    • Hendricks (9-6) threw 6.1 innings shutout innings Wednesday, striking out seven and earning the win against the Mets. Hendricks continues his phenomenal 2016 campaign with his shutdown performance at home against the reigning NL champions. The 26-year-old Dartmouth graduate has dominated hitters despite his lack of velocity (his fastball averages less than 90 mph), and has managed to strike out 96 hitters over 18 starts. Hendricks 9-6 record is actually worse than one might think given his 2.27 ERA and the Cubs dominant offense that's leading the NL in runs. Hendricks is slated to face the rival White Sox in his next start.

    • Hendricks (8-6) fired six innings of three-hit, scoreless ball in Friday's 6-0 victory over the Rangers. He surrendered two walks and struck out three. The 26-year-old righty hasn't given up an earned run over the last three appearances, one of which was a two-inning spot relief stint on July 7. Hendricks has actually only given up three earned runs over his last 31 innings, and has lowered his ERA from 3.05 to 2.41 during that span. He'll look to build on his current three-start winning streak when he takes on the Mets next Wednesday.

    • Hendricks improved to 7-6 by pitching 5.1 innings against the Reds on Monday. He gave up just four hits and one run (zero earned), but only struck out two. Most fantasy owners will take it - improvements to WHIP, ERA, and wins are always nice, but Hendricks threw 100 pitches and couldn't get out of the sixth inning before he was pulled with an 8-0 lead. He'll likely make one more start before the All-Star break, this weekend in Pittsburgh.

    • Hendricks (6-6) dealt 6.2 innings, allowing two runs, eight hits and two walks while striking out five in Wednesday's win over the Reds. Although it wasn't his best performance, Anthony Rizzo's three-run homer in the top of the first allowed Hendricks to settle in early and cruise to his sixth victory. The righty threw 80 of his season-high 117 pitches for strikes while tying his season high for hits allowed. Hendricks' 1.05 WHIP through 15 starts is good for 10th-best in the NL.

    • Hendricks didn't factor into the decision against the Marlins on Friday, despite giving up only a hit and striking out five over five innings. He did surrender four runs (none earned) and four walks. It was an interesting stat line for Hendricks, who gave up a grand slam to Justin Bour that nevertheless left his earned run ledger unscathed due to an error by Addison Russell. Hendricks was mostly effective otherwise, managing first-pitch strikes on 14 of the 22 hitters he faced. His control was an issue however, and was the biggest culprit in the 26-year-old throwing 105 pitches in just five frames. The right-hander has put together a strong month overall that's included a 2.45 ERA, and will look to close it out with a victory against the Reds next Wednesday.
