San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson (ankle) threw a spring-high 78 pitches Wednesday, March 25, completing six innings, giving up three runs on six hits. Hudson is still trying to build up arm strength as he recovers from right ankle surgery. He's likely lined up to be the fourth starter for the Giants.
Fantasy Tip: Hudson ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) isn't a source of many strikeouts, but he's a good late-round pick for his positive contributions in ERA and WHIP.

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson (ankle) said his ankle feels great, and there were no setbacks during his eight-week rehab.
Fantasy Tip: Hudson's age (39) and lack of strikeouts (5.7 K/9 over the past three seasons) will drive his fantasy stock down. However, the veteran can still help in three categories, and especially WHIP. He has a 1.18 mark over his last 943 1/3 innings pitched spanning five seasons. His home ball park doesn't hurt, either. Consider Hudson a low-risk, late-round option on draft day.

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson (ankle) can be ready for his first turn in the rotation to start the regular season, according to manager Bruce Bochy.
Fantasy Tip: This will likely be Hudson's final year of his career. After posting his first losing record of his career last season, there's not much left in the tank for the 39-year-old. Bochy is likely being optimistic on Hudson's timetable. Hudson can be an innings-eater for fantasy squads, but his really only useful in NL-only leagues for now.

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson (ankle), who is working his way back from surgery in early January to have bone spurs removed from his right ankle, is scheduled for his first spring mound session Wednesday, Feb. 25. Hudson is happy with his progress and said his ankle is feeling pretty good. Hudson said he's a bit behind but further along than he was last year in spring.
Fantasy Tip: A 39-year-old coming off surgery really shouldn't any fantasy baseball drafters. He also posted his first losing season last year and had an ERA of 3.57. Hudson can be an innings-eater during the year if he's healthy, but he's best left to the waiver wire in standard 12-team leagues for now.

San Francisco Giants SP Tim Hudson (ankle) is behind in his preseason preparation because of his right ankle surgery, according to manager Bruce Bochy. However, SPs Ryan Vogelsong or Gregorio Petit could step in for Hudson if needed.
Fantasy Tip: At Hudson's age (39), we wouldn't be surprised at all if he's not ready for the regular season. Vogelsong and Petit could easily be asked to take over for Hudson during the year, too, if he's not performing up to standards. Hudson should be left to the waiver wire in standard leagues.
