Daniel Hudson hits DL with shoulder impingement

By Matt Snyder | Baseball Writer
Diamondbacks starting pitcher Daniel Hudson has been placed on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 19, the club announced Saturday. Hudson has a right shoulder impingement.

Right-handed relief pitcher Jonathan Albaladejo has been recalled from the minors as Hudson's roster replacement.

Hudson is 1-1 with a 6.00 ERA so far this year, but he was productive last season, going 16-12 with a 3.49 ERA and 1.20 WHIP in 222 innings.

Albaladejo, 29, last pitched in the majors for the 2010 Yankees. He spent the 2011 season in Japan. He has a 2.35 ERA and 0.65 WHIP in Triple-A this season.

There's no word yet on a potential replacement for Hudson in the rotation, but there is one really intriguing option: Trevor Bauer -- the No. 3 overall pick in last June's draft. He's currently dominating Double-A, but he's only made seven career starts in Double-A. Plus, the club probably doesn't want to start his arbitration clock until he's permanently a member of the rotation.

The smart money is on Barry Enright, a 26-year-old right hander who has a 1.83 ERA through four starts in Triple-A this season. He's made 24 career starts in the majors.
