After his streak of dominance, Kyle Hendricks was placed on the 10-day IL with shoulder inflammation. In a corresponding move, the Cubs recalled RHP Roman Wick from Triple-A Iowa.
Hendricks has been sensational for the Cubs. Before his loss on Friday against the Dodgers, Hendricks was 5-0 in his last six starts. Even with the spot on his record, Hendricks was 5-1 over his last six starts in 46.0 innings. He also held a 3.52 ERA and struck out 41 compared to his eight walks.
It is concerning for the Cubs that their best pitcher this whole season is now injured, but hopefully the inflammation isn’t serious or a recurring problem this season for Hendricks.
