Kyle Hendricks yielded two runs over 4 2/3 innings Monday in his Cactus League start against the Rockies. Both runs scored in the fourth inning. Hendricks struck out four and walked none and now owns a stingy 14/0 K/BB ratio and 2.63 ERA in 13 2/3 innings across his four starts this spring. The 2017 NL ERA leader is looking very sharp as the regular season approaches.

Kyle Hendricks yielded two runs on five hits over four innings in Wednesday's Cactus League game against the Diamondbacks. Hendricks struck out five and did not walk a batter on the evening. A two-run double off the bat of Ketel Marte in the second inning represented the run-scoring damage on his line. Last season, Hendricks pitched to a lovely 2.13 ERA, 0.97 WHIP and 170/44 K/BB ratio across 190 innings. That output earned him Players Choice NL Outstanding Pitcher honors.

Kyle Hendricks took a no-decision in Wednesday's 10-inning, 8-7 Game 7 World Series win over the Indians, helping the Cubs to their first title since 1908 with 4 2/3 innings of two-run ball. Hendricks came out firing, landing eight of his first nine pitches for strikes in a scoreless first inning. He would throw one more shutout frame before the Indians got to him via an RBI single off the bat of Carlos Santana in the third inning. Santana ended Hendricks' night a short while later, drawing a walk with two outs in the fifth inning. Santana would then come around to score on a Jon Lester wild pitch. Hendricks finished out his evening having allowed just four hits, with two strikeouts and one walk. He was in line to pick up the win until Rajai Davis smacked a dramatic two-run, game-tying home run off Aroldis Chapman with two outs in the eighth inning. The Cubs would eventually pull out the historic victory in the 10th.

Kyle Hendricks wasn't at his best in Game 3 of the World Series against the Indians on Friday, allowing six hits and a pair of walks over 4 1/3 scoreless innings in a no-decision. Hendricks was able to avoid any damage, helped out by his six strikeouts. He loaded the bases with one out in the fifth inning, prompting manager Joe Maddon to turn to Justin Grimm who got Francisco Lindor to hit into a double play, keeping the game scoreless. The right-hander has carried his regular season dominance over to the playoffs, compiling a 1.31 ERA, 1.02 WHIP and 17/6 K/BB ratio over 20 2/3 innings. He'll be called upon again should the series go to a decisive seventh game.

Kyle Hendricks allowed just two hits over 7 1/3 shutout innings Saturday in the Cubs' win over the Dodgers in Game 6 of the NLCS. He finished with six strikeouts. It was a masterpiece from start to finish. Hendricks was quietly one of the best pitchers in baseball this year and reminded us why Saturday by out-pitching Clayton Kershaw in the Cubs’ biggest game of the season. He retired 15 straight hitters before yielding a one-out single to Josh Reddick in the eighth inning. Before that, he hadn’t allowed a hit since the first when Andrew Toles smacked a single on the game’s first pitch. Hendricks has been lights out this postseason with a 1.65 ERA over 16 1/3 innings. The Cubs are headed back to the World Series for the first time since 1945. They’ll play the Indians in Game 1 on Tuesday night.

Kyle Hendricks pitched well in a losing effort against the Dodgers in Game 2 of the NLCS on Sunday, surrendering just one run on three hits over 5 1/3 innings. The right-hander uncharacteristically walked four on the night while striking out five. The only blemish on his evening was a solo home run off the bat of Adrian Gonzalez leading off the second inning. That would prove to be the only offense in the ballgame for either side. He'll get a chance for redemption against Clayton Kershaw and the Dodgers should the series stretch to six games.

Kyle Hendricks (forearm) said he is "good to go." Hendricks was struck in the right forearm by an Angel Pagan line drive during his NLDS Game 2 start against the Giants on Saturday, but he escaped with a minor bruise. The right-hander should be fine for the NLCS. He might also be available in emergency long relief if the Giants force a Game 5 in the Division Series. Cubs manager Joe Maddon has quite a few great options.
