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.

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.

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.

Diamondbacks non-tendered RHP Daniel Hudson.

The D'Backs have been working on a contract with Hudson but obviously have been unable to agree to terms to this point.'s Ben Nicholson-Smith says the two sides could still work something out, though. The right-hander will miss most of 2014 while recovering from Tommy John surgery, but he's arbitration-eligible for the first time this winter and could make for a sneaky investment for someone.

The Diamondbacks and Daniel Hudson are discussing a contract that would avoid salary arbitration, Steve Gilbert of is hearing.

Hudson is rehabbing from his second Tommy John surgery that's limited him to just nine starts since the beginning of 2012 and will keep him out for most of 2014. The team would like to agree to a figure with the arbitration-eligible right-hander by Monday. Otherwise, he may become a free agent.
