The Diamondbacks plan to use Daniel Hudson as a reliever next season.

It's possible that he'll eventually be moved back into the rotation at some point in the year, and being used as a starter remains the goal over the long-term. However, the thinking is that in his first full year back from a second Tommy John surgery, Hudson would be best off easing back into things in relief. He allowed four runs over 2 2/3 innings this month before being shut down but showed good stuff with a fastball that touched 97 mph.
Sep 19 - 8:58 AM

The Diamondbacks have decided to shut Daniel Hudson down for the season.

Hudson isn't injured, but rather the club just doesn't want to push him after he made the long trek back from a second Tommy John surgery. The righty allowed four runs over 2 2/3 relief innings across three appearances. Hudson will compete for a rotation spot in spring training.
Sep 18 - 7:00 PM

Diamondbacks activated RHP Daniel Hudson from the 60-day disabled list.

Hudson is finally back in the majors after spending the last couple of years rehabbing from two Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgeries. He'll pitch in long relief.
Sep 1 - 12:07 PM

Daniel Hudson (elbow) will join the Diamondbacks as a reliever at some point early next week.

Hudson has undergone two Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgeries since early 2012 but is finally back to full health. He looked sharp on his most recent minor league rehab assignment and should do well in a long relief role for Arizona. It's a nice comeback story.
Aug 30 - 8:17 PM

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Tuesday that Daniel Hudson (elbow) will make a final rehab appearances with Triple-A Reno on Friday before joining the big club "shortly thereafter."

Working his way back from a second Tommy John surgery, Hudson has allowed one run while striking out six over his first five rehab innings. The D'Backs still view him as a starter over the long haul but have decided it would be best to bring him back this season as a reliever.
Aug 27 - 9:20 AM

Daniel Hudson (elbow) is scheduled to begin a minor league rehab assignment in the Arizona League on Tuesday.

The veteran right-hander is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, and could work out of the bullpen initially once he is cleared to rejoin the Diamondbacks. He isn't worth stashing in redraft fantasy leagues.
Aug 1 - 8:13 PM

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Tuesday that Daniel Hudson (elbow) probably won't begin a rehab assignment until August.

He'll then be activated at some point in September if all goes well. Working his way back from Tommy John surgery, Hudson will return as a reliever this season before presumably stretching back out as a starter next spring.
Jun 24 - 7:10 PM

Diamondbacks transferred RHP Daniel Hudson from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move was made in order to clear room on the 40-man roster for the addition of Matt Stites. Working his way back from Tommy John surgery, Hudson remains hopeful of returning late this season as a reliever.
Jun 20 - 8:48 AM

Daniel Hudson (elbow) threw sliders during a bullpen session Tuesday.

It's the first time since last year's Tommy John surgery that he's been allowed to throw breaking balls. Hudson is expected to need 4-5 more weeks of bullpen sessions before proceeding to the next step. The right-hander isn't expected back until the second half and will return as a reliever.
May 13 - 7:32 PM

The Diamondbacks plan on using Daniel Hudson as a reliever when he's activated from the disabled list.

Hudson is still a few months away from returning, but when he does he'll be given the Kris Medlen treatment by the team. Hudson underwent his second Tommy John surgery last year.
Apr 2 - 7:08 PM

Diamondbacks purchased the contract of RHP Daniel Hudson from Triple-A Reno; placed him on 15-day disabled list with a right elbow injury.

The 26-year-old hurler is working his way back from Tommy John surgery and isn't expected to be an option for the Diamondbacks until late in the 2014 season.
Mar 30 - 4:11 PM

Diamondbacks re-signed RHP Daniel Hudson to a minor league contract.

The terms of the deal are not yet known. Hudson doesn't get the major league contract he was wanting, but he'll get to remain in the same organization as he rehabs from a second Tommy John surgery. The right-hander could possibly make it back during the second half, but nothing much should be expected from him until 2015.

The Diamondbacks are close to re-signing Daniel Hudson.

Hudson was non-tendered by the D'Backs earlier this month, but it sounds like he'll stick around. The righty will miss most, if not all, of 2014 while recovering from his second Tommy John surgery but could wind up being a bargain if he eventually returns healthy. The sticking point in negotiations had been that Hudson wanted a spot on the 40-man roster.
Fri, Dec 13, 2013 08:57:00 AM

Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers expressed optimism Tuesday that the club will be able to re-sign Daniel Hudson.

Hudson was non-tendered by the Diamondbacks on Monday, but the two sides were close in negotiations and simply ran out of time before the 11:59 p.m. ET deadline. The 26-year-old is now free to sign elsewhere, but Towers believes something will get done. Hudson is expected to miss most of 2014 while recovering from his second Tommy John surgery. He hasn't thrown a pitch in the majors since June 26, 2012.
