RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2016

Subscribe now to see our 2016 outlook.

2015

Hendriks was traded to the Royals in July of 2014 as part of a package deal for infielder Danny Valencia, and first appeared to be destined for long relief. Opportunity knocked when Danny Duffy experienced shoulder soreness late in the season, and Hendriks was the option manager Ned Yost leaned on to fill his spot in the rotation. It didn't yield favorable results, however, as Hendriks posted a 5.51 ERA and surrendered a .319 batting average to opposing hitters over four games as a starter. The Royals had eventually decided they had seen enough, and designated the right-hander for assignment in late October to make room on the roster for the acquisition of Moises Sierra. He was eventually traded back to the Blue Jays six days later, where he'll likely serve in the minors as an emergency spot-start option in 2015.

2014

Hendriks struggled mightily in the majors again last season, which led Minnesota to remove him from the 40-man roster and he was later claimed by the Cubs. Hendricks had an ugly 6.85 ERA in 10 outings, eight starts, with the Twins. The long ball continued to be the problem as he gave up 10 home runs after giving up 17 home runs in 17 starts in 2012. Unlike in 2012, however, he wasn't as dominant at Triple-A as he had just a 4.67 ERA and 5.7 K/9. Hendriks does have good control and excellent command of three different offspeed pitches, so there's still a chance he finally finds success in the majors. And even though he gave up eight runs in his final two outings as a reliever, he did finish strong with a 15:3 K:BB ratio in those 10.2 relief innings. Claimed off waivers by the Orioles in December, Hendriks will likely compete for a bullpen job during spring training.

2013

Hendriks had two disparate seasons in 2012 as he was dominant at Triple-A, but almost broke records for his poor performance in the majors. Hendriks had a 2.20 ERA and 82:28 K:BB in 106.1 innings in Triple-A and looked set to become a productive major league starter. However, he struggled in the big leagues, beginning the season 0-9 and was winless in his first 17 career starts (the record is 20) before finally recording a win in late September. The big difference in his almost polar opposite performances was his inability to keep the ball on the ground in the majors. He had a 43.9 percent groundball rate at Triple-A, but just 37.8 percent in the majors. He also gave up a staggering 17 home runs in 16 starts in the majors. While his major league strikeout rate was not great, Hendriks' minor league strikeout rates and velocity (90 mph average fastball) are viable enough to go along with good control and excellent command of three different off-speed pitches. It's still reasonable to think that he could develop into a decent middle-of-the-rotation starter.

2012

Hendriks entered last season as one of Minnesota's top pitching prospects and dominated at Double-A with a 2.70 ERA and 81:18 K:BB ratio in 90 innings. He had a 4.56 ERA after being promote to Triple-A, but still had good control with a 30:3 K:BB ratio in 49.1 innings. It was a strong enough performance that he got four September starts in the majors. After a decent first start he was hit hard in his next three outings. He doesn't have outstanding velocity (low-90s fastball) and his declining strikeout rate last year (5.70 K/9IP overall) is a worry. But the Australian right-hander has excellent command of three different off-speed pitches. He'll have an outside chance at a rotation job this spring, but likely begins the season at Triple-A.

2011

Despite missing a month after surgery for an appendectomy, Hendricks had a breakout season in 2010 with a 1.74 ERA and amazing 105:12 K:BB ratio in 108.2 innings between Low-A and High-A. The Australian right-hander has history of injuries but showed excellent command of a four-pitch arsenal including a low-90s fastball. A strong season at High-A or Double-A in 2011 could put him in Minnesota's major league plans in 2012.
