Hendricks (10-4) pitched six scoreless innings to earn the win Tuesday against Cleveland. He allowed four hits and struck out five.
Hendricks has been locked in lately, as he's now earned the win in his last eight outings. In those starts, the righty has a sparkling 2.25 ERA and 0.98 WHIP across 52 innings. He looks like Chicago's ace again after a bit of a slow start to the season, and he should remain productive for fantasy managers, even if he's not a great source of strikeouts. Hendricks will look to keep rolling in his next scheduled appearance Monday against the division-rival Brewers.
Hendricks (9-4) earned the win Thursday after holding the Mets scoreless across six innings. He allowed two hits and a pair of walks while striking out seven.
Hendricks turned in another quality start while blanking his opponent for the second time this year. The right-hander has been prone to home runs, allowing 19 overall, but was able to hold the Mets in check. Over his last seven starts, Hendricks has compiled a flawless 7-0 record, lowering his season ERA to 4.13 and WHIP to 1.30. The 31-year-old lines up to make his next start at home Tuesday against Cleveland.
Hendricks (8-4) allowed two earned runs on three hits and one walk while striking out two across six innings, earning the win Saturday over the Cardinals.
Hendricks was inconsistent to begin the season, but he has posted a quality start and a win in his last six appearances. The long ball has still been an issue for him, as he allowed two more home runs Saturday, bringing the total to eight homers in his last four starts. The 31-year-old has lowered his ERA to 4.46 in 74.2 innings, but he tied a season-low two strikeouts against the Cardinals and has a low 7.0 K/9 for the season. His next start is scheduled for Thursday against the Mets.
Hendricks (7-4) allowed three earned runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out five across 6.1 innings, taking the win over the Giants on Sunday.
Hendricks allowed a first-inning home run to LaMonte Wade to start the game. He allowed an additional two runs between the first two innings. However, he settled in to provide three scoreless frames before being relieved in the seventh inning. The 31-year-old had a slow start to the season but has won his last four starts. He carries a 4.59 ERA and a 1.41 WHIP in 68.2 innings. In addition, he has a 7.3 K/9 with more than six strikeouts in a single start just once this season.
Hendricks (6-4) allowed three runs across six innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Padres. He gave up seven hits and no walks while striking out four.
Hendricks turned in a fairly typical performance, as he displayed good command with a few strikeouts to pick up the quality start and his sixth win of the year. The righty has now earned the win in his last four appearances, and he has a 2.60 ERA during that stretch. His season ERA still sits at 4.62 due to a few uncharacteristically poor outings, but Hendricks should continue to whittle away at that figure, as he's posted an ERA below 3.50 in each of the past five seasons. He's scheduled to take the mound again Sunday against the Giants.
Hendricks (5-2) allowed three runs on six hits and no walks while striking out five in seven innings to earn the win against the Pirates on Thursday.
Hendricks was hit hard early in the season, but he's now lasted at least 6.2 innings in each of his last three starts and has earned three consecutive wins. The right-hander gave up three home runs in Thursday's outing, but each of the long balls was a solo blast. Hendricks has now posted a 4.63 ERA and 1.42 WHIP in 56.1 innings across his first 10 starts of the year. He tentatively lines up to make his next start at home against the Padres on Tuesday.
Hendricks (4-4) allowed three runs (one earned) on seven hits and a walk over 6.2 innings Friday, striking out four and earning a win over the Cardinals.
Hendricks allowed an RBI double to Tommy Edman in the third inning then held the Cardinals in check until Paul Goldschmidt laced a two-run double in the sixth. He earned his second straight win to get to .500 for the first time this season alongside a 4.74 ERA. The 31-year-old right-hander is lined up for a good matchup in Pittsburgh next week.
Hendricks (3-4) earned the win Sunday against the Tigers after tossing eight innings of one-run ball, giving up eight hits and fanning eight.
Hendricks was coming off a rough stretch and entered this game having allowed four or more runs in three of his last five starts, but he bounced back with his best start of the campaign to date. He still owns a 5.27 ERA -- a figure that would rank as a career-worst mark for him -- but this outing should undoubtedly boost his confidence going forward. The right-hander is scheduled to make his next start at the Cardinals.
Hendricks (2-4) allowed six runs (four earned) across five innings to take the loss Sunday against the Pirates. He gave up nine hits and a walk while striking out three.
Hendricks had looked better in his last start Tuesday, but he's now allowed four earned runs or more in three of his last five outings. It's been an uncharacteristically rough patch for the righty, who's seen his ERA climb to 6.23. By comparison, Hendricks posted a 2.88 ERA in 2020, and he's been below a 3.50 ERA in each of the last five seasons. That track record suggests that better days are ahead. Hendricks will look to start turning things around next Sunday in a favorable matchup against the Tigers.
Hendricks (2-3) allowed just one run across seven innings to earn the win in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Dodgers. He gave up seven hits and a walk while striking out six.
Hendricks helped out the Chicago bullpen by going the distance in the seven-inning game, and the righty was much better than he was in his last outing, when he allowed seven runs across 3.2 innings. He actually blanked Los Angeles until there was one out in the seventh, when Keibert Ruiz connected for a solo home run. Hendricks has allowed seven runs on two occasions this season, both against Atlanta, which has inflated ERA to 6.07 even after the strong start Tuesday. He'll look to keep whittling down that number in his next scheduled appearance Sunday against the Pirates.
