Giants, Tim Hudson agree to deal
Tim Hudson has agreed to sign a free agency deal with the Giants for a reported two years and $23 million.
The Giants have agreed to terms with free agent starting pitcher Tim Hudson, Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com is reporting. The deal will be for two years and $23 million, according to Ken Rosenthal of Fox Sports.
Hudson, 38, was 8-7 with a 3.97 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 95 strikeouts in 131 1/3 innings last season for the Braves before suffering a gruesome broken leg while covering first base against the Mets.
This signing marks a return to the Bay Area for Hudson, who spent the first six years of his career pitching for the A's, making the All-Star team twice and receiving votes for the Cy Young three different times.
Hudson will slot fourth in the Giants rotation behind Madison Bumgarner, Matt Cain and Tim Lincecum. The fifth spot in the rotation still appears up in the air, with Ryan Vogelsong still a candidate to be re-signed.
The Braves had hoped to retain Hudson's services, with the Red Sox, Giants, Rockies, Orioles and several other teams having shown interest in signing the veteran.
