Hudson, who is coming off a broken ankle suffered in a freak injury has become one of the most coveted names on the market and now the Baltimore Orioles are reportedly interested in the right hander:
I’ve heard that the Orioles are intrigued by Hudson, 38, and have discussed him internally. He’s viewed as the type of pitcher that they’re looking for, someone with a winning background who could give them innings.
Hudson has spent the past nine seasons in Atlanta. The Orioles hired Braves minor league pitching coordinator Dave Wallace as their pitching coach. Chiti was a special assistant to Braves general manager Frank Wren.
Despite his age, Hudson has continued to perform at a high level and considering the market for pitching, he comes relatively affordable as teams won’t have to commit to a long term deal with Hudson.
All in all, there aren’t many better buys on the free agent market considering the talent for price, which is why so many teams are doing what they can to sign Hudson.
