Kyle Hendricks picks up a quality start Friday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/29/2014) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks turned in a quality start Friday against the Cardinals.

Hendricks allowed two runs on five hits over six innings. He struck out three and walked one during the outing. Hendricks allowed both his runs early, but managed to settle in. In the first inning, Hendricks led things off with a single, walk and run-scoring single to the first three hitters he faced. Another run came in to score on a single later in the inning. Hendricks managed to get it together over the rest of the start. He threw five scoreless innings before leaving the game. Hendricks threw 89 pitches during the start. 

The Cubs battled back, giving Hendricks a no-decision. He’ll take on the Brewers in his next start. 


Kyle Hendricks has start shortened by rain Saturday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/23/2014) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks had his start shortened by rain Saturday against the Orioles.

Hendricks allowed two runs on five hits over two innings. He struck out two and did not issue any walks. Hendricks was tagged for runs in both innings. In the first, he gave up two consecutive doubles, plating the first run. With two men on in the second, Hendricks gave up a run-scoring single. He was able to get through the rest of the inning without giving up any more runs. The game was delayed prior to the start of the third inning. Hendricks did not return.

Hendricks was in line for the win, but did not go five innings. He’ll take on the Cardinals in his next start. 


Kyle Hendricks posts fifth win, sixth straight quality start


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(8/18/2014) Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks held the Mets to one run in seven innings during a 4-1 win Monday. He allowed three hits and two walks, while striking out three on his way to a fourth straight victory.

Hendricks (5-1) allowed a pair of singles in the first three innings before Lucas Duda launched a solo home run with one out in the fourth inning. It was just the third home run in seven starts the rookie has allowed.

Despite falling behind, Hendricks bounced back and was still in line for the decision when Anthony Rizzo gave Chicago a 2-1 lead in the eighth inning. He's won five of seven starts since his promotion from the minors. Hendricks is also the first Cubs' rookie with six consecutive quality starts since Kerry Wood, who had two streaks of seven quality starts in 1998, according to The Chicago Tribune.

Hendricks is expected to make his next start Saturday against the Orioles. He is 2-1 with a 0.44 ERA in his first three starts at Wrigley Field.


Cubs push back pitchers a day


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/14/2014) The Cubs will call up Dan Straily for Saturday's start, pushing back their pitchers a day. 

That means Jake Arrieta will move to Sunday, and Kyle Hendricks will throw Monday. It's just a spot start for Straily, so the team's rotation should return to normal following Saturday's game. 


Time to give Kyle Hendricks credit


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(8/13/2014) As long as we can agree that he won't maintain a 1.73 ERA and that, because he's not a strikeout pitcher, there are limits to his upside, I'm comfortable endorsing Kyle Hendricks in Fantasy. 

I've been slow to come around, but six starts are enough to convince me he excels in at least two of three measurements that determine a pitcher's FIP, an estimate of what ERA should be with luck removed from the equation: He doesn't walk anybody, and he keeps the ball in the park with his ground-ball tendencies.

He also pitches much deeper into games than you'd expect for a rookie, going at least seven innings in four of his six starts. That's a big deal in Head-to-Head points leagues especially and helps explain his 4-1 record despite pitching for a bad team.

So what is his upside exactly? Well, Doug Fister has become the standard for pitch-to-contact pitchers, but let's not assume a best-case scenario after only six starts. I'm thinking something along the lines of Mike Leake, which isn't the cleanest comparison since Leake allows a fair number of home runs, but I think their other ratios will be similar in the long run.

So if Leake is worth owning in your league, chances are so is Hendricks.


Kyle Hendricks tosses scoreless outing Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(8/12/2014) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks turned in a strong performance Tuesday against the Brewers.

Hendricks tossed 7 1/3 scoreless innings. He struck out five and walked one during the outing. Hendricks allowed six hits. Hendricks did a good job keeping the ball on the ground, posting nine ground ball outs. He ran into some trouble in his final inning, loading the bases before he was pulled from the game. Pedro Strop was able to induce an inning-ending double-play, keeping Hendricks from giving up any runs.

