Kyle Hendricks allowed one run in 7 2/3 innings and was credited with a 4-1 win over the Cardinals on Saturday.

He had a shutout going until the last batter he faced (Matt Carpenter) hit a solo home run in the eighth inning. Hendricks notched five strikeouts, issued one walk and surrendered six base hits in the gem effort. He missed six weeks with a hand injury this summer and is now 7-5 with a cool 3.22 ERA in 22 starts. He has accumulated 108 strikeouts and 38 walks in 128 2/3 innings.
Sep 16 - 7:42 PM

Kyle Hendricks yielded three earned runs over six innings Sunday as the Cubs fell to the Brewers.

Hendricks got just one run of support in the Cubs' eventual 3-1 loss. He struck out seven batters but issued two walks and gave up four hits, including a go-ahead two-run homer to Travis Shaw in the top of the sixth inning. The right-hander is now 6-5 on the season with a 3.35 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 103/37 K/BB ratio in 121 innings. Up next is a big matchup against the rival Cardinals.
Sep 10 - 5:21 PM

Kyle Hendricks held the Pirates to two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday.

He struck out just two batters on the night, but Hendricks was able to keep the Pirates in check other than a Jordan Luplow blast in the second inning. The right-hander still hasn’t given up more than three runs in any of his nine outings since returning from the disabled list, posting a 2.36 ERA over that span. He’s put up those numbers even as his velocity continues to tumble in the wrong direction. Hendricks’ next start will come Sunday against the Brewers.
Sep 5 - 9:57 PM

Kyle Hendricks held the Braves to two runs -- one earned -- over 6 2/3 innings in a win Thursday.

Hendricks scattered five hits and three walks in his time, using five strikeouts and a high ground ball rate to escape most threats. The win improved him to 6-4 with a 3.32 ERA and 1.24 WHIP through 19 starts altogether. He's the owner of four consecutive quality starts and will look to make it five next Tuesday when the Cubs travel to Pittsburgh to take on the Pirates.
Sep 1 - 12:37 AM

Kyle Hendricks held the Phillies to two runs over seven innings, striking out eight, in a win Saturday.

Hendricks was a lot better than he needed to be on a night when his offense scored 17 runs. The right-hander gave up a two-run homer to Rhys Hoskins in the first inning -- who hasn't? -- but settled in to fire six more scoreless frames. The win got him back over .500, improving his record to 5-4 with a 3.45 ERA and 1.24 WHIP in 18 starts. The 27-year-old will square off with the Braves on Thursday.
Aug 26 - 11:34 PM

Kyle Hendricks yielded three earned runs over six innings Sunday in a no-decision versus the Blue Jays.

Chicago won the game in extra innings, well after Hendricks had been removed. The right-hander walked two batters and surrendered six hits, including a game-tying solo homer to former teammate Miguel Montero in the top of the sixth inning. Hendricks will bring a 3.52 ERA into his next start on the road against the last-place Phillies.
Aug 20 - 6:17 PM

Kyle Hendricks was wild but managed to hold the Reds off the scoreboard for six-plus innings in a no-decision Tuesday.

Hendricks handed out four free passes and has now walked an uncharacteristic seven over his last two starts. He managed to dodge trouble in this one, though, with the help of six strikeouts and Carl Edwards bailing him out in the seventh after Hendricks was pulled after letting the first two runners on. He's yet to pick up a win, but Hendricks has mostly pitched well since returning from the disabled list. He'll get the Blue Jays at home on Sunday.
Aug 15 - 11:31 PM

Kyle Hendricks allowed one run on five hits over 4 2/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Wednesday's loss to the Giants.

Hendricks struck out five and walked three on the afternoon. Outside of an RBI single surrendered to Joe Panik in the second inning, he managed to keep the scoreboard clean over his 4 2/3 frames on the mound. The 27-year-old right-hander will bring a 3.70 ERA and 1.25 WHIP into a home start against the Reds when he next takes the ball.
Aug 9 - 7:08 PM

Kyle Hendricks pitched well but took a loss Friday, yielding three runs over seven frames against the Nationals.

The longball did him in, and it was Daniel Murphy that got him both times, as the Nationals' second baseman hit a two-run shot and a solo blast off of Hendricks. They were two of just five hits on the day that the right permitted, and he walked two and struck out five. Hendricks hasn't picked up a win in any of his three starts since returning from the disabled list, but he's pitched pretty well each time out. He gets the Giants on the road next.
Aug 4 - 5:56 PM

Kyle Hendricks allowed one run over five innings of work in a no-decision Saturday against the Brewers.

Hendricks scattered six hits without walking a batter and striking out three in the outing. He's now allowed two runs without issuing a walk over 9 1/3 innings since returning from the disabled list, a good sign for the Cubs and Hendricks, even if he doesn't have the wins to show for it. A return to something even close to his 2016 form would be a huge addition to the team's rotation at this stage. Hendricks will keep working toward regaining that form Friday against the Nationals.
Jul 30 - 12:13 AM

Making his first start in the majors since early June, Kyle Hendricks allowed just one run but lasted only 4 1/3 innings in Monday's no-decision versus the White Sox.

The good news is that he gave up just the one run and struck out five without walking anyone. The bad news is he surrendered eight hits and needed 92 pitches to cover his 4 1/3 frames. Hendricks pitched well on his rehab assignment and insisted that he was feeling like he did last season, but the results in his first outing back were mixed. He'll try for a better line this weekend in Milwaukee.
Jul 24 - 7:57 PM

Cubs activated RHP Kyle Hendricks from the 10-day disabled list.

Hendricks is finally ready to rock after missing six weeks due to tendinitis in his pitching hand. He'll return Monday against the White Sox. Hendricks was off to an underwhelming start prior to the injury, posting a 4.09 ERA and 51/21 K/BB ratio in 61 2/3 innings over 11 starts.
Jul 24 - 11:06 AM

Kyle Hendricks (hand) will rejoin the Cubs' rotation on Monday.

Hendricks has been sidelined for the past six weeks while recovering from tendinitis in his hand. The right-hander owns a 4.09 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 51/21 K/BB ratio across 61 2/3 innings on the season.
Jul 22 - 1:50 PM

Cubs manager Joe Maddon said Friday that Kyle Hendricks (hand) is "ready to rock" and could rejoin the rotation early next week.

Hendricks spun five perfect innings in his final rehab start Monday to show the Cubs he was ready. He's been out since early June because of tendinitis in his pitching hand. Mike Montgomery will head back to the bullpen when Hendricks returns, although it's possible he'll get one more start first.
