Kyle Hendricks (SP, CHC) - Waiver Wire Analysis


BALLER MOVE: Add in 12+ Team Leagues

OWNED IN: 16% of Fleaflicker Leagues

ANALYSIS: Kyle Hendricks has been mostly inconsistent this season, but has been great his last two starts. Starting at San Diego, Hendricks threw a complete game shutout, giving up only five hits and striking out seven. He followed this up his last time out against the Nationals, throwing seven innings of one run ball, allowing four hits and striking out four. His lone blemish was a home run to Bryce Harper. On the year, Hendricks has a 1-1 record with a 3.76 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and a 41:11 K:BB rate.

Hendricks will begin the week against the Marlins, whose struggles have been one of the biggest surprises of the year. On the year, their .675 OPS makes them a bottom five team. Hendricks will also be opposed by Jose Urena, who gave up five runs on 10 hits in 4 2/3 innings during his MLB debut on Tuesday. This gives Hendricks a high probability of getting a win. This is followed by another start against the Nationals, this time in our nation’s capital. Hendricks showed in his previous start he can be dominant when facing Washington. The Nationals splits show a big drop in production when they are home, scoring 87 runs in 21 home games, 22nd best in MLB, while plating 129 men in 25 games on the road, good for second in the league.
