Tim Hudson struggled in a losing effort against the Dodgers on Thursday, allowing three runs on three hits over 2 1/3 innings.
Hudson walked two and struck out one on the day. It's a tough way for the veteran hurler to end his career, getting knocked around in each of his final two starts. He finishes the season 8-9 with a 4.44 ERA, 1.38 WHIP and 64/37 K/BB ratio in 123 2/3 innings. Oct 1 - 6:22 PM

Tim Hudson yielded three runs -- two earned -- over 1 1/3 innings Saturday in a no-decision against the A's.

Oakland starter Barry Zito also got knocked around in what became a shootout at Coliseum. San Francisco wound up winning 14-10 behind three homers from Jarrett Parker. It's not clear if Hudson, who's going to retire after the season, will make a start in the final week.
Sep 26 - 7:45 PM

Tim Hudson pitched like a younger man in Sunday's win over the Diamondbacks, yielding just four hits over six shutout innings.

Hudson's been dealing with a bout of hip soreness of late, but he looked just swell in blanking the Diamondbacks on Sunday. The veteran right-hander surrendered three singles and a double. He also struck out three and walked three in the strong outing. For the season, he holds a 4.20 ERA and 1.35 WHIP. A road start against the A's shows next on his schedule.
Sep 20 - 7:05 PM

Tim Hudson (hip) is expected to make his regularly scheduled start on Sunday.

Hudson dealt with some hip soreness during Monday's start, but it's just something that pops up on him from time to time and he's not concerned. The veteran right-hander has allowed just two runs over 10 1/3 innings in his two starts since rejoining the rotation.
Sep 15 - 7:55 PM

Tim Hudson left Monday's start against the Reds with a hip injury.

It's not clear how serious the ailment might be, but Giants manager Bruce Bochy said it could affect Hudson's availability for his next scheduled start this weekend against the Diamondbacks. Given how late it is in the season, it's possible Hudson has made the final start of his career.
Sep 15 - 1:25 AM

Tim Hudson got a no-decision, holding the Reds to one run over 4 1/3 innings in Monday's win.

Hudson threw 70 pitches, working around three hits and three walks with one strikeout. Hudson allowed a double, a single, and a walk with one out in the fifth inning before departing, and reliever Javier Lopez issued a bases-loaded walk to force in one of Hudson's base runners. The right-hander has a 4.42 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP, and a 60/29 K/BB ratio over 114 innings in what will be his final season. He'll face the Diamondbacks at home next.
Sep 15 - 1:13 AM

Tim Hudson allowed only one run in six innings and also clubbed a solo home run to help the Giants take down the Diamondbacks on Tuesday.

Hudson relented his only run on a sacrifice fly in the fourth inning. That was an inning after he had belted a solo home run to go back-to-back with Gregor Blanco. The right-hander had homered once in three prior seasons, and he's the third Giants pitcher to homer this year, joining Madison Bumgarner and Ryan Vogelsong. On the pitching side of things, Hudson scattered four hits, walked none, and struck out four to pick up the win in his first start since July 26. He has a 4.51 ERA, a 1.36 WHIP, and a 59/26 K/BB ratio over 109 2/3 innings. The Giants' rotation is a bit foggy at the moment, but Hudson is on track to take on the Reds in a home start if things stay on schedule.
Sep 9 - 12:38 AM

Tim Hudson is scheduled to start Tuesday's game against the Diamondbacks.

The Giants rotation is in a bit of flux right now, as Matt Cain is expected to be activated from the disabled list on Thursday. Hudson himself was just activated from the DL last Tuesday. The veteran right-hander holds a 4.69 ERA and 1.39 WHIP in 103 2/3 innings. He should continue to see most of his work from the bullpen as a long reliever after this start.
Sep 7 - 7:25 PM

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

Hudson is expected to get one start this month but will be used mainly in long relief. He holds a 4.80 ERA and 1.41 WHIP on the season.
Sep 1 - 7:05 PM

The Giants plan to use Tim Hudson (shoulder) primarily as a reliever in September.

Manager Bruce Bochy did talk to Hudson about making at least one start, but it appears he'll be used mostly in a long relief role. Hudson holds a 4.80 ERA and 1.41 WHIP on the season.
Aug 31 - 9:00 PM

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.

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.
Aug 15 - 9:25 AM

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.
