  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Surrenders six runs in loss

    Hudson (6-5) took the loss during Monday's 6-3 defeat at the hands of the Braves, allowing six runs on nine hits and three walks with two strikeouts in four innings.

    Hudson fell behind early and St. Louis was unable to rebound, as he permitted one run on two hits in the first inning and five runs on six baserunners in the second. The 27-year-old has seen his ERA rise after each of his last five starts -- increasing from 2.76 to 4.29 -- while also posting the worst K/BB of the 64 qualified starters at 1.18 thanks to 46 strikeouts and 39 free passes in 84 frames. Hudson will look to get back on track in his next start, which tentatively lines up for this weekend against Philadelphia.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Does enough for the win

    Hudson (6-4) gave up three earned runs on six hits and a walk while striking out three over five innings to earn the win in a 5-3 victory over the Marlins on Tuesday.

    Hudson gave up three runs in the third inning, but his offense bailed him out with a four-run tally in the bottom of the fifth to help him to his sixth win of the season. Hudson hasn't yet snapped fully back to form following Tommy John surgery, as he's only recorded 44 strikeouts over 80 innings and carries a pedestrian 1.35 WHIP. The most encouraging sign for the 27-year-old right-hander is that he's healthy and consistently making starts in a Cardinals rotation which has been hit with injuries to Steven Matz (shoulder), Jack Flaherty (shoulder) and Jordan Hicks (forearm). Look for him to take the mound Sunday at Philadelphia.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Struggles in loss

    Hudson (5-4) took the loss against Milwaukee on Thursday, allowing five runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two batters in 4.1 innings.

    Home runs were responsible for most of the damage against Hudson in the loss, as a three-run shot by Tyrone Taylor in the fourth inning and a solo blast by Willy Adames in the fifth largely did him in. The right-hander was somewhat fortunate that things didn't get further out of hand, as Milwaukee failed to capitalize on a no-out, bases-loaded situation in the third frame. Hudson also continued to struggle with his control, issuing multiple walks for the 11th time in 14 outings this season. His 3.72 ERA isn't terrible, but fantasy managers should be wary of his 1.35 WHIP and 35 walks, which are third-most in the majors.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Works around control issues in win

    Hudson (5-3) earned the win over Boston on Saturday, pitching five innings and allowing two runs on four hits and five walks while striking out three.

    Hudson threw only 50 of 93 pitches for strikes and allowed a season-high five walks, but he limited the Red Sox to two runs to pick up the victory. The right-hander has issued multiple free passes in 10 of his 13 starts this season and has given up 32 walks overall (tied for third-most in the majors), but he has nonetheless managed to post a solid 3.31 ERA. Much of Hudson's success has been centered on his ability to keep the ball in the park -- he has surrendered only four long balls across 70.2 innings on the campaign.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Fades in loss

    Hudson (4-3) allowed six runs on nine hits, two walks and a hit batter with two strikeouts in seven innings, taking the loss Sunday versus the Reds.

    Hudson kept the Reds off the board until the fourth inning, where they rallied for three runs. Those came on a bases-loaded hit batter, a double play and a single. They added another run in the fifth inning and two more in the seventh, leaving Hudson to take his first loss since May 3 despite going seven frames for his third straight start. The right-hander now has a 3.29 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 36:27 K:BB across 65.2 innings in 12 starts. Next up for Hudson is a road start versus the Red Sox next weekend.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Excellent in no-decision

    Hudson allowed a run on two hits and a walk, striking out six in seven innings of a 4-2 loss Tuesday in Tampa Bay. He did not factor into the decision.

    Hudson mowed through the Cardinals' lineup through the first six innings, allowing just two baserunners. Manuel Margot doubled to begin the seventh and the Rays manufactured a run with a groundout and a sacrifice fly. It was the first time he struck out more than four batters in a game this season. The 27-year-old has an impressive 2.76 ERA despite a 34:25 K:BB in 58.2 innings.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Goes seven innings in win

    Hudson (4-2) allowed a run on four hits and a walk with three strikeouts in seven innings, earning the win Wednesday over the Padres.

