Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Nails down 10th save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson walked one and struck out one in a scoreless seventh inning to record his 10th save of the season during the second game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Mets.

The right-hander hadn't pitched since Tuesday and had blown his last two save chances, but Hudson was up to the task in Saturday's nightcap, His 6.10 ERA on the season has been fueled by six homers allowed in 20.2 innings, but otherwise Hudson's 1.26 WHIP and 28:11 K:BB have been solid. With one year left on his current contract, the 33-year-old will likely be back in a high-leverage role for the Nats in 2021.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Earns win after blown save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (2-2) earned the win against the Rays on Wednesday, allowing a solo home run but recording two strikeouts in the ninth inning.

The veteran right-hander secured the first two outs of the inning with no issues, but he was unable to maintain the one-run lead and gave up a solo homer to Brandon Lowe, though he still ended up notching the victory. Hudson has a 7.13 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 24:7 K:BB over 17.2 innings and has converted nine of his 14 save chances this season.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Secures ninth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson recorded the save Tuesday against the Rays with one strikeout and one hit allowed during a scoreless ninth inning.

The veteran right-hander surrendered a one-out single, but he still needed only 14 pitches to finish off the victory. Hudson has posted a 5.74 ERA, 0.96 WHIP and 21:5 K:BB over 15.2 innings while going 9-for-12 in save opportunities.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Notches one-out save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson struck out the only batter he faced to record his eighth save of the season in Monday's 6-1 win over the Rays.

After Will Harris loaded the bases with two outs in the ninth inning, Hudson came in with the tying run on deck and needed only four pitches to fan Randy Arozarena and end the threat. The veteran right-hander's ERA is a bloated 6.14, but Hudson's 20:5 K:BB through 14.2 innings -- not to mention last year's postseason success -- have kept him in the closer job for the Nats.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Hangs on for seventh save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson gave up two runs on a hit and a walk while striking out one over one inning Friday, but he still recorded his seventh save of the season in the second game of a doubleheader against Atlanta.

Called in to protect a 10-7 lead, Hudson served up a two-run blast to Travis d'Arnaud before he was able to get an out, but the veteran reliever settled down afterward to escape with the save. Hudson has been taken deep five times in 14.1 innings, leading to a 6.28 ERA, but his 19:5 K:BB and 0.98 WHIP remain strong, and his spot as the Nats' closer doesn't appear to be in jeopardy.

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

Hudson struck out two in a perfect seventh inning to earn the save in Game 1 of Saturday's doubleheader against the Marlins.

The 33-year-old needed only nine pitches -- all strikes -- to retire the side in order and close out the matinee. Hudson has converted six of eight save chances with a 6.30 ERA, 0.80 WHIP and 16:2 K:BB through 10 innings this season.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Rebounds for fifth save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his fifth save of the season in an 8-5 win over Atlanta.

The right-hander was dialed in, firing 14 of his 16 pitches for strikes, and Hudson only needed to work as hard as he did because Matt Adams fouled off four straight 0-2 fastballs before finally waving at a slider. Hudson is now 5-for-7 on save chances, with the two blowups inflating his ERA to 7.00, but his 0.89 WHIP and 14:2 K:BB through nine innings are better indicators of his performance this season. He's now pitched on three straight days, however, so expect Tanner Rainey or Will Harris to get the nod if the Nats have a late lead to protect Wednesday.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Blows save Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (1-2) blew the save and took the loss Monday as the Nationals fell 7-6 to Atlanta, giving up four runs on three hits -- including two home runs -- over two-thirds of an inning. He struck out one.

Hudson entered the ninth inning with a three-run cushion, but after he hit Nick Markakis with a pitch to open the frame, Adam Duvall took him deep for a two-run homer, and then Dansby Swanson did the same a few batters later. Hudson has blown two of his last four save chances, with long balls being the issue each time, and as a result he now carries a 7.88 ERA -- although his 1.00 WHIP and 12:2 K:BB through eight innings are far more palatable. If he continues to struggle, however, Will Harris or Tanner Rainey could get into the closer mix for the Nats.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Earns save against Orioles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson struck out two in a perfect ninth inning to earn the save Sunday against the Orioles.

