Chicago Cubs: Is Kyle Hendricks the one to worry about least?

You probably thought I’d drop Kyle Hendricks be under “consistency”, right? Well he probably could be based on last year. However, it is worth noting Hendricks made a few adjustments mid-last year and looked like the man who had a 2.94 ERA, 3.43 FIP and 1.098 WHIP from 2014-2017.

Will he have that same problem in 2019? Who knows, anything can happen in the end.

But considering he is not yet 30 years old, his track record and his style of pitching, Hendricks seems like the safest bet on being the most effective guy in the rotation. It would probably be more concerning if he struggled throughout all 2018, but he didn’t.

Next. Cubs reportedly need to move cash to add pieces. dark

Only time will tell how effective these guys are in 2019. These are just some honest worries, but we have all seen how they can perform. Now, it’s just a matter of living up to their abilities.
