Hendricks is a ground-ball pitcher with great command. He isn’t a flamethrower, but his control and consistency make him hard to make contact with. Strikeouts and wins should be something that Hendricks will be able to give you throughout the year.
He sported a 3.95 era last season in 32 starts, which is nothing to be ashamed of when you are pitching in the NL Central with the Cardinals and Pirates.
Having the potent offense backing him up, will likely make him even more appealing to have on your fantasy roster as he will have more than his fair share of run support. He was having in incredible spring only giving up two runs in 14 innings and should carry that into the 2016 season.
He did finally have a bad start when facing the Angels, Hendricks gave up six runs, while four were earned through 5 2/3 innings. Every pitcher has their day, so even with that poor outing, I still look for Hendricks to be a nice commodity to any fantasy roster.
Don’t wait around too long to grab him as he will not be available long.