    Hudson had missed the five-inning mark in three of his last four starts, but he bounced back with his longest outing of the year Wednesday. The lone run on his line came from a Manny Machado RBI single in the first inning. This was also just the second time in 10 starts that Hudson's issued less than two walks -- the first time was in his season debut. He's done fairly well despite the shaky command, posting a 2.96 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 28:24 K:BB through 51.2 innings this year. He'll look to build off of this strong outing next week in a road start versus the Rays.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Tosses 4.2 scoreless frames

    Hudson allowed five hits and four walks over 4.2 shutout innings in Friday's win over the Brewers. He struck out three and did not factor in the decision.

    Hudson wasn't very sharp but he navigated through his fourth scoreless outing of the season. He threw 97 pitches (56 strikes) and failed to complete five innings for the third time in his last four starts. The 27-year-old righty lowered his season ERA to 3.22 with a lackluster 25:23 K:BB through 44.2 innings. Hudson is expected to face the Padres at home next week.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Shaky outing in no-decision

    Hudson didn't factor into the decision after allowing four runs on five hits and two walks across 4.2 innings during Thursday's 7-6 loss to the Mets. He struck out two.

    Hudson struggled out of the gate, allowing two runs in the first, but he was able to settle down over the next three innings. However, the Mets offense got going again in the fifth, ultimately chasing Hudson before he could get out of the inning. His next start is tentatively scheduled for next Thursday against Milwaukee.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Throws five shutout innings for win

    Hudson (3-2) earned the win Saturday against the Giants after throwing five scoreless innings, striking out two and walking two while allowing five hits.

    As usual, Hudson didn't generate many whiffs, with the outing lowering his season strikeout rate to 13.5 percent, but a win and five scoreless frames still provide plenty of fantasy value. The righty didn't throw a single clean frame, but he avoided serious trouble throughout the night to drop his ERA to 3.06 through seven starts. He'll look to lower it again his next time out, which tentatively lines up for Thursday against the Mets.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Struggles in short outing

    Hudson allowed three runs on five hits and four walks over 4.2 innings in Sunday's loss to the Giants. He did not factor in the decision.

    All three runs that scored against Hudson came during the second inning, with most of the damage coming via LaMonte Wade's two-run homer. He failed to complete at least six innings for the first time since April 17 and saw his ERA climb to 3.56 with a lackluster 18:15 K:BB. Hudson is lined up for a rematch with the Giants at home next week.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Quality start in loss

    Hudson (2-2) took the loss, allowing three runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out four in six innings in a 7-1 loss in Kansas City.

    The damage against Hudson could have been much greater if not for some well-timed double-play balls. Eleven of the 27 batters against him reached base, with only Bobby Witt's solo homer going for extra bases. Entering the game, the righty had a 1.02 WHIP but that increased to 1.21 following the outing. It was the third consecutive start in which the 27-year-old tossed at least six innings.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Hurls six scoreless frames

    Hudson (2-1) earned the win over Arizona on Thursday, pitching six scoreless innings during which he allowed one hit and three walks while striking out four.

    Hudson's control was shaky in the outing, as he threw only 46 of 84 pitches for strikes. However, the right-hander made up for his three free passes by allowing only one hit and keeping the Diamondbacks off the scoreboard for six innings. This was Hudson's second straight impressive win, and he allowed just three hits with an 8:7 K:BB over 12.2 scoreless frames in those outings. The walks may catch up to him eventually, but for now Hudson is rolling, and he'll look to keep the momentum going when he faces Kansas City next week.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Shuts down Reds for first win

    Hudson (1-1) earned the win over the Reds on Saturday, allowing two hits and four walks over 6.2 scoreless innings. He struck out four.

    The Reds are a mess, offensively, and Hudson made his layup in this one. His 4:4 K:BB doesn't look great, however, and 6.2 scoreless innings won't eliminate performance concerns with Hudson. He had a 7.71 ERA coming into Saturday's game and some troubling batted-ball data to go along with it. The right-hander is looking to re-establish himself after missing nearly all of last season following 2020 Tommy John surgery.
