  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Cruises to win Thursday

    Hendricks (4-6) earned the win over Cincinnati on Thursday, pitching six innings and allowing two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out seven.

    The Cubs built an early lead that ballooned to seven runs through three innings, so Hendricks faced little stress in earning his fourth victory. Still, the veteran was more deceptive than usual, notching 15 swinging strikes and a tying a season high with seven punchouts. Hendricks has had his share of poor performances this season, but he's registered consecutive quality starts during which he's allowed just two runs while striking out 13 across 13.2 innings.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Dominant in Friday's win

    Hendricks (3-6) allowed just five hits and a walk with six strikeouts over 7.1 scoreless innings to earn the win Friday over the Cardinals.

    This was the third time this year Hendricks has completed at least seven innings without allowing a run. He was able to make Nico Hoerner's two-run home run in the second inning stand as all the Cubs needed in the victory. Hendricks still has a lackluster 4.90 ERA, 1.30 WHIP and 55:21 K:BB through 75.1 innings in 14 starts. The 32-year-old hasn't been able to sustain success over more than a couple of outings at a time, but he's in line for a decent home matchup next week versus the Reds.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Roughed up in loss

    Hendricks (2-6) took the loss Sunday against Atlanta, allowing six runs on eight hits while striking out six and walking one over 4.1 innings.

    Hendricks had a rough game Sunday despite striking out six batters and limiting the Braves to one walk. He was tagged for a three-run home run in the first inning, then a solo shot and two RBI doubles in the fifth before being pulled. The veteran righty gave up six earned runs for the third time this season and has allowed three or more earned runs in seven of 13 games this season. Hendricks will take a 5.43 ERA into his next appearance.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Strikes out six in no-decision

    Hendricks gave up one earned run on four hits and no walks while striking out six over five innings in a 12-5 loss to the Padres on Tuesday. He did not factor into the decision.

    Hendricks found some success against the Padres on extra rest Tuesday, holding them to only one earned run and issuing no free passes. However, Hendricks threw a mere 78 pitches and has pitched six-plus innings on only two occasions this season. His 4.95 ERA is the highest of his nine-year career, and after a rough 2021 campaign, the once-reliable 32-year-old appears to be on a downward trajectory while battling shoulder fatigue. Look for him to start Sunday versus Atlanta.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Returning Tuesday

    Hendricks has been resting due to shoulder fatigue but is lined up to make his next start Tuesday against the Padres, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Hendricks will be pitching on 12 days' rest when he returns to action. It seems as though he wasn't dealing with any explicit injury beyond fatigue and that the Cubs merely wanted to give him some extra rest, but any time an arm issue pops up for a pitcher, it's hard not to be at least somewhat worried.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Throws bullpen Friday

    Manager David Ross said that Hendricks has been "dealing with some stuff" but threw a bullpen session Friday, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Hendricks hasn't started since June 1, and the team hasn't provided an official reason why he was deemed in need of extra rest. However, Ross didn't sound too concerned about Hendricks and said that the right-hander will "pitch in the near future." While the 32-year-old isn't starting Friday or Saturday against the Yankees, he'll likely be in the mix to start during Sunday's series finale or sometime next week against the Padres.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Next start uncertain

    Hendricks isn't listed among the Cubs' probable starters for Friday's or Saturday's games against the Yankees, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    The Cubs have already given Hendricks some extra rest coming off his last start June 1, and it's unclear if he'll being taking the ball this weekend in New York. Chicago has yet to list a starter for Sunday, but Marcus Stroman will also be in the mix to pitch given his outing Wednesday was postponed due to inclement weather. One or both of Hendricks and Stroman will have to wait until next week before retaking the mound.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Getting extra rest

    Hendricks is getting some extra rest between starts, as he is not scheduled to pitch in the two-game series in Baltimore early next week, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    He would have lined up to make one of those starts, as he last pitched Wednesday, but it now seems like his next start will come next weekend against the Yankees. Hendricks has given up 14 earned runs with five strikeouts in 14 innings over his last three starts.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Allows three runs Wednesday

    Hendricks pitched five innings against Milwaukee on Wednesday, allowing three runs on six hits and one walk while striking out one. He didn't factor in the decision.

    Hendricks missed very few bats in the outing, notching only two swinging strikes among 79 pitches and fanning only one batter. However, he was able to keep Chicago in the contest and avoided taking his third straight loss. Hendricks had allowed 11 runs over nine innings in his previous two starts coming into the contest, so this was a better (though not particularly impressive) outing. The veteran right-hander is expected to make his next start in Baltimore next week.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Struggles again in loss

    Hendricks (2-5) allowed four runs on five hits across four innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Reds. He walked one and struck out one.

    Hendricks didn't allow seven runs like he did in his last outing, but he was only moderately better Wednesday. It's been a struggle all year for the righty, as he's now sitting with a 5.20 ERA. Hendricks posted a sub-3.50 ERA every year between 2016 and 2020, but that crept up to 4.77 last season, and he's now on pace for a new career worst. Hendricks has always had a small margin for error since he doesn't record too many strikeouts, and that may be catching up to him in his age-32 season. He'll look to turn things around in his next scheduled start Tuesday against the Brewers.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Gives up seven runs Friday

    Hendricks (2-4) allowed seven runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out three in five innings to take the loss Sunday against the Diamondbacks.

