It is Hendricks’ first major league outing since last July due to a capsular tear in his pitching shoulder.
Hendricks is the lone remaining member of the Cubs‘ 2016 World Series championship team. He led the National League with a 2.13 ERA that season
Hendricks, 33, made five rehab starts at Triple-A Iowa, going 2-1 with a 5.75 ERA in 20 1/3 innings.
The 33-year-old veteran is 87-61 with a 3.46 career ERA in 223 games (222 starts) since breaking in with Chicago in 2014.
The Cubs optioned infielder Nick Madrigal to Triple-A Iowa in a corresponding move. The 26-year-old is batting .247 with nine RBIs in 34 games
