Daniel Hudson, on his third team in three months, joins Dodgers’ bullpen

first_img“There was actually some mutual interest when I was a free agent after 2016 going into ’17 but the timing didn’t work out quite right,” he said. “When they called and kind of sat me down and explained some stuff to me and mapped out what they were thinking, it just kind of seemed like a no-brainer to me.”To make room for Hudson, the Dodgers optioned Walker Buehler to Class-A Rancho Cucamonga. It’s a procedural move that allows the Dodgers to keep Buehler in California until his turn in the rotation comes up Saturday in San Francisco.Because Saturday is a doubleheader – including the makeup game of an April 6 rainout – the Dodgers and Giants will be allowed to carry 26 players on their roster that day. The 26th player will not be subject to the usual restriction preventing teams from recalling a player less than 10 days after he was optioned to the minor leagues.HILL HEALINGRich Hill threw 58 pitches in a simulated game at Dodger Stadium, his first time throwing to live batters since going on the disabled list. The left-hander last pitched April 14, then was sidelined by a cut on the tip of his left middle finger.The cut has since healed, and Hill is slated to start Monday in Phoenix. If his simulated game was any indication, Hill should be ready by then.“Four innings, lot of strikes, good changeups, good curveballs, good fastballs and good feedbacks from swings,” he said.ROTATION PLANSWith Hill returning Monday, the Dodgers have their rotation in place for the next week.After Clayton Kershaw faces the Marlins in Wednesday’s series finale, Hyun-Jin Ryu will face the Giants in San Francisco on Friday.Buehler is expected to face the Giants in the early game of Saturday’s doubleheader, but Roberts is not ready to make that official. Alex Wood will pitch Saturday’s second game and Kenta Maeda will start Sunday.ALSOYimi Garcia, who remains on a rehab assignment at Triple-A Oklahoma City, might not be in the mix for a major league bullpen spot until May. “We just kind of are sensitive to having two years off and to check all the boxes, to then have him ready and finish the season without restrictions,” Roberts said. “Next month sometime is feasible.” … Garcia had Tommy John surgery in July 2016 and did not return to the mound until spring training. … Logan Forsythe (right shoulder inflammation) made enough progress in his rehab to begin making throws from third base.UP NEXTDodgers (LHP Clayton Kershaw, 1-3, 2.45 ERA) vs. Marlins (RHP Trevor Richards, 0-2, 6.16 ERA), Wednesday, 4:35 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available) “It was kind of crazy thinking you had a place in Pittsburgh, getting traded two weeks in,” he said. “The day before games started I got a call and had to drive down to Port Charlotte and get situated with a new organization, guys I never met before. It was just a little bit of an adjustment period. Right before camp broke, I was told I wasn’t going to make the team.“Like I said, I went from having a spot going into spring training, trying to work on things, to being told you might not make the squad. You go from there right into compete mode, and things kind of got out of whack a couple outings. It is what it is, but I’m excited to be here and looking forward to a new chapter.”The Dodgers saw a lot of Hudson from 2011-16 when he pitched for the Arizona Diamondbacks. His time in Phoenix was interrupted by two Tommy John surgeries. After the second procedure in 2013, Hudson successfully transitioned from the rotation to the bullpen.Roberts compared Hudson’s repertoire to that of Dodgers right-hander J.T. Chargois. His four-seam fastball still runs in the mid- to upper-90s and is complemented by a slider and a changeup.Hudson said the Dodgers courted him once before. LOS ANGELES — Daniel Hudson made 71 appearances out of the Pittsburgh Pirates’ bullpen last year. That wasn’t quite enough to lead the team, but it was enough to make a man feel wanted.The last couple months have been jarring.On Feb. 22, the Pirates traded Hudson to the Tampa Bay Rays as part of the Corey Dickerson trade. On March 28, Hudson was released. Five days later, he signed with the Dodgers. Until Tuesday, he’d worn the uniform of the Triple-A Oklahoma City club.Now the Dodgers have the luxury of carrying a nine-man bullpen and four starting pitchers. Hudson, a 31-year-old right-hander, became the team’s ninth reliever when he was added to the roster from Oklahoma City.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
