Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: X-rays come back negative
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson's X-rays came back negative after exiting Thursday night's game against the Pirates due to right elbow soreness, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Hudson has received good news so far, though he'll likely be re-evaluated within the next few days to determine his status moving forward. His absence would be a big blow for the Cardinals, as he owns a 2.92 ERA and 0.97 WHIP with 31 strikeouts over 37 frames so far this year.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Exits early with injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson left Thursday's game against the Pirates due to right elbow tightness, Kevin Gorman of reports.

Hudson made it through two scoreless innings before being removed from the contest. He'll likely undergo further testing before the Cardinals release more information on the injury.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Allows one run in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (3-2) pitched six innings of one-run ball, allowing a hit and four walks while striking out four in a win over the Reds on Saturday.

Hudson was excellent in the start, outside of allowing a run via three walks and a fielder's choice in the third inning. The lone hit against Hudson was a Joey Votto double in the sixth. The 25-year-old Hudson dropped his ERA to 2.92 with a 0.97 WHIP and 31 strikeouts in 37 innings this year. He's won three straight starts and will look to keep that hot run going Thursday in Pittsburgh.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Good enough to win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (2-2) gave up three runs on five hits and two walks over five innings in a win over the Cubs on Sunday. He struck out four.

The runs against Hudson came early, as Anthony Rizzo hit a solo shot in the first and Jason Kipnis added a two-run blast in the second. Hudson finished with 101 pitches (57 strikes) in a somewhat inefficient effort. The right-hander has a 3.19 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 27:9 K:BB across six starts spanning 31 innings. Hudson's next start is expected to be Friday versus the Reds.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Start bumped back
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson will start Sunday rather than starting the nightcap of Saturday's doubleheader as previously scheduled, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

Hudson will slide back into the spot that had been occupied by Kwang Hyun Kim, who landed on the injured list with a kidney issue Saturday. The Cardinals will go with a bullpen game for the second of Saturday's two contests.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Fans seven in first win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (1-2) picked up the win in Monday's 7-5 victory over the Reds, allowing two runs (one earned) on four hits over seven innings. He struck out seven without walking a batter.

It was the right-hander's best outing so far in 2020 and his second straight quality start, as Hudson set season highs in innings and strikeouts. He fired 63 of 95 pitches for strikes, and got plenty of run support to secure his first win as the Cards scored in each of the first four frames. Hudson will take a 2.77 ERA and 23:7 K:BB through 26 innings into his next start Saturday during a doubleheader against the Cubs.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Takes no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson took a no-decision during Wednesday's win over the Royals, allowing two runs on three hits and three walks while striking out three across six innings.

Aside from a two-run home run to Mac Gallagher in the third inning, Hudson managed to control the damage against Kansas City. The right-hander was easing back into things following an extended COVID-19 layoff. He did issue a season-high three free passes, something he'll need to better manage to avoid future trouble. Across four starts this season, Hudson owns a 3.32 ERA and 1.05 WHIP. The 25-year-old will take the mound against Cincinnati on Monday.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Fans six in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson allowed just one hit and two walks while striking out six over 4.2 scoreless innings in a no-decision versus the Reds on Friday.

Hudson had a good performance, but he threw only 74 pitches (49 strikeouts) and came up one out short of potentially being eligible for a result. The Reds' Matt Davidson made that a non-issue with a sixth-inning grand slam off Cardinals reliever Tyler Webb. Hudson has yet to pitch into the sixth inning this season. He has a 3.46 ERA, 1.08 WHIP and 13 strikeouts in 13 innings across three starts. The 25-year-old is expected to make his next start Wednesday versus the Royals.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Effective in short outing
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (0-2) allowed one earned run on two hits and a walk while striking out three across four innings to take the loss Sunday against the White Sox.

Hudson threw only 55 pitches after a three-week layoff in between starts. He pitched fairly well, with the only run coming in the midst of a short rally in the opening inning. Hudson also did well limiting walks in a continuation of his first outing, as he has handed out only two free passes in 8.1 innings of work after posting a 4.43 BB/9 in 2019. He should be able to work a bit deeper into the game during his next start, currently projected for Friday against Cincinnati.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Scheduled for Sunday's start
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson will start Sunday's game against the White Sox, assuming the Cardinals are cleared to resume their season this week following their team-wide COVID-19 outbreak, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

The Cardinals will go with Adam Wainwright and a bullpen game for their Saturday doubleheader should they get the green light to resume their season. St. Louis will then follow with Hudson on Sunday. The right-hander allowed four runs on seven hits and one walk over 4.1 innings pitched in his lone start against the Pirates on July 26.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Yields four runs in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (0-1) allowed four runs across 4.1 innings Sunday, striking out four batters and taking the loss against the Pirates. He walked one batter and gave up seven hits.

Hudson kept Pittsburgh's bats quiet for three innings but allowed homers to Colin Moran and Jose Osuna in the fourth inning. He coughed up one more run on a Josh Bell sacrifice fly in the fifth before being lifted from the game. Hudson will look for better results in Milwaukee against the Brewers next weekend.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Settles in during intrasquad game
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson threw 43 pitches in Thursday night's intrasquad game at Busch Stadium and settled in after a rough start, Anne Rogers of reports.

