Kyle Hendricks News
Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks recorded his seventh quality start in Tuesday's victory versus the San Diego Padres. Hendricks was on cruise control for the first four innings, but ran into trouble in the top of the fifth inning. Hendricks allowed a solo home run to Victor Caratini and a two-run home run to Tommy Pham, both with two outs in the frame. Despite the rough inning, Hendricks bounced back with a quick top of the sixth inning. Hendricks has been annihilated by the home run ball this year and now leads the league in home runs given up. Hendricks turned his season around in May, but he has to limit the home run ball to reach what managers expected from him when they drafted the right-hander. Hendricks is now 6-4 on the season and owns a 4.62 ERA. Hendricks will face a tough San Francisco Giants offense on Sunday.
Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks picked up his fifth victory of the season Thursday versus the Pittsburgh Pirates. Hendricks went seven innings and allowed six hits, three runs, no walks and struck out five on the afternoon. Hendricks looked good in the contest and all of his runs allowed were from solo home runs. Hendricks got off to a slow start this season, but has picked things up in May with three runs or less allowed in four of his starts this month. Hendricks is now 5-4 and owns a 4.63 ERA. His next matchup will be versus a tough San Diego Padres offense on Tuesday.
Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks picked up his fourth victory of the season versus the St. Louis Cardinals on Friday evening. Hendricks exited in the bottom of the seventh inning with runners on first and third with two outs after first baseman Anthony Rizzo made an error to record what would have been the final out of the inning. Relief pitcher Tommy Nance would give up a single to Tommy Edman that drove in a run charged to Hendricks and then he got Paul Goldschmidt out to end the inning. Hendricks would finish with a final line of 6 2/3 innings and allowed seven hits, three runs (one earned), one walk and struck out four on the evening. Hendricks has been off to a rocky start this season, but he has been having a nice month of May. For the month, Hendricks owns a 2.39 ERA and has gone 6 2/3 innings with one earned run in three of his four starts. Hendricks will look to keep it going in a favorable matchup versus the Pittsburgh Pirates on Wednesday.
Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks delivered one of his strongest seasons in some time in 2020, going 6-5 with a 2.88 ERA, 1.00 WHIP, 20.3% strikeout rate, and almost seven innings pitched per start. As per his style, Hendricks relied on his control and command, posting a 2.5% walk rate with an average exit velocity and hard-hit rate in the top 18 percent of baseball. Hendricks has never been a strikeout pitcher, throwing an 87-MPH fastball and sinker. As such, he's not the sexiest fantasy pitcher, but his proven track record makes him a solid, mid-rotation fantasy starter, particularly in roto leagues. Hendricks is currently being drafted at pick 87 overall, making him the 32nd pitcher off the board. While there are a few hitters in that range who would be reasonable picks ahead of Hendricks, his relative draft ADP for pitchers makes sense.
