  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Hopes to make Opening Day

    Hudson (knee) hopes to be ready for spring training next season, Matthew Moreno of reports.

    Hudson tore his ACL in late June, an injury which carries a lengthy recovery timeline. The veteran will avoid trying to push himself too much, and the Dodgers should be able to avoid rushing the 35-year-old given their typically strong bullpen depth, but it's still good to see that an Opening Day return remains a possibility. Hudson was having an excellent season at the time of the injury, cruising to a 2.22 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in 24.1 innings while saving five games, which convinced the team to pick up his 2023 option.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Team option picked up

    Hudson (knee) had his $6.5 million team option for the 2023 season picked up by the Dodgers on Thursday, Jeff Passan of reports.

    Hudson was dominant for the Dodgers early in the season, converting five of six save chances while picking up nine holds with a 2.22 ERA and 0.90 WHIP in 24.1 innings over 25 appearances. However, he sustained a torn ACL in late June and was unavailable for the second half in the year. The right-hander should factor into the team's late-relief plans once again in 2023 once he completes his recovery.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Shifts to 60-day IL

    Hudson (knee) was transferred to the 60-day injured list Thursday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Hudson was already ruled out for the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL last week, so it was only a matter of time before he moved to the 60-day IL. Ian Gibaut was claimed off waivers in a corresponding move.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Moves to injured list

    Hudson (knee) was diagnosed with a torn ACL and placed on the 15-day injured list Saturday, Eric Stephen of reports.

    The veteran right-hander suffered the injury during Friday's win over Atlanta, and he'll miss the rest of the season after the diagnosis of a torn ACL was confirmed. Hudson finishes 2022 with a 2.22 ERA, 0.90 WHIP and 30:5 K:BB across 24.1 innings, and it's unclear if he'll be healthy for spring training should he opt to return for a 14th MLB season.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Suffers ACL injury

    Hudson (knee) suffered an ACL injury during Friday's win over Atlanta, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    A full diagnosis won't be available until the right-hander is further evaluated, but the team fears it's a torn ACL and manager Dave Roberts said, "I don't see how it's not the end of [his] season." Hudson has been a key bullpen piece for the Dodgers this year with five saves and nine holds to go along with a 2.22 ERA and 30:5 K:BB, but it appears he'll now be sidelined for the rest of the campaign.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Leaves with injury

    Hudson was removed from Friday's game against Atlanta with an apparent left knee injury, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Hudson had his leg buckle 11 pitches into Friday's appearance when trying to field a groundball and was helped off the field by the training staff. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, but the veteran right-hander figures to be unavailable for at least a day or two regardless of the diagnosis.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Records eighth hold

    Hudson earned a hold against the Angels on Tuesday, striking out two batters over one perfect inning.

    Hudson pitched the top of the eighth frame with the Dodgers ahead 1-0 and set aside the Angels on 10 pitches (nine strikes). The right-hander has struck out exactly two batters in each of his past six outings, posting a 12:1 K:BB across 6.1 innings over that span. He's held the opposition scoreless in nine of his past 10 appearances.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Grabs fifth save

    Hudson earned a save after he pitched a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one hit while striking out two in Wednesday's 4-1 win over the White Sox.

    With Craig Kimbrel (personal) on the paternity list, Hudson was called upon to protect a three-run lead in the bottom of the ninth. He worked around a two-out single by Yasmani Grandal, getting Jake Burger to strike out to end the game and earn his fifth save of the season. Hudson has been very effective this season while operating as the primary set-up man to Kimbrel, producing a 1.86 ERA and 0.78 WHIP with 24 strikeouts over 19.1 innings while also recording seven holds and five saves, all over 19 appearances.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Notches fourth save

    Hudson saved Friday's 6-1 win against the Mets, allowing one hit with two strikeouts in 1.1 scoreless innings.

    Hudson entered a four-run game with two out and two on in the eighth inning and induced a Francisco Lindor groundout to neutralize the threat. Manager Dave Roberts opted to stay with the 35-year-old for the ninth, keeping the veteran righty in line for the save despite the Dodger win being by more than three runs. Hudson has now recorded saves in two of his last three appearances and has thrown 7.2 scoreless innings since consecutive losses on May 11 and 12.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Could see save chance Wednesday

    Hudson is likely to serve as the Dodgers' fill-in closer for any potential save situation Wednesday versus Pittsburgh since Craig Kimbrel is unavailable while addressing his mechanics, Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Hudson picked up a save during his previous appearance Saturday against the Diamondbacks, and he'll likely be called upon Wednesday should another opportunity arise. The right-hander has three saves and six holds along with a 2.25 ERA, 0.81 WHIP and 18:3 K:BB across 16 innings this season. Kimbrel is expected to be available again Thursday, so it'll be a brief window as the fill-in closer for Hudson.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Notches third save

    Hudson picked up a save against the Diamondbacks on Saturday, pitching a scoreless ninth inning during which he allowed one hit and struck out two.

    Hudson found himself in immediate trouble when Ketel Marte led off the bottom of the ninth inning with a double, but the veteran reliever escaped with the save by following with a groundout and two strikeouts. Hudson was granted the save opportunity because regular closer Craig Kimbrel threw 26 pitches Friday and realized that his body "just didn't feel good" Saturday, per Jack Harris of the Los Angeles Times. Kimbrel is expected to be available Sunday, but with three saves in three opportunities on the campaign, Hudson has shown that he can be an effective option when Kimbrel is unavailable.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Falters again Thursday

    Hudson (1-3) took the loss against Philadelphia on Thursday, allowing two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out one over one inning.

    The Dodgers stormed back from a 7-3 deficit by scoring four runs in the eighth inning, and they handed the ball to Hudson with hopes that he could keep the score tied in the top of the ninth. However, the veteran reliever was touched for a pair of runs that resulted in his second loss in as many days. There was some bad luck involved for the right-hander -- the first two batters who reached base didn't get the ball out of the infield -- but Hudson also hurt himself with a bases-loaded wild pitch. Despite the hiccup, he has been one of the Dodgers' best bullpen arms on the season, compiling a 3.38 ERA, 1.13 WHIP, 13:3 K:BB and five holds over 10.2 innings.
