Kyle Hendricks News
Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks (shoulder), who missed the last three months of the 2022 season due to a capsular tear in his right shoulder, has resumed a throwing program this offseason. He's on a regimented throwing program and is playing catch on flat ground, and pitching coach Tommy Hottovy is encouraged by Hendricks' progress. In a best-case scenario, Hendricks will feel great in spring training and be ready by Opening Day. However, the Cubs won't speed up Hendricks' process just so he can be ready by Opening Day. Chicago has enough starting pitching depth to get by early in the year if Hendricks isn't ready, and it sounds as though there's a good chance he won't be.
Chicago Cubs starting pitcher Kyle Hendricks (shoulder) said that he'll head to Arizona after the team's current homestand with the goal of resuming a throwing program. However, the veteran hurler said his focus is on getting right for the 2023 season while having a full offseason. With the Cubs well out of contention, Hendricks' priority isn't to return to close out the 2022 campaign, so fantasy managers can likely let him go in single-year formats. The 32-year-old right-hander has had a tough year, too, going 4-6 with a 4.80 ERA (4.83 FIP), a 1.29 WHIP and a 66:24 K:BB in 84 1/3 innings over his 16 starts for Chicago.
Chicago Cubs right-hander Kyle Hendricks (shoulder) has been cleared by the team to begin rehabbing in Arizona. Hendricks has been sidelined with a strained right shoulder since July 6. The team has yet to decide whether Hendricks will work toward pitching again in 2022 or if he will focus on returning to full strength for the beginning of the 2023 season. Hendricks has made 16 starts for the Cubs this season, posting a 4-6 record, 4.80 ERA, and 66 strikeouts over 84 1/3 innings of work.
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.
