Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Save clinches World Series berth
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson earned the save in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Cardinals in Game 4 of the NLCS, giving up one walk in 1.1 innings.

That was quite a week for the 32-year-old journeyman reliever, who was on paternity leave for Game 1 of the NLCS for the birth of his daughter and returned to nail down a pair of saves to help send the Nationals to their first World Series. Hudson has yet to allow a run during the postseason, firing 5.2 scoreless innings over six appearances with four saves in as many opportunities.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Reinstated from paternity list
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson was reinstated from the paternity list and added to the Nationals' NLCS roster Saturday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

The 32-year-old missed the first game of the NLCS for the birth of his child, but is now ready to return to the team and the closer role. Wander Suero was removed from the roster to make room for Hudson.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Away on paternity leave
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson is on paternity leave and will miss the first game of the NLCS against the Cardinals on Friday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.

The Nationals will be missing a key reliever for their first ever NLCS game, but his absence is unlikely to last long. Wander Suero has been designated to be removed from the roster once Hudson is activated.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Locks down eighth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson earned the save against the Phillies on Thursday after tossing a scoreless ninth inning, allowing one walk and striking out three.

Aside from walking Brad Miller, Hudson was in lights out form, preserving a three-run lead in the ninth by whiffing three of his four batters faced. The 32-year-old right-hander owns a sparkling 1.50 ERA and 0.92 WHIP with eight saves across 68 appearances this season.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Another save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson didn't allow a baserunner in the ninth inning of the team's second game of a doubleheader Tuesday against the Phillies.

Hudson closed out both of the team's wins Tuesday, bringing his total save count on the season to seven. Though chances have been limited for the Nationals, Hudson has recorded each of the team's last four saves -- all of which have come in September. Despite manager Dave Martinez continuing to call Sean Doolittle his closer, there's nothing in his usage that suggests that's actually the case as he has yet to appear in save situation this month. In addition, there's little reason for the team to alter Hudson's role before the conclusion of the regular season, as he's now managed seven consecutive scoreless appearances.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Notches sixth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson pitched a perfect ninth inning to record his sixth save of the season in a 4-1 win over the Phillies in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader.

Hudson has earned the save in three of his last four appearances, and it took him just 14 pitches to produce three flyball outs. Manager Dave Martinez said earlier in the day that he still views Sean Doolittle as his closer and is confident Doolittle will eventually return to the role full time.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Collects fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson gave up three hits over two scoreless innings to record his fifth save of the season in Friday's 6-4 win over the Marlins.

Three of the right-hander's saves have come in a Nats uniform after he came over from the Jays at the trade deadline, and he's earned the save in both of his last two appearances. With Sean Doolittle still trying to find his form, it looks like Hudson will be the top closing option for Washington over the final days of the regular season.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Grabs second save as Nat
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson gave up a hit and struck out two over two scoreless innings Tuesday to record his fourth save of the season in a 6-2 win over the Cardinals.

It's his first save since Aug. 13, and the first by any Nats pitcher in September. Hudson has a 2.00 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 17:3 K:BB through 18 innings since the trade that brought him over from Toronto, and with Sean Doolittle still trying to find his form, the right-hander could remain the team's top option in the ninth inning down the stretch.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Implodes in relief appearance
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson retired two batters and served up three unearned runs on two hits and a walk in Tuesday's 11-10 win over the Mets.

Though Hudson was able to keep his season ERA at a pristine 2.86, he wasn't effective in the outing. He let the Mets push their lead to six with two outs in the top of the ninth, surrendering a two-run single to Jeff McNeil and then a two-run home run to Pete Alonso. Hudson has now given up long balls in both of his last two relief appearances, a development that could hurt his standing in the Nationals' bullpen pecking order. With Sean Doolittle having recently returned from the injured list, Hudson isn't a strong bet to receive many save chances the rest of the way anyhow.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Could get saves with Doolittle out
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson will be part of a closer-by-committee situation while Sean Doolittle (knee) is on the 10-day injured list, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

Doolittle was placed on the IL with knee tendinitis and is not expected to be sidelined long. While he is out, Hudson, Hunter Strickland and Fernando Rodney will be the top options for saves. Manager Dave Martinez says he will play the matchups in the ninth inning.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Grabs save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson allowed three hits and no walks while striking out two across 1.1 innings to earn the save Tuesday against the Reds.

Sean Doolittle had pitched three times in four days leading up to the Nationals' contest Tuesday, opening the door for Hudson to earn a save chance. He made things interesting, surrendering a leadoff double and allowing the winning run to come to the plate in the ninth frame, prior to striking out Tucker Barnhart to end the game. Though he isn't likely to get more than a handful of save chances prior to the end of the season, Hudson has pitched well since being dealt to the Nationals, allowing one earned run in 6.2 frames while striking out seven and walking one.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Traded to Nationals
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson was traded from the Blue Jays to the Nationals on Wednesday in exchange for Kyle Johnston, Scott Mitchell of TSN.ca reports.

