Tim Hudson posted an unremarkable start in Sunday's win over the A's, allowing three runs on seven hits over five innings.
Hudson struck out just one on the day. Two of the three runs against him scored in the fourth inning, when he allowed RBI singles to Brett Lawrie and Billy Butler. While he's still capable of posting workman-like starts from time-to-time, the overall numbers are unimpressive, as the veteran right-hander now holds a 4.80 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 53/26 K/BB ratio over 101 1/3 innings. He'll take to the road to face the Rangers in his next start as he tries to keep his ERA from creeping over 5.00. Jul 26 - 7:38 PM

Tim Hudson was ineffective in his return to the mound, serving up three runs in four innings en route to a loss against the Padres on Monday.

Hudson spent a little under a month on the disabled list due to a strained right shoulder. He gave up five hits, walked four, and struck out three in the effort. Matt Kemp did most of the damage, clubbing a two-run home run in the third inning. Hudson has a 4.76 ERA on the year with a 1.41 WHIP and a 52/26 K/BB ratio in 96 1/3 innings. He'll look for better results when he toes the rubber against the Athletics at home over the weekend.

Giants activated RHP Tim Hudson from the 15-day disabled list.

Hudson will make his return to the rotation on Monday in San Diego. He missed nearly a month of action with a strained right shoulder and had put up a pedestrian 4.68 ERA and 1.38 WHIP over 15 starts before the injury. Jean Machi was designated for assignment to clear room on the roster.
Jul 20 - 8:29 PM

Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Sunday that Tim Hudson (shoulder) will rejoin the club's rotation after the All-Star break.

Bochy didn't say who he would bump from the rotation, but Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle suspects that it will be Ryan Vogelsong. Despite his history, Hudson's leash doesn't figure to be long given the 4.68 ERA he has in 15 starts this season. The Giants are said to be looking to trade for a starter this month.
Jul 12 - 2:59 PM

Tim Hudson (shoulder) threw a bullpen session on Tuesday.

It's his first time throwing from a mound since he was placed on the disabled list last week with a shoulder strain. When Hudson will be ready to return isn't known, and he might not have a rotation spot waiting for him when it happens.
Jul 7 - 7:58 PM

Giants placed RHP Tim Hudson on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to June 27, with a right shoulder strain.

Originally the thought was that Hudson would go on the DL because of his surgically-repaired right ankle that's still not quite healed yet. It appears, though, that he's also nursing a shoulder issue. It's unclear at this time how long he'll be sidelined.
Jul 3 - 1:56 PM

Tim Hudson has been excused from the Giants for a week for personal reasons.

There isn't much information available at this time. Hudson gave up five runs in 6 2/3 innings to the Rockies on Friday and has a rough 4.68 ERA (76 ERA+) this season.
Jul 1 - 5:53 PM

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.
Jun 24 - 10:12 AM

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.
Jun 20 - 10:20 PM

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.
Jun 16 - 1:23 AM

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.
