  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Sent back to minors

    The Cardinals optioned Hudson to Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday.

    Hudson was dropped from the 28-man active roster after he was tagged for seven earned runs over nine hits and two walks Tuesday in his spot start Tuesday against the Pirates. His demotion will preclude him from being a part of the Cardinals' roster for the team's upcoming wild-card series with the Phillies.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Disappoints Tuesday

    Hudson allowed seven runs on nine hits and two walks while striking out one in 2.2 innings in an 8-7 extra-inning victory Tuesday in Pittsburgh. He did not factor into the decision.

    Hudson was recalled from Triple-A Memphis to start Tuesday's game and struggled from the start. After allowing the first two batters to reach safely, consecutive groundouts led to a run in the first. He retired the side in order in the second but fell apart in the third as he faced 11 batters and six runs scored before he was removed with two outs. It was a disappointing end to a frustrating season that included losing his spot in the starting rotation and being relegated to the minors for parts of September.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Getting start Tuesday

    Hudson is scheduled to start Tuesday's game in Pittsburgh, Rick Hummel of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch reports.

    Since being called up from Triple-A Memphis on Sept. 21, Hudson has made one three-inning appearance out of the bullpen, which came back on Sept. 24. He's likely kept himself stretched out through side sessions and simulated games, so he should be in store for a relatively normal start despite his prolonged idle period. If Hudson performs well Tuesday, he could have a case for a spot in the Cardinals' bullpen during the postseason.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Pitches out of bullpen Saturday

    Hudson tossed three scoreless innings out of the bullpen in Saturday's 6-2 loss to the Dodgers. He didn't strike out a batter and allowed two hits and one walk in the 45-pitch appearance.

    When Hudson was recalled from Triple-A Memphis on Wednesday, manager Oliver Marmol hinted the right-hander could rejoin the rotation, according to John Denton of The Cardinals ultimately chose to keep a five-man rotation intact, but Hudson was still called upon to provide some length out of the bullpen after starter Jordan Montgomery lasted just four innings in Saturday's outing. With two off days during the upcoming week, Hudson will likely remain in the bullpen, but he could make a spot start at some point in the final few days of the regular season if the Cardinals want to give Jack Flaherty or Adam Wainwright a more extended break in advance of the playoffs.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: May join rotation

    Manager Oliver Marmol said Hudson may officially join the Cardinals' rotation, John Denton of reports.

    Any move into the rotation for Hudson would be made with the intention of affording Adam Wainwright longer periods of rest between starts. Hudson's most recent start came Saturday, when he threw eight innings and gave up one unearned run while earning his eighth win of the season.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Stellar in win

    Hudson (8-7) won the first game of Saturday's doubleheader versus the Reds. He allowed an unearned run on six hits and two walks while striking out five over eight innings.

    Hudson's lone blemish came in the seventh inning, though it was his own error that ultimately led to the run. Beyond that one small hiccup, Hudson looked spectacular in his first major-league appearance since Aug. 30. The right-hander has struggled with consistency this year, and he now has a 4.16 ERA, 1.40 WHIP and 77:58 K:BB across 134 innings through 25 starts. Hudson was up as the 29th man for Saturday's twin bill, so it's unclear if he'll stick in the big leagues or if he'll head back to Triple-A Mmephis after an impressive outing. If he does stay in the majors, it's uncertain if the Cardinals would keep him in a six-man rotation or use him as a multi-inning reliever.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Serving as 29th man

    Hudson was recalled from Triple-A Memphis to serve as the 29th man during Saturday's doubleheader against the Reds.

    Hudson was sent to the minors Sept. 5 but will start the first game of Saturday's twin bill. Over five major-league starts in August, he posted a 5.76 ERA and 1.68 WHIP in 25 innings.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Starting in Saturday's twin bill

    Hudson is expected be called up as the 29th man to start a game in Saturday's doubleheader against the Reds, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    The right-hander was demoted to Triple-A Memphis last week and is poised to rejoin the Cardinals after only one outing in the minors. Hudson has a 4.43 ERA, 1.42 WHIP and 72:56 K:BB across 126 innings this season and is likely to return to Memphis after the spot start.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Sent packing to minors

    The Cardinals optioned Hudson to Triple-A Memphis on Monday.

    Hudson was moved to the bullpen over the weekend in anticipation of Jack Flaherty's (shoulder) return from the 60-day injured list to start Monday's series opener with the Nationals. With St. Louis now officially activating Flaherty, Hudson will end up losing his spot in the bullpen, as the Cardinals already had multiple pitchers capable of covering multiple innings in relief as necessary. Despite receiving the demotion, Hudson likely won't have to wait long before getting another look with the big club. According to Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat, Hudson is scheduled to make his first start with Memphis on Tuesday and another on Sunday before he likely rejoins St. Louis when a sixth starter is needed for the team's Sept. 17 doubleheader with the Reds.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Moving to bullpen

    Hudson will be available out of the bullpen, Jeff Jones of the Belleville News-Democrat reports.

