One of the most interesting scouting reports on Chicago Cubs rookie standout Kyle Hendricks was provided Tuesday night by first baseman Anthony Rizzo.

“He works well, he works fast,” Rizzo said after Hendricks pitched 7 1/3 shutout innings to lead the Cubs to a 3-0 win over the National League Central leading Brewers in a game that took only two hours, 22 minutes.

“He knows what he’s doing. He doesn’t have overpowering stuff, and he knows that. When guys get on base, they’re saying he’s tough, he’s sneaky, got good pitches and commands them. It’s nice. The best part he can induce a double play ball whenever.”

While the likes of Javier Baez, Arismendy Alcantara, Kris Bryant and Jorge Soler are receiving most of the attention regarding the Cubs’ promising future, Hendricks continues to establish himself as a part of the rotation for 2015.

After limiting the Brewers’ lineup to three hits through the first seven innings, Hendricks reached new heights. Hendricks (4-1) has pitched five consecutive quality starts (pitching at least six innings and allowing three earned runs or fewer), equaling the most by a Cubs rookie since Randy Wells from May 16-June 7, 2009.
