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.

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.
Mar 15 - 9:27 PM

Tim Hudson made his Cactus League debut on Wednesday versus the Brewers, tossing a scoreless first inning.

Hudson is working his way back from ankle surgery in January. He was able to work around a one-out double and a walk to escape the first inning unscathed. Hudson, 39, plans to retire after the season but still remains a solid option towards the ends of drafts as evidenced by last season's 3.57 ERA and 120/34 K/BB ratio in 189 1/3 innings.
Mar 11 - 7:33 PM

Tim Hudson (ankle) will make his Cactus League debut on Wednesday against the Brewers.

The 39-year-old hurler underwent surgery in January to remove bone spurs from his right ankle. He has had no difficulty throwing in recent days and still has plenty of time to get himself ready for the start of the regular season. He remains a strong late-round option to bolster ratios.
Mar 8 - 7:15 PM

Tim Hudson (ankle) could make his first Cactus League start Tuesday.

Hudson has been progressing in his recovery from January right ankle surgery to remove bone spurs. The 39-year-old will throw one more session of live batting practice prior to making a start. Assuming he makes steady progress upon returning, Hudson should still be ready for Opening Day.
Mar 7 - 6:37 PM

Tim Hudson (ankle) expects to pitch in a game around March 11.

Hudson underwent surgery in early January to remove bone spurs from his right ankle, but he threw to hitters Thursday morning with no issues. He can't afford any setbacks, but there's still time for him to get ready for the start of the season.
Mar 5 - 5:16 PM

Tim Hudson (ankle) threw to hitters Thursday morning in Giants camp and reported no issues.

He is one step closer to his 2015 Cactus League debut. Hudson underwent surgery in early January to remove bone spurs from his right ankle and is somewhat questionable for the beginning of the regular season. If he's not ready -- and the Giants won't rush him -- Ryan Vogelsong and Yusmeiro Petit are available as rotation insurance.
Mar 5 - 2:28 PM

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.
Feb 18 - 12:57 PM

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.
