According to ESPN, the San Francisco Giants have strengthened their rotation significantly after signing veteran Tim Hudson.
The San Francisco Giants have agreed to a $23 million, two-year contract with the free-agent pitcher, who began his career with Oakland. Hudson had a physical Monday, and the team said the deal is pending the results of that examination.
The deal may include a full no-trade clause, which was a central part of the discussion, sources told ESPN The Magazine’s Buster Olney. The A’s finished second in the bidding for Hudson, sources said.
In 21 starts for the Atlanta Braves last season, Hudson had a 8-7 record with a 3.97 ERA before his season was halted due to a broken ankle.
