Top Joe Hudson News

  • Braves' Joe Hudson: Sent to MiLB camp

    Atlanta reassigned Hudson to minor-league camp Monday.

    Hudson was signed to a minor-league deal with Atlanta with an invitation to spring training back in December. The 31-year-old backstop will likely split time in Gwinnett with Ryan Casteel, who was also reassigned by Atlanta on Monday to the minors.

  • Braves' Joe Hudson: Finds work with Atlanta

    Hudson signed a minor-league contract with Atlanta on Dec. 5.

    Hudson will provide organizational catching depth for an Atlanta club that features a new No. 1 catcher heading into 2023 in Sean Murphy, whom the club acquired in a three-team deal with the Athletics and Brewers earlier this week. Travis d'Arnaud is expected to begin the season as Murphy's top backup, so unless either of the two backstops are sidelined at any point during the upcoming season, Hudson is unlikely to surface in the majors. Hudson has spent the entirety of the past two seasons at the Triple-A level since seeing action in nine games with Seattle in 2020.

  • Rays' Joe Hudson: Sent out of big-league camp

    The Rays reassigned Hudson to minor-league camp Thursday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Even with MLB teams getting 28 active roster spots until May 1 due to the delayed start to spring training, the Rays weren't inclined to keep Hudson around as their No. 3 catcher behind Mike Zunino and Francisco Mejia. Hudson is expected to begin the campaign at Triple-A Durham and will likely serve as organizational catching depth.

  • Rays' Joe Hudson: Signs with Rays

    Hudson signed a minor-league contract with the Rays on Friday, Marc Topkin of the Tampa Bay Times reports.

    Hudson appeared in 47 games at Triple-A Indianapolis in 2021 and hit .188 with three home runs, 18 RBI and 11 runs. He's made brief appearances in the majors with the Dodgers, Cardinals and Mariners and will receive an invitation to big-league spring training.

  • Joe Hudson: Released by Pirates

    Hudson was released by the Pirates on Friday, Mike Persak of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette reports.

    Hudson failed to break camp with the Pirates this year and spent the entire 2021 campaign at Triple-A Indianapolis. He slashed .188/.269/.292 with three home runs, 18 RBI and 11 runs across 47 appearances, but he'll now hit free agency ahead of the offseason.

  • Pirates' Joe Hudson: Reassigned to MiLB camp

    Hudson was reassigned to minor-league camp Wednesday.

    Hudson served as a non-roster invitee this spring and went 4-for-11 with a home run, one double, four RBI and three strikeouts while appearing in eight Grapefruit League games. The backstop should begin the regular season with Triple-A Indianapolis.

  • Pirates' Joe Hudson: Joining Pirates' camp

    Hudson signed with the Pirates as a non-roster invitee Monday, Alex Stumpf of reports.

    Hudson spent last season with the Mariners' organization, going 3-for-17 at the plate. The 29-year-old has received just 33 total plate appearances at the highest level, posting a .167/.219/.200 slash line. He fits best in an organizational depth role, though the Pirates' shallow roster could mean he earns unexpected playing time.

  • Joe Hudson: Becomes free agent

    Hudson declined an outright assignment to Triple-A Tacoma on Monday and became a free agent.

    Hudson got into nine games for the Mariners this season, going 3-for-17 at the plate. As a 29-year-old with just 33 career big-league plate appearances, he'll almost certainly be looking for a minor-league deal this winter.

  • Mariners' Joe Hudson: Promoted for season finale

    Hudson was recalled from the alternate training site Sunday.

    The 29-year-old will rejoin the big-league club ahead of the season finale with Luis Torrens (back) heading to the injured list. Hudson will serve as the backup catcher to Joseph Odom on Sunday.

  • Mariners' Joe Hudson: Sent back to secondary site

    Hudson was optioned by the Mariners on Monday.

    Hudson's latest stint on the Mariners' roster lasted just two days. Luis Torrens, acquired in a trade with the Padres on Sunday, was added to the roster in a corresponding move and is expected to be the team's primary catcher.