With the win, Hendricks improved to 4-1 on the year. He'll take on the Mets in his next start. 


Kyle Hendricks goes eight innings strong in win over Rockies


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/7/2014) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks went eight innings strong for the win Thursday afternoon against the Rockies at Coors Field. The right-hander yielded two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out four in a 6-2

Over his last four starts covering 28 1/3 innings, Hendricks has allowed only four earned runs. He owns a 2.10 ERA and a 1.02 WHIP over 34 1/3 innings of work. His next start will come Tuesday at home against Milwaukee.

Kyle Hendricks finds winning path vs. Dodgers


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(8/2/2014) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks remained dominant with a quality start on Friday against the Dodgers, improving to 2-1 on the year. The right-hander yielded two runs -- one earned -- on four hits and one walk while striking out three over seven innings of an 8-2 victory.

Hendricks has allowed one earned run or fewer in each of his last three starts. He owns a 2.05 ERA and a 1.06 WHIP over four starts (26 1/3 innings). His next start will come Thursday against Colorado at Coors Field.

Kyle Hendricks takes a hard-luck loss


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/27/2014) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks picked up a hard-luck loss Sunday against the Cardinals. 

Hendricks allowed one run on seven hits over 6 1/3 innings. He struck out two and did not issue any walks. It was a strong start for Hendricks, but he had the misfortune of going up against Cardinals ace Adam Wainwright. Wainwright gave St. Louis seven scoreless innings, meaning Hendricks was tagged with the loss. 

Hendricks dropped to 1-1 with the loss. He'll take on the Dodgers in his next start. 


Kyle Hendricks dominates the Padres Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Kyle Hendricks set to start Tuesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/18/2014) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks will get the nod Tuesday, according to MLB.com.

The Cubs have been mum on the rotation following the All-Star break. While Hendricks was announced as Tuesday's starter, the club still hasn't announced the fifth starter. Hendricks has a 6.00 ERA over one start in the majors. 


Kyle Hendricks sent back to Triple-A


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks was sent down to Triple-A following Thursday's start.

Hendricks allowed four runs over six innings of work. The move signals that the team is willing to give infielder Arismendy Alcantara more time in the majors. It's unclear whether Hendricks will be up again shortly after the All-Star break. 


Kyle Hendricks struggles in debut


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(7/10/2014) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks struggled in his 2014 debut against the Reds. 

Hendricks allowed four runs on five hits over six innings of work. He issued three walks while striking out seven. Hendricks ran into most of his trouble during the first inning. He walked the first two batters he faced. After getting one out, Hendricks allowed three consecutive hits, scoring three runs. He faced all nine of the Reds hitters during that first inning. 

At that point, Hendricks seemed to settle in. Other than a third inning home run from Ryan Ludwick, he kept the Reds bats quiet over the next five innings. Hendricks did not receive a decision for the start. It's unclear whether he'll stay in the rotation moving forward, so his next start is in limbo. 


Kyle Hendricks gets the call for debut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

Report: Kyle Hendricks up with Cubs to join rotation


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(7/7/2014) The Cubs have promoted right-hander Kyle Hendricks with the purpose of placing him in their rotation. They acquired him in the Ryan Dempster deal with Texas in 2012.

Hendricks has been solid at Triple-A Iowa this season with a 10-5 mark and 3.59 ERA. He has given up 98 hits in 102 2/3 innings with just 23 walks and 97 strikeouts.


Who is worth targeting among the Cubs' rotation hopefuls?


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(7/5/2014) Clearly, the headliners from Saturday's trade between the Cubs and Athletics were Jeff Samardzija and Jason Hammel, and both immediately become must-owns in AL-only leagues. Their departure leaves the Cubs with two big holes to fill in their rotation, and there is no shortage of candidates to fill them.

Carlos Villanueva has replaced Samardzija for his Saturday start at the Nationals, but he is not necessarily among the candidates to fill a spot long-term. Even if he were, Villanueva has not had a sterling track record as a starter (career 4.94 ERA), so he can be passed over in virtually all Fantasy formats.

