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.

Kyle Hendricks allowed three runs, including a two-run homer, over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals Tuesday.

Hendricks was rolling along until the sixth inning, when the Cardinals pushed a run across before Matt Holliday hit a line drive two-run homer to tie the score. It also marked the end of the night for Hendricks, who finished with five hits and a walk allowed. If Tuesday was Hendricks' final turn in 2014, he'll finish 7-2 with a 2.46 ERA and an inside track at a starting rotation spot in 2015.
Wed, Sep 24, 2014 12:12:00 AM

Kyle Hendricks limited the Reds to one run in seven innings Wednesday to improve to 7-2 on the season.

The Reds replaced their entire starting lineup after getting one-hit by Jake Arrieta on Tuesday, and the group that Hendricks beat tonight was quite comparable to most of the lineups he faced in the PCL before getting promoted this summer. Hendricks allowed seven hits, but all except for one was a single and he didn't walk anyone. It was also his fifth straight start without allowing a homer, which is the biggest reason he has a 2.28 ERA at the moment.
Wed, Sep 17, 2014 10:51:00 PM

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.
Wed, Sep 10, 2014 10:48:00 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.
