Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Notches 11th win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (11-6) earned the win Wednesday after holding the Royals scoreless over six innings, allowing five hits and two walks while striking out five.

Facing the Royals for the first time, Hudson delivered a solid performance to earn his 13th win in his last 16 starts. Despite allowing runners to reach in every inning except the third, the right-hander held his opponent scoreless for just the third time (second start) this season. The 24-year-old had previously allowed 10 runs over his last 11.2 innings, but he shut the Royals out in dominant fashion to improve to a 3.82 ERA, 1.55 WHIP and 97:59 K:BB on the season. He'll gear up for a tougher matchup on Monday against the Twins.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Early exit in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson didn't factor into the decision in Friday's 6-2 win over the Pirates, allowing two runs on six hits over four innings. He didn't walk or strike out a batter.

The right-hander tossed only 49 pitches (31 strikes) before being lifted for a pinch hitter with the score tied 2-2 in the bottom of the fourth, marking the third straight start in which Hudson failed to pitch into the fifth inning. While his rotation spot may not be in jeopardy, his fantasy value takes a big hit if he can't last long enough to even qualify for a win. Hudson will take a 4.01 ERA and 93:57 K:BB through 121.1 innings into his next outing Wednesday in Kansas City.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Loses to A's
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (10-6) allowed four runs (three earned) on five hits and five walks over 3.2 innings against the A's on Saturday. He took the loss and struck out seven batters in the 8-3 decision.

Hudson did not do himself any favors by issuing a season-high five free passes in the contest, and he needed 93 pitches to get through the abbreviated outing, which raised his ERA to 3.99 with a 1.58 WHIP in 117.1 innings this season. He's been a bit lucky overall, entering Saturday's game with a 5.40 FIP. The 24-year-old's next start is expected to come at home versus the Pirates on Friday.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Allows three runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (10-5) yielded five runs on eight hits and two walks over four innings Sunday, striking out five and taking the loss against Houston.

Hudson allowed a pair of solo homers to George Springer and Yordan Alvarez in the first and third innings, respectively, but those were the only two runs to cross the plate on him through four frames. Then, before he could record an out in the fifth, Jose Altuve took him deep for a three-run shot followed by another single and a walk, ending his afternoon. Hudson will carry a 3.88 ERA into next Sunday's outing in Oakland.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Wins 10th game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (10-4) allowed three runs on six hits with three walks and five strikeouts across 6.1 innings while earning a victory against the Pirates on Tuesday.

The Pirates scored three runs before Hudson recorded an out Tuesday, but that's all the runs the Cardinals' pitching staff yielded. Hudson has won four straight starts, and although his ERA has increased during the winning streak, he still owns a 3.61 ERA, 1.50 WHIP and 81 strikeouts in 109.2 innings this season. Hudson will be on the mound next at home against the Astros on Sunday.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Picks up ninth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (9-4) got the win against the Reds on Thursday, giving up three earned runs on six hits over five innings, striking out three and walking two as the Cardinals won 7-4.

The 24-year-old continues to hold his own in his first full season as a starter, notching his third win in his last four starts in this contest. He's sporting a solid 3.57 ERA over 103.1 innings, although his 1.51 WHIP suggests he's probably a bit fortunate that number isn't a little higher. He'll take on the Pirates in his next start on the road on Tuesday.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Grabs win despite shaky control
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (8-4) struck out five and picked up the win in Saturday's 4-2 victory over the Diamondbacks, allowing two runs on three hits and four walks over six innings.

The right-hander delivered his 10th quality start of the season despite throwing only 53 of 94 pitches for strikes and tying his season high in free passes. Hudson will take a 3.48 ERA and 73:46 K:BB over 98.1 innings into his next outing Thursday in Cincinnati.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Picks up seventh win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (7-4) pitched five innings Friday, allowing three runs on six hits and three walks while striking out six to earn the win in a 9-4 victory over the Giants.

Hudson got into a jam in the first inning, allowing a pair of runs, and he surrendered a solo home run to Alex Dickerson in the third inning. Hudson has a 3.51 ERA and 1.53 WHIP in 92.1 innings this season. He takes a 68:41 K:BB into his next scheduled start against the Pirates on July 15.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Pummeled by Padres
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (6-4) allowed seven runs (one earned) on five hits and a walk over 1.2 innings in a 12-2 loss to the Padres on Saturday. He struck out two.

It was the shortest start of the season for Hudson, who had allowed more than five runs only twice in 15 starts entering the game. Luckily, his ERA went mostly undamaged, rising only to 3.40 with a 1.51 WHIP in 87.1 innings this year. The 24-year-old right-hander will look to get back on track versus the Giants on Friday.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Throws seven strong innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson struck out six and improved to 6-3 after allowing just one run on five hits and a walk in seven innings against the Angels on Saturday.

Hudson's only blemish was a seventh-inning solo shot from Albert Pujols. The outing extended Hudson's streak of quality starts to eight and brought his ERA down to 3.36. Both his 16.0 percent strikeout rate and 9.9 percent walk rate are rather poor, but he's gotten by thanks to a strong 61.7 percent groundball rate. He lines up to pitch again next Saturday in San Diego.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Yields three runs in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson allowed three runs on eight hits with three strikeouts and three walks across six innings during a no-decision against the Mets on Sunday.

