  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Behind schedule but feels good

    Hendricks' shoulder, which he strained last July, feels "amazing," but he's not expected to throw off a mound until March 1, leaving his availability for Opening Day up in the air, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Hendricks struggled to a 4.80 ERA in 16 starts before suffering the injury, which was eventually revealed to be a capsular tear. He's been working his way back without undergoing surgery, but he's nonetheless behind his usual preseason schedule. Still, it's a positive that he's feeling good, and it looks as though he has a shot at making any potential trip to the injured list a brief one.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Healing, but not yet throwing

    Cubs president of baseball operations Jed Hoyer said Monday that Hendricks hasn't started a throwing program, but the right-hander is feeling good as he recovers from a capsular tear in his shoulder, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    According to Patrick Mooney and Sahadev Sharma of The Athletic, Hendricks has been in "constant communication" with the Cubs since being shut down in August after he was diagnosed with the injury. The 32-year-old is expected to train at the Cubs' complex in Arizona throughout the offseason and will continue to perform strengthening exercises until he's cleared to start throwing again. Even though the Cubs have a number of young starters who appear ready for extended looks at the big-league level in 2023, a healthy Hendricks will be penciled in for a rotation spot, even after a down season in which he posted a 4.80 ERA and 1.29 WHIP in 84.1 innings before the injury surfaced.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Moves to 60-day IL

    Hendricks (shoulder) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Wednesday, Taylor McGregor of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Hendricks' move to the 60-day IL isn't surprising since the Cubs announced Monday that he won't return to the field this season. The right-hander isn't expected to need surgery and is on track to resume strengthening work in a few weeks, so it seems likely that he'll be ready to go in time for spring training in 2023.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Done for season with capsular tear

    Hendricks disclosed Monday that he's recovering from a capsular tear in his right shoulder and won't return from the 15-day injured this season, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    Hendricks wasn't believed to be dealing with any structural damage in his shoulder after being diagnosed with a strain in early July, but he apparently did suffer a tear that "stems from a chronic issue, rather than happening on one pitch," according to Montemurro. The veteran right-hander isn't expected to need surgery to recover from the injury, and he will report to the Cubs' spring training facility in Arizona to get in some strengthening work in over the next 2-to-4 weeks. Since his focus at this stage is getting healthy for spring training, the non-contending Cubs won't push him to make a late-season return from the IL.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Could be done for 2022

    Hendricks (shoulder) said Sunday that he'll move his rehab to the Cubs' spring training facility in Arizona this week to build up his throwing, but the right-hander noted his main focus at this stage in the season is to get ready for 2023, Jordan Bastian of MLB.com reports.

    Though Hendricks didn't rule himself out for the season while he continues to recover from a strained right shoulder, his comments implied that he won't be pushing for a return as the 52-68 Cubs play out the string over the next six and a half weeks. Before the Cubs provide a more definitive stance on Hendricks' potential return in 2022, the team will likely wait and see how he responds to throwing bullpen sessions and facing hitters in Arizona over the next few weeks. Given the strong likelihood that Hendricks will be shut down or make only a couple late-season starts if he does get activated from the 15-day injured list at some point, fantasy managers still holding him in redraft leagues can probably feel comfortable cutting bait at this point.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Ready to resume throwing

    Hendricks (shoulder) has been cleared to resume throwing, according to Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune.

    After undergoing several MRIs and resting for more than a month, Hendricks was finally given the green light to pick up a baseball. It's unclear how long it will take Hendricks to get back to 100 percent, but with the Cubs out of the playoff chase, expect them to proceed with caution.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Will rest for another week

    Hendricks is still experiencing inflammation in his right shoulder and will rest for another week, Mike McGraw of the Chicago Daily Herald reports.

    Manager David Ross said the MRI that Hendricks underwent Monday showed improvement, but the pitcher isn't ready to resume baseball activities just yet. He will be re-evaluated again at some point next week.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Undergoes MRI on Monday

    Hendricks underwent an MRI on his injured shoulder Monday, Tim Stebbins of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Hendricks has been shut down since landing on the injured list in early July, and he was sent for another check-up Monday. The results of the exam will determine whether or not Hendricks has any chance to return before the season comes to a close.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Facing shutdown

    Hendricks (shoulder) will be shut down for at least 2-to-3 weeks before he's cleared to play catch, Gordon Wittenmyer of NBC Sports Chicago reports.

    Hendricks has been on the injured list for a week due to a right shoulder strain, and he recently underwent an MRI that didn't reveal any structural damage. However, the right-hander will require more than the minimum of 15 days on the shelf since he won't be able to resume throwing until at least late July. A better timetable for Hendricks' return is unlikely to be revealed until he begins a throwing program.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: No structural damage

    Hendricks underwent an MRI on his right shoulder Thursday that revealed no structural damage, Meghan Montemurro of the Chicago Tribune reports.

    This news eliminates the possibility of surgery to correct the shoulder issue, which likely would have sidelined Hendricks for the rest of the season. There's no timetable for his return, though the team expects to update Hendicks' status once it finishes the weekend series in Los Angeles.

  • Cubs' Kyle Hendricks: Goes on IL with shoulder strain

    Cubs manager David Ross said Hendricks will be placed on the 15-day injured list Wednesday with a right shoulder strain, Andy Martinez of Marquee Sports Network reports.

    Hendricks will miss his final two turns through the rotation before the All-Star break after sustaining the injury in Tuesday's win over the Brewers, but he'll be eligible to come off the IL when the Cubs open their second-half schedule July 22 in Philadelphia. It's not yet clear if the veteran right-hander will be ready to go by then, as his availability coming out of the All-Star break will hinge on how much progress he makes in his rehab and throwing program over the next two weeks. He previously avoided the IL last June but still went 13 days between starts after experiencing shoulder fatigue, so it's possible the Cubs take a more conservative approach with his recovery this time around. Hendricks joins five other starting pitchers on the IL, though both Marcus Stroman (shoulder) and Drew Smyly (oblique) appear close to being activated, and either of the two could be an option to replace Hendricks' next turn in the rotation Sunday in Los Angeles.
