Collapse in sixth costs Cubs RHP Kyle Hendricks win


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Hendricks allowed just one run - a solo homer by Pedro Alvarez - and three hits through five while his team was building a six-run lead. But he collapsed in the sixth after two outs, giving up two singles and three-run double. He finished having allowed five runs on eight hits with one walk and seven strikeouts.

With just one quality start under his belt this season and a 5.15 ERA, Hendricks will try again Thursday in San Diego.

Kyle Hendricks gets no decision in Cubs' loss


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Cubs' Kyle Hendricks allows two runs in loss vs. Pirates


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2015) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks took a loss Wednesday, allowing two earned runs on five hits and three walks in five innings while striking out six in his team's 8-1 defeat against the Pirates.

"I threw pretty well overall, to be honest with you. I had my sinker back, which is the No. 1 key I was working on this week, so I was happy with that," Hendricks said after the game, per MLB.com. "They just had a good approach tonight at the plate, honestly. Laid off some good pitches. That fifth inning just too many pitches, too many deep counts."

Hendricks (0-1) entered the game having issued just one walk in three starts but showed a little wildness Wednesday, and one of the runs he surrendered came on a bases-loaded free pass to Starling Marte. The Pirates were able to tack on four runs in the sixth inning, strengthening the chances that the starter would earn his first loss of the season.

Maddon can see Hendricks making progress despite Wednesday's poor results.

"We've talked about the peripherals. He's really not pitched all that badly," Maddon said. "I guess a lot of inherited runners have scored against him, and that really makes your numbers look worse. His WHIP is actually really good. I think he's throwing the ball well. I think it's a matter of time until it comes together in regard to results, but process-wise, we're really happy with him. He's been fine."

Hendricks owns a 5.23 ERA and 19:4 K:BB ratio in 20 2/3 innings. He's on track to face Cardinals in St. Louis Tuesday.

Cubs starter Hendricks blows lead in Thursday defeat


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/23/2015) Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks has now sandwiched two bad outings around one good one after blowing a lead Thursday in Pittsburgh.

His team put him ahead 2-0 and 4-1. He was cruising along until a three-run sixth in which he gave up two doubles before his removal. He finished having surrendered three runs in 5 1/3 innings with no walks and two strikeouts. His lone blemish before the fifth came courtesy of a Sean Rodriguez home run.

Hendricks, whose ERA rose to 5.76 and has yet to register a decision in three starts, will attempt to snag his first win in another matchup against Pirates left-hander Jeff Locke next Tuesday.


Bullpen blows win Saturday for Cubs RHP Hendricks


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(4/18/2015) In his first start of the season, Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks simply pitched lousy. In his second start on Saturday, he simply got screwed.

He appeared destined to win after pitching six strong innings and watching his team take a 6-2 lead into the ninth, but the bullpen blew it and the Cubs required extra innings to pull out the win.

Hendricks lowered his ERA from 10.38 to 6.10 by shutting out San Diego after a Matt Kemp two-run homer in the first. He walked none, fanned eight and retired 14 consecutive batters.

He will again seek his first victory Thursday afternoon in Pittsburgh.

At the end of the day, it doesn't matter how you feel, you have to make pitches, and I didn't make pitches. First one's out of the way."

Pitch location a key to Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks' success


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/24/2015) Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks burst onto the scene as a rookie in 2014, going 7-2 with a 2.46 ERA and 1.08 WHIP in 13 starts. A lot of folks are interested to see where Hendricks goes from there in his second MLB season.

While Hendricks was never considered an elite prospect in the minors, despite some pretty good numbers (2.69 ERA, 1.07 WHIP), the Cubs are confident the 25-year-old right-hander can continue to have success at the major-league level.

“He’s shown the ability to make the big pitch,” Cubs president Theo Epstein said, per ESPN. “He has some tools now. He has a really good sinker. His sinker moves straight down. And it’s late. Who cares if its 89 or 88, it gets a ground ball?

“He can make balls look like strikes and strikes look like balls. It opens up a lot. He has a lot of different ways to shape a big pitch in a big spot.”

Joe Maddon is in his first spring with the Cubs, and it hasn't taken Hendricks long to make a strong impression.

“People will not project him highly because he’s not lighting up the gun but he lights up the location,” Maddon said. “Ask a hitter what they think. A hitter is going to tell you by the way he reacts to his pitches. He’s good. He’s real good. He just gets hitters out. They go back to the dugout, they’re all very upset. They’re breaking bats, wondering how did he beat me like that? And that happens 16, 17 times a year when he wins games.”

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

Cubs' Kyle Hendricks targeting 200 innings in 2015


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/3/2015) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks, who was awarded the No. 4 spot in the starting rotation, told MLB.com that he's targeting 200 innings in 2015.

"That's one of the biggest goals I have for myself is consistency, No. 1, but then eating up innings," Hendricks said. "That's something I pride myself on is staying in ballgames and giving my team a chance to win. I think with the number I threw last year, 200 shouldn't be out of the question for me."

Hendricks put together a solid rookie campaign in 2014, registering a 2.46 ERA and 47:15 K:BB ratio over 80 1/3 innings with the Cubs. Overall, he totaled 183 innings between his time at Triple-A and the majors.

by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
