RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2015

Subscribe now to see our 2015 outlook.

2014

In a heartbreaking turn of events, Hudson battled back from Tommy John surgery halfway through the 2013 campaign only to suffer a re-injury on the same elbow, forcing a second procedure. He is likely sidelined the vast majority of the 2014 season as a result of the injury, but the D-Backs re-signed him to continue his rehab efforts as a member of their organization during the offseason.

2013

After three starts, Hudson landed on the 15-day disabled list with a shoulder impingement. He was able to return in late May, but he lost velocity on his fastball and was removed from an outing in June with tightness in his right forearm. Further tests revealed a torn UCL in Hudson's pitching elbow, and he was forced to undergo Tommy John surgery in July. His recovery was on schedule in the offseason and Hudson is expected to return to the rotation at some point around the All-Star break.

2012

Just as Hudson's 2010 FIP (3.28) suggested, he wasn't going to repeat the 2.45 ERA from his 14-start taste of the big leagues. Still, the results were encouraging, as Hudson racked up 222 innings and managed to deliver a useful number of strikeouts because of the high innings count. There's reason to believe that he might increase his strikeout rate given his career 10.6 K/9IP in the minors and an above-average 9.9 percent swinging strike percentage in 2011. He also displayed encouraging signs of growth with his walk rate and groundball rate, as both suggest that he has the tools to succeed as a No. 2 starter despite making half of his starts at hitter-friendly Chase Field.

2011

In one of the best cost-cutting moves of the trade deadline, the D-Backs acquired Hudson from the White Sox for Edwin Jackson. He didn't disappoint with the move to the National League, going 7-1 with a 70:16 K:BB over 79.2 innings after August 1 and looking the part of a legitimate No. 2 or No. 3 starter for the team's rebuilding rotation. After logging 188.2 innings between Triple-A and the majors last season, there is no workload restriction to be concerned about here. Hudson has three quality offerings, and is able to generate plenty of whiffs with both his fastball and changeup thanks to his arm slot and the resulting deception in his delivery. Although he may not have the ceiling of a future ace, Hudson is polished and should carry a reasonable price tag on draft day.

2010

Hudson pitched at five different levels in 2009, making his way to the majors all the way from Low-A Kannapolis. He averaged 10.1 K/9IP over his 147.1 minor league innings, and he's averaged more than nine at each minor league level. He has three plus pitches, and his fastball is effective in the low-to-mid 90s. The White Sox start the 2010 season with six other viable major league pitchers, so a few injuries stand in his way for a starting spot with the White Sox this season, but he should be in the rotation equation in 2011.
