Daniel Hudson expected back in June or July


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/3/2014) Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said pitcher Daniel Hudson, who is recovering from his second Tommy John surgery since 2012, is expected back around June or July.

"He threw his second or third bullpen the other day and was just awesome," Gibson said, per MLB.com. "We're looking at right around a July return, something like that, either June or July if everything goes good."

When he does return, it appears Hudson will be converted to a reliever.

"I think we would not do that," Gibson said this week about Hudson returning as a starter. "It probably would be more in the bullpen."


Daniel Hudson to return as reliever later this season


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/2/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher Daniel Hudson will return to the team as a reliever when he's fully recovered from Tommy John surgery later this season, FOXSportsArizona.com reports.

It's the same plan that the Braves used when Kris Medlen returned in the middle of the 2012 season. Hudson look "awesome" throwing off a mound on Tuesday and will continue to rehab from multiple surgeries to his pitching elbow.


Daniel Hudson able to throw on flat ground Wednesday


by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com
(3/5/2014) Diamondbacks pitcher Daniel Hudson was able to throw on flat ground Wednesday. 

Hudson is recovering from a second Tommy John surgery. He was able to throw 15 pitches on flat ground. It's the first step in Hudson returning to the mound. He posted a 3.49 ERA in 222 innings in his breakout 2011 season. 


Daniel Hudson signs minor-league deal


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(12/13/2013) The Diamondbacks have re-signed pitcher Daniel Hudson to a minor league contract on Friday, according to ESPN. Hudson was unable to pitch last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He posted a 3.49 ERA in 222 innings in 2011, his last full season. 

Despite non-tender, Diamondbacks want Daniel Hudson back


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(12/3/2013) The Diamondbacks non-tendered pitcher Daniel Hudson Monday, but intend to continue negotiating to try and bring the 26-year-old back, according to a statement by general manager Kevin Towers.

Hudson was unable to pitch last season while recovering from Tommy John surgery. He posted a 3.49 ERA in 222 innings in 2011, his last full season. 


Diamondbacks, Daniel Hudson in contract talks


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11/27/2013) The Diamondbacks and pitcher Daniel Hudson are in contract discussions, MLB.com reports. The two sides would avoid arbitration if they could agree to a deal, and the team has until Monday to decide whether to offer the pitcher arbitration.

"Hopefully we'll get something done in the next few days or over the weekend," Hudson said. "Obviously my wife and I have our roots set down here. We'd like to be here for the long run, and I'd like to have a long career with the Diamondbacks."

Hudson is recovering from multiple Tommy John surgeries, last pitching in 2012 before re-injuring his elbow in June. He's planning to wait until about six months after the most recent surgery to begin throwing.


Diamondbacks want to bring back Daniel Hudson


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(9/11/2013) The Diamondbacks want to bring back injured starting pitcher Daniel Hudson next season, the Arizona Republic reports.

Hudson has not and will not pitch this year due to multiple Tommy John surgeries. He is arbitration eligible for the first time in 2014, and so the Diamondbacks will likely have to get creative to keep him. The club could use a contract with incentives for games played or a multi-year deal to get it done. It's unclear at this point if Hudson will even be able to pitch in 2014 due to his recovery.


Daniel Hudson suffers another tear to UCL


by Jack Moore | CBSSports.com
(6/7/2013) Diamondbacks starter Daniel Hudson suffered a second tear to his UCL during his first rehab start June 4, MLB.com reports. Treatment for Hudson will be determined after an evaluation with Dr. James Andrews, but the tear likely indicates the end of his 2013 season. Hudson was working his way back from Tommy John surgery to repair the same UCL.

Daniel Hudson's timeline slows down


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(6/5/2013) For a while, it seemed like Diamondbacks starting pitcher Daniel Hudson was on the fast track to return from Tommy John surgery, as he had managed to avoid any setbacks. That is, until Tuesday, when his rehab debut at Double-A Mobile was cut short due to stiffness in his surgically repaired right elbow.

Despite the setback, manager Kirk Gibson does not seem concerned about his long-term prognosis. He admits that it could delay Hudson's return to the rotation, which looked to be fast approaching prior to Tuesday.

"He was sore," Gibson told MLB.com. "I'm taking an optimistic view on that. He hasn't had any setbacks at all since he's been doing his rehab. I'm confident it'll work out fine. Does this slow him down a little bit? It probably does, yes."

Hudson is scheduled to see Dr. Michael Lee Thursday to determine if there are any structural issues that led to the stiffness in his start.

Hudson is headed back to Phoenix to have his arm examined by team physician Dr. Michael Lee.

by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com

Daniel Hudson to make at least two starts in minors

"We'll see how it goes," Towers told the Arizona Republic.

Towers did say he expects Hudson to begin his minor-league rehabilitation assignment Tuesday, June 4, at Double-A Mobile.

Daniel Hudson set to pitch Wednesday


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/25/2013) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Daniel Hudson, who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, will pitch in another extended spring game Wednesday.

Barring any setbacks, Hudson could be nearing the start of his minor-league rehab assignment, according to MLB.com. He is expected to return at some point near the All-Star break.

"Just depends on how I bounce back," Hudson said. "It's just day by day at this point. Just see how I feel and go from there. There's really no set schedule, except for when I'm supposed to throw. And if I need an extra day, we'll take an extra day, or if I need an extra five days, we'll take an extra five days."

