Kyle Hendricks held the Mets to two runs but lasted just four innings in Tuesday's loss.
Hendricks didn't pitch poorly, yielding five hits with one walk and four strikeouts, but Cubs manager Joe Maddon elected to pinch-hit for him in the bottom of the fourth in hopes of getting some offense going. It's his second straight postseason outing where he failed to go five frames, although he has an 11/1 K/BB ratio over 8 2/3 innings. The Cubs will go with Jason Hammel in Game 4 as they attempt to stave off elimination, but expect Maddon to again turn to the bullpen early if he needs to. Oct 20 - 11:31 PM

Kyle Hendricks will be available out of the bullpen in Game 4 of the NLDS against the Cardinals on Tuesday.

The Cubs are hoping for a great outing from Jason Hammel as they attempt to clinch, but Hendricks will be available just in case. The 25-year-old allowed three runs over 4 2/3 innings Saturday in Game 2 of the NLDS on Saturday.

Kyle Hendricks scattered three runs and four hits with seven strikeouts over 4 2/3 innings Saturday in the Cubs’ win over the Cardinals in Game 2 of the NLDS.

Hendricks’ first postseason start wasn’t anything to write home about, though he was better than his counterpart Jaime Garcia. All three of the runs came on solo homers including back-to-back blasts from Kolten Wong and Randal Grichuk in the fifth inning. A whopping 48 of his 66 pitches went for strikes. It’s unlikely we’ll see him again this series.

Kyle Hendricks was superb in Saturday's 1-0 win over the Brewers, tossing six innings of one-hit, shutout ball.

Hendricks struck out eight without walking a batter. The only Brewer to manage a hit with the 25-year-old right-hander on the mound was Martin Maldonado, and even that was just a measly single. Otherwise, nothing doing for the Brew Crew. Working behind Jon Lester and Jake Arrieta in the Cub rotation, Hendricks finishes out the regular season with a 3.95 ERA, 1.16 WHIP and 167/43 K/BB ratio across 180 innings.

The 25-year-old has a 4.23 ERA with a 1.21 WHIP and a 150/41 K/BB ratio over 168 innings. Hendricks will take the hill next week in Cincinnati to oppose the Reds.

Kyle Hendricks posted a tough start in Thursday afternoon's win over the Pirates, allowing four runs on six hits over three innings.

Hendricks struck out five without walking a batter, but when the Pirates weren't swinging and missing, they tended to hit the ball for distance. Travis Snider worked him for a solo home run in the bottom of the second. An inning later, Gregory Polanco swatted a solo shot to dead center. A few batters later, it was Pedro Alvarez's turn, his of the two-run variety. Hendricks entered the game having surrendered just 14 gopher balls over 159 innings. The 25-year-old right-hander will bring a 4.22 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 142/41 K/BB ratio into his next start, a home showdown with the Brewers.

He has done a nice job at the back end of the Cubs rotation this season, compiling a 4.08 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 137/41 K/BB ratio across 159 innings.

Otherwise, nothin' doing for the Snakes. The owner of a 4.08 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 132/38 K/BB ratio over 152 1/3 innings, Hendricks will have a cushy road outing against the Phillies waiting for him next time he toes the rubber.

Overall, he gave up five hits, walked three, and struck out four. The right-hander carries a 4.15 ERA with a 1.24 WHIP and a 128/37 K/BB ratio over 147 1/3 innings.

A home showdown with the Reds shows next on his schedule.

He'll look to get back in the win column on Thursday when he does battle against the Giants in San Francisco.
