Kyle Hendricks served up four runs in five innings, taking a no-decision in Monday's walk-off, 9-8 victory over the Rockies.

Hendricks allowed a two-run home run to Carlos Gonzalez in the third inning and a two-run single to D.J. LeMahieu in the fourth, but the Cubs rallied for six runs in the bottom half of the fourth. The right-hander, overall, gave up seven hits and three walks while striking out four. Hendricks owns a productive 3.81 ERA on the season with a 1.17 WHIP and a 97/23 K/BB ratio over 115 2/3 innings. He'll toe the rubber in Milwaukee against the Brewers this weekend.
Jul 27 - 11:54 PM

Kyle Hendricks struggled early in yielding five overall runs on seven hits over six innings during Wednesday afternoon's 9-1 loss to the Reds.

Hendricks started out the proceedings poorly enough, allowing two-run doubles to Todd Frazier and Eugenio Suarez in the first inning to fall into a 4-0 hole. He calmed down after the rough open, but the early troubles would ultimately result in a loss, dropping his record to 4-5 on the season. Hendricks struck out nine and walked two in the contest. Despite the relatively tough start, he's more than held his own in 2015 and is pitching to a 3.66 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 93/20 K/BB ratio over 110 2/3 innings. A date with the Rockies at Wrigley is up next on his schedule.
Jul 22 - 3:23 PM

Kyle Hendricks yielded two runs (one earned) in 5 2/3 innings Friday in a no-decision against the Braves.

Hendricks' scoreless streak came to an end at 22 1/3 innings on an RBI single to Kelly Johnson in the first inning. All told, he allowed four hits and a walk while notching five strikeouts. After an impressive rookie season, the 25-year-old has a 3.44 ERA and 84/18 K/BB ratio in 104 2/3 innings over 18 starts this season. He'll get the Reds next week on the road.
Jul 17 - 11:11 PM

Kyle Hendricks will start Chicago's first game back from the All-Star break.

He'll be followed, in order, by Jon Lester, Jake Arrieta, Clayton Richard and Jason Hammel. Hendricks has a 3.55 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 79/17 K/BB ratio across 99 innings.
Jul 11 - 1:34 PM

Kyle Hendricks fired seven scoreless innings against the White Sox on Friday afternoon but came away with a no-decision.

The right-hander punched out four on the day and didn't issue a walk. Unfortunately for him, Carlos Rodon was just as good on the other side of the diamond and the two sides traded zeroes until the eighth inning. He'll head into the All-Star break with a 3.55 ERA, 1.12 WHIP and 79/17 K/BB ratio across 99 innings.
Jul 10 - 6:53 PM

Kyle Hendricks was on his game in Sunday's 2-0 win over the Marlins, tossing 7 1/3 innings of shutout baseball.

Hendricks and Marlins starter Mat Latos were locked into an old school pitcher's duel, with both pitchers lasting through seven innings. It was Hendricks who persevered for the victory, improving to 4-4 on the year. He'll carry a 3.82 ERA and 1.15 WHIP into his next start, a home showdown with the rival White Sox.
Jul 5 - 5:19 PM

Kyle Hendricks held the Mets scoreless over six innings in Tuesday's 1-0 victory.

Hendricks allowed just three hits and a walk over his six innings. He struck out six in the effort. The win was his first since June 7, raising his record to 3-4 with a 4.15 ERA and 1.18 WHIP. More than that, it righted the ship a bit after a few tough starts for the 25-year-old. He'll try to keep it going Sunday at the Marlins.
Jun 30 - 9:54 PM

Kyle Hendricks yielded four runs in five innings Wednesday in a loss to the Dodgers.

A pair of homers accounted for all of the damage. He threw just 71 pitches over the five innings, but with his spot due up in the bottom of the fifth, the Cubs had little choice other than to pinch-hit for him. After 14 starts this year, Hendricks has a disappointing 4.46 ERA, a fine 1.22 WHIP and an abysmal two victories. Bad luck has played a role in the win total, for sure, but so has his tendency to wear down quickly in the middle innings. Hendricks deserves to keep his rotation spot, but he's just an NL-only guy right now.
Jun 24 - 11:41 PM

Kyle Hendricks was slaughtered in Friday's loss to the Twins, allowing seven runs (six earned) on 11 hits in his five innings.

Hendricks struck out one on the night and issued one walk. Trevor Plouffe did most of the damage against him, drilling a pair of two-run doubles. It marks the third time this season that Hendricks has allowed five or more runs in a start. Each of the previous two times, he bounced back with a strong effort his next time out. Fantasy owners should keep that in mind when he takes on the Dodgers on Wednesday.
Jun 19 - 11:03 PM

Kyle Hendricks surrendered three runs (two earned) over five innings in Sunday's win over the Nationals.

Hendricks struck out four without walking a batter. He scattered six hits over his relatively brief time on the mound, with two runs coming in on a homer by Ian Desmond in the second inning and another run scoring in the fifth on a Yunel Escobar RBI single. The win evened his record at 2-2. He'll take a 3.96 ERA and 1.18 WHIP into his next start, a home outing against the Reds.
Jun 7 - 7:52 PM

Kyle Hendricks allowed four runs over six innings of work in Tuesday's loss to the Marlins.

Hendricks had navigated the Marlins lineup safely for much of the evening, including racking up seven strikeouts, before loading the bases in the fifth. A subsequent Marcell Ozuna double cleared them and saddled Hendricks with his second loss of the year. The right-hander is now 1-2 with a 3.99 ERA and 1.18 WHIP through 10 starts this year. He'll try to draw his record even when the Cubs visit the Nationals on Sunday.
Jun 2 - 9:46 PM

Kyle Hendricks limited the Nationals to one run in seven innings, taking a no-decision in Tuesday's walk-off 3-2 victory.

Hendricks was working on a shutout until Bryce Harper clubbed a home run to left-center. The young right-hander allowed only four hits in total while walking two and striking out four. Hendricks has been hit or miss this season, but has been mostly hit in the month of May as he was coming off of a shutout of the Padres in his previous start. He carries a 3.76 ERA, a 1.14 WHIP, and a 41/11 k/BB ratio in 52 2/3 innings, which he'll bring into a road start versus the Marlins.
May 26 - 10:09 PM

Kyle Hendricks fired a complete game shutout on Thursday against the Padres, striking out seven in a 3-0 win.

It was the Cubs' first complete game shutout of the season. Hendricks (4.14 ERA) scattered five hits and didn't walk a batter. The right-hander was so efficient and in control that Joe Maddon allowed him to bat in the top of the ninth inning in order to polish off the shutout in the bottom half. The outing itself came out of nowhere, as Hendricks hadn't topped six innings in an appearance all season. Doing so allowed him to notch his first win of the season while recording his first career complete game. The 25-year-old will try for an encore next week against the Nationals.
May 21 - 11:32 PM

Kyle Hendricks had a mixed-bag of a start against the Pirates on Friday, striking out seven but also allowing five runs over 5 2/3 innings.

The Cubs spotted Hendricks a 7-1 lead, but Hendricks blew almost the entirety of that and the game was 7-5 by the time he exited in the sixth inning. He struck out seven and walked one in the contest. Hendricks had been pitching to an ERA in the mid-4.00's, but this rough outing upped the number to 5.15. He also holds a 1.34 WHIP. Hendricks will try to lower those numbers when he takes to the road for a start against the Padres.
