Tim Hudson (shoulder) is expected to return by September 1, Giants manager Bruce Bochy said Wednesday.
Hudson has been on a rehab stint since August 14. With Matt Cain struggling, Hudson has a decent chance of replacing Cain in the rotation upon his return. Of course, Hudson hasn't exactly been a godsend, either, going 6-8 with a 4.80 ERA and 1.41 WHIP when healthy. Aug 26 - 9:24 PM

Tim Hudson (shoulder) allowed just one hit over 2 2/3 scoreless innings in his minor league rehab appearance with Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.

Hudson is likely to need at least another appearance or two before he's ready to rejoin the Giants. He's expected to function as a long reliever, but could push for a spot in the rotation if Matt Cain continues to struggle.

Tim Hudson (shoulder) is expected to begin a rehab assignment with Triple-A Sacramento on Friday.

He's slated to throw two innings in his first rehab outing. The Giants really don't have a need for Hudson as long as Mike Leake's hamstring injury doesn't linger, so it wouldn't be a surprise to see them wait until September to activate him and then use him as a long reliever.
Aug 12 - 2:41 PM

Tim Hudson (shoulder) threw a bullpen session Tuesday.

Hudson has been on the disabled list a couple times since late June with a shoulder injury, although it's debatable as to whether he's really hurt. There's no timetable for his return.
Aug 11 - 8:18 PM

Giants placed RHP Tim Hudson on the disabled list with a right shoulder injury.

Hudson spent time on the DL earlier this season with a shoulder ailment, although both times it's looked like a phantom injury. There's no longer a spot in the rotation for the veteran following the acquisition of Mike Leake.
Jul 31 - 5:59 PM

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.
Jul 21 - 1:32 AM

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.
