The White Sox’ Liam Hendricks faces particular challenges in the thin air of Colorado.

DENVER — Coors Field brings all kinds of challenges to visiting teams, including the effects of altitude on baseball and the players’ bodies.

“When I get high, I’m a mess,” closer Liam Hendricks told OlxPraca.

Hendrix is ​​taking medication for the series, he said, to combat reactions to thin air.

“If I don’t take the meds, I throw up every time I do anything physical,” she said. “And if I take it, I lose feeling in my left hand and foot in between the dizziness and stuff like that. Yeah, it’s a great series to be in.

No need to worry, though. Hendricks had two home runs, 1, before the Sox opened a two-game series with the Rockies without incident. 23 Innings to record save for the Athletics in 2020, and getting the save for the American League in the 2021 All-Star Game.

But Hendricks, who stayed in a hotel and rested during the team’s off-day on Monday, had concerns ahead of Tuesday’s series opener.

“Small sample size, and anything can change after an exit, especially in Colorado,” he said.

Hendricks remembers one game from 2014 vividly. Chasing the Triple-A Omaha Storm against the Colorado Springs Sky Sox this year, Hendricks threw seven innings of four-run ball and retired after each inning, he said.

“It was bad for me but bad for the rest of the team because they couldn’t use the bathroom,” he said.

“It is what it is. You’re always going to play in situations that aren’t perfect. It’s a matter of showing character and dealing with it.

Robert is eligible Friday but is unlikely to return.

Center fielder Louis Robert, on the injured list with lightheadedness and concussion, is eligible but unlikely to come off the injured list Friday. Robert still hasn’t gotten over the symptoms.

“He seems to be getting better every day except he’s still being tested,” manager Tony La Russa said. “He’s improved and he’s doing more baseball things, but other than that…

“The IL date is Friday but he hasn’t played much, so, first things first. The smart thing to do is when he’s actually cleared to compete and then. Hope for the best.”

Ceasefire feat

Dylann Seaz made his 11th straight start in which he allowed one run or fewer on Sunday, becoming the third starter in the modern era to accomplish the feat (per stathead), joining the Mets’ Jacob deGrom and Cardinals great Bob Gibson in 1968.

This and that

Lucas Giolito, coming off his shortest outing of the season (three innings, six runs) against the Indians, makes his first career start Wednesday at Coors Field. Katz and pitching coach Ethan Katz continue to iron out some mechanical issues for the 2019 All-Star.

“He’s working very hard to get back on track to where he’s been,” Katz said Tuesday. “We like where he’s at and where he’s going.”

*Jose Abreu went into the game with a 27-game on-base streak, the second-longest of his career and two shy of his career-best set in 2016.

*Lance Lane (Friday), Johnny Cueto (Saturday) and Cease (Sunday) are lined up to face the Athletics at Guaranteed Rate Field this weekend.
