Kyle Hendricks took his second loss of the season after yielding four runs over 5 2/3 innings on Wednesday against the Blue Jays.
Hendricks allowed just one run through five, but tired in the sixth as the Jays pushed across three more runs. It marked the first time since July 10, his major league debut, that he allowed more than two runs in a start. Overall, Hendricks gave up six hits and a pair of walks while striking out five. The 24-year-old has been quite good so far. He'll take his 2.38 ERA and 39/14 K/BB ratio into Tuesday's start at home against the Reds. Sep 10 - 10:48 PM

Kyle Hendricks continued to pitch well, earning his sixth win after allowing two runs over 5 2/3 innings against the Brewers on Wednesday.

Hendricks has not allowed more than two runs in an outing since making his major league debut on July 10. The right-hander allowed nine hits, didn't issue a walk, and failed to record a strikeout. Nevertheless an impressive showing from the 24-year-old, who now has a 2.02 ERA, 1.06 WHIP, and 34/12 K/BB ratio over 10 starts. Hendricks will try to keep it going when he takes on the Blue Jays in Toronto on Tuesday.
Sep 3 - 11:23 PM

Kyle Hendricks delivered another strong start in a no-decision against the Cardinals on Friday, allowing just two runs on five hits over his six innings of work.

The young right-hander punched out three on the night while issuing only one free pass. The Cardinals scratched out a pair of runs against him in the first inning, but that would be the extent of the damage as he bore down and settled in nicely afterwards. He now boasts a terrific 1.91 ERA, 1.01 WHIP and 34/12 K/BB ratio through his first 56 2/3 innings with the Cubs. He’ll look to keep it rolling when he takes on the Brewers on Wednesday.

Kyle Hendricks gave up two runs in two innings Saturday in a no-decision versus the Orioles.

A long rain delay saved him from what could have been an even uglier start. Hendricks gave up two doubles and a run in the top of the first inning and then another run on two singles and a double in the top of the second. Hendricks still has a shiny 1.78 ERA and 1.01 WHIP, but the success should not be expected to last. He'll face the Cardinals in St. Louis next.
Aug 23 - 8:45 PM

Kyle Hendricks delivered seven innings of one-run ball Monday in the Cubs' 4-1 victory over the Mets.

Hendricks was yet again in full control, limiting the Mets to three hits and two walks over his seven impressive frames while fanning three. The only run he allowed was on a Lucas Duda solo shot in the bottom of the fourth. Hendricks is now 5-1 with a 1.66 ERA, 0.97 WHIP, and 29/11 K/BB ratio in 48 2/3 innings this season. The success feels a bit fluky, but he can no longer be ignored in mixed fantasy leagues. A tough test is next in the Orioles.
Aug 18 - 3:28 PM

Kyle Hendricks shut out the Brewers over 7 1/3 innings in the Cubs' 3-0 shutout victory on Tuesday.

Hendricks scattered six singles and a walk, striking out five in the stellar outing. He's now turned in five straight starts of at least 6 1/3 innings with two or fewer runs allowed. That gives him a 4-1 record and 1.73 ERA through six starts this year. Hendricks is quickly moving into mixed league consideration with his pitching, and he'll take on the Mets in New York on Sunday.
Aug 12 - 10:56 PM

Kyle Hendricks completed eight innings and held the Rockies to two runs in Thursday's win.

Hendricks doesn't miss a whole lot of bats, but in his last three starts, he's walked a total of two batters and given up just a lone solo home run. Overall, he's 3-1 with a 2.10 ERA, with the lone loss coming in a 1-0 game. His peripherals say he's been lucky so far, but if he keeps getting grounders and avoiding walks, he won't fall far.
Aug 7 - 6:39 PM

Kyle Hendricks allowed two runs -- one earned -- and four hits over seven innings in beating the Dodgers on Friday.

Hendricks only occasionally touches 90 mph on the gun, but he's been effective so far with his four-pitch mix, going 2-1 with a 2.05 ERA in four starts. We still wouldn't consider him mixed-league material.
Aug 2 - 1:41 AM

Kyle Hendricks took a tough-luck loss on Sunday, allowing one run over 6 1/3 innings against the Cardinals.

Hendricks served up a solo home run to Matt Holliday in the first inning, but he shut down the Cardinals over the rest of his time. The run is the only one he's given up over his last 13 1/3 innings, as he's got a 2.33 ERA and 1.19 WHIP through three starts this year. He's got another tough test on the agenda Friday when the Cubs visit the Dodgers.
Jul 27 - 6:47 PM

Kyle Hendricks limited the Padres to five hits over seven shutout innings in a win on Tuesday.

In just his second big league start, Hendricks shut down an impotent Padres offense for his first career victory. The right-hander walked three while striking out five. Hendricks pitched well enough to earn a longer look, and his next start will likely come this weekend against the Cardinals.
Jul 22 - 10:44 PM

Cubs recalled RHP Kyle Hendricks from Triple-A Iowa.

Hendricks will return to make the start Tuesday night against the Padres. The 24-year-old has a decent chance to stick in Chicago's rotation the rest of the way and is worth picking up in NL-only leagues.
Jul 22 - 3:13 PM

Cubs manager Rick Renteria announced Friday that Kyle Hendricks will start for the Cubs on Tuesday against the Padres.

Renteria has still yet to confirm who will open the second half of the season as the fifth starter in the rotation, though Tsuyoshi Wada remains the most likely candidate. Hendricks gave up four runs over six innings in a spot start before the All-Star break.
Jul 18 - 7:57 PM

Cubs optioned RHP Kyle Hendricks to Triple-A Iowa.

This means that the Cubs have decided to keep Arismendy Alcantara around for a little longer. Hendricks gave up four runs in six innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Reds and should get another shot in the Cubs' rotation after the All-Star break.
Jul 10 - 5:23 PM

Making his major league debut, Kyle Hendricks gave up four runs in six innings Thursday in a no-decision against the Reds.

Three of the runs came in the first. Hendricks walked the first two batters he faced, getting squeezed a couple of times, and went on to give up three hits in the frame. He settled down nicely afterwards, though he was doing so against one of the worst lineups any major league team will put on the field this year (Joey Votto, Jay Bruce, Brandon Phillips, Devin Mesoraco and Billy Hamilton were all absent for various reasons). Hendricks ended up striking out seven, and he gave up just one walk after the first. He's not going to be a world beater with his below average fastball, but he should be able to hold his own and contribute in NL-only leagues.
Jul 10 - 5:09 PM

Cubs purchased the contract of RHP Kyle Hendricks from Triple-A Iowa.

Hendricks will make his major league debut on Thursday against the Reds. The 24-year-old right-hander has posted a decent 3.59 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 97/23 K/BB ratio in 102 2/3 innings this season at the Triple-A level and may be worth a try in NL-only fantasy leagues.
