Mooney: Javier Baez, Kyle Hendricks aren’t showing any nerves with Cubs

With Monday’s 4-1 victory over the New York Mets, Hendricks (5-1, 1.66 ERA) became the franchise’s first rookie to put together six consecutive quality starts since Kerry Wood in 1998.

“I reserve the right to (not) pigeonhole him or compare him to anybody,” Renteria said. “I think he’s establishing himself. I know it’s a short snippet, but he’s been very, very good. He is Maddux-like, a little bit, in his execution, his approach.”

Hendricks – who’s posted a 0.97 WHIP through almost 50 innings – has never looked rattled or in awe of his surroundings.

Baez hits another homer that went 434 feet and Kyle throws another gem.  With Billy Hamilton slowing down is Kyle’s only competition for ROY Jacob deGrom?
