Pirates' Daniel Hudson: Inks two-year deal with Pittsburgh
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hudson signed a two-year, $11 million contract with the Pirates on Monday, Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports reports.

While Hudson produced an ugly 5.22 ERA and 1.44 WHIP over 60.1 innings with the Diamondbacks last season, the right-hander flashed the skills that suggested he could become a dominant reliever. Hudson had an average fastball velocity of nearly 96 miles per hour and struck out almost a batter per inning last season, so if pitching coach Ray Searage can work his magic and help Hudson improve his secondary offerings, he could show vast improvement with his numbers. For the time being, Tony Watson is the frontrunner to open the season as the Pirates' closer, but Hudson may rank as the top challenger out of the bullpen. He briefly served as the Diamondbacks' closer in the final month of the season to promising results, generating three saves and a 1.54 ERA over 11.2 innings.

Diamondbacks' Daniel Hudson: Picks up third save against Rockies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson picked up his third save in Monday's win over the Rockies with a scoreless ninth.

Hudson has struck out eight and walked just one over five innings since picking up his second save of the season August 30 against the Giants. It's unclear if he has the stuff to hack it as a closer long-term, but if he keeps pitching like this, he might have the inside track at the role come next season in Arizona.

Diamondbacks' Daniel Hudson: Nabs second save against Giants
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Hudson allowed a run on one hit but still picked up his second save Tuesday against the Giants.

Hudson has allowed a run in each of his past two appearances -- a blown save August 26 and Tuesday's successful outing. The Diamondbacks are testing out Hudson in the closer's role down the stretch thanks to injuries and ineffectiveness out of their bullpen, but it's likely to be a challenge considering Hudson's lack of the typical closer strikeout stuff. Since he moved to the bullpen full time in 2015, Hudson has 113 strikeouts in 115.1 innings -- decent, but not enough to make up for his susceptibility to the home run ball (12 allowed over the past two seasons, 0.9 HR/9). The Diamondbacks have little to lose with this experiment, though, so Hudson's performance as closer will be worth keeping an eye on.

Diamondbacks' Daniel Hudson: Could see late-innings work
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Hudson will likely move into a late-inning role, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

Given the recent struggles of Jake Barrett and Enrique Burgos at the back end of the Arizona bullpen, the announcement makes sense. Hale said both Hudson and Randall Delgado could be used in high-leverage situations going forward. Hudson recorded 20 holds a season ago and has 17 in 2016, so he's probably the safer bet of the two to see save opportunities.