  • Mariners' Joe Hudson: Back up with big club

    The Mariners recalled Hudson from their alternate training site Sunday.

    Neither of the Mariners' top two backstops (Austin Nola and Joseph Odom) are believed to be dealing with an injury, so Hudson will likely just serve as emergency depth while he's up with the big club.

  • Mariners' Joe Hudson: Loses spot on active roster

    Hudson was optioned to the Mariners' alternate training site Friday.

    Hudson saw a fair amount of playing time while serving as the backup to Austin Nola, but he went just 2-for-16 with five strikeouts. He'll remain on the taxi squad for the team's current series, so he'll be available in an emergency situation. Joseph Odom was recalled from alternate camp to serve as depth behind the plate on the active roster.

  • Mariners' Joe Hudson: Opening as second catcher

    Hudson will begin the season as the Mariners' second catcher after Tom Murphy was diagnosed with a fractured foot Wednesday, Shannon Drayer of 710 ESPN Seattle reports.

    Hudson never appeared likely to make the roster as a non-roster invitee, but he'll nonethelss open as the backup option ahead of prospects Cal Raleigh and Brian O'Keefe. Murphy doesn't have an official timeline for his return but isn't expected to face a significant absence, while Austin Nola takes over starting duties in the meantime.

  • Mariners' Joe Hudson: Joins 60-man player pool

    Hudson will be part of the Mariners' 60-man training roster.

    Hudson is one of five catchers to get an invite to Seattle's summer camp, but he is at best fourth on the depth chart and is unlikely to see significant MLB action this season.

  • Mariners' Joe Hudson: Signs with Seattle

    Hudson signed with the Mariners as a non-roster invitee Wednesday, Ryan Divish of The Seattle Times reports.

    The 28-year-old has appeared in just nine career games at the big-league level, including just one for the Cardinals last season. After hitting a modest .223/.293/.411 in 60 games for Triple-A Memphis in 2019, it doesn't appear that he's on the verge of a big-league breakout.

  • Joe Hudson: Chooses free agency

    Hudson elected free agency Monday rather than accept an outright assignment to the minors.

    Hudson is unlikely to receive a big-league contract this winter after receiving just one major-league plate appearance in 2019. As a free agent, he'll at least have a choice of which minor-league system looks most appealing.

  • Cardinals' Joe Hudson: Outrighted off roster

    Hudson was outrighted to the minors Friday.

    Hudson received a single major-league plate appearance in 2019 after receiving 12 the season prior. He posted a poor 65 wRC+ for Triple-A Memphis, where he spent the majority of the year, and doesn't look like anything more than organizational depth moving forward.

  • Cardinals' Joe Hudson: Called up to majors

    Hudson was added to the active roster by the Cardinals on Sunday.

    Hudson has spent the entirety of the campaign with Triple-A Memphis. He's hit just .223/.293/.411 across 60 games but will get the chance to close the season in the major leagues. He's unlikely to get much playing time, however, buried on the depth chart behind Yadier Molina, Matt Wieters and Andrew Knizner.

  • Cardinals' Joe Hudson: Signs with Cardinals

    Hudson inked a minor-league contract with St. Louis on Tuesday, Fabian Ardaya of The Athletic reports.

    Hudson made his major-league debut in 2018, playing in eight games for the Angels after spending a majority of the campaign at the Triple-A level. In just 12 plate appearances with Los Angeles, he went 2-for-12 with a double and one RBI. The 27-year-old will serve as additional catching depth in the Cardinals' system heading into next season.

  • Angels' Joe Hudson: Clears waivers

    Hudson cleared waivers after being designated for assignment by the Angels on Friday.

    Hudson was outrighted to Triple-A Salt Lake after passing through waivers unclaimed. During his time with the Bees last season, Hudson slashed .293/.369/.437 with four home runs and 22 RBI in 49 games. He will continue to serve as catching depth in the Angels' system.
