Chicago Cubs P Kyle Hendricks, the team's minor-league pitcher of the year in 2013, retired all eight batters he faced in the intrasquad game Wednesday, Feb. 26. "He's probably put himself on everybody's radar by the way he went about his business last year," Renteria said. "It doesn't hurt anybody to come out and do well."

The Chicago Cubs could still look to add to their stable of starting pitchers, but they've made it clear they won't go for one of the big remaining free-agent pitchers on the market, including free-agent SP Matt Garza (Rangers). Ps Justin Grimm, Kyle Hendricks and Chris Rusin could be candidates to compete for a rotation spot if nobody else is added. The Cubs also will not re-sign Scott Baker. Free-agent SPs Paul Maholm (Braves) and Jason Hammel (Orioles) have been linked to Chicago.

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks is expected to start the season at Triple-A Iowa, although pitching coach Chris Bosio indicated Tuesday, Nov. 26, that the prospect will be given a chance to make the team in spring training. "Who's to say he couldn't start for us?," Bosio asked. "I saw a 22-year-old starter (St. Louis Cardinals SP Michael Wacha) pitch in the World Series. Why can't we take a kid that's just had a couple years in the minor leagues and put him in our rotation? Baseball has no age."
