Tim Hudson was placed on the disabled list today, and Jake Peavy called up from Sacramento, Hudson has been a hot and cold starter this season, and has been having problems dealing with a right shoulder strain. This move allowed the room for Peavy to rejoin the club.

Fantasy Impact: Hudson has a 5-7 record on the season with a 4.68 ERA. He has just 49 strikeouts in 92.1 innings. Hudson being 39-years old, and will be 40 on July 14th, has had a solid career, but at this time, he should not be considered more than a streaming pitcher or a very deep leaguer.


Tim Hudson couldn't make it through the sixth inning after giving up eight hits, three earned runs, one walk and just three strikeouts. He pitched to two batters in the sixth but couldn't retire any of them. He finished with throwing only 85 pitches 55 of them strikes.

Fantasy Impact: Tim Hudson hasn't done well over the last two games, even though he picked up the victory against the Mets on June 10th. In the last two contests, he has only pitched a total of eight innings, giving up 16 hits, seven earned runs, three walks and only four strikeouts. His season ERA 4.65, 40 strikeouts in 79.1 innings and is 4-6. If you own him and need room for your lineup it may be time to think of cutting him loose.

It wasn't the best outing for Tim Hudson as he pitched five full innings and gave up 8 hits and four runs while striking out one.

Fantasy Impact: This was his worst outing in two games, as Tim Hudson only gave up three earned runs in total. Hudson is a good pitcher for certain situations, mostly when those situations find him at ATT Park.

Tim Hudson pitches well in loss

Tim Hudson gave up two earned runs in 7.0 innings pitched, striking out six and walking one.

Fantasy Impact: Hudson pitched well enough to win on most days, but earned the loss. The bullpen did him no favors, giving up three runs in two innings pitched. The strikeouts are unusual for Hudson, but he is worth streaming when he has a good matchup at AT&T Park.

Tim Hudson allowed eight earned runs on six hits in only 3 2/3 innings against the Rockies on Sunday. He also walked two and struckout one in the short outing.

Fantasy Impact: Hudson was coming off a solid effort against the Dodgers, but was unable to find any success on Sunday, as the Rockies tore him apart to the tune of eight runs. Seven of those eight runs were given up in the fourth inning, including a three-run homer. It was the third time in nine starts that Hudson has given up five or more runs, as he just can't find last year's magic. Only deep AL-Only owners should consider him at this point.

Tim Hudson is still going strong at his age. Tonight against a good hitting lineup in the Los Angeles Dodgers he went 6.1 innings without giving up a single run. He gave up five hits and walked two, he also struck out two.

Fantasy Impact: Tim Hudson has pitched well overall on the season. His 4.57 ERA has more to do with his two poor outings than his five solid ones. In those five he pitched 33.2 innings and gave up only 12 earned runs. After tonight, he will have pitched 40 innings only giving up 12 runs for a 2.70 ERA. He also earned his second win of the season and is now 2-3.

Tim Hudson blanks the Dodgers

Tim Hudson went 6.1 innings Tuesday, scattering five hits and two walks. He struck out two and allowed no runs in victory.

Fantasy Impact: This lowered Hudson's ERA to 4.01 on the year. He has been inconsistent, but this performance against a hot Los Angeles squad shows he may be emerging as a spot-starter in spacious AT&T Park.

Tim Hudson rocked again

Tim Hudson allowed six runs on fifteen hits in 6.2 innings pitched Thursday versus Miami.

Fantasy Impact: This is the second consecutive bad appearance for Hudson. He is quickly losing fantasy relevance in mixed leagues. In deeper and NL-only leagues, he should be benched for the time being, but shouldn't be outright dropped. In shallow mixed leagues he shouldn't have been on your roster in the first place.

Tim Hudson shellacked by DBacks

Tim Hudson made it through five innings, but yielded five earned runs while striking out five and walking two.

Fantasy Impact: Hudson started the day behind the 8-ball as he yielded a two-run home run to Giants killer Paul Goldschmidt. The Giants are struggling from top to bottom and Hudson is not immune.

Tim Hudson went 6.1 innings & allowed five hits, walked five batters, and struck out one in his no decision Thursday.

Fantasy Impact: Hudson's five walks are a major concern, as he regularly goes entire months yielding that amount. The last time he walked five was June 19, 2012. His line needed help from reliever Jeremy Affeldt, who induced a double play to clear the runners Hudson left him. Hudson thrives in pitcher-friendly environments like PetCo Park, and he will take on the Rockies at AT&T Park next week.

Tim Hudson gave up 3 runs in 6 innings Wednesday vs. the Rockies, with two of them coming off the bat of Troy Tulowitzki.

Fantasy Impact: Hudson gave up Tulo's two-run bomb, but other than that was very solid. He allowed six hits, struck out three and walked none. Hudson has already declared this is his last ride through the MLB. He performed very well at home in 2014, but struggled on the road. Going into 2015, he's an NL-only option or a streamer in mixed leagues while at home.

Fantasy Impact: Hudson also said that he considered going out on top, mentally retiring and un-retiring on the flight home from Game Seven of the World Series last year. Hudson, 39, has never been a big strikeout guy, but if he can keep up his 3.57 ERA and 1.23 WHIP from last season, he should be a viable streaming option in mixed leagues, or a back of rotation player in NL-only leagues.

Fantasy Impact: The Giants are hoping that Hudson, 39, will be ready for opening day. The uncertainty surrounding his availability will very likely suppress his value on draft day. He posted a very serviceable 3.57 ERA and 1.23 WHIP in 31 starts in his first season with the Giants in 2014, but injury and age may finally be catching up to Hudson, who is likely in his final season.


One more year for Tim Hudson

Tim Hudson says next season will probably be his last. The 39-year-old right-hander reached and won the World Series in his 16th major league season. He said Tuesday he plans to fulfill his $23 million, two-year contract with the Giants, then possibly call it a career. (Source: ESPN)

Fantasy Impact: Hudson was an all-star candidate in the first half of the 2014 season, but struggled down the line with an injury. At 39 years old, it's hard to know what Hudson can bring to the table after a long World Series winning season. It's fully possible that he has a similar first half in 2015, but to expect a full season of quality starts may be hard to believe. Draft Hudson with his age in mind.
