Joe Hudson: Becomes free agent
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.

Angels' Joe Hudson: Designated for assignment
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson was designated for assignment by the Angels on Friday.

He was cast off the 40-man roster in order to make room for Kevan Smith, who was claimed off waivers from the White Sox. Hudson had his contract selected from the minors in September and went 2-for-12 with a double and one RBI during his first taste of the big leagues. He will now take a spin through waivers.