Hudson will help shore up the Nationals' bullpen -- which owns the worst ERA (5.97) in the majors -- as the team looks to hand onto a playoff spot. The veteran right-hander owns a solid 3.00 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 48:23 K:BB in 48 innings this season and should assume a setup role with his new club.

Blue Jays' Daniel Hudson: Earns second save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson allowed one run on two hits and a walk in 1.1 innings against the Yankees on Saturday but escaped with his second save of the season. He struck out one batter.

Hudson allowed the Yankees' only run of the game, but after Aaron Judge's RBI single, Hudson rebounded to strike out Luke Voit looking. Afterward, manager Charlie Montoyo told Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca that regular closer Ken Giles is dealing with nerve inflammation in his elbow and is day-to-day.

Blue Jays' Daniel Hudson: Nabs win after blowing save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (5-2) was charged with the blown save Saturday against the Royals but still earned the win after giving up one run on one hit during the ninth inning. He had one strikeout and one walk.

Hudson allowed a single and a walk to start the inning, and the Royals scratched across the tying run with a sacrifice bunt and sacrifice fly. According to Laura Armstrong of the Toronto Star, manager Charlie Montoyo wanted to avoid using closer Ken Giles after he threw 17 pitches Friday fresh off the injured list, though Hudson was unable to take advantage to grab his second save of the year. Hudson has otherwise been a fairly reliable option for the Blue Jays with a 2.92 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 38:19 K:BB over 37 innings.

Blue Jays' Daniel Hudson: Earns first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson allowed only one walk and struck out three across 1.1 innings to earn the save Wednesday against the Orioles.

Hudson entered the game with two outs in the eighth inning after a collection of Blue Jays relievers -- including announced temporary closer Joe Biagini -- allowed the Orioles to score six runs. However, he ended the rally quickly, whiffing Hanser Alberto on four pitches. Hudson got off to shaky start in the ninth inning, walking the leadoff batter and hitting the second hitter he faced before recording three straight outs to earn his first save since the 2016 season. Ken Giles (elbow) is only expected to be sidelined for a short time, though Hudson may work his way into the saves picture in the meantime.

Blue Jays' Daniel Hudson: Saddled with second loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (3-2) took the loss Friday against the Padres, allowing three runs (two earned) on a hit and a walk in one inning of relief.

Entering a 3-3 tie in the eighth inning, Hudson walked Manny Machado with one out and then got Eric Hosmer to ground weakly back to the mound for what should have been an inning-ending double play. Instead, the right-hander fired wide of second base to put runners on the corners and then served up a homer to Hunter Renfroe to put the game out of reach. Hudson now has a mediocre 4.18 ERA, 1.31 WHIP and 21:13 K:BB through 23.2 innings with the Jays, but he'll likely continue to see some high-leverage work by default in a bullpen that lacks established and effective options.

Blue Jays' Daniel Hudson: Surrenders one as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson gave up a run on two hits and struck out one across one inning Friday against the White Sox.

Hudson wasn't able to shut down the White Sox as the Blue Jays had hoped, but Toronto was able to put up three runs of their own in the bottom half of the inning. Hudson owns a 3.93 ERA with 17 punchouts over 18.1 frames in 2019 following his latest outing.

May 10, 2019 03:56 PM
Blue Jays' Daniel Hudson: To be used as opener
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson will be used as an opener Friday against the White Sox, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Scheduled starter Clay Buchholz was scratched with a lat strain earlier in the day, and the Blue Jays didn't have time to call up a proper starter. Hudson will pitch first for Toronto but hasn't gotten more than five outs in any of his appearances this season, so he's unlikely to last much longer than that Friday.

Blue Jays' Daniel Hudson: Notches third hold
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson struck out one in two-thirds of an inning Monday to record his third hold of the season in a win over the Twins.

The veteran right-hander is settling into a setup role for the Jays, posting an 8:2 K:BB over 7.1 innings, although Hudson's 6.14 ERA is less appealing. Now on his fourth team in four years, his mid-90s fastball keeps earning him chances, but Hudson's too prone to homer-fueled meltdowns to be a reliable fantasy asset.

Blue Jays' Daniel Hudson: Joining Toronto
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson will sign a major-league deal with the Blue Jays on Sunday, Shi Davidi of Sportsnet.ca reports.

Hudson was released by the Angels on Friday after joining the team on a minor-league deal in February. The 32-year-old had a 4.11 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 44:18 K:BB over 46 innings with the Dodgers last season and figures to serve in a middle relief role with the Blue Jays.
