Kyle Hendricks won his 16th game of the season Monday, spinning six shutout frames against the Pirates.
Hendricks struck out five, didn't walk anyone and allowed seven hits on the night, lowering his league-best ERA to 1.99. The right-hander somehow has eight losses despite that 1.99 ERA, although just two of them have come since mid-June. He'll get one final tune-up start this weekend in Cincinnati and will hope to keep that ERA below 2.00. Sep 26 - 11:09 PM

Kyle Hendricks will be pushed back from a scheduled Saturday outing against the Cardinals to start against the Pirates on Monday

Just a little minor housekeeping for the Cubs, who are readying for a much-hyped playoff run. Hendricks was initially scheduled to start in this weekend's series versus the visiting Redbirds. Instead, it will be Jason Hammel on Saturday, with Hendricks moving to Monday.
Sep 21 - 10:05 PM

Kyle Hendricks yielded two earned runs over six innings Sunday in a loss to the Brewers.

Hendricks struck out nine and didn't issue a walk, but the Brewers were able to tag him for six hits, including a pair of RBI singles in the top of the second inning. It was a rare home defeat for Hendricks, who still boasts a stellar 2.06 ERA for the season. Next up is a matchup against the Cardinals, a team Hendricks nearly no-hit on Monday.
Sep 18 - 5:06 PM

Kyle Hendricks had a no-hitter broken up by Jeremy Hazelbaker to lead off the ninth inning in Monday's 4-1 victory over the Cardinals.

The Cards managed just a couple walks and very few hard-hit balls through eight frames against Hendricks before Hazelbaker launched a no-doubter to lead off the bottom of the ninth. Hendricks had to sit through a lengthy top of the frame, which ended when he flew out, and it's possible that might have thrown the righty's rhythm off. Nonetheless, it was yet another brilliant effort from the right-hander, as Hendricks struck out six while needing a mere 96 pitches in his eight-plus innings. He'll carry a league-best 2.03 ERA into this weekend's matchup versus the Brewers at Wrigley Field.
Sep 12 - 11:07 PM

Kyle Hendricks yielded one run over six innings in Monday’s 7-2 victory over the Brewers.

The lone run scored on a solo homer from Chris Carter in the second inning. The Brewers had the opportunity for more, but Hendricks was able to get some big outs and stick around long enough for the Cubs to go in front and give him his 14th win. He struck out six and walked a pair in the win and lower his MLB-best ERA to 2.07 for the year. He’ll face the Astros on the road this weekend.
Sep 5 - 4:19 PM

Kyle Hendricks tossed seven scoreless innings Tuesday as the Cubs shut out the Pirates 3-0.

Hendricks scattered three hits and a walk while striking out four, earning his 13th win of the season in the process. He also increased his lead in earned run average, with his 2.09 ERA best among all qualified pitchers. That's quite a feather in the cap of the 26-year-old, who was arguably the least-coveted Cubs starter, for fantasy purposes, coming into the season. Hendricks has certainly shaken that reputation, and he'll look to further his league lead when the Cubs face the Giants on Sunday.
Aug 30 - 11:12 PM

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.
Aug 13 - 5:46 PM

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.
