Kyle Hendricks pitched a pair of scoreless innings versus the Padres in Monday's loss.

Hendricks allowed three hits, walked none, and struck out one in the outing. The 25-year-old right-hander impressed last season, finishing with a 2.46 ERA and a 47/15 K/BB ratio in 80 1/3 innings across 13 starts. Hendricks will pitch out of the number four slot in the rotation.
Mar 9 - 7:38 PM

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Monday that Kyle Hendricks is a lock for the starting rotation.

Hendricks posted an excellent 2.46 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, and 47/15 K/BB ratio over 80 1/3 frames (13 starts) last season with the Cubs. It was an easy call for Maddon to commit a rotation spot to the 25-year-old righty, who should carry decent value in most standard fantasy leagues.
Mar 2 - 2:11 PM

Kyle Hendricks will not make his scheduled start for the Cubs on Sunday.

Initially, Hendricks had been tabbed to work the season finale, but the Cubs are monitoring his workload and will shut him down after 183 innings between Triple-A and the majors. He posted a terrific 2.46 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 47/15 K/BB ratio over 80 1/3 frames in 13 starts with the Cubs.

Kyle Hendricks allowed three runs, including a two-run homer, over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals Tuesday.

Hendricks was rolling along until the sixth inning, when the Cardinals pushed a run across before Matt Holliday hit a line drive two-run homer to tie the score. It also marked the end of the night for Hendricks, who finished with five hits and a walk allowed. If Tuesday was Hendricks' final turn in 2014, he'll finish 7-2 with a 2.46 ERA and an inside track at a starting rotation spot in 2015.

Kyle Hendricks limited the Reds to one run in seven innings Wednesday to improve to 7-2 on the season.

The Reds replaced their entire starting lineup after getting one-hit by Jake Arrieta on Tuesday, and the group that Hendricks beat tonight was quite comparable to most of the lineups he faced in the PCL before getting promoted this summer. Hendricks allowed seven hits, but all except for one was a single and he didn't walk anyone. It was also his fifth straight start without allowing a homer, which is the biggest reason he has a 2.28 ERA at the moment.

Kyle Hendricks took his second loss of the season after yielding four runs over 5 2/3 innings on Wednesday against the Blue Jays.

Hendricks allowed just one run through five, but tired in the sixth as the Jays pushed across three more runs. It marked the first time since July 10, his major league debut, that he allowed more than two runs in a start. Overall, Hendricks gave up six hits and a pair of walks while striking out five. The 24-year-old has been quite good so far. He'll take his 2.38 ERA and 39/14 K/BB ratio into Tuesday's start at home against the Reds.

Kyle Hendricks continued to pitch well, earning his sixth win after allowing two runs over 5 2/3 innings against the Brewers on Wednesday.

Hendricks has not allowed more than two runs in an outing since making his major league debut on July 10. The right-hander allowed nine hits, didn't issue a walk, and failed to record a strikeout. Nevertheless an impressive showing from the 24-year-old, who now has a 2.02 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 34/12 K/BB ratio over 10 starts. Hendricks will try to keep it going when he takes on the Blue Jays in Toronto on Tuesday.

Kyle Hendricks delivered another strong start in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Friday, allowing just two runs on five hits over his six innings of work.

The young right-hander punched out three on the night while issuing only one free pass. The Cardinals scratched out a pair of runs against him in the first inning, but that would be the extent of the damage as he bore down and settled in nicely afterwards. He now boasts a terrific 1.91 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 34/12 K/BB ratio through his first 56 2/3 innings with the Cubs. He’ll look to keep it rolling when he takes on the Brewers on Wednesday.

Kyle Hendricks gave up two runs in two innings Saturday in a no-decision versus the Orioles.

A long rain delay saved him from what could have been an even uglier start. Hendricks gave up two doubles and a run in the top of the first inning and then another run on two singles and a double in the top of the second. Hendricks still has a shiny 1.78 ERA and 1.01 WHIP, but the success should not be expected to last. He'll face the Cardinals in St. Louis next.

Kyle Hendricks delivered seven innings of one-run ball Monday in the Cubs' 4-1 victory over the Mets.

Hendricks was yet again in full control, limiting the Mets to three hits and two walks over his seven impressive frames while fanning three. The only run he allowed was on a Lucas Duda solo shot in the bottom of the fourth. Hendricks is now 5-1 with a 1.66 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 29/11 K/BB ratio in 48 2/3 innings this season. The success feels a bit fluky, but he can no longer be ignored in mixed fantasy leagues. A tough test is next in the Orioles.
Mon, Aug 18, 2014 03:28:00 PM

Kyle Hendricks shut out the Brewers over 7 1/3 innings in the Cubs' 3-0 shutout victory on Tuesday.

Hendricks scattered six singles and a walk, striking out five in the stellar outing. He's now turned in five straight starts of at least 6 1/3 innings with two or fewer runs allowed. That gives him a 4-1 record and 1.73 ERA through six starts this year. Hendricks is quickly moving into mixed league consideration with his pitching, and he'll take on the Mets in New York on Sunday.
Tue, Aug 12, 2014 10:56:00 PM

Kyle Hendricks completed eight innings and held the Rockies to two runs in Thursday's win.

Hendricks doesn't miss a whole lot of bats, but in his last three starts, he's walked a total of two batters and given up just a lone solo home run. Overall, he's 3-1 with a 2.10 ERA, with the lone loss coming in a 1-0 game. His peripherals say he's been lucky so far, but if he keeps getting grounders and avoiding walks, he won't fall far.
Thu, Aug 7, 2014 06:39:00 PM

Kyle Hendricks allowed two runs -- one earned -- and four hits over seven innings in beating the Dodgers on Friday.

Hendricks only occasionally touches 90 mph on the gun, but he's been effective so far with his four-pitch mix, going 2-1 with a 2.05 ERA in four starts. We still wouldn't consider him mixed-league material.
Sat, Aug 2, 2014 01:41:00 AM

Kyle Hendricks took a tough-luck loss on Sunday, allowing one run over 6 1/3 innings against the Cardinals.

Hendricks served up a solo home run to Matt Holliday in the first inning, but he shut down the Cardinals over the rest of his time. The run is the only one he's given up over his last 13 1/3 innings, as he's got a 2.33 ERA and 1.19 WHIP through three starts this year. He's got another tough test on the agenda Friday when the Cubs visit the Dodgers.
