Liam Hendriks shelled in spot start, sent back down


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/21/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Liam Hendriks' return to the rotation did not go as well as hoped Friday, though the offense bailed him out in a 14-9 win.

Hendriks couldn't even make it out of the second inning in his first start in over three weeks, as the Reds jumped on him for six runs on six hits. He walked one batter and threw 29 of 47 pitches for strikes before being pulled from the game with one out left in the second inning.

Hendriks had been solid in two previous starts last month, but has now allowed nine runs in 13 1/3 innings on the season. His stay with the team was brief, as he was optioned to Triple-A Buffalo following the spot start. 


Liam Hendriks will make spot-start Friday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(6/19/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Liam Hendriks was recalled following Thursday's game against the Yankees and will make a spot-start Friday at Cincinnati, Sportsnet.ca reports. Hendriks will be sent down to the minors after Friday's start. The move was made to give knuckleballer R.A. Dickey -- left Saturday's game with groin soreness -- some extra rest. 

Liam Hendriks sent down Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Liam Hendriks was sent back to the minors Sunday.

Hendriks was available out of the bullpen for Sunday's game, leading some to assume he lost his rotation spot. That appears to be the case, as the team will send him back to Triple-A. Hendriks had a 2.31 ERA over 11 2/3 innings in the majors.


Liam Hendriks available out of the bullpen Sunday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(6/1/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Liam Hendriks is available out of the bullpen Sunday, according to Sportsnet.

The move does not signal that Hendriks has officially been moved out of the rotation, though it is convenient. Hendriks was one of the likely candidates to move to the pen after Marcus Stroman's strong start Saturday, and the fact that he's available in relief seems to hint toward a new role for Hendriks.


Liam Hendriks could be odd man out of Toronto rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(5/31/2014) The fine debut performance Saturday of Marcus Stroman for the Blue Jays puts the role of fellow starter Liam Hendriks in limbo.

Hendriks has performed well in two outings, giving up just three runs in 11 2/3 innings and winning his only decision. His next start is scheduled for sometime next week, but he has not been told when. The Jays currently have six starters and six relievers, which could result in Hendriks landing in the bullpen.

"We haven't had any discussions like that," Hendriks told MLB.com. "I'm just playing it by ear and telling them I can do whatever they want me to do."


Liam Hendriks settles for no-decision in quality start


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/28/2014) The Blue Jays got another quality outing out of pitcher Liam Hendriks Wednesday, in a 3-2 win over the Rays.

Hendriks pitched well over six innings of work, limiting the Rays to just two runs, both of which came on a second-inning home run. He settled down from that point, allowing just three hits and no walks, while striking out five and throwing 95 pitches in the game.

Despite the quality start, Hendriks had to settle for a no-decision, as the Blue Jays went ahead lead. He is 1-0 with a 2.31 ERA through two starts, and will try to keep his solid run going Tuesday against the Tigers. 


Liam Hendriks picks up first win of the season


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/23/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Liam Hendriks fell one out shy of a quality start, and managed to come away with his first win of the season on Friday against the Athletics.

Hendriks surrendered a solo home run to Brandon Moss in the fourth for his only blemish of the night. He yielded one run on three hits and three walks while striking out three in 5 2/3 innings of a 3-2 victory. He tossed 79 pitches, 51 for strikes.

Hendriks went 5-0 with a 1.48 at Triple-A this season. If he remains in the rotation, he'll make his next start Wednesday at home against Tampa Bay.

Blue Jays announce rotation plans for Friday, Saturday


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2014) The Blue Jays will make a small change to the rotation for this weekend, as the National Post reported Thursday.

R.A. Dickey has been pushed back from Friday to Saturday against the Athletics, which means the Blue Jays have to make a callup for Friday's series opener. According to the report, Liam Hendriks will get the call from Triple-A Buffalo to start Friday's game.

Hendriks has a 1.48 ERA at Triple-A this season, going 5-0 in seven starts. 


Liam Hendriks or Todd Redmond to start Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) The Blue Jays will start either Liam Hendriks or Todd Redmond Saturday, according to Sportsnet.

Marcus Stroman had been in consideration for the start, but he was sent down to Triple-A. Hendriks drew strong reviews from general manager Alex Anthopolous during his last start in the minors. Redmond has spent most of the year in the bullpen. The club will likely make the decision soon.


Blue Jays likely to pick Liam Hendriks for fifth spot


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2014) The Blue Jays don't need a fifth starting pitcher for another week, but they already seem to have an option in mind.

According to MLB.com, the team appears ready to tab Liam Hendriks to take the mound May 24 against the Athletics. General manager Alex Anthopolous went to Triple-A Buffalo to watch Hendriks pitch, and came away impressed.

