But the 38-year-old veteran pitcher has been encouraged by the fact that approximately 10 teams have already contacted him. The Royals and Indians are the clubs that have shown the most interest so far.
Hudson is coming off a shortened 2013 season where he suffered an ankle fracture in a freak injury at first base. Still, despite that, the few starts Hudson did get in were very solid and it marked the seventh straight season and 13 of 14 where Hudson did not finish the season with an ERA at 4.00 or above.
Hudson shouldn’t be overly expensive and given his track record, he could be one of the best bargain pickups in free agency.
