Tim Hudson pitched seven strong innings, allowing just one run, in a win over the Braves on Friday.
It was the first time Hudson faced the Braves since wrapping up his nine-year stint in Atlanta in 2013 (he did pitch against them once while with the A's). He's struggled to string together consecutive quality starts this season, but he still looks pretty good when he's on. His days as a mixed-league starter seem over, but he should provide value in NL-only leagues the rest of the way. May 30 - 2:00 AM

Tim Hudson was obliterated in a loss to the Rockies at Coors Field on Sunday, surrendering eight runs on six hits over 3 2/3 innings.

The veteran right-hander also issued a pair of walks while striking out just one. All of the damage except for one run came in the fourth inning, where the Rockies ambushed Hudson to score seven runs, the last two which rode home on a three-run blast by Nolan Arenado after Hudson had departed. Now 2-4 on the season, he'll look to improve upon an unsightly 5.04 ERA and 1.37 WHIP when he takes on the Braves at home on Friday.
May 24 - 9:23 PM

Tim Hudson stymied the Dodgers in a win on Tuesday, tossing 6 1/3 scoreless innings.

Hudson scattered five hits and a pair of walks while striking out two. The Dodgers did have their opportunities, particularly early, but the right-hander was able to induce ground balls to help himself out of trouble. Hudson has had his share of struggles this season, but Tuesday's outing brings his ERA down to 4.01 with a 1.32 WHIP and a 25/13 K/BB ratio in 51 2/3 innings. He'll look to keep it going at Coors Field against the Rockies in his next outing.
May 20 - 1:19 AM

Tim Hudson allowed three runs through 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision versus the Astros on Wednesday.

After giving up a whopping 15 hits last time out, Hudson scaled it back to six tonight. Unfortunately, two of them were homers. He's always been adept at avoiding the long ball, but he's given up eight in his last five starts. Before that, he had allowed 15 in 33 career starts for the Giants. Hudson should bounce back from this, but he's no longer an every-week mixed league option.
May 13 - 11:54 PM

Tim Hudson allowed six runs on 15 hits over 6 2/3 innings in Thursday's 7-2 loss to the Marlins.

At least he didn't walk a batter? Hudson came into the game with a 3.78 ERA and 1.14 WHIP, but his 16/9 K/BB rate in 33-plus innings told you better. He's got a tough matchup in Houston on deck and isn't a strong bet to exit with an ERA lower than his current 4.50.
May 8 - 12:55 AM

Tim Hudson held the Angels to three earned runs over eight innings Saturday in a win over the Angels.

Hudson worked efficiently throughout the afternoon, needing only 96 pitches to get through eight frames. He walked two batters but only gave up two hits -- both of them solo home runs. The veteran right-hander will carry a 1-2 record, 3.51 ERA, and 1.12 WHIP into his next start at home against the Marlins.
May 2 - 6:50 PM

Tim Hudson pitched a nice game against the Rockies on Saturday, allowing three runs on eight hits across seven innings.

Hudson would not factor in the decision, as the Giants blew a 4-3 lead in the ninth inning to deprive their starter of a win. Carlos Gonzalez and Troy Tulowitzki touched Hudson up for a pair of solo home runs, but there's no shame in that. The veteran right-hander now holds a 3.91 ERA and a 13/7 K/BB ratio. Five of those walks came in one game against the Padres. Hudson will take on the Angels in his next outing.
Apr 26 - 12:07 AM

Tim Hudson allowed five runs over five innings in Sunday's loss to the Diamondbacks.

Paul Goldschmidt touched Hudson up for a two-run homer in the first inning, but it was the third inning where Hudson really lost things. After allowing a single and walking two batters, Hudson hit catcher Jordan Pacheco to score a run. Chris Owings promptly followed that up with a two-run single to put the Giants down 5-1. Neither team would score the rest of the way. Hudson's a veteran pitcher and the tough outing shouldn't be more than a bump in the road. Even with the wild day, he still holds a 3.93 ERA. He'll try to put things back on track when he rolls into Denver to face the Rockies in his next start.
Apr 19 - 7:23 PM

Tim Hudson allowed three runs over seven innings in a losing effort against the Rockies on Tuesday.

Hudson allowed two runs in the second inning. Corey Dickerson hit an RBI single and later scored on a wild pitch. In the fourth, D.J. LeMahieu pushed across a run with a squeeze bunt. Tim Hudson allowed eight hits in total, walked none, and struck out four. The veteran right-hander will take a 2.03 ERA into his third start of the season at home against the Diamondbacks.
Apr 15 - 1:26 AM

Despite five walks, Tim Hudson blanked the Padres for 6 1/3 innings on Thursday.

One was intentional, but it was still the first time since June 19, 2012 that Hudson has walked as many as fine in a start. He also gave up five hits and threw a wild pitch. Still, the Padres kept hitting into double plays and never could push a run across. He'll probably find his control next time out.
Apr 9 - 11:13 PM

Tim Hudson tossed five scoreless innings against the Athletics in Saturday's spring training finale.

Hudson ends the spring on a good note, allowing four hits and a pair of walks while striking out only one. Over 21 2/3 spring innings, Hudson compiled a 3.32 ERA with a 13/8 K/BB ratio. The 39-year-old is entering what is very likely to be the last season of his career, but still has mixed league appeal. Hudson posted a 3.57 ERA in 31 starts for the Giants last season.
Apr 4 - 7:20 PM

Tim Hudson wasn't very sharp on Monday, serving up four runs on 10 hits and two walks in 4 2/3 innings against the Cubs.

All told, it could have been much worse. The Cubs scored once in each of the first four innings. Hudson has mostly pitched well this spring and looks regular season-ready in what may be the 39-year-old's final season. He compiled a 3.57 ERA and a 120/34 K/BB ratio in 189 1/3 innings for the Giants last season.
Mar 30 - 7:22 PM

Tim Hudson had a quality start facing the Rockies on Wednesday, yielding three runs in six innings.

All the damage was done in the fourth inning, when the Rockies scored two runs on a Troy Tulowitzki homer and another on a Justin Morneau ground out. Hudson allowed six hits overall, walking none, and striking out three. The 39-year-old has had a good spring so far, allowing four runs in 12 innings with a 9/4 K/BB ratio.
Mar 25 - 6:48 PM

Tim Hudson delivered a strong start against the Reds in Cactus League play on Friday, allowing just one run on one hit in his 3 2/3 innings of work.

The veteran right-hander punched out four on the night while issuing one free pass. The only blemish on his evening was a solo homer off the bat of Joey Votto in the first inning. Hudson now sports a 1.50 ERA on the spring and looks ready to take his turn in the Giants rotation when the regular season opens.
Mar 21 - 2:44 PM

Tim Hudson struggled with his command in his Cactus League start against the Diamondbacks on Sunday, allowing three hits and a pair of walks over 1 1/3 innings.

The 39-year-old hurler struck out one. The plan had been for Hudson to make it through two innings, but an elevated pitch count didn't allow him to get to that goal. Entering the final season of his big league career, Hudson still has value as a late-round rotation option in fantasy leagues.
