Kyle Hendricks pitched well in Wednesday's win over the Padres, striking out eight while allowing two runs over six innings.
Hendricks scattered four hits and walked two on the afternoon. A Brett Wallace sacrifice fly in the second and a Wil Myers RBI triple in the third spelled the scoring damage on his line. The 26-year-old right-hander has been nothing short of phenomenal this season and will carry a 2.19 ERA and 1.00 WHIP into a home date with the Pirates next time he toes the rubber. Aug 24 - 7:48 PM

Kyle Hendricks scattered five hits and two runs over seven strong innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Cardinals.

It was another impressive showing for Hendricks, who matched a career-high with 12 strikeouts and didn't walk anyone. Saturday actually increased his ERA from 2.17 to 2.19. Hendricks has been an absolute monster since the All-Star break, supplying a ridiculous 1.31 ERA over six second-half starts. The surprise Cy Young contender will be tested Friday when the Cubs travel to hitter-friendly Coors Field in Colorado.

Kyle Hendricks tossed 7 1/3 innings of one-run ball Sunday in the Cubs' 3-1 win over the A's.

Another outstanding effort from MLB's leader in ERA (2.17), excluding the injured Clayton Kershaw (1.79). Hendricks yielded just three hits on Sunday and struck out four without issuing a walk. The one run against him came on a solo shot from Marcus Semien in the bottom of the eighth inning, which prompted Cubs manager Joe Maddon to go to his bullpen. Hendricks might not have the strikeout rate to win it, but he's going to get votes for the NL Cy Young Award the way this season is headed. A meeting with the rival Cardinals is next.
Aug 7 - 7:21 PM

Kyle Hendricks notched his second career shutout Monday, holding the Marlins to seven hits and three walks in a 5-0 victory.

Hendricks needed just 108 pitches to complete a shutout of the Padres last season. He required a career-high 123 offerings on Monday but was able to finish it off, erasing a one-out walk of Marcell Ozuna by getting J.T. Realmuto to ground into a game-ending double play. Hendricks has now been unscored upon in four out of his last five starts, even mixing in a two-inning scoreless relief appearance. He'll carry a sparkling 2.22 ERA into Oakland this weekend. It's an ERA bested only by Clayton Kershaw and Madison Bumgarner.
Aug 1 - 11:45 PM

Kyle Hendricks tossed 6 1/3 scoreless innings Wednesday in the Cubs' 6-2 win over the Mets.

Hendricks scattered seven hits -- two doubles, five singles -- over his 6 1/3 shutout frames. He yielded just one walk and struck out seven. The right-hander continues to dominate under the radar, now boasting a 2.27 ERA and 96/30 K/BB ratio over 111 innings this season. Hendricks gets the crosstown White Sox next.
Jul 20 - 5:25 PM

Kyle Hendricks fired six scoreless innings Friday in the Cubs' 6-0 blanking of the Rangers.

Hendricks scattered three hits and two walks over his six shutout frames, and all three of those hits were singles. He also struck out three and induced 10 groundouts. Hendricks is quietly putting together a fantastic season, now with a 2.41 ERA, 1.02 WHIP, and 89/29 K/BB ratio through 104 2/3 innings. He gets the Mets at home next.
Jul 15 - 5:19 PM

Kyle Hendricks held the Reds to just one unearned run over 5 1/3 innings Monday in a 10-4 win.

Hendricks struck out just two, but he gave up only four hits -- three singles -- and one walk. The righty wasn't efficient, though, needing 100 pitches to cover 5 1/3 frames. Hendricks hasn't been going terribly deep into games of late but has given up only three earned runs over his last four outings. He'll face the Pirates this weekend.
Jul 4 - 5:49 PM

Kyle Hendricks allowed two runs over 6 2/3 innings in a 9-2 win over the Reds on Wednesday.

Both runs scored in the fourth inning, including a solo homer from Adam Duvall. Hendricks threw a career-high 117 pitches in the victory while striking out five and walking a pair. And while this doesn't matter to fantasy owners, he also dropped down a nice squeeze bunt to score a run. The 26-year-old now sits at 6-6 with a 2.76 ERA. He’ll face the Reds again next time out, but this time at home in Chicago.
Jun 29 - 4:13 PM

Kyle Hendricks took a no-decision despite giving up only one base hit against the Marlins on Friday, allowing four runs (none earned) in five innings with five strikeouts and four walks.

The only hit Hendricks allowed was a grand slam by Justin Bour in the first inning, but those runs were all unearned due to an error by Addison Russell. Hendricks uncharacteristically struggled with his control, walking four and burning 105 pitches in only five innings. Hendricks will take his 2.76 ERA and 1.02 WHIP into his next start on Wednesday in Cincinnati.
Jun 24 - 11:32 PM

Kyle Hendricks was in dominant form in Sunday night's victory over the Pirates, punching out a career-high 12 batters over six innings of one-run ball.

Hendricks allowed seven hits on the evening and didn't issue a free pass. The lone blemish on his night was a solo shot off the bat of Josh Harrison in the fourth inning. He has been outstanding for the Cubs this season, compiling a 2.82 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 73/19 K/BB ratio over 79 2/3 innings. He'll look to extend that dominance when he does battle against the Marlins in Miami on Friday.
Jun 19 - 11:35 PM

Kyle Hendricks was charged with four runs -- three earned -- over 5 1/3 frames in Monday's loss to the Nationals.

Hendricks pitched well for most of the night, but the Nationals eventually got to him in the sixth inning with three hits -- including a homer -- and three runs (although one scored after Hendricks was pulled). It's the first time in five starts that the righty allowed more than two runs. He'll carry a 3.05 ERA into this weekend's matchup versus the Pirates.
Jun 13 - 10:17 PM

Kyle Hendricks yielded two runs over five innings of work in Tuesday's loss to the Phillies.

Hendricks struck out six and gave up only four hits, but one of them was a home run and Cubs manager Joe Maddon chose to pinch-hit for him to lead off the sixth. It certainly wasn't a bad showing, but it was tied for Hendrick's shortest outing of the year and it came against the Phillies. He'll get the Nationals and Pirates next week.
Jun 7 - 10:28 PM

Kyle Hendricks pitched eight innings of two-run ball to defeat the Dodgers on Thursday.

Hendricks made it look pretty easy today, allowing just three hits, walking one and striking out six against a Dodgers team that's been struggling offensively. Hendricks has a 2.84 ERA and a 0.93 WHIP despite the fact that he's averaging about 87 mph with his fastball this year. It's hard to imagine him continuing to perform this well, but with the Cubs offense and bullpen supporting him, he should remain valuable all year long.
Jun 2 - 5:03 PM

Kyle Hendricks logged his second career complete game in Saturday's one-run, five-hit domination of the Phillies.

Hendricks struck out seven and didn't walk a batter in the ballgame. He made a bid for his first career shutout, until Freddy Galvis doubled, advanced on a ground ball and stole home in the ninth inning. Now 3-4 on the season, he'll carry a terrific 2.93 ERA and 0.96 WHIP into Thursday's start against the Nationals.
May 28 - 4:55 PM

Kyle Hendricks pitched well in a losing effort against the Giants on Sunday night, allowing just one run on three hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Hendricks also walked three while striking out only one in the ballgame. The lone run scored against him came in an RBI double by opposing pitcher Madison Bumgarner in the fifth inning. Hendricks, who has been terrific for the Cubs this year, will carry a 3.11 ERA and 1.04 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Phillies.
