Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Strikes out two in no-decision
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson permitted three runs on three hits and four walks while striking out two over three innings in a no-decision against the Cubs on Saturday.

Hudson ran into trouble right away, allowing three first-inning runs on two bases-loaded walks and a sacrifice fly. The 25-year-old then steadied and kept the Cubs off the board in the second and third innings before being removed for a pinch hitter after 62 pitches. Hudson still has a solid 3.45 ERA and 126 strikeouts through 31 starts and the right-hander is scheduled to make his next start Friday at home against these same Cubs.

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

Hudson (16-7) gave up two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out one through seven innings to earn the win over the Nationals on Monday.

Hudson generated six swinging strikes and 18 called strikes in the quality start. Hudson continues to keep the ball on the ground, getting 57 percent of his outs from the groundball. The 25-year-old has a 3.35 ERA with 124 strikeouts through 30 starts this season. Hudson is scheduled to make his next start Saturday against the Cubs at Wrigley Field.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Walks five in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (15-7) was charged with the loss against the Rockies on Wednesday, allowing two runs on four hits and five walks while striking out seven across six innings.

Despite the loss, Hudson turned in a quality start at homer-happy Coors Field, although his five free passes allowed tied a season high. The right-hander held the Rockies to one run until the fifth inning, when Ian Desmond took him deep with a solo homer. The long ball was just the second given up by Hudson over his last 45 innings pitched. The 24-year-old will look to remain in the win column as he brings a 3.38 ERA, 1.41 WHIP and 121:75 into a Monday matchup against the Nationals.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Six shutout innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (15-6) allowed one hit and two walks while striking out two across six scoreless innings to earn the win Thursday against the Giants.

The lone hit Hudson allowed came on a single by Kevin Pillar in the second frame, but he went to retire eight consecutive Giants until walking Brandon Crawford to lead off the fifth inning. Hudson generated 10 of his 18 outs via groundball, a skill he's leaned on throughout the season. Hudson has now turned in a scoreless effort in four of his last five outings, lowering his ERA from 4.01 to 3.40 in that span. He'll look to keep that run going in his next start, but will be in a tough environment Tuesday at Coors Field.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Improves to 14-6
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (14-6) earned the win in the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against the Reds, allowing four runs on four hits and two walks while striking out eight over 7.2 innings.

Hudson shut down the Reds for most of the afternoon, outpitching Trevor Bauer by a wide margin. His final line was marred in the eighth inning when Giovanny Gallegos allowed three inherited runners to score on a Tucker Barnhart double. Hudson's season-long WHIP remains an eyesore, but he's arguably pitching the best he has all year heading into September. Hudson stands a good chance to keep his four-game winning streak going with a home start against San Francisco next on the docket.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Start postponed
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson won't make his scheduled start Friday against the Reds due to inclement weather, Rob Rains of StLSportsPage.com reports.

The Cardinals will play a doubleheader Saturday, and the team has since announced that Hudson will take the mound for Game 1.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Extends scoreless streak
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (13-6) picked up the win in Saturday's 6-0 victory over the Rockies, giving up two hits and three walks over six scoreless innings while striking out two.

The right-hander continues to stifle opposition offenses without being particularly dominant. Hudson now has an 18.2-inning scoreless streak over his last three starts, but his 13:9 K:BB during that stretch suggests he's been as much lucky as good. He'll take a 3.47 ERA into his next outing Friday, at home against the Reds.

Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Fires 6.2 hitless innings
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Hudson (12-6) issued four walks over 6.2 scoreless frames Monday, striking out seven and earning the win over Milwaukee.

Hudson exited the game after throwing 111 pitches (64 strikes) despite working on a no-hitter. With two outs in the eighth, Giovanny Gallegos allowed a double to Yasmani Grandal, ending the team's no-hit bid. Hudson's ERA has dropped from 4.01 to 3.63 in his last two outings; he's combined for 12.2 scoreless innings during that span. Still, his 104:63 K:BB is a bit of a long-term concern. The 6-foot-5 rookie will look for his third straight win Saturday as St. Louis will host the Rockies.

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.

July 6, 2019 01:08 PM
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.

June 22, 2019 08:36 PM
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.
