2013 After a season spent torturing White Sox fans with what might have been, Hudson traveled a rocky road in 2012 that began when a shoulder impingement shelved him after just three April starts. His summer return was short-lived, and he was claimed by the operating table after 45 unmerciful innings when his ulnar collateral ligament gave way and Tommy John called for a surgical consult. In the aftermath of the injury, Hudson was quoted as saying, "With my arm action, I just kind of figured it came with the territory," a frightening admission for a player who carries the weight of a future rotation anchor on his right arm. The D-Backs must hope that Hudson can make the adjustments necessary to avoid a return trip under the knife.
2012 Any demerits Jerry DiPoto might have earned as a result of the Dan Haren deal were more than made up for by his Hudson heist. After easily outdoing Edwin Jackson down the stretch in 2010, Hudson turned in a strong full season as Arizona’s second starter, showing even better control than Ian Kennedy by walking just 5.4 percent of opposing batters, a top-10 figure among NL qualifiers. Not only that, he won a Silver Slugger Award (which must have made Micah Owings jealous) thanks to a .226 TAv (which must have made Melvin Mora, Sean Burroughs, and Geoff Blum jealous). Better performance with runners in scoring position might improve his ERA even further, since he suffered from one of the league’s lowest left-on-base rates last season.
2011 The Diamondbacks turned Max Scherzer into Edwin Jackson and Ian Kennedy, then sent Jackson to the White Sox for Hudson, netting two very solid starters with six years of team control apiece. Like Kennedy, Hudson possesses above-average command and control, but unlike his 89 mph teammate, calls upon heat in the 93-95 mph range. A 23-year-old starter producing 3.6 WARP in under 100 innings is someone to follow, but be aware that Hudson isn't known for having a plus-plus repertoire. The lack of a true out pitch and a deep arsenal stands in the way of his achieving acedom, but he is off to an auspicious start.
2010 The minor leagues' breakout pitcher of the year, Hudson began 2009 as a relatively nondescript fifth-rounder out of Old Dominion, but he finished it in the big leagues, pitching at every full-season stop along the way. Hudson's command and control were always quite good, but some mechanical tweaks found him suddenly sitting at 93-95 mph with his fastball, changing him from afterthought into Cinderella. There's still work to be done, as his breaking ball can be inconsistent and he works up in the zone, but he should start 2010 in the majors, likely beginning the year as a reliever until a need in the rotation arises.

DateQuestionAnswer
2010-08-20 15:30:00 (link to chat)Scouts seemed to be pretty skeptical about Dan Hudson coming into the season. But he's tall, his fastball sits at about 93, and he's had a lot of success in the minors. What is it about him that doesn't give him #1 starter potential?
(Jake from San Francisco)
No. 1? How many No. 1s are there? 10? No. 1s have a plus-plus offering, usually two in fact. Hudson has none . . . and you are talking to a big fan of Dan Hudson. (Kevin Goldstein)