Hudson blew his first save of the season when he faced the Orioles on Aug. 8, but he tossed a perfect inning in Sunday's series finale to earn his fourth save in five attempts. Outside of his lone blown save, the right-hander has been quite effective this year and has a relatively firm hold on ninth-inning duties.

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

Hudson struck out two in a perfect ninth inning Tuesday to record his third save of the season in a 2-1 win over the Mets.

The veteran right-hander has been mostly effective to begin the year, getting scored upon in only one of his six appearances and converting three of his four save chances. With Sean Doolittle working in low-leverage spots right now as he tries to regain the late movement on his fastball, Hudson has the closer job to himself.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Nabs another save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson allowed one walk and struck out two in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Tuesday against the Mets.

Hudson was called upon to protect a 5-3 lead, and successfully did so on 14 pitches to record his second save of the season. The only baserunner he allowed came on a walk with two outs, and Hudson retired the next batter he faced to end the contest. Notably, Hudson has claimed both saves for the Nationals this season, and Sean Doolittle did not even appear in a setup role in the contest.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Picks up first save
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson allowed one hit and struck out one in a scoreless ninth inning to earn the save Thursday against the Blue Jays.

Hudson successfully maintained a two-run lead for the Nationals to earn his first save of the season. He allowed a two-out double, but retired Cavan Biggio with a strikeout to end the contest. Most notably, Sean Doolittle -- another candidate for saves in the Nationals' bullpen -- did not enter the game, even with the team maintaining a lead from start to finish. Given that Doolittle has pitched only twice this season, he was almost certainly available to throw. Given that, it appears Hudson may be the team's primary choice to close games to begin the season.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Dominant in relief win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (1-0) struck out three over 1.2 perfect innings of relief to pick up the win in Wednesday's extra-inning victory over the Blue Jays.

Facing the team that dealt him to the eventual world champs last July, Hudson was lights out to finish off the eighth inning and breezed through the ninth in a scoreless game, before the Nats were able to break it open in the top of the 10th. The veteran right-hander has a 4:0 K:BB through his first 2.2 innings on the year without giving up a run, and his spot as one of the team's key high-leverage arms is secure.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: To take bump Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson is schedule to make his first appearance of the spring Monday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.

The right-hander will throw a side session Sunday, and if all goes well he'll make his spring debut after a day off. Hudson was eased into camp after seeing a heavy workload down the stretch and into the playoffs last year, and while Sean Doolittle will likely be the Nats' primary closer to begin the regular season, Hudson will still be a key part of the team's late-inning crew.

Nationals' Daniel Hudson: Light workload to begin spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson has no timetable for his Grapefruit League debut as the Nationals carefully monitor his spring workload, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.

The right-hander was one of the stars of the team's run to a championship last year, but he did it while battling through knee pain. "There were times when I started to feel my arm overcompensating for my knee being sore since it was my back leg and I was trying to generate force and velocity," Hudson said. "But it never got to the point where my elbow or shoulder was in jeopardy. If it did, I wouldn't have been pitching. I was able to make it through." After taking a full month off in November, Hudson resumed his offseason routine and headed into spring training fully healthy, but the Nats would like to keep it that way, so he'll be held to bullpen sessions on back fields for now. He'll be part of the late-inning mix alongside Sean Doolittle and Will Harris, but Doolittle will likely be the team's primary closer to begin the season.

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

Hudson returned to the Nationals on a two-year, $11 million contract Monday, Jeff Passan of ESPN.com reports.

The 32-year-old hadn't been a particularly notable reliever for the last several seasons but had an excellent 2019 campaign, posting a 2.47 ERA with a career-best eight saves in 73 innings for the Blue Jays and Nationals. He topped his season off with four more saves in the postseason while teammate Sean Doolittle grabbed just two. Doolittle has a much longer track record in the ninth inning and will likely enter as the top option there again, but Hudson should be first in line should the lefty get injured.

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.