The right-hander endured his roughest stretch in the first inning, when he yielded singles to Kolten Wong, Paul Goldschmidt and Paul DeJong, the latter hit driving in two runs. Hudson appeared to find a groove after that point by not allowing another hit over the subsequent two frames, although he did issue two walks and uncorked a wild pitch. "You get to kind of experiment to figure out what works whenever you start facing guys over and over and over," Hudson said. "That's when I think it'll allow me to kind of take a step back, but also kind of gain some mental edge going forward. We're talking throughout this whole process. So someone gets a hit, I get a guy, it's a lot of back and forth. Maybe they see something, maybe I see something. We're just trying to grow and get better as we go."

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Gets live BP in Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson threw live batting practice to multiple teammates in Saturday's summer camp workout at Busch Stadium, Anne Rogers of reports.

The right-hander faced a formidable lineup of Matt Carpenter, Paul Goldschmidt, Dexter Fowler, Paul DeJong, Matt Wieters, Harrison Bader and Kolten Wong, which was a welcome departure from the throwing sessions against a pad that Hudson carried out during the three-month-plus shutdown. The 25-year-old also used his time away from the team to continue working on smoothing out his delivery, a process he'd started during the offseason in an effort to improve his command. "I feel comfortable with what I'm doing," Hudson said. " I was trying to mess with some stuff at the end of last year, and going into spring this year, I was able to show it off a little bit. From here on, I just felt like that off time was me engraving it."

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Gears up with solid spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson posted a 2-1 record, 2.92 ERA and 0.97 WHIP across 12.1 innings over four Grapefruit League appearances before spring training was suspended.

The right-hander is firmly entrenched as the No. 3 starter when the starting rotation is at full strength, and despite some control issues in his last start of spring March 8, Hudson enjoyed a productive exhibition slate overall. The 25-year-old stretched out to 74 pitches in that outing, and he'll presumably also have a ramp-up period to the regular season to complete his preparations. Hudson enjoyed a standout 2019 campaign -- his first as a full-time starter in the majors -- posting a 16-7 record and 3.35 ERA across 174.2 innings.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Maintenance plan developed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson is slated to throw at least 45 pitches in twice-a-week bullpen sessions while spring training remains suspended, Anne Rogers of reports.

Rogers reports manager Mike Shildt and his staff are in the process of setting up a maintenance program for the team's starting pitchers to follow during the suspension of spring training. The templates will be individualized to an extent for each player, but Hudson, the projected No. 3 starter, is likely to see his fall approximately within the 45-pitch, twice-a-week guideline. The right-hander had worked up to 74 pitches in his second start of Grapefruit League play last Sunday against the Marlins, but that elevated count was primarily due to control issues he experienced during his 3.2 innings of work.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Control issues as starter
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson made his second start of Grapefruit League play Sunday against the Marlins and worked up to 74 pitches due to control issues, Anne Rogers of reports.

The right-hander has made half of his four spring appearances out of the bullpen, but he stretched out plenty with the help of the three walks he issued versus Miami. Hudson still managed to strike out five -- including the side in the first inning -- and gave up just two hits during his 3.2 innings, as he was able to work out of trouble in each of his first three frames.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Mixed performance in relief
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson allowed two earned runs on three hits across 2.2 innings in a Grapefruit League loss to the Braves on Thursday. He struck out four.

The right-hander was making his second appearance of the spring, and after cruising through a pair of frames versus the Mets in his debut Saturday, Hudson wasn't anywhere near as smooth Thursday. The right-hander will work as a starter again in 2020 after posting an impressive 16-7 record and 3.35 ERA across 33 appearances last season, but the Cardinals have opted to stretch him out in long relief thus far this spring while auditioning a number of candidates for their two current vacancies in the rotation.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Slated to pitch Saturday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson is slated to pitch in Saturday's Grapefruit League opener against a Mets split squad, Christina De Nicola of reports.

Hudson is slated to slot in as the third or fourth starter in the rotation this coming season when Miles Mikolas (forearm) is healthy. Hudson will get his first turn against an opposing uniform Saturday at some point after starter Jack Flaherty exits, with Brett Cecil and Kwang-Hyun Kim also slated to log innings during the contest.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Nightmare start in NLCS clincher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (0-1) recorded just one out in Tuesday's 7-4 loss to the Nationals in Game 4 of the NLCS, yielding seven runs (four earned) on five hits and one walk. He did not record a strikeout.

Quite simply, it was a night to forget for Hudson, who was absolutely blitzed in the first inning and came out of the game after throwing only 25 pitches. He was also let down by his defense, including an error by Kolton Wong and a routine fly to right that dropped in between Wong and Jose Martinez for a hit. When it was all said and done, Hudson was rocked for two doubles, three singles, an intentional walk and a sacrifice fly before being lifted with two runners on for Adam Wainwright, who allowed both to score. Better days are ahead for the 25-year-old, who went 16-7 in his first year in the St. Louis rotation and posted a 3.35 ERA over 33 appearances (32 starts).

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Named starter for Game 4
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson will start Game 4 of the National League Championship Series against the Nationals on Tuesday, Anne Rogers of reports.

The 25-year-old will pitch in Game 4 of the NLCS after allowing four runs (one earned) off five hits and two walks while recording two strikeouts over 4.2 innings in the NLDS. Hudson carries a 3.35 ERA with a 136:86 K:BB over 32 starts in the regular season.
