Cubs | Kyle Hendericks suffering from road woes

Wed, 26 Aug 2015 15:43:53 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks has a 4.44 ERA on the road this season, and he will make a road start against the San Francisco Giants Wednesday, Aug. 26.

Fantasy Tip: Home or away, Hendricks ($5,500, 11.0% of cap) has been struggling of late and owns a 5.97 ERA over his past six starts. He is an incredibly risky start in all fantasy formats Wednesday, including FantasyScore. What is encouraging, though, is Hendricks has 34 strikeouts over 31 2/3 innings during his recent slump, and he owns a 3.45 FIP suggesting he is pitching better than his results.

Cubs | Jon Lester starting Friday

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 17:03:11 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Jon Lester will make his next start against the San Francisco Giants at home Friday, Aug. 7, after having his start rained out Monday, Aug. 3. SP Dan Haren is going against the Pittsburgh Pirates in his debut with the team Wednesday, Aug. 5, and SP Jason Hammel will go against the Giants Thursday, Aug. 6. SP Kyle Hendricks will be pushed back a day to Saturday, Aug. 8, while SP Jake Arrieta will pitch on normal rest Sunday, Aug. 9. Lester threw only 31 pitches Monday night.

Fantasy Tip: The fact that Lester ($8,500, 17.0% of cap) threw some before the game was canceled Monday shouldn't make you hesitant to use him Friday on FantasyScore. However, the Gigantes have the third-best OPS in the league (.766) on the road this year, meaning you may want to save Lester for another day.

Cubs | Kyle Hendericks draws Game 1 Wednesday

Mon, 20 Jul 2015 14:52:04 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks is starting Game 1 of the doubleheader against the Cincinnati Reds Wednesday, July 22.

Fantasy Tip: Hendricks ($5,800, 11.6% of cap) has been stingy over his last four outings and owns a 0.35 ERA with 21 strikeouts over 26 innings during the span. He'll be worth considering as a No. 2 starting pitcher option for FantasyScore players Wednesday.

Cubs | Kyle Hendricks on scoreless innings streak

Thu, 16 Jul 2015 15:53:02 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks will be starting Friday, July 17, against the Atlanta Braves while carrying a scoreless streak of 22 1/3 innings pitched, having not allowed a run over his past three outings.

Fantasy Tip: Although he doesn't get nearly the same amount of attention as some of the other hurlers on the Cubs pitching staff, there's no denying that Hendricks ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) has developed into a safe, reliable option for all fantasy leagues. Hendricks draws a favorable matchup in his first assignment following the All-Star break, taking on a Braves lineup that has been scuffling since Freddie Freeman went down with an injury.

Cubs | Kyle Hendricks extends scoreless streak

Fri, 10 Jul 2015 18:17:24 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks allowed five hits over seven scoreless innings in a no-decision against the Chicago White Sox Friday, July 10. He had no walks and four strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Hendricks ($5,100, 10.2% of cap) extended his scoreless innings streak to 22 1/3 frames and has not allowed a run in his last three outings. He should be viewed as a high-risk, high-reward FantasyScore option who may merit consideration in other formats if he continues pitching this well.

Cubs | Kyle Hendricks tosses tidy outing

Tue, 30 Jun 2015 19:47:14 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks struck out six batters over six scoreless inning while allowing just three hits and a walk during the Cubs' 1-0 win over the New York Mets Tuesday, June 30.

Fantasy Tip: Hendricks ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) has been inconsistent this season, but when he is on, he returns high-end numbers. Continue to view him as a high-risk, high-reward option for FantasyScore contests until he strings together a few strong outings in a row. Seasonal owners shouldn't be afraid to bench him against tough opponents, either. Although, Hendricks shouldn't be reserved for deep mixed leagues.

Cubs | Kyle Hendricks not lasting long

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 22:11:43 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks lasted just five innings in a loss Wednesday, June 24, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He has not recorded an out in the sixth innings in any of his past four starts.

Fantasy Tip: Hendricks ($4,600; or 9.2% of cap) has struggled lately and is not a pitcher who can be trusted in FantasyScore until he starts showing a little more consistency.

Cubs | Kyle Hendricks winless at Wrigley Field

Wed, 24 Jun 2015 14:22:07 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks has not registered a win at Wrigley Field this season, despite the Cubs winning four of his five home starts. Hendricks starts against the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, June 24.

Fantasy Tip: With Chicago winning the first two games of the series, Hendricks ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) and the Cubs could be hard pressed to top the Dodgers Wednesday and sweep the series. FantasyScore players should view Hendricks as a high-risk, high-reward option Wednesday, especially after suffering through the worst start of his career during his last outing.

Cubs | Kyle Hendricks strong in shortened day

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 08:41:13 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks struck out seven in five innings during a rain-shortened outing Saturday, June 13, against the Cincinnati Reds.

Fantasy Tip: Hendricks ($4,600, 9.2% of cap) allowed four hits including a solo home run in five full innings of work. Hendricks has now been very impressive in four of his last five starts, and he'll be an excellent FantasyScore option Thursday, June 18, against the Cleveland Indians.

Cubs | Kyle Hendricks has solid outing

Tue, 26 May 2015 20:18:26 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks allowed one run on four hits in seven innings against the Washington Nationals Tuesday, May 26. He struck out four batters and walked two during the game.

Fantasy Tip: Hendricks ($3,500, 7.0% of cap) has been a bit inconsistent over his last few starts but has one run or fewer in three of his last four starts. Hendricks is scheduled to make his next start against the Miami Marlins and could be a cheaper option for owners on FantasyScore to consider.
