.

Hendriks is 7-1 with a 2.19 ERA for the Buffalo Bisons of Class AAA, which earned him a spot in the Triple-A All-Star Game. There, he threw two scoreless innings to earn the game MVP honors.

Hendriks has made three starts with the Blue Jays this season as well, and though two of them were pretty good, the third (1.2 IP, 6 ER) left his MLB ERA at 6.08 for the season.

If that sounds familiar, Hendriks was 9-3 with a 2.20 ERA in 2012 at Class AAA Rochester, then 1-8 with a 5.59 ERA with the Twins that season.

That said, Hendriks is still only 25, so it remains possible that he will still find sustained MLB success — albeit not with the Twins.