The Cardinals and Mets went back and forth early in this one, but the game was tied when Hudson departed. Hudson allowed three runs in the first three innings, but he settled down to face just one over the minimum during his final three frames. Hudson is now 5-3 with a 3.55 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 54 strikeouts in 78.2 innings this season. He is scheduled to pitch next against the Angels at home Friday.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Earns fifth win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (5-3) allowed one earned run on four hits and two walks while striking out six across seven innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Marlins.

Hudson shut down the Marlins, not allowing an extra-base hit across his seven innings of work. It was his longest start of the season and only the third time he surpassed five strikeouts in an outing. Hudson also showed notable improvement with his control of the strike zone after walking seven batters across his last 12.1 innings entering Tuesday's start, beginning 19 of the 28 batters he faced with a strike. Through 72.2 innings, Hudson has a 3.47 ERA, but a 1.50 WHIP and 51:33 K:BB suggest that mark could be on the rise without skill improvement. His next start is scheduled for Sunday at the Mets.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Turns in quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson gave up one run on five hits and four walks while striking out three over 6.1 innings in Thursday's no-decision against the Reds.

Hudson cruised through the first three innings before allowing his only run on a sacrifice fly to left field in the fourth. The 24-year-old right-hander has been rock-solid recently, holding opposing teams to two or fewer runs in each of his last four outings. He owns a 3.70 ERA with a 45:31 K:BB over 65.2 frames following Thursday's quality start.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Confirmed for Thursday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson will start Thursday's game against the Reds.

Hudson was scheduled to toe the rubber Wednesday before the contest was postponed due to inclement weather. The Cardinals simply elected to push all their starters back a day, so Hudson won't have his turn in the rotation skipped. The right-hander owns a 3.94 ERA, 1.58 WHIP and 42:27 K:BB across 59.1 innings this season.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Wednesday's game postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson won't make his scheduled start Wednesday against the Reds after the game was postponed due to inclement weather, Jenifer Langosch of MLB.com reports.

Hudson may simply be pushed back a day to start Thursday versus the Reds, but the Cardinals have yet to announce their adjusted plans for the starting rotation.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Another strong start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (4-3) allowed one earned run on four hits and three walks while striking out four across six innings to earn the win Thursday against the Phillies.

Hudson's chief blemish came in the fourth inning, when he allowed two of the first three batters he faced to reach base, though he escaped major damage. His skills weren't fantastic as he started only nine of the 23 batters he faced with a strike and generated only seven swinging strikes. Still, he worked efficiently -- needing only 82 pitches to record 18 outs -- and has now turned in four consecutive quality starts. He'll need to improve on his 4.10 BB/9 to maintain these strong results, with his next chance scheduled to come Wednesday against Cincinnati.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Delivers quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson allowed two runs on five hits and two walks across 6.1 innings during Saturday's 6-3 win over the Braves. He struck out two but did not factor in the decision.

Hudson exited with a 2-1 lead and a runner on third with one out in the sixth, but Carlos Martinez was unable to prevent the run from scoring. It was a fairly quick hook by manager Mike Shildt since Hudson ended up throwing only 74 pitches. The 24-year-old has three straight quality starts and a 4.22 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 38:24 K:BB this season. Hudson lines up to pitch against the Cubs next weekend.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Notches win with quality start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (3-3) earned the win against the Rangers on Saturday by allowing two runs on five hits over six innings. He struck out five and walked two.

Hudson's only hiccup of the day came during the fifth inning, when the Rangers scratched across two runs with a single, double and walk. The 24-year-old has now delivered a quality start in three of his last four outings after failing to achieve one through his first six starts of the year. Hudson has a 4.40 ERA, 1.70 WHIP and 36:22 K:BB and lines up to face the Braves next weekend.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Delivers quality outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson allowed three runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out two over six innings Sunday in a no-decision.

Hudson got off to a shaky start while surrendering three runs in the first inning, but he settled down with five scoreless frames afterward. The right-hander has faced some tough luck of late, picking up two straight losses entering the day despite surrendering just three earned runs over that stretch, and the bullpen let him down Sunday by coughing up a 6-3 lead in the seventh inning. Hudson is 2-3 with a 4.61 ERA and 31 punchouts over 41 innings this year.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Hit hard by Phillies
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (2-3) allowed eight runs (two earned) on seven hits and three walks while striking out three across five innings to take the loss Tuesday against the Phillies.

The biggest blow against Hudson came on a grand slam hit by Bryce Harper in the second inning. However, those runs weren't earned after two consecutive throwing errors by the defense behind him partially fueled the offensive outburst. After the disastrous frame, Hudson did manage to pitch deeper into the game prior to allowing two earned runs in the fifth inning, ending his night. He's now managed to pitch more than five innings in just two of his seven starts this season and has an ugly 4.63 ERA and 1.77 WHIP across 35 innings.
