Cubs | Kyle Hendricks goes the distance

Sat, 28 May 2016 15:30:05 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks easily handled the Philadelphia Phillies on Saturday, May 28, logging the second complete game of his career after allowing one run on five hits while striking out seven during a 105-pitch outing.

Fantasy Tip: The Dartmouth product hadn't won since tossing six scoreless innings against the Washington Nationals on May 5, but luck hasn't been on his side either; he entered today's start ranked second-to-last in the National League in run support. Hendricks is worth using in most leagues for his next scheduled start at home against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Thursday.

Giants | Hunter Pence out Sunday

Sun, 22 May 2016 14:34:00 -0700

San Francisco Giants OF Hunter Pence (hamstring) is out Sunday, May 22, against the Chicago Cubs due to hamstring issues. OF Gregor Blanco will bat seventh and play right field against Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks.

Fantasy Tip: It appears the hamstring is sore and shouldn't be a major issue moving forward, although Pence has had his share of health issues in the past that have dulled his fantasy value. For now, sit Pence in daily leagues and stay tuned to see if it will affect his value next week. Blanco is 13-for-56 (.252) with only seven RBIs and carries little fantasy value.

Cubs | Another quality start for Kyle Hendricks

Wed, 11 May 2016 15:19:27 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks picked up another quality start Wednesday, May 11, against the San Diego Padres in the first game of a doubleheader. He registered 6 2/3 innings, yielding three runs (two earned) on six hits and a walk. He also struck out eight.

Fantasy Tip: That makes it five quality starts in six tries for the 26-year-old right-hander. Hendricks has been very steady thus far, while proving to have value in all types of leagues. It also helps that he pitches for the best team in baseball, so he'll get his fair share of wins despite not being victorious this afternoon. The season-high eight strikeouts were a nice bonus, too.

Cubs | Kyle Hendricks, John Lackey to start DH

Mon, 09 May 2016 21:15:06 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks will start the first game of a doubleheader Wednesday, May 11, against the San Diego Padres, while SP John Lackey will start the second game of the day-night twin bill.

Fantasy Tip: Hendricks and Lackey shifted around a bit due to the rainout Monday, but still get to face the Padres. San Diego leads the National League in strikeouts on offense, so both pitchers are fantastic fantasy options and DFS plays.

Brewers | Ryan Braun out of Tuesday lineup

Tue, 26 Apr 2016 13:47:28 -0700

Milwaukee Brewers OF Ryan Braun is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 26, against the Chicago Cubs. OF Ramon Flores is batting seventh in Braun's place against Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks.

Fantasy Tip: This just appears to be a normal night off for Braun, so there is no reason to panic. Simply rest Braun in daily leagues and substitute someone else. Flores has a .133 average in the past week, so he has no fantasy value.

Cubs | Kyle Hendricks a bit unlucky in loss

Fri, 15 Apr 2016 15:17:13 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks allowed four runs -- two unearned -- on seven hits while striking out five batters and not issuing a walk through six innings during the Cubs' 6-1 loss to the Colorado Rockies Friday, April 15.

Fantasy Tip: Hendricks has 10 strikeouts through 12 2/3 innings with a 2.84 ERA and 0.95 WHIP over his first two starts. The defense and offense spoiled his shot at a win Friday, but that won't be the norm this season. Continue to view Hendricks as a solid back-of-the-rotation arm for your fantasy roster.

Cubs | Kyle Hendricks limits Arizona

Sun, 10 Apr 2016 05:45:41 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks allowed two runs on four hits and a walk while striking out five batters during Chicago's 4-2 win over the Arizona Diamondbacks Saturday, April 9.

Fantasy Tip: Hendricks posted a solid 22.6 strikeout percentage with 167 total through 180 innings in 2015, which flew under the radar in most mixed formats because of his unattractive eight wins and 3.95 ERA. However, he likely was dealt some bad luck last year given his 3.36 FIP. Expect better results across all stat columns in 2016, and Hendricks is a viable No. 5 arm for your virtual rotation.

Diamondbacks | Jake Lamb out of the lineup Saturday

Sat, 09 Apr 2016 12:55:53 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks 3B Jake Lamb is not in the starting lineup against Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks on Saturday, April 9. OF/3B Brandon Drury will get the nod at third base and bat seventh.

Fantasy Tip: This appears to be a rest day for Lamb, who played the first five games of the season but has cooled off offensively after an impressive showing during the spring. Since Lamb, a left-handed hitter, started against a southpaw on Opening Day, Drury - one of the team's top prospects - appears to be clearly behind the right-handed Lamb, so he might be hard-pressed to overtake the veteran anytime soon, making both players deep-league stashes at best right now.

Cubs | Kyle Hendricks having nice spring

Wed, 23 Mar 2016 16:24:38 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks is tied for third amongst all pitchers this spring with 19 strikeouts, while amassing a 1.89 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in four starts and one relief appearance. Furthermore, hitters have registered just a .203 batting average versus the right-hander.

Fantasy Tip: Not known for his ability to rack up strikeouts, Hendricks has been a pleasant surprise this spring in that department, and it's something that could propel him into being a more useful fantasy asset in all mixed leagues. He's exhibited glimpses of promise thus far since making his major league debut a couple of years ago, and being on one of the best teams in the National League, Hendricks could offer some intriguing value to fantasy owners.

Cubs | Kyle Hendricks spins tidy outing

Fri, 18 Mar 2016 14:23:51 -0700

Chicago Cubs SP Kyle Hendricks allowed one run on two hits with three strikeouts through five innings during his Cactus League start Friday, March 18.

Fantasy Tip: Hendricks improved his strikeout rate significantly last season jumping from 5.4 K/9 to a 8.4 mark while keeping his FIP relatively similar (3.32 in 2014 compared to 3.36 last season). Pitching for a contender should help in the win column, too. Hendricks is an upside rotation filler available late in mixed leagues drafts.