Daniel Hudson pleased after extended spring outing


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(5/17/2013) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Daniel Hudson, who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, pitched in an extended spring training game Friday. It was the first time he has faced non-Arizona hitters since his procedure.

Hudson threw four innings as he struck out one and allowed two runs against minor-league players from the Angels organization.

"It went well," Hudson said. "Nothing out of the ordinary. I got a bunch of ground balls and I got out of the heat as quick as I could. Obviously, I'd thrown a couple of [simulated] games and a live [batting practice], so I've been facing hitters, but once you get out there against someone in a different colored uniform, different adrenaline and emotions start kicking in. Felt like I was getting a lot closer, and the light at the end of the tunnel is getting a little bit brighter now."

Hudson is expected to throw a bullpen session Monday. Barring any setbacks, he will pitch five innings in an extended spring training game Thursday.


Daniel Hudson looking at late June return?


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(5/14/2013) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Daniel Hudson, who is working his way back from Tommy John surgery, is expected to throw 50-55 pitches when he throws in an extended spring game Friday, according to The Arizona Republic. Hudson threw 46 pitches in a simulated game Saturday.

Daniel Hudson making steady progress

Daniel Hudson not the most exciting stash


by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer
(5/7/2013) In my latest Reality Check, I looked at DL players and ranked the 25 most worth owning in Fantasy. Predictably, the comments section became a list of who I left out, but one name in particular caught my attention: Daniel Hudson.

To be honest, I didn't give the Diamondbacks' right-hander much thought. At last check, he's aiming to come back in early July, which puts him not far behind fellow Tommy John victim Brandon Beachy, but I'm just not as excited about the prospect of him returning.

For one thing, we still don't know how good he can be. Beachy was looking like an ace at the time of his injury last year while Hudson was getting pummeled, and while Hudson's 2011 season was significantly better, he allowed nearly a hit per inning even then.

Obviously, if I had a free DL spot, I'd stash Hudson, but I'm not so convinced he'll make a big impact right away that I'm willing to invest a bench spot in him outside of NL-only leagues.


Daniel Hudson to throw every fifth day


by Ed Gauna | CBSSports.com
(4/29/2013) Diamondbacks pitcher Daniel Hudson threw two innings of live batting practice on Monday as he continues to recover from Tommy John surgery, MLB.com reports. Manager Kirk Gibson said the right-hander threw around 55 pitches and Gibson was impressed with what he saw.

"He looked good," Gibson said. "He was overthrowing in the first inning but he came back in the second and had much better location. Overall, it was good."

Hudson will begin throwing every fifth day with bullpen sessions scheduled in between.

"I think he's ready in his mind to progress into games and compete," Gibson said. "We'll see how it goes now that he's getting into more innings and competing in games; he might get sore. We'll try to get him into what he would be doing if he were with us."

Daniel Hudson eyeing pre-All-Star break return


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2013) Diamondbacks pitcher Daniel Hudson, on the 60-day disabled list recovering from Tommy John surgery, had a total-body workout, general manager Kevin Towers told MLB.com Saturday.

Hudson has been throwing live batting practice, including a 20-pitch outing at extended spring training Tuesday. He is expected to have the day off Sunday and resume his throwing program Monday.

"He feels good," manager Kirk Gibson said. "The best-case scenario [for his return] would be pre-All-Star break."

Daniel Hudson to face live batters soon


by Jeff Lippman | CBSSports.com
(4/9/2013) Diamondbacks injured hurler Daniel Hudson is expected to throw live batting practice on April 16 for the first time since he underwent Tommy John surgery last year, MLB.com reports. 

Hudson threw a bullpen session Tuesday and is scheduled for another Friday. If he comes through that OK, live batters are the next step. 

"He's throwing the ball real well," Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said. Arizona expects to have Hudson back some time after the All-Star break. 


Daniel Hudson pleased with bullpen session


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/27/2013) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Daniel Hudson, who is on the 60-day disabled list recovering from Tommy John surgery, was pleased with his bullpen session Tuesday, according to The Arizona Republic.

"It felt good," Hudson said after throwing 30 pitches off a practice mound. “Surprisingly good. I might have been a little tentative at first, but once I got that feeling back in me, I just kind of took it and ran with it. It felt like there was a little bit of life to it. I threw a lot of strikes, which was good, as well, and definitely surprising. I wasn’t expecting anywhere near what I did. It was a step in the right direction.

General manager Kevin Towers said he was impressed with Hudson's command.

"Delivery looked good," Towers said. "Balance looked good. Threw strikes. Was free and easy. It was coming out of his hand well."


Daniel Hudson completes first 'pen session


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/26/2013) Diamondbacks pitcher Daniel Hudson, who is on the 60-day disabled list, pitched his first bullpen session Tuesday as he continues to work his way back from Tommy John surgery. Hudson still remains on track to join the team around the All-Star break.

Hudson still targeting break


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(2/18/2013) The Diamondbacks placed starting pitcher Daniel Hudson on the 60-day disabled list Monday while the right-hander continues his recovery from Tommy John surgery. Hudson underwent reconstructive elbow surgery last July and is not expected to rejoin Arizona until the All-Star break. "Obviously, you don't want to rush it because it's such a major injury, but I would say around the All-Star break either right before or right after would be pretty realistic," Hudson told MLB.com about his possible return last month.
