  • Rockies' Dakota Hudson: Falls to 0-3 with loss in Toronto

    Hudson (0-3) took the loss to the Blue Jays on Saturday, allowing five runs on five hits and three walks while striking out five over six innings.

    All of the damage was done in the first inning, with the big blow being a grand slam off the bat of Daulton Varsho. Hudson settled in from there and now has a respectable 4.15 ERA and 1.27 WHIP through 17.1 innings this season, though he's made just one of his three starts so far at the notoriously hitter-friendly Coors Field. He should be considered a volatile and risky option given his lack of whiffs.

  • Rockies' Dakota Hudson: Quality start in loss

    Hudson (0-2) got the loss after he pitched six innings, surrendering three runs on seven hits and a walk while striking out four batters in Sunday's 3-2 defeat to the Rays.

    Hudson wasn't as sharp as he was in his season opener, allowing eight batters to reach base Sunday, but ultimately he was able to keep the damage limited. The Rays scratched across two runs in the second inning and then one more in the third frame and after that, Hudson tossed three shutout innings to finish his outing. The right-hander has now produced a 2.38 ERA with six punchouts over 11.1 innings in his first two starts of the 2024 campaign. His next outing is tentatively set to come Saturday on the road against the Blue Jays.

  • Rockies' Dakota Hudson: Pitches well in defeat

    Hudson (0-1) allowed three runs (zero earned) on four hits and two walks over 5.1 innings to suffer the defeat Monday against the Cubs. He struck out two.

    Hudson allowed just three baserunners and no runs through five innings while matching Shota Imanaga pitch-for-pitch. He then ran into some trouble in the sixth when, with two men on and one out, he allowed a single to Christopher Morel that would have loaded the bases. However, a fielding error followed by a throwing error by left-fielder Nolan Jones led to a little-league home run with all three runs crossing the plate and Hudson's day coming to an end with a tough-luck loss. Hudson is tentatively scheduled to next take the hill this weekend in his first home start as a member of the Rockies against the Rays.

  • Rockies' Dakota Hudson: Making first start Monday

    Hudson is listed as the Rockies' probable starting pitcher for Monday's series opener in Chicago versus the Cubs.

    Signed to a one-year, $1.5 million deal in January after being non-tendered by the Cardinals earlier in the offseason, Hudson was able to secure a spot in Colorado's Opening Day rotation, though he didn't face much in the way of quality competition for a spot. He was solid if unspectacular over his five Cactus League starts, posting a 4.20 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 13:7 K:BB in 15 innings in mostly hitter-friendly venues in Arizona. Hudson's career-long 55.1 percent groundball rate could set him up for more success in the high altitude of Colorado than a typical power pitcher, but he was never a major ERA or WHIP asset during parts of six big-league seasons in St. Louis. The 29-year-old should be viewed mostly as an NL-only option, and a low-upside one at that given the weak ratios he's posted throughout his career.

  • Rockies' Dakota Hudson: Competing for rotation spot

    Hudson is competing for a rotation spot with Ryan Feltner, Peter Lambert, Ty Blach and Noah Davis this spring, Thomas Harding of reports.

    The Rockies signed Hudson to a one-year, $1.5 million contract this offseason. He's worked primarily as a starter throughout his career, though did pitch out of the bullpen with the Cardinals to close the 2023 campaign. Hudson has struggled significantly the last two seasons, posting a 1.45 and 1.50 WHIP, respectively. He made his spring debut Thursday and allowed a hit and two walks across a scoreless inning.

  • Rockies' Dakota Hudson: Signs with Rox

    Hudson signed a one-year contract with the Rockies on Friday, Thomas Harding of reports.

    Hudson was non-tendered by the Cardinals earlier in the offseason after putting up a 4.64 ERA and 1.47 WHIP with a 123:95 K:BB across the past two seasons. Signing with the Rockies should ensure Hudson remains part of a major-league rotation, but having to pitch his home games at Coors Field likely won't help his subpar statline.

  • Dakota Hudson: Dumped by St. Louis

    Hudson became a free agent Friday after being non-tendered by the Cardinals.

    Hudson posted a 3.14 ERA over his first 249.2 major-league innings between 2018-21, but he's struggled to a 4.64 ERA in 221 innings since the beginning of the 2022 campaign while continuing to show diminishing fastball velocity. The 29-year-old right-hander had been projected to make about $3.7 million in 2024 via salary arbitration.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Allows three runs in loss

    Hudson (6-3) gave up three runs on seven hits and three walks across five innings in Thursday's 3-0 loss to the Brewers. He struck out three.

    Hudson once again had trouble keeping traffic off the basepaths, allowing two of his runs on singles to William Contreras and Christian Yelich. His struggles with the free pass continued, as the right-hander has now allowed three walks in four of his last five games. He finishes the season with a 4.98 ERA and 1.50 WHIP across 81.1 innings, with 45 strikeouts.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Avoids disaster Friday

    Hudson allowed two runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out two over six innings in a no-decision versus the Padres.

