Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Tim Hudson (ankle) will throw off the bullpen mound on Wednesday.
Hudson underwent surgery in early January to remove bone spurs from his right ankle and is a little behind the other pitchers in camp, but there's still plenty of time for him to get ready for the season. Ryan Vogelsong and Yusmeiro Petit will function as insurance if the veteran right-hander has a setback. Feb 24 - 2:58 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy admitted Wednesday that Tim Hudson (ankle) is behind schedule.

Hudson underwent surgery in early January to remove bone spurs from his right ankle. He still has several weeks to get ready for the season, but the Giants have Ryan Vogelsong and Yusmeiro Petit as depth in case he needs extra time.

Tim Hudson indicated Friday that he's likely to retire after the 2015 season.

The 39-year-old hurler is entering his 17th big league season, and though it's likely to be his last he left the door open if he were to feel "really good physically, and strong" after the season. He's coming off surgery to remove bone spurs in his ankle, but is expected to be ready for the start of the regular season.

Tim Hudson underwent surgery Tuesday to remove painful bone spurs from his right ankle.

It's the same ankle that Hudson fractured in 2013, but this latest procedure wasn't major and he should be fully recovered in about eight weeks -- right around the start of spring training games. The 39-year-old right-hander said in November that 2015 will be his final major league season. He posted a solid 3.57 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 120/34 K/BB ratio across 189 1/3 regular-season innings in 2014 for the World Series-champion Giants.

Tim Hudson said Tuesday that he plans to retire after next season.

"I have one more year left on my contract, so I'm pretty sure that's going to be it after this season," said Hudson. The 39-year-old had never gone past the first round of the playoffs as a player before the Giants captured the World Series this season. Hudson has had a fantastic career, winning 214 games while posting a 3.45 ERA over 16 seasons.

Tim Hudson had a short leash Wednesday, lasting just 1 2/3 innings while giving up two runs in a no-decision against the Royals in Game 7 of the World Series.

It was no secret that manager Bruce Bochy would be quick with the hook in the deciding game -- there was even some question as to whether Madison Bumgarner would come back to start the game on two days' rest instead of the 39-year-old Hudson -- and when Hudson got into trouble in the second inning Bochy turned to his bullpen. Hudson gave up three hits and a walk in the game, with all three hits coming in the second inning. Hudson has one more year at $12 million left on his current contract. He'll turn 40 in July.

Tim Hudson made was defeated in his long-awaited World Series debut on Friday, surrendering three runs on four hits over 5 2/3 innings against the Royals.

The 39-year-old right-hander became the second oldest hurler to make his debut on the grandest stage. He gave up a leadoff double to Alcides Escobar to begin the ballgame, who advanced to third and then scored on consecutive ground balls. He settled in nicely afterwards, retiring 12 in a row at one point, until the Royals strung three hits together to scratch out a pair of runs in the sixth inning. Now facing a 2-1 deficit, the Giants are scheduled to turn to Ryan Vogelsong in an attempt to even the series back up.

Tim Hudson will start Game 3 of the World Series against the Royals.

Hudson will take the hill when the Giants return to AT&T Park Friday. He'll look to get back on track after he allowed four runs over 6 1/3 innings in a no-decision against the Cardinals in the NLCS. Royals manager Ned Yost hasn't yet announced who will oppose Hudson in Game 3.

Tim Hudson was good early but faded late in Tuesday's 5-4 NLCS Game 3 victory over the Cardinals.

Hudson was spotted a 4-0 lead after the Giants plated four runs in the bottom of the first, but the Cards chipped away with two runs in the fourth and another tally in the sixth. Even though Hudson appeared to be clearly fading, manager Bruce Bochy sent him out for the seventh and he served up a one-out, game-tying solo homer to Randal Grichuk. The Giants eventually won it in extras on a Randy Choate throwing error. Hudson is set up for Game 7 in St. Louis if the series goes the distance.

Giants manager Bruce Bochy confirmed Sunday that Tim Hudson will start Game 3 of the NLCS against the Cardinals.

The veteran right-hander surrendered just one run over 7 1/3 innings in his lone start in the Divisional Series. Ryan Vogelsong will follow in Game 4 with Madison Bumgarner taking the ball again in Game 5.

Tim Hudson is scheduled to start for the Giants in Game 2 of their NLDS matchup with the Nationals.

Jake Peavy is taking Game 1 and Madison Bumgarner, who threw a shutout in Wednesday night's Wild Card Game defeat of the Pirates, will start NLDS Game 3. Hudson, 39, registered a 3.57 ERA, 1.23 WHIP, and 120/34 K/BB ratio across 189 1/3 regular-season innings.

Tim Hudson served up three three runs on five hits across 5 1/3 frames in Wednesday’s loss to the Dodgers.

Hudson struck out four and walked one in another poor start. He hasn't won a game since August 22. Hudson was complaining of a sore hip as recently as last week, and the pain is apparent in his September numbers (9.92 ERA and 2.08 WHIP coming into tonight). The veteran concludes the regular season 9-13 with a 3.57 ERA, 1.23 WHIP and 116/33 K/BB ratio over 184 innings. The 39-year-old will honor the last year of his two-year, $23 million contract with the Giants in 2015. San Francisco would certainly take 30-plus starts and a mid-3 ERA again.

Tim Hudson gave up five runs -- four earned -- in 4 1/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Padres.

Whether Hudson's sore hip was still a problem or not, the Giants have to be concerned about his struggles of late. He's made each of his last three starts on an extra day of rest, but it hasn't done him much good. He's now 9-12 with a 3.52 ERA for the season. Mixed leaguers will probably want to try someone else next week.

Tim Hudson has been receiving treatment on his right hip.

Hudson had issues with his left hip earlier this season. However, he'll throw a bullpen session on Tuesday and remains in line to make his next scheduled start Friday.

Tim Hudson was charged with six runs in one-plus innings Saturday in a loss to the Dodgers.

It was the shortest start of Hudson's career, eclipsing a 1 2/3-innings outing against the Red Sox on April 15, 2000. He hadn't had a start end short of three innings since way back in 2007. Hudson walked none and struck out two tonight, but he allowed eight hits, including five in a row in the first. The decision was made to pull him after back-to-back singles to start the second, and both inherited runners came around to score off Tim Lincecum. Obviously, Hudson hasn't looked nearly as good in the second half as he did in the first. Still, this probably shouldn't be taken as a sign that he's completely untrustworthy. It's best to stick with him with a start against the Padres next on the schedule.
