Perfect in relief against Bucs
PSt. Louis Cardinals
August 5, 2018
Hudson (2-0) was credited with the win in Saturday's 8-4 victory over the Pirates, throwing three perfect innings of relief and striking out one.
ANALYSIS
Taking over from Austin Gomber to begin the fifth inning, Hudson breezed through the Pirates' lineup in 28 pitches (22 strikes). The rookie has two wins in four relief appearances and has yet to give up a run, potentially putting Hudson in line to move into the rotation if Gomber struggles or another St. Louis starting pitcher gets hurt.

2017 Fantasy Outlook
Hudson has a huge arm and was a starter at Mississippi State, where he showed enough improvement with his command to warrant a slightly over-slot $2 million bonus from the Cardinals when he slid to them at No. 34 in the draft. He possesses a mid-90s fastball, wipeout slider and emerging curveball and changeup. He is at his best when inducing groundballs. Hudson pitched just 13.1 innings across stops at rookie ball and High-A Palm Beach following the draft due to a heavy workload in his last season in the SEC. On the plus side, Hudson allowed just one earned run and fanned 19 batters over that span. On the downside, he walked seven batters in 9.1 innings at High-A. Though the sample size is small, the numbers present a microcosm of Hudson's profile: Big arm, massive strikeout potential, questionable command. The 6-foot-5, 215-pound righty could be ready for Double-A early in 2017, and if he can show improved command, he could cruise through the upper levels, profiling as a future No. 3 starter in the big leagues.