Hendricks will not start Monday against the Dodgers as the game has been postponed due to inclement weather, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.
The game will be made up as part of a split doubleheader Tuesday. Hendricks will likely start the first of those games.
Hendricks (1-3) allowed seven runs on 11 hits across 3.2 innings to take the loss Wednesday against the Braves. He struck out three and didn't issue any walks.
Hendricks probably doesn't want to see Atlanta again anytime soon, as he's now allowed 14 earned runs in 7.2 innings against the Braves this season. In his other three starts, the righty has allowed just five earned runs in 15 innings. Thankfully, Hendricks won't see Atlanta in his next scheduled start Monday, though he does line up against a potent Dodgers squad. The 31-year-old will carry a 7.54 ERA into that outing, and fantasy managers may want to tread carefully until Hendricks begins to look more like himself.
Hendricks (1-2) allowed two runs on six hits and one walk while striking out six in six innings to earn the win against the Brewers on Friday.
Hendricks struggled mightily against Atlanta on Sunday, but he was much more effective Friday and got plenty of run support from the Cubs' offense to cruise to his first win of 2021. The right-hander began Friday's contest with five scoreless frames before giving up a pair of home runs and a double in the top of the sixth inning. However, he was able to finish the inning and recorded a quality start in a blowout win. Hendricks now carries a 5.68 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 19 innings across his first four starts of the year. He'll attempt to remain effective on the road against Atlanta on Wednesday.
Hendricks (0-2) allowed seven runs on seven hits across four innings to take the loss against Atlanta on Sunday. He walked three and struck out two.
Hendricks had a first inning to forget, as he allowed six runs on four home runs. It was the first time in Cubs' history that a pitcher has allowed four home runs in the first inning, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports. Hendricks was making his first start in 11 days after missing his last turn due to a non-COVID-19 illness, so he likely had a little rust to shake off, but it was still surprising to see the righty get hit so hard. His ERA shot up from 3.00 to 6.92 with the rough outing. Hendricks will look to get back on track Friday against the Brewers, a squad he blanked across six innings of work April 7.
Hendricks (illness) will start in Sunday's series finale versus Atlanta.
A minor, non-COVID-19-related illness resulted in Hendricks being scratched ahead of his previously scheduled start Tuesday in Milwaukee, but he was cleared to make his next turn through the rotation after making a full recovery from the ailment. Hendricks was sharp in his last outing April 7 versus the Brewers, working six shutout innings while striking out six.
Hendricks (illness) is expected to start Sunday against Atlanta, Tony Andracki of Marquee Sports Network reports.
Hendricks was scratched from his start Tuesday in Milwaukee due to an illness, though he's continued to test negative for COVID-19 and hasn't been placed on any injured list. As long as that remains true until Sunday, he'll take the mound for his third start of the year. He's allowed three runs on eight hits in nine innings over his first two starts, striking out 10 while walking four.
President of baseball operations Jed Hoyer said Hendricks (illness) is feeling better after being scratched ahead of his scheduled start Tuesday against the Brewers, but the Cubs have yet to determine when he'll be ready to rejoin the rotation, Paul Sullivan of the Chicago Tribune reports.
Hendricks was experiencing symptoms of congestion and was scratched out of an abundance of caution, and since leaving Milwaukee to return to Chicago, he's tested negative for COVID-19. Assuming Hendricks continues to test negative over the next couple of days and his condition keeps improving, he may have a chance to rejoin the rotation during this weekend's series with Atlanta. Alec Mills made a spot start for Hendricks on Tuesday and would line up for another turn Sunday if Hendricks can't go.
Hendricks won't start Tuesday at Milwaukee "out of an abundance of caution" since he isn't feeling well.
The decision was announced less than a half hour before first pitch, pushing Alec Mills into an emergency spot start for the Cubs. It's unclear whether Hendricks is expected to skip his turn through the rotation, so he could still take the mound later this week.
Hendricks allowed four hits and a walk while striking out six over six scoreless innings in Wednesday's 4-2 extra-inning loss to the Brewers. He did not factor in the decision.
Hendricks and Brewers starter Brandon Woodruff engaged in a pitchers' duel Wednesday. This was an improvement over Hendricks' season debut, in which he allowed three runs on four hits and three walks in three innings to the Pirates. The right-hander has a 3.00 ERA, 1.33 WHIP and 10 strikeouts across nine innings in 2021. His next start is expected to be a rematch with the Brewers on Tuesday.
Hendricks (0-1) allowed three earned runs on four hits and three walks across three innings to take the loss Thursday against the Pirates. He struck out four.
Hendricks didn't come close to matching his 2020 Opening Day start, in which he recorded a complete-game shutout of the Brewers. The righty got off to a rough start, allowing a two-run home run to No. 2 hitter Ke'Bryan Hayes, and he was eventually pulled after 63 pitches. There will be better days ahead for Hendricks, and he'll look to turn things around when he takes the hill again Wednesday against Milwaukee.
