Hudson and the Diamondbacks agreed to terms on a one-year, $2.7 million deal Friday, avoiding arbitration, Zach Buchanan of AZCentral.com reports. Hudson appeared in 64 games last season, with 63 of those appearances coming out of the bullpen. The 28-year-old posted a 3.86 ERA to go with a 1.315 WHIP across 67.2 cumulative innings. He figures to return in a similar role next season, though he did state that he'd like to return to a starting role at some point.

With regular closer Brad Ziegler away from the team following the birth of his daughter, Hudson was first in line for a save opportunity Wednesday. Hudson's fantasy value remains difficult to project; the hard throwing right-hander has been effective out of the bullpen after returning from Tommy John surgery, but has stated a desire to return to starting in 2016. While he certainly has the stuff to hold down a late innings role, he may make a bid for a rotation spot in spring training next season.
