Hudson threw live batting practice to multiple teammates in Saturday's summer camp workout at Busch Stadium, Anne Rogers of MLB.com reports.
The right-hander faced a formidable lineup of Matt Carpenter, Paul Goldschmidt, Dexter Fowler, Paul DeJong, Matt Wieters, Harrison Bader and Kolten Wong, which was a welcome departure from the throwing sessions against a pad that Hudson carried out during the three-month-plus shutdown. The 25-year-old also used his time away from the team to continue working on smoothing out his delivery, a process he'd started during the offseason in an effort to improve his command. "I feel comfortable with what I'm doing," Hudson said. " I was trying to mess with some stuff at the end of last year, and going into spring this year, I was able to show it off a little bit. From here on, I just felt like that off time was me engraving it."