    Hudson threw 52 of 84 pitches for strikes and uncorked two wild pitches, but he avoided significant damage despite the heavy traffic he put on the bases. He's posted quality starts in two of his five outings in September and has given up just two home runs over 27.1 innings on the month. For the season, Hudson has a 4.95 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 42:31 K:BB through 76.1 innings over 17 appearances (11 starts). He's lined up for a road outing in Milwaukee next week to wrap up his season.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Modest effort in no-decision

    Hudson allowed three runs on five hits and three walks while striking out three over five innings Sunday against the Phillies. He did not factor into the decision.

    Hudson allowed just one hit through the first three innings, but the Phillies finally got to him with three runs in the fourth. Shockingly enough, Hudson's three strikeouts were his most in a start since he had seven Aug. 20. He had just five strikeouts in his previous four starts and has only managed to reach six innings once in his last six starts. The 28-year-old is up to a 5.12 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 40:30 K:BB in 70.1 innings. He's projected to face the Padres on the road in his next outing.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Blasted for seven runs

    Hudson (6-2) took the loss Monday, allowing seven runs on eight hits and three walks over 4.1 innings against the Orioles. He struck out two.

    Hudson entered the bottom of the fifth with a 5-3 lead and a chance to put himself in position for the victory but recorded only one out while allowing a run and loading the bases prior to being pulled. Andre Pallante replaced Hudson and promptly allowed a grand slam to Cedric Mullins, which closed the door on Hudson's outing and the Cardinals' chances. Hudson has now allowed five or more runs in three of his last four starts. His next chance for redemption is scheduled to come this weekend in a tough home matchup with the Phillies.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Earns win despite rough finish

    Hudson (6-1) earned the win over Atlanta on Wednesday, allowing five runs on seven hits and three walks while striking out two batters over five innings.

    Hudson was staked to an early 6-0 lead before yielding two runs in the fourth inning. He was still ahead 7-2 entering the sixth but couldn't record an out in that frame, allowing four straight baserunners -- three of whom crossed the plate -- before his departure. Hudson nonetheless collected the win, his fifth over his past seven outings. He's settled into a spot in the Cardinals' rotation and should remain there for the rest of the campaign, as he's posted a passable 4.54 ERA and 1.25 WHIP over 41.2 innings across seven starts since the beginning of August.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Goes seven strong Friday

    Hudson did not factor into the decision Friday, tossing seven innings and giving up one run on three hits and two walks in the Cardinals' 4-2 extra-inning loss to the Pirates.

    Hudson gave up an RBI double to Alfonso Rivas in the top of the second inning, but he went unscathed the rest of the way. The right-hander matched his longest outing of the season at seven frames and he has recorded three quality starts over his last six outings. Hudson owns a respectable 4.02 ERA and 1.30 WHIP with 33 strikeouts over 56 innings in 13 starts this season.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Takes first loss

    Hudson (5-1) allowed five runs on six hits and five walks while striking out one batter over 5.2 innings in a loss to Philadelphia on Saturday.

    Hudson came into the contest having won each of his previous four starts, but he couldn't continue that streak against the Phillies. The right-hander made it through two scoreless frames, but Philadelphia tagged him for at least one run in each of the remaining innings in which he pitched. The five total runs Hudson allowed tied a campaign-high mark, and Saturday was the first time he's issued more than three walks in an outing this season. Despite a 5-1 record, Hudson's 4.41 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 33:19 K:BB over 49 innings make him far from a reliable fantasy asset.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Remains undefeated Sunday

    Hudson (5-0) got the win Sunday over the Mets after allowing two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out seven over 5.1 innings.

    Hudson surrendered a run in the third and then was punished by a Pete Alonso long ball in the fourth to put the Mets up 2-1. He wound up departing the game in line for the win after the Cardinals went up 3-2 in the fifth. Hudson tied a season-high with seven strikeouts and it was his fourth consecutive start allowing three or fewer earned runs. The one knock on Hudson is he's allowed at least one home run in each of his last four starts but has otherwise been the Cardinals' most consistent pitcher. He now owns a 3.95 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 32:14 K:BB in 43.1 innings (five starts) and will look to pick up his fifth consecutive win in a weekend road matchup with the Phillies.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Keeps rolling Tuesday

    Hudson (4-0) allowed two runs on five hits and a walk while striking out three over 6.2 innings to earn the win Tuesday over the Athletics.

    Hudson has won all three of his starts since moving into the rotation, posting a 3.86 ERA and 12:5 K:BB over 18.2 innings in that span. While far from dominant, he's provided stable innings for a Cardinals rotation that has struggled with consistency all year. The right-hander is now at a 4.03 ERA, 1.32 WHIP and 25:12 K:BB through 38 innings over 10 appearances (four starts) this season. Hudson is tentatively projected for a home start against the Mets over the weekend.

    Hudson's now 2-0 in two starts since rejoining St. Louis' rotation while allowing six runs over 12 innings. Overall, the 28-year-old Hudson sports a 4.31 ERA with a 1.40 WHIP and 22:11 K:BB across 31.1 innings this season. He's lined up for a home matchup with thhe A's in his next outing.
