Arizona Diamondbacks Roster Review: Daniel Hudson

By Scott Allen

So the mourning period for the Arizona Diamondbacks 2011 season is over. The postseason is finally over as well and now it is time to start looking ahead to 2012, especially since the season starts in like 18 seconds. It’s a short off-season. We are just shy of four months till pitchers and catchers report. So it is time to review the current roster, look at what they did in 2011 and what the prospects are for 2012. Next up: Daniel Hudson

2011 review:   Take out the first inning of his starts in 2011, the conversation on Hudson might be a little different.  That being said, Hudson still had a decent sophomore season with the Dbacks.  Hudson went 16-12 with a 3.49 ERA that truly could and should have been better.  He was also an asset at the plate, hitting .277 with 1 home run and 14 RBI.

2012 preview: Definitely still the number two in the rotation heading into next season.  If Hudson can get the upper hand on his early inning troubles, he could probably hit the 20-win mark and reduce his ERA to the 3.00 mark or even lower.