"He's why I came. ... You want to see the 1.50 ERA for yourself," Anthopoulos told the Buffalo News. "He was good. Throws strikes, changes speeds. You know you don't have to have 60- or 80-pitch first appearance. He's fully stretched out."

Hendriks has been starting in the minors all season, while other potential candidates might not be ready to take on a full starting load. He has started 28 of his 30 appearances in the majors, posting a 6.06 ERA in 156 innings over three seasons with the Twins. 


Liam Hendriks sent to minor-league camp Wednesday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Blue Jays pitcher Liam Hendriks was sent to minor-league camp Wednesday.

Claimed by Toronto in February, Hendriks make two appearances this spring, allowing one hit and one walk while striking out three in three scoreless innings. He also recorded a save in each of his spring outings.


Liam Hendriks claimed by Blue Jays

Liam Hendriks removed from Orioles' 40-man roster


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Liam Hendriks starting to find comfort level


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(1/21/2014) Orioles pitcher Liam Hendriks has had an interesting offseason. During a 10-day stretch in December, Hendriks went from the Twins to the Cubs to the Orioles through a pair of waiver transactions.

Hendriks called the ordeal "a little strange," but he's eager to get his Baltimore career started and improve on what has been a rocky MLB tenure. Hendriks, who was once one of the Twins' top pitching prospects, is 2-13 with a 6.06 ERA and 1.59 WHIP in 30 career MLB appearances (28 starts).

"I think it’s just really feeling comfortable," Hendriks said, per The Baltimore Sun. "I went through a couple phases when I was up in the big leagues with the Twins, and I wasn’t quite feeling comfortable. My last two outings last year, I really started feeling comfortable. I started throwing harder, and I started being able to locate my pitches a little bit more, and I think it was more about lengthening my stride a little bit.

"That definitely helped, and I think it’s going to help my lower body as well. Just by lengthening it a bit, I felt like there wasn’t strain towards the end. So just coming into camp and lengthening my stride out, and try to make sure that everything is flowing and I start feeling comfortable on the mound. When I’m comfortable, I feel like I can pretty much put the ball where I want to."

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Liam Hendriks can't get out of first inning


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2013) Twins starting pitcher Liam Hendriks got the call Monday in Chicago. The young starter couldn't even get out of the first inning.

Hendriks took the loss to fall to 1-3 on the season as he allowed seven earned runs in the first inning over two-thirds of a frame. He needed 41 pitches to get that deep and allowed five hits and three free passes. The loss brought his ERA up to 6.87 on the season for the Twins.

Hendriks has made eight starts this season and this was by far his worst to date. He's given up seven runs twice now, but he did it over 4 1/3 at least the last time on Aug. 24 at Cleveland. Minnesota continues to roll with a six-man pitching rotation and Hendriks makes his next start Sunday at Oakland.

Liam Hendriks settles for no-decision


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2013) Twins starter Liam Hendriks got the start Tuesday at home against Oakland. Hendriks kept the Twins in the game long enough for them to come back and win it late.

The starter settled for a no-decision as he gave up three runs on seven hits and no walks over 5 1/3 innings. Hendriks threw 96 pitches on his outing and struck out six batters. He was hurt only by an Alberto Callaspo two-run homer in the fifth.

Hendriks actually lowered his ERA to 5.25 on the outing. The 24-year-old has shown promise over his seven starts this season, though he's been inconsistent. Hendriks is now part of a six-man rotation for the Twins. He is likely to make his next start Monday at Chicago.

by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(9/4/2013) Coming off his first win of the season his last time out, Twins starter Liam Hendriks didn't have quite as solid an outing Wednesday afternoon in Houston.

The Astros jumped on him for three runs in the first inning and he could never recover. Hendriks, however, avoided suffering the loss as Ryan Doumit hit a solo homer in the ninth to tie the score. His record remains 1-2 on the season.

Hendriks allowed five runs -- three earned -- on eight hits and two walks over just 4 1/3 innings. He threw 98 pitches and struck out three batters. Hendriks, who was making his sixth start of the year and fourth since coming back up in early August, has given up 10 earned runs over 8 2/3 innings in the two starts before and after his lone win on Aug. 30 at Texas.

The 24-year-old has been anything but consistent with a 5.28 ERA on the year. His next scheduled start comes Tuesday against Oakland.

"He's thrown up to 50-60 pitches already, so we're thinking about (Swarzak)," Gardenhire said. "The history of (Swarzak) as a starter hasn't been good, but he's been pitching real well and he may be one of the guys that fills in. Hendriks and Diamond are down there too."
