Kyle Hendricks will be aggressively targeted by the Cubs for an extension this offseason.
Hendricks was not a top draft pick (8th round, 2011) and only received a $125k signing bonus. His career earnings to date are a respectable, but not life altering, $2m. As a pitcher, Hendricks knows he is always one bad injury away from losing everything. Combine that with the low career earnings total, and Hendricks is likely interested in some serious guaranteed money, even if it does entail giving the Cubs a little discount.
