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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Jan 6 - 4:35 PM

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.
