Daniel Hudson Headshot

Hudson will serve as Pittsburgh's closer on days Tony Watson is unable to close, CBS Pittsburgh reports.

Pirates GM Neal Huntington announced the team's pecking order for saves, listing Watson first and then Hudson and Felipe Rivero. Huntington typically doesn't permit his relievers to pitch three straight days, giving Hudson the chance to potentially close after Watson has thrown in back-to-back calendar days. It wouldn't be surprising to see the Pirates move Watson (who will become a free agent after 2017) at the trade deadline, freeing up Hudson to close in the second half of the season.

Pirates hope they signed the Daniel Hudson of the past and not the present. Hudson had a 5.22 ERA in 60.1 innings last season. Look for Hudson to get a lot of innings there in Pittsburgh.

Hudson and Delgado are both moving into late-innings roles as Jake Barrett and Enrique Burgos have struggled. Hudson recorded 20 holds a season ago and has 17 this year so he stands to earn a majority of the saves. Despite his 6.11 ERA he has given up 0 earned runs since May 5th.

Diamondbacks are close to trading Daniel Hudson.

Where Hudson is going to go is unknown, but it is said to be close. After an excellent 2015 campaign for the Diamondbacks, Hudson has regressed mightily in '16. His ERA has ballooned to 6.08 as he's allowed 12 earned runs in just 6.1 July innings.
Patrick Corbin Headshot

The Diamondbacks reportedly will not trade Patrick Corbin or Robbie Ray, but they could deal bullpen arms like Tyler Clippard or Daniel Hudson.

Corbin and Ray would likely benefit from going to a different ballpark, but it appears that won't happen. Hudson would most likely close if Clippard is traded, and Jake Barrett would likely be next in line if both are dealt. Barrett is worth a speculative add in deep leagues, as is Hudson.

Hudson had been on the Bereavement list for the past few days as he took time go be with his family. Now he is back with the team, though the bullpen is differently constructed. Hudson will continue to be in a middle relief role for the Diamondbacks.

Diamondbacks P Daniel Hudson was placed on the Bereavement List on Tuesday.

Daniel Hudson agreed to terms on a one-year, $2.7 million deal, avoiding arbitration.

Hudson was used out the bullpen primarily during 2015, only getting one start. He was not anything to write home about, but does provide depth in the pen so the one-year deal makes sense for the Diamondbacks.

Daniel Hudson picked up his third save of the year allowing one run in the ninth in the first game of the doubleheader against the Rockies

Added 09/01/15 10:29 pm (EST)   Source
The former starting pitcher Hudson may have found himself a nice niche in the late innings of games for the Diamondbacks. With the departure of Addison Reed to the Mets, Hudson will likely get the majority of save opportunities for the rest of the season.
