  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Goes six innings in loss

    Hendricks (0-2) took the loss against San Diego on Monday, allowing four runs on six hits and no walks while striking out four batters over six innings.

    In Hendricks' third start of the campaign, he was able to go a season-high six innings, though he also yielded a season-high four earned runs. The veteran was efficient enough in throwing 54 of 84 pitches for a strike and issuing no free passes, but he also missed very few bats, notching just six swinging strikes. Hendricks has been so-so with a 4.70 ERA and 1.50 ERA through 15.1 innings thus far. His lack of strikeouts has long been a weight on his fantasy value, and that's not likely to change in his age-33 campaign.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Shuts down Rays

    Hendricks did not factor into the decision Tuesday, allowing one run on six hits and three walks over five innings against the Rays. He struck out three.

    Hendricks was tasked with taking on one of MLB's top offenses in just his second start of the season, but he stepped up and held them to just one run across five innings. Though Hendricks was successful in limiting damage, he struggled with command once again, walking three batters after handing out two free passes in his last start. Hendricks was also limited to just 75 pitches Tuesday, a situation worth monitoring considering he got up to 86 pitches in his season opener. the veteran righty is in line for another start during a four-game road series against the Padres.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Struggles in season debut

    Hendricks (0-1) took the loss Thursday versus the Mets, allowing five runs (three earned) on six hits and two walks while striking out five over 4.1 innings.

    Hendricks had been out since last July due to a shoulder strain. He was built up fairly well, throwing 86 pitches (56 strikes), but a combination of rust and some poor defense from his teammates made for a lackluster season debut. Hendricks has slipped from a high-end starter to a pedestrian one over the last couple of years, so he's far from a must-start in fantasy. He's lined up for a tough home matchup with the Rays next week.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Activated ahead of start

    Hendricks (shoulder) was reinstated from the injured list Thursday prior to his scheduled start against the Mets, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Hendricks' start Thursday will mark his first appearance since straining his shoulder last July. He put up a 5.75 ERA and 1.34 WHIP across his five rehab starts but was solid in his last three times out, so that momentum could carry over into his 2023 debut.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Starting Thursday

    Hendricks (shoulder) will start Thursday's game against the Mets, Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic reports.

    Hendricks has been on the injured list all season due to a strained right shoulder he suffered in July 2022. He got roughed up quite a bit during his first two rehab starts, but he was able to regroup and surrender just three earned runs across 16 innings in his final three appearances. Hendricks' return will give Jameson Taillon a few extra days of rest, as Taillon's next start will now come on Saturday against the Reds.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Season debut could be imminent

    Hendricks (shoulder) joined the Cubs on Tuesday at Wrigley Field and could soon be activated from the 15-day injured list, Bruce Levine of reports.

    The Cubs haven't confirmed Hendricks' next step, but his return to Chicago likely signals that he's completed his minor-league rehab assignment and will soon be cleared to make his season debut for the big club. Friday's series opener against the Reds appears to be a good bet for what would be his first MLB outing since he strained his shoulder last July. The veteran right-hander tossed 82 pitches over six innings of one-run ball Saturday in his fifth rehab appearance for Triple-A Iowa.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Six strong innings in rehab start

    Hendricks (shoulder) allowed one run on five hits and zero walks while striking out six over six innings in a rehab start for Triple-A Iowa on Saturday.

    Hendricks threw 82 pitches in the contest as he continues to work on building back his stamina as he recovers from the shoulder strain that has sidelined him throughout the 2023 season. The veteran right-hander should be ready to return from the 15-day injured list to make his next start with the Cubs, though the organization has yet to confirm his next step. If activated, Hendricks would likely make his 2023 MLB debut next weekend versus Cincinnati.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Another rehab start ahead

    Cubs manager David Ross said Tuesday that Hendricks (shoulder) will make at least one more minor-league rehab start before being activated from the 15-day injured list, Maddie Lee of the Chicago Sun-Times reports.

    Hendricks has joined up with his Cubs teammates in Houston but only to throw a bullpen session. He'll then head back to Triple-A Iowa, where he turned in a solid 79-pitch outing Sunday. The veteran right-hander hasn't appeared in a major-league game since last July due to a capsule tear in his shoulder.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Excels in latest rehab start

    Hendricks (shoulder) covered five innings in his rehab start Sunday with Triple-A Iowa, allowing two earned runs on six hits and two walks while striking out four.

    After a rocky beginning to his four-start rehab assignment, Hendricks has looked sharp over his last two outings, working five frames in both contests and building up to 79 pitches in Sunday's start. At this point, Hendricks appears to be fully stretched out and ready to return from the 15-day injured list, with his 2023 debut for the Cubs potentially coming as soon as Friday in Philadelphia. Young right-hander Hayden Wesneski surrendered seven earned runs -- including four home runs -- in his most recent start against the Twins over the weekend and would seem most at risk of losing his spot in the rotation to Hendricks.
