Insight: The deal is worth $23 million over two seasons. Hudson had his 2013 campaign cut short because of a broken ankle. He should be ready for spring training in a few months.

Description: Numerous teams have shown interest in right-hander Tim Hudson so expect him to sign and start at the ripe old age of 38-years-old this season.
Insight: Hudson suffered a devastating ankle injury in July and wasn't able to pitch again over the remainder of the season. Hudson (8-7, 3.97 ERA, 1.19 WHIP in 21 starts) pitched well before the injury. However, he doesn't strike out enough batters to be a big-time fantasy asset.

Description: The Braves would like to retain Tim Hudson in free agency this offseason. SOURCE: David O'Brien, Atlanta Journal-Constitution
Insight: Hudson suffered a devastating ankle injury in July and wasn't able to pitch again the rest of the season. Hudson (8-7, 3.97 ERA in 21 starts) pitched well before the injury, however, and doesn't have any plans to retire. Returning to Atlanta for another season makes plenty of sense for the 38-year-old righthander.

Description: The latest update on Atlanta righthander Tim Hudson is that he suffered a fractured right ankle and will need season-ending surgery.
Insight: Eric Young stepped on Hudson's foot on a play at first base and Hudson went down writhing in pain. He'll finish the season 8-7 with a 3.97 ERA and 1.19 WHIP. Brandon Beachy should come off the disabled list and take over Hudson's spot in the rotation, but as the veteran leader to a young Braves' pitching staff it will be interesting to see how they hold up without him.

Description: Atlanta righthander Tim Hudson suffered what looked to be a serious injury Wednesday against the Mets. SOURCE: Mike Axisa, CBS Sports
Insight: Eric Young stepped on Hudson's foot on a play at first base and Hudson went down writhing in pain. He was eventually carted off the field. We don't know the extent of the injury yet but there's a pretty good chance Hudson has thrown his last pitch of 2013.
 
7/11/2013 10:31:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Tim Hudson has won two straight starts after going 0-6 in his previous 10.
Insight: Hudson allowed four runs (three earned) on eight hits in seven innings Thursday against the Reds. It was his seventh quality start in his last eight outings.
 
7/5/2013 4:03:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Tim Hudson has had his start pushed back until Saturday, but no reason was given.
Insight: Hudson is 4-7 this season with a 4.22 ERA and 1.21 WHIP. It's possible that Hudson could be dealt to make room for the returning Brandon Beachy, but we await further word.
 
6/29/2013 10:32:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Tim Hudson hasn't won since May 5. He's 4-7 with a 4.22 ERA.
Insight: Hudson had a 2-0 lead going into the fourth and a 4-2 lead going into the sixth Saturday against Arizona, but he gave away both leads. The big blow was a two-run game-tying homer off the bat of A.J. Pollock in the top of the sixth. Saturday's game snapped a string of five straight quality starts for Hudson.
 
Hot6/18/2013 10:18:00 AM
Description: Braves starter Tim Hudson gave up one run on six hits over seven innings Monday against the Mets.
Insight: He took a no decision. The right-hander has thrown at least seven innings in each of his last four starts and has a 1.57 ERA in that span but hasn't won since May 5. He's 4-6 with a 4.17 ERA and a 1.16 WHIP.
 
Cold5/15/2013 7:40:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Tim Hudson has allowed 16 hits and 11 earned runs over 8 2/3 innings his last two starts.
Insight: Hudson has been terrible with men on base this season, serving up line drives over a 22 percent rate and stranding just 64.9 percent. He also has allowed six homers in 51 innings. The right-hander has stranded runners at a 73.8 percent rate and allowed 0.71 HR/9 in his career, so this is out of the ordinary.
 
4/30/2013 10:02:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Tim Hudson dominated the Nationals over seven innings Tuesday, allowing three hits and one run, walking two and striking out six to move to 3-1.
Insight: Hudson improved to 16-5 with a 2.55 ERA and a 1.11 WHIP in his career against the Nationals (28 starts). He has a 3.86 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP this season, and four of his six turns were quality starts.
 
3/21/2013 4:35:00 PM
Description: The Braves announced that righthander Tim Hudson will start the season opener against the Phillies on April 1st.
Insight: Kris Medlen (10-1, 1.57 ERA in 2012) had also been a candidate to start the season opener. It's Hudson's first Opening Day start since 2008. The 37-year-old went 16-7 last year with a 3.62 ERA in 28 starts.
 
9/28/2012 8:54:00 PM
Description: Atlanta starter Tim Hudson could be scratched from his next start so he sets up to start Game 1 of the NLDS on Oct. 7, according to David O'Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
Insight: The Braves will only use Hudson if they are still battling for a division title, which is unlikely since they came into Friday four games behind the Nationals. Fantasy owners banking on one more start from Hudson (16-6, 3.61 ERA) will have to look for other options.
 
9/23/2012 6:01:00 PM
Description: Atlanta starter Tim Hudson reached 16 wins for the third straight season Sunday against the Phillies with 7 1/3 dominant innings.
Insight: Hudson is now 16-6 with a 3.61 ERA after he didn't allow an earned run on just two hits Sunday against Philadelphia.
 
9/6/2012 4:45:00 PM
Description: Atlanta righthander Tim Hudson used a scoreless outing on Thursday to improve his record to 14-5 for the season.
Insight: Hudson had a shaky game last time out against the Phillies (5 IP, 9 H, 5 ER) but he was able to rebound nicely by tossing seven scoreless innings versus the Rockies, allowing just six hits and two walks over 102 pitches.
 
Hot8/27/2012 12:05:00 AM
Description: Braves starter Tim Hudson won his seventh straight decision Sunday against the Giants.
Insight: Hudson (13-4, 3.57 ERA) fired seven innings and scattered five hits Sunday to win his 194th career game. The right-hander has been one of the best back-end fantasy starters in the league this season, helping owners in wins, ERA and WHIP. His low strikeout total prevents him from being more than that, but as long as you have other aces Hudson makes for a solid SP4 and excellent SP5.
 
8/14/2012 10:17:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Tim Hudson improved to 12-4 with 6 1/3 strong innings (2 H, 0 ER, 1 BB, 4 K) Tuesday against the Padres.
Insight: Hudson (12-4, 3.59 ERA) has won 12 of his 20 starts to go along with solid ratios. He doesn't strike many batters out, but he's still a solid mid-tier arm.
 
7/24/2012 10:35:00 PM
Description: Braves starter Tim Hudson has won nine games despite missing most of April.
Insight: Hudson (9-4, 3.71) has won nine of his 16 starts this season, including Tuesday against the Marlins (7 IP, 5 H, 3 ER). He is a solid back-end starter in most fantasy formats.
 
7/6/2012 10:30:00 PM
Description: Despite tweaking his ankle early on in the game, Tim Hudson was able to pitch seven shutout innings Friday night in Atlanta's 5-0 win over the Phillies. Hudson allowed just four hits and one walk over 79 pitches. He did not record a strikeout.
Insight: Hudson definitely wasn't 100 percent but somehow he battled through the pain and was able to put together a pretty effective outing. With the victory, Hudson improved to 7-4 for the year while lowering his season ERA from 3.87 to 3.56.