    Hendricks gave up just one run in 14.1 innings over his last two starts, but he had one of his worst outings of the season Friday. Josh Rojas and David Peralta each hit two home runs off him as the right-hander gave up a season-high seven runs. Hendricks has been quite inconsistent early in the season, as he's held the opposition to two or fewer runs in five of his nine starts while giving up at least six runs in three of his outings. He'll attempt to get back on track when he tentatively lines up to face the Reds on the road Wednesday.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Solid in no-decision

    Hendricks didn't factor into the decision during Saturday's 4-2 victory over Arizona, allowing one run on five hits and two walks with two strikeouts in 5.2 innings.

    Hendricks limited the Diamondbacks to a single run in the second inning and was never in any real danger despite putting runners on base each frame. The 32-year-old has now surrendered two runs or fewer in five his eight starts, though the total of 16 in his other three starts is a bit concerning. It all amounts to a decent 4.03 ERA and 1.25 WHIP, and Hendricks is currently slated to face off against Arizona again next week.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Nearly twirls shutout Monday

    Hendricks (2-3) picked up the win Monday, scattering three hits and a walk over 8.2 scoreless innings in a 6-0 victory over the Padres. He struck out seven.

    The veteran right-hander was given a chance to complete his first shutout since 2020, but after Hendricks issued his first free pass of the game to Jake Cronenworth in the bottom of the ninth, he got the hook after 116 pitches (80 strikes). Hendricks at least recorded his second quality start of the season, but in his other five outings, he has a rough 7.33 ERA.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Suffers third loss

    Hendricks (1-3) allowed four runs on seven hits and one walk over 5.2 innings Wednesday to take the loss against the White Sox. He struck out two.

    Hendricks' outing got off to a rough start when Jose Abreu drilled a solo homer off him in the first inning, and he later gave up a single run in each of the third, fourth and sixth frames. This was an improvement over his previous appearance, when he gave up six runs over 4.1 frames versus Milwaukee, but it continued the inconsistency the veteran hurler has shown so far this season. Hendricks has given up four or more runs in three of his six starts while holding the opponent to two or fewer runs in the other three outings. He'll carry a disappointing 5.64 ERA into his next appearance, which is slated to come in San Diego early next week.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Mauled by Milwaukee

    Hendricks (1-2) took the loss Friday, surrendering six runs on seven hits -- including three home runs -- and two walks over 4.1 innings as the Cubs got routed 11-1 by the Brewers. He struck out two.

    Six of the seven hits off the veteran right-hander went for extra bases, but he was far from the only offender on the Cubs and the Brewers slugged six homers in all on the night. Hendricks had served up only one long ball in his first four starts of the season, but Friday he looked more like the hurler who got taken deep 31 times in 181 innings in 2021. Hendricks will carry a 5.47 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and uncharacteristic 10.0 percent walk rate into his next outing.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Allows two hits in blowout win

    Hendricks (1-1) earned the win Saturday, allowing two hits over seven scoreless innings against the Pirates. He struck out two and did not issue a walk.

    The Chicago offense exploded for 21 runs while Hendricks, Sean Newcomb and Scott Effross combined to shut out Pittsburgh. With that, Hendricks picked up his first win of the 2022 campaign. He's had two duds sandwiched between two strong outings to begin the year. Hendricks has allowed just one homer through 20.1 innings after turning in the worst home-run rate of his career last season.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Strikes out six in short outing

    Hendricks allowed two runs on five hits and two walks over 4.1 innings in Monday's win over the Rays. He struck out six and did not factor in the decision.

    Hendricks coughed up an RBI single to Ji-Man Choi in the fourth inning and was knocked out of the game after Josh Lowe's RBI single in the fifth. The veteran righty now owns a 6.08 ERA through 13.1 frames this season. Hendricks carried a career 7.4 K/9 and 2.0 BB/9 into Monday's outing, so his current 17:9 K:BB is fairly uncharacteristic, even in a small sample size. Still looking for his first win, he's expected to face the Pirates at home this weekend.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Struggles against Pirates

    Hendricks (0-1) tossed 3.2 innings, surrendering six runs on seven hits and four walks while striking out four on his way to a loss versus the Pirates on Wednesday.

    The 32-year-old struggled with his command in this one, throwing only 42 of his 78 pitches for strikes. After Willson Contreras gave him a one-run lead with a solo shot in the top of the first inning, Ben Gamel flipped the script in the bottom of the frame, blasting a two-out three-run homer off Hendricks. He later surrendered three more runs and wasn't able to make it through the fourth inning. The right-hander got off to a slow start in 2021, posting a 6.23 ERA through his first seven starts before going on a hot streak in the middle of the season. Hendricks will have a chance to right the ship in his next projected start at home versus the Rays on Monday.
