  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Nabs win in Tuesday's matinee

    Hudson (2-1) gave up two hits and a walk while striking out one in a scoreless ninth inning during the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Mets, recording the win in a 5-2 extra-inning victory.

    Entering the game in the bottom of the ninth and the score tied, 2-2, Hudson very nearly handed New York the win, loading the bases with just one out. The veteran right-hander bore down and coaxed popups from Tyrone Taylor and Jeff McNeil to end the threat. Hudson has been sharp in May, collecting two saves, a win and a hold in seven appearances with a 1.29 ERA, 0.71 WHIP and 8:1 K:BB, but with Evan Phillips (hamstring) due back by the end of the week, his stint as a fill-in closer is due to end.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Nabs third save

    Hudson struck out two in a perfect inning to earn the save in Monday's 6-4 win over the Diamondbacks.

    Hudson is on a five-inning scoreless streak dating back to his May 8 save versus the Marlins. He's served as the Dodgers' top closing option since Evan Phillips (hamstring) went on the injured list earlier in May, though save chances have been sparse. Hudson has two saves since Phillips was hurt, while J.P. Feyereisen, who was reassigned to Triple-A Oklahoma City over the weekend, is the only other reliever to pick up a save in that span. For the season, Hudson is at a 2.70 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 22:1 K:BB with three saves and eight holds over 20 innings.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Converts for second save

    Hudson earned the save Wednesday against Miami, striking out one over a perfect inning.

    Closer Evan Phillips (hamstring) landed on the injured list Sunday, and it didn't take long for Hudson to step in for the ninth inning. However, it was lefty Alex Vesia who tallied Los Angeles' first save Monday in the wake of the injury. Matchups could dictate which reliever manager Dave Roberts turns to while Phillips is sidelined, which should give Hudson an edge in volume since he's a right-hander.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Coulds see save chances

    Hudson is the likely favorite for save opportunities after Dodgers closer Evan Phillips (hamstring) was placed on the 15-day injured list Sunday.

    Hudson has been working in a setup role in the early stages of the season, putting him in prime position to fill in at closer for the Dodgers. The right-hander has seven holds and a save with a 3.60 ERA, 0.93 WHIP and 16:1 K:BB over 15 innings this year. Phillips' injury was diagnosed as a Grade 1 strain, per David Vassegh of AM 570 LA Sports, so a return at the 15-day minimum is possible.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Locks down save

    Hudson struck out two batters in a perfect ninth inning and earned a save over St. Louis on Sunday.

    Hudson made quick work of the Cardinals with 16 pitches, including five whiffs. The veteran righty was given the shot in the ninth inning after Evan Phillips pitched both Friday and Saturday. Hudson has tossed three scoreless frames with four punchouts to begin the year.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Officially added to roster

    The Dodgers selected Hudson's contract from Triple-A Oklahoma City on Saturday, J.P. Hoornstra of DodgersNation.com reports.

    Hudson had already been told he would be part of the Opening Day bullpen, so his addition was merely a formality. The 37-year-old has missed most of the last two seasons with knee issues but has been superb when on the mound, holding a 1.98 ERA and 35:8 K:BB over 27.1 innings during that span. He figures to be used in a setup role.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Will be part of Opening Day roster

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Wednesday that Hudson "will be in our bullpen," Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Hudson is attending camp as a non-roster invitee, but Roberts' comments imply that the veteran reliever will be added to the 40-man roster and 26-man active roster ahead of the Dodgers' March 20 season opener versus the Padres in South Korea. Though he missed most of the last two seasons with knee issues, Hudson has been healthy thus far in spring training. Hudson hasn't been overly sharp in 3.2 Cactus League innings, allowing two runs on four hits and three walks, but the Dodgers will bet on the veteran right-hander's track record as they include him in their bullpen.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Could pitch in Korea series

    Hudson (knee) is trending toward being on the active roster for the March 20-21 series against the Padres in South Korea, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Dodgers manager Dave Roberts indicated Friday that Hudson still needs to refine his execution after missing most of the last two seasons with knee issues. However, it does not appear there are any physical limitations for Hudson at this juncture. The veteran reliever is in camp as a non-roster invitee, but it sounds like the Dodgers fully intend to add him to the 26-man roster.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Re-signed to minors contract

    The Dodgers re-signed Hudson (knee) to a minor-league contract Wednesday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

    Hudson will earn $2 million if he cracks the major-league roster in Los Angeles, and the deal also includes another $2 million in performance-based bonuses. The veteran reliever made only three big-league appearances in 2023 because of serious knee issues, but he held a 2.96 ERA and 105:21 K:BB in 76 innings between 2021-22 and is expected to carry a clean bill of health into spring training in 2024.

  • Daniel Hudson: Becomes free agent

    The Dodgers declined Hudson's (knee) $6.5 million club option for 2024 on Sunday.

    Hudson missed the second half of the 2023 campaign due to a sprained MCL in his right knee. However, he aimed to return to the Dodgers' bullpen if they advanced to the NLCS, so it seems as though he's at least close to full health as he prepares for free agency.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Set for intrasquad appearance

    Hudson (knee) is scheduled to pitch in an intrasquad game Thursday at Dodger Stadium, Mike DiGiovanna of the Los Angeles Times reports.

    Hudson has been sidelined since early July because of a sprained MCL in his right knee and won't be ready for the NLDS, but he is aiming to return to the Dodgers' bullpen if they advance to the NLCS. The veteran reliever resumed facing live hitters in late September and has progressed without issue so far.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Won't return before NLCS

    Hudson (knee) is slated to throw live batting practice during the Dodgers' upcoming road trip and could return to game action if the team advances to the NLCS, per the Associated Press.

    Hudson has been out with a sprained MCL in his right knee since July 5 and has pitched in just three major-league games this season. He only recently resumed throwing to live hitters, so he still has a ways to go until he could potentially be ready for game action. The Dodgers have already wrapped up a spot in the NLDS, but Hudson won't be ready to return for that series. Should Los Angeles advance past that round, however, the veteran reliever could be added to the roster for the NLCS, which begins Oct. 16.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Throws to live hitters

    Hudson (knee) tossed a live bullpen session Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    This is a significant step forward for Hudson, whose previous throwing session was from the slope (not the rubber) of the bullpen mound. The veteran reliever has pitched in just three games this season, with his latest appearance with Los Angeles taking place July 5. It remains unlikely that Hudson will be able to return by the end of the campaign, though it's possible he could be an option if the Dodgers go deep into the postseason.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Throws in bullpen Tuesday

    Hudson (knee) threw pitches from the slope of the bullpen mound Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Hudson hasn't recovered as quickly as hoped after spraining the MCL in his right knee in early July and has been deemed by manager Dave Roberts a "longshot" to return this season. Nonetheless, the veteran reliever is continuing to throw, albeit from the slope of the mound rather than the rubber. That detail suggests that Hudson is still far away from being able to pitch in a game situation, so it's unlikely he returns in 2023, even if the Dodgers make a deep postseason run.

  • Dodgers' Daniel Hudson: Longshot to return

    Hudson (knee) is a "longshot" to return this season, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    The Dodgers have tried to keep the door open for Hudson to return this season, though it seems as if that hope is fading. Manager Dave Roberts relayed that Hudson threw a bullpen session recently but was still dealing with soreness in his knee. It's unclear whether he could make a return for the postseason, or if a return to start 2024 is most realistic.
