Hendricks pitched a gem of game Tuesday, throwing seven scoreless innings and giving up just five hits and three walks while striking out five batters in picking up the first win (1-0) of his career in the Cubs' 6-0 win over the Padres.
The Cubs designated Darwin Barney for assignment Tuesday, ensuring that Alcantara will be the regular second baseman, MLB.com's Carrie Muskat reports. "It's time for Mendy to play," GM Jed Hoyer said Tuesday. "He'll play second, he'll play center. I think he'll be in the lineup every day."