    Hudson is the odd man out in the rotation with Jack Flaherty set to return from a shoulder injury Monday. Hudson owns a 4.43 ERA on the season, striking out just 13.5 percent of opposing batters while walking 10.5 percent, so he's unlikely to pitch many high-leverage innings.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Allows 10 baserunners in loss

    Hudson (7-7) took the loss Tuesday in Cincinnati, allowing five runs on nine hits and a walk while striking out two in 4.2 innings.

    Hudson ran into trouble in the third inning as the first five batters recorded hits, scoring four runs. He had similar struggles in the fifth when the first three hitters singled, leading to one more run. It marked the fifth time in his last six starts that he pitched five or fewer innings. In August he has a 5.76 ERA, 1.68 WHIP and 18:12 K:BB in 25 innings across five starts. With Jack Flaherty (shoulder) expected to return next week, Hudson may be bumped from the rotation.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Seven strong innings

    Hudson (7-6) allowed two earned runs on five hits and two walks while striking out four across seven innings to earn the win Thursday against the Cubs.

    Hudson gave up a run in each of the second and third innings, but he otherwise shut down the Cubs on the basis of 10 groundball outs. He also generated 12 swinging strikes on 97 total pitches, an impressive mark given his typically contact-heavy approach. The strong outing marked Hudson's first quality start in his last four starts and it was also the first time he completed six innings in that same span. For the season, he owns a 4.23 ERA and 70:55 K:BB across 121.1 frames.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Falls just short of win

    Hudson didn't factor into the decision during Saturday's 16-7 win over Arizona, allowing four runs on five hits and three walks with four strikeouts in 4.1 innings.

    Hudson surrendered two runs apiece in the first and third innings, but St. Louis rallied to put him in line for his first win in seven turns had he gone the minimum five innings. The 27-year-old continues to struggle with control as he tossed only 45 of 77 pitches for strikes and has walked multiple batters in six of his last seven turns. Hudson carries a 4.33 ERA and 1.42 WHIP into his next start, scheduled for next week against the Cubs.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Next start set for Saturday

    Hudson is scheduled to make his next start Saturday in Arizona against the Diamondbacks, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    Hudson was initially lined up to start Wednesday at home versus the Rockies, but the Cardinals used Monday's off day to push the right-hander to the back of the rotation. The Cardinals want Hudson to use the extra time off to adjust his approach against left-handed hitters during a pair of bullpen sessions. He sports a bloated 10.8 percent walk rate for the season, and 32 of the 50 free passes he's issued have come against lefties.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Won't start Wednesday

    The Cardinals will skip Hudson's scheduled turn through the rotation Wednesday against the Rockies, Katie Woo of The Athletic reports.

    St. Louis has a scheduled day off Monday and has decided to adjust the rotation. Hudson missed a couple weeks in July with a neck strain and has a 4.73 ERA, 1.73 WHIP and 9:8 K:BB across 13.1 innings since returning from the injured list. The Cardinals will require a fifth starter next weekend in Arizona, and it remains to be seen if Hudson is called upon at that point.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Punches out six in no-decision

    Hudson allowed two runs on four hits and four walks while striking out six across five innings during an 8-6 loss Thursday in Colorado. He did not factor into the decision.

    Hudson juxtaposed wildness with timely double plays and limited the damage to only two runs. After getting a double-play groundball in the second, he walked the next two batters on eight pitches before giving up a two-run double to Brian Serven. Even though 10 of the 21 batters he faced either walked or struck out, Hudson did not tally up a high pitch count and completed five frames after throwing 75 pitches. The 26-year-old has tossed five or fewer innings in seven of his last nine starts. His next outing will likely be in the middle of next week in a rematch versus Colorado.

  • Cardinals' Dakota Hudson: Lasts four innings Friday

    Hudson allowed three runs on seven hits and two walks while striking out two in four innings in a no-decision versus the Yankees on Friday.

    Manager Oli Marmol wasn't pleased with Hudson's tempo, and Katie Woo of The Athletic reports the right-hander's spot in the rotation could be at risk. Hudson threw 47 of 78 pitches for strikes, while Andre Pallante -- his potential replacement in the rotation -- also covered four innings on 65 pitches (37 strikes) to earn the win Friday. Hudson owns a 4.20 ERA, 1.39 WHIP and 56:46 K:BB through 105 innings across 20 starts this year, but he's been worse with 15 runs allowed in 25 innings since the start of July. It's unclear whether the right-hander would move to the bullpen or get sent down to Triple-A Memphis if he loses his starting role. Either Hudson or Pallante figures to handle a difficult road start in Colorado next week.
