The 38-year-old is 7-6 with a 2.87 Age in 18 starts. Hes thrown seven or more innings with 11 of those outings and has allowed two earned extends or fewer 13 periods. This marks the fourth All-Star choice for Hudson, and his first since 2010 (2000 and 2004 have been the others). Not bad for a expert whose 2013 campaign resulted in agony with a broken foot while covering first platform.
Hes been very solid for us this first half, catcher Reliever Posey said after the teams 8-4 triumph Sunday. Its good to see a gentleman thats towards the end of the career getting a chance to try this again.
Manager Bruce Bochy anticipated getting a pitcher thatd consistently give the The big boys a chance to win, so this individual hasnt been too surprised by Hudsons accomplishment. Hudsons still been better than they had expected, though. Same is true for the ankle, which Bochy said is no longer a concern after some early-season discomfort.
I think hes even surpassed those, Bochy said from the teams expectations for Hudson, because in many these outings, hes recently been so good.
Added Bumgarner, who will be unavailable for the All-Star Game after starting Sundays online game: Everybody knew how good of your pickup it was going to be. He / she definitely hasnt disappointed in addition to deserves to go as much as anyone, if not more. Im happy to see him going there. He has been earned it.
