A’s closer Liam Hendriks is keeping tabs on the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) across a number of fronts, Including his current location of Arizona, his permanent home in Florida, and the motherland down under.

“A lot of the stores are barren,” Hendriks said regarding Australia on Thursday night. “My dad went to the shops the other day, and said the only meat products at the butcher was a bone marrow. And the pasta aisle was knocked out.” 

Meanwhile stateside, his conversations with fellow baseball players greatly center around the unknown.

“Behind the scenes there’s just a lot of basic business stuff,” Hendriks said. “Like what is going on right now? Other facilities that are open. Are they not open? What can we do? Go home or stay here?”
