The A’s have another player, reliever Jake Diekman, who is considered at-risk because of his history of ulcerative colitis, and pitching coach Scott Emerson has Type 2 diabetes and high-blood pressure, so Hendriks tries to spend as much time near them as possible when social distancing is a little more difficult.

But last year he was sunk by his . batting average, which in turn limited his OBP potential, and this time around he’s starting out with much healthier rates in those categories as more of his batted balls fall in for hits.