Then there is Dan Straily, who was acquired from the A's as part of the return for Samardzija and Hammel. He will report to Triple-A Iowa, but according to CSNChicago.com, he could be up with the big club soon. Because of his strikeout potential, Straily is worth stashing in NL-only leagues. He has a Jake Odorizzi-like skill set -- complete with shaky control and a high flyball rate -- but without a pitcher's park like Tropicana Field (or his former home of O.co Coliseum) to come home to, there may be little respite from home runs.

A better risk than Straily is Tsuyoshi Wada, who has already been announced as Tuesday's starter at the Reds. He has similar strikeout potential to Straily but with fewer control issues and slightly less pronounced flyball tendencies. He is worth pursuing in some deeper mixed leagues, as well as in NL-only formats.

Chris Rusin, just called up for bullpen duty, Dallas Beeler and Kyle Hendricks will also be in the mix, according to ESPN.com, but none has appeal outside of deeper NL-only leagues. With so much competition for two open spots, none of those three are really worth the trouble of expending FAAB dollars or a waiver priority.


Kyle Hendricks dealing with minor ankle injury


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(5/20/2014) Cubs pitching prospect Kyle Hendricks will not make his scheduled start at Triple-A Iowa Tuesday, due to an ankle injury. He is expected to make his next start, per the team.  

Hendricks is off to a great start for Iowa, posting a 3.06 ERA with 54 strikeouts in 50 innings. 


Kyle Hendricks making noise at Triple-A


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(5/16/2014) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks is performing well at Triple-A.

Hendricks struck out 11 hitters over eight innings in his most recent outing. He did not walk any batters. Through eight starts, Hendricks is actually second in the Pacific Coast League with 54 strikeouts in 50 innings. The 24-year-old has yet to make his major-league debut. 


Kyle Hendricks strikes out four in three scoreless innings Friday


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(3/14/2014) Cubs pitcher Kyle Hendricks surrendered just one hit and one walk in three scoreless innings while striking out four in his team's 5-4 win over the Dodgers Friday.

Hendricks entered play Friday having given up three earned runs and walking five batters in five innings, so Friday's outing was a big step forward for the right-hander. He should open the season with Triple-A Iowa.


Kyle Hendricks struggles with control in spring debut


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(3/4/2014)  Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks is unlikely to crack the rotation out of spring training, but he still gets to pitch with the big league club for now.

 He made his first spring start Tuesday against the Athletics, as he tossed two innings in a 6-4 win. He gave up one run on one hit, while walking three batters and striking out two.

Hendricks is expected to begin the season at Triple-A Iowa if he does not earn a rotation spot right away. He posted a 2.48 ERA in 40 innings there last season. 


Kyle Hendricks appears destined for Iowa


by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com
(2/15/2014) A glut of starting pitchers will likely prevent 24-year-old right-hander Kyle Hendricks from landing a spot in the Cubs rotation out of spring training, the Chicago Tribune has speculated.

Hendricks is well behind several veterans on the depth chart, including Jake Arrieta, Jason Hammel and James McDonald. But he did show his promise in 2013 at Double-A Tennessee and Triple-A Iowa with a 13-4 record and 2.00 ERA.

He will probably open the year at Iowa, for which he pitched just 40 innings last year.


Kyle Hendricks could crack Cubs' rotation


by Al Melchior | Data Analyst
(11/27/2013) The Chicago Tribune reports that Cubs pitching coach Chris Bosio will lobby for 23-year-old prospect Kyle Hendricks to get a shot at a rotation spot out of spring training next season. While Hendricks is expected to begin the year at Triple-A Iowa, Bosio suggested the young control artist could be ready for the majors, saying, "What's to say he couldn't be a fourth or fifth starter? That's what spring training is going to be for."

Hendricks went 13-4 with a 2.00 ERA and 1.06 WHIP for Double-A Tennessee and Triple-A Iowa in 2013.
