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.
May 15 - 7:25 PM

Kyle Hendricks did not allow a run over 5 1/3 innings in Sunday's contest against the Brewers.

Hendricks was locked into an old-fashioned pitcher's duel with Matt Garza in this one. Neither starter allowed a run until the sixth inning, when Garza served up a solo homer to Miguel Montero. Over his 5 1/3 innings, Hendricks allowed five hits, struck out three and walked two. The outing lowered his ERA to 4.65 and dropped his WHIP to 1.29. He'll take on the Pirates in his next start.
May 10 - 5:41 PM

Kyle Hendricks allowed four runs in five innings in a no-decision Tuesday against the Cardinals.

Hendricks was given a three-run lead heading into the bottom of the fifth inning, but the right-hander gave up a double, hit a batter and allowed a Matt Carpenter three-run homer to tie the score. Hendricks gave up six hits and walked two on the night. It's been a frustrating start to the season for Hendricks, who is still looking for his first win. He'll keep searching Sunday against the Brewers.
May 6 - 12:54 AM

Kyle Hendricks limited the Pirates to two runs over five innings on Wednesday, but was handed a loss.

A fourth-inning RBI single by Jung Ho Kang and a fifth-inning bases-loaded walk to Starling Marte accounted for the two runs the right-hander allowed. Overall, he gave up five hits, walked three, and struck out six. Hendricks, who finished with a 2.46 ERA in 13 starts last season, hasn't been too effective over his first four starts to the 2015 season. Wednesday's outing lowered his ERA to 5.23 and he carries a 1.21 WHIP and a 19/4 K/BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings as well. Hendricks will look for better results in his next start, when he takes on the Cardinals in St. Louis.
Apr 29 - 11:18 PM

Kyle Hendricks got a no-decision in Thursday's 5-4 loss to the Pirates, allowing three runs in 5 1/3 innings.

Hendricks was stingy through the first five innings, allowing only one run on a Sean Rodriguez home run, but tired in the sixth to allow the Pirates to rally. The right-hander sandwiched a ground out between two doubles, leading to the first of three Pirate runs in the frame. Overall, he allowed five hits, walked none, and struck out two. A weak start on April 12 has skewed Hendricks' ERA, as his current 5.74 ERA isn't indicative of how he has pitched in his last two outings. He'll look to keep improving in his next start against the Pirates at home.
Apr 23 - 4:00 PM

Kyle Hendricks yielded two runs over six innings Saturday in a no-decision against the Padres.

Hendricks surrendered a two-run homer to Matt Kemp in the first inning, but he held the Padres off the board the rest of the way. All told, he gave up just three hits to go along with no walks and eight strikeouts. While he didn't get the win, it was a solid bounceback outing after he got blasted by the Rockies in his season debut last week. He'll bring a 6.10 ERA into a start against the Pirates on the road next week.
Apr 18 - 6:41 PM

Kyle Hendricks allowed five runs over 4 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Rockies on Sunday.

Hendricks surrendered eight hits, struck out three and walked one in the contest. The Rockies touched him up for four runs in a big second inning, the big blow coming in the form of a three-run double off the bat of D.J. LeMahieu. Hendricks pitched well in 13 starts for the Cubs in 2014, posting a 2.46 ERA in 80 1/3 innings, but there's good reason to expect regression in 2015. He'll take on the Padres in his next outing.
Apr 12 - 8:32 PM

Kyle Hendricks threw a perfect second inning in Saturday's 4-2 loss to the Diamondbacks.

Three up, three down for Hendricks, who will pitch fifth in the Cubs' rotation. The 25-year-old impressed last season with a 2.46 ERA and a 47/15 K/BB ratio in 80 1/3 innings. Fantasy owners shouldn't expect as much success this season over a larger sample size.
Apr 4 - 7:13 PM

Kyle Hendricks was great until the sixth inning, allowing five runs in 5 1/3 innings in Monday's start against the Giants.

Hendricks had blanked the Giants through five until they hung a five-spot in the sixth inning. After leading off the frame with a strikeout, Hendricks allowed a solo home run to Joe Panik followed by a single, a walk, another single, and a double before departing. All told, he gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out five. Last season, Hendricks succeeded despite a mediocre ability to miss bats, finishing with a 2.46 ERA and a 47/15 K/BB ratio in 80 1/3 innings.
Mar 30 - 7:14 PM

Kyle Hendricks was magnificent on Saturday against the Athletics, tossing five no-hit innings.

Hendricks faced the minimum, striking out three in the effort. He had tossed two shutout innings against the Padres on Monday as well, so he's off to a good start. Hendricks finished with a terrific 2.46 ERA in 13 starts last season for the Cubs and looks poised to repeat the performance over a full season in Chicago.
Mar 14 - 6:00 PM

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.
