Hendricks (3-2) allowed two runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four over six innings in Wednesday's 7-5 win over the Reds.
After a bumpy beginning to the campaign, Hendricks has now delivered quality starts in four of his last five trips to the mound. Control remains an issue for him, however, as he's walked multiple batters in seven straight starts and his 3.6 BB/9 is a far cry from the 2.1 and 2.2 marks he posted the last two seasons. The 27-year-old will look for win No. 4 on Monday at home against the Giants.
Hendricks (2-2) went 6.1 innings in Colorado on Wednesday, allowing three runs (two earned) on four hits and two walks while striking out seven, but he was stuck with the loss anyway.
Hendricks had the poor fortune of being on the wrong end of an ultra-rare Coors Field shutout, but he still delivered another quality outing, continuing to put his early-April struggles in the past. The 27-year-old righty's ERA is down to 3.40, which is probably a closer approximation of his true level than that insane 2.13 mark from last year. Hendricks is a solid arm who's basically universally fantasy relevant, but he's not the kind of superstar his 2016 stats would imply.
Hendricks (2-1) allowed no runs on six hits and two walks while striking out five over 5.1 innings, but earned no decision Friday over the Yankees.
Hendricks stymied the Yankees bats, though he burned through 94 pitches, keeping him from getting through the sixth inning. After failing to notch a quality start in his first three outings of the year, he's rebounded by allowing just two runs over his last three starts to lower his ERA to 3.51, and although he may not post the amazing stats he did in 2016, he'll continue to be a solid fantasy option. He'll make his next start Wednesday against the Rockies.
Hendricks allowed two runs on three hits while walking three and striking out six over six innings for a no-decision in Sunday's 6-2 loss to Boston.
That's back-to-back quality starts for the 27-year-old right-hander, and he matched his season high with six K's in a game. It's also a good sign that he was able to hold the hot-hitting Red Sox lineup in check. Hendricks is sporting a mediocre 7.07 K/9 this year but is inducing 49.4 percent ground balls. He doesn't have overpowering stuff, but he limits free passes and keeps the ball out of the air. Hendricks won't be as sharp as he was in 2016, but his last two quality starts give hope to his owners that his ugly start to the year is behind him.
Hendricks will have his next scheduled start moved up from Monday against the Phillies to Sunday against the Red Sox, ESPN.com's Jesse Rogers reports.
Hendricks had labored through his first three starts of the season, but finally found success in his most recent turn Tuesday against the Pirates, tossing six scoreless innings while giving up four hits and two walks. With the Cubs off the schedule Thursday, manager Joe Maddon will reshuffle his rotation a bit by keeping Hendricks on his normal four-day rest for Sunday's turn, while Brett Anderson gets pushed back a day. Hendricks will thus benefit from a two-start week, though fantasy owners were probably hoping for a better matchup than one against a potent Red Sox offense at Fenway Park.
