Pitch Type Present Grade Future Grade Sitting Velocity Peak Velocity Report
FB 20 30 83-87 89 Two-seamer, tail and sink, quality plane; average movement, fringe command, struggles to hit target in any quadrant; velocity dropped to 83-85 mph by the third inning
CB 20 20 74-76 76 12-7 action, short break, poor command, below-average movement; spiked the pitch occasionally, could not reliably use to throw strikes; did not generate any whiffs, poor projection
CH 30 40 79-80 80 Late sinking action, fringe command, misses down, arm slows
Overall

Chicago's third-rounder in 2015, Hudson lacks the delivery, control, and impact offerings to project as a starter. His frame and peak velocity both suggest a future role at a higher level, perhaps out of the bullpen, but he has a long developmental path ahead of him to reach the upper minors.
