Tim Hudson gave up five runs in 6 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Rockies.
This probably seals Hudson's fate; he's likely to go on the DL for two or three weeks to help make room for the returning Jake Peavy and Matt Cain in the San Francisco rotation. His ERA stands at 4.68, so a break couldn't hurt. Jun 27 - 1:56 AM

The Giants could place Tim Hudson (ankle) on the disabled list when Jake Peavy (back) and Matt Cain (elbow) return.

Hudson had surgery on his right ankle back in January and he still has to receive treatment on it every day. The ankle isn't keeping him from making his starts at the moment, but it makes sense to give him some extra rest now with the Giants having extra rotation options. Hudson remains in line to start on Friday versus the Rockies but might be placed on the DL next week.

Tim Hudson picked up the win and improved to 5-6 after holding the Dodgers to two runs over 6 1/3 innings on Saturday.

Hudson put in a reliably veteran start against the Dodgers, scattering six hits while striking out three and walking two. Things started out poorly, as he served up back-to-back homers to Joc Pederson and Justin Turner in the first inning, but those two runs would be the only to ones to cross the plate for the Dodgers in the entire contest. While Hudson will occasionally show flashes of his youth, his 4.52 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 43/21 K/BB ratio in 85 2/3 innings are less than encouraging. He'll try to build off this solid start when in a home outing against the Rockies next time he takes the mound.

Tim Hudson gave up three runs in five-plus innings, taking the loss on Monday facing the Mariners.

The Mariners used three singles to push across two runs in the fifth inning, bringing their lead to 3-0. Hudson started the sixth, but allowed a single and a walk to begin the frame and was then relieved by Yusmeiro Petit, who escaped trouble on Hudson's behalf. Hudson allowed eight hits and a walk while striking out three. His troublesome season continues, now with a 4.65 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP, and a 40/19 K/BB ratio over 79 1/3 innings. The veteran will have to deal with the Dodgers in a road start next.

Tim Hudson wasn't sharp, giving up four runs in five innings, but escaped with the win on Wednesday against the Mets.

The Giants erased Hudson's 4-2 deficit with a five-run sixth inning. The right-hander took the mound to begin the sixth, but gave up a leadoff double and was lifted from the game. He gave up eight hits, walked two, and struck out one. Hudson has put together a few good starts here and there, but has mostly been mediocre as reflected by his 4.60 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, and 37/18 K/BB ratio over 75 1/3 innings. He'll attempt to rebound next week at home against the Mariners.
Jun 10 - 10:46 PM

Tim Hudson allowed two earned runs in seven innings Wednesday in the Giants' loss to the Pirates.

Hudson pitched well enough to deserve a victory, striking out six Pittsburgh hitters and walking just one, but the San Francisco bullpen let him down in a rough eighth and ninth. Hudson now stands 3-5 with a 4.41 ERA, 1.28 WHIP, and 36/16 K/BB ratio in 69 1/3 innings this season. He'll take on the Mets on the road next week.
Jun 3 - 6:48 PM

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.
