Free agent right-handed starting pitcher Tim Hudson is reportedly close to signing with the San Francisco Giants.

Free agent right-handed starting pitcher Tim Hudson is reportedly close to signing with the San Francisco Giants. 

This was reported no less on the Giants' official website by MLB.com's Chris Haft on Nov. 18. Haft reports Hudson's deal is worth two years and that it is "appeared imminent" although the club hasn't released any official statement just yet. 

More specifically, the contract is worth around $23 million, per the San Francisco Chronicle's John Shea. He also adds Hudson was in San Francisco on Nov. 18, "perhaps to have a physical." 

Giants reliever Jeremy Affeldt told the Associated Press' Janie McCauley by text message,"I'm pumped. Great signing for us. Competitor and innings eater. Knows how to win!"

With Hudson on board, the Giants solidified their pitching rotation. They also re-signed starter Tim Lincecum for another two years for $35 million. Madison Bumgarner and Matt Cain were already signed for the next several years, per Shea. 

Aside from added depth in the rotation, Shea believes Hudson will prove to be a good mentor for Lincecum as they have the same body type. 

Once the Giants deal becomes official, the 38-year-old Hudson will return to the Bay Area, where he was a member of the Oakland Athletics' "Big Three" alongside Barry Zito and Mark Mulder. Hudson posted a 92-39 record with a a 3.30 ERA in six seasons for Oakland. 

He was also a two-time All-Star for the Athletics and finished runner-up in the 2000 American League Cy Young Award voting. 

Hudson was traded to the Atlanta Braves in 2004 for Juan Cruz, Dan Meyer and Charles Thomas. He had a 113-72 record with a 3.56 ERA in nine seasons for the Braves. In 2013, Hudson posted an 8-7 record with a 3.97 ERA in 21 starts before he suffered a gruesome injury when New York Mets outfielder Eric Young, Jr. inadvertently stepped on his lower right leg when trying to get the out at first base. 

Hudson was declared out for the season at that point. He also had Tommy John elbow surgery in 2009.

Tim Hudson allows double on 1st career World Series pitch

Oct 24 2014 7:30pm CDT | Source: SBNation

The veteran righty later got the benefit of a really bad call by the home plate umpire. Giants starter Tim Hudson waited a long time to pitch in his first World Series -- 16 seasons, in fact. The 39-year-old veteran was greeted rather rudely on his first career Fall Classic pitch by Royals shortstop Alcides Escobar. Escobar came around to score on an RBI groundout from Lorenzo Cain, giving Kansas City an early 1-0 ...

World Series 2014 live stream: How to watch Royals vs. Giants Game 3 online

Oct 24 2014 4:59pm CDT | Source: SBNation

The Royals' bullpen is poised to be the difference-maker. When one winning streak is lost, just go start another. That's what the Royals did anyway. After the Giants dashed their eight-game postseason win-streak (11 games, going back to 1985) in Game 1 of the World Series, the Royals began anew with Game 2, winning, 7-2 on Wednesday night. With the series knotted up at 1-1, the Royals turn to Jeremy G ...

World Series 2014: Odds and Predictions for Royals vs. Giants Game 3

Oct 24 2014 3:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Someone is going to take control of the 2014 World Series on Friday, and they will probably score seven runs in the process. The San Francisco Giants won Game 1 by the score of 7-1, but the Kansas City Royals returned the favor with a 7-2 victory in Game 2. Perhaps we can get to triple sevens from the winner, which would be somewhat ironic considering we are about to introduce World Series odds that you may want to try your luck with on Friday. Guess what the ove ...

Giants, Royals set World Series Game 3 lineups

Oct 24 2014 2:20pm CDT | Source: SBNation

The series is all tied up 1-1, but now it's in San Francisco for the next three games. With the World Series moving to Giants territory -- where the designated hitter is not allowed -- the lineups finally look a little different. The Royals have moved Alex Gordon up from his usual sixth spot all the way to the two hole, subtracted DH Billy Butler from the proceedings, and switched in Jarrod Dyson for Norichika Aoki in the outfield. Aoki is nor ...

World Series 2014: Royals vs. Giants Game 3 Pitching Preview, Predictions

Oct 24 2014 11:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

After the San Francisco Giants earned a pivotal road win in Game 1, the Kansas City Royals were back with a vengeance in Game 2, evening the World Series in front of their home crowd. While both teams notched impressive victories, they did so in different fashions. The Giants rode the arm of Madison Bumgarner in Game 1. The southpaw went seven strong innings, allowing just three hits and one run en route to a 1.29 ERA. The Royals relied on a strong bullpen to ...

After a day of travel, the San Francisco Giants and Kansas City Royals are back in action for Game 3 of the 2014 World Series. Through two games these teams are even at 1-1, but it was certainly a roller-coaster ride to this point. The Giants dominated Game 1, as the Royals didn't have an answer for a near-flawless Madison Bumgarner. However, Kansas City stormed back in Game 2, utilizing a hot-handed lineup, savvy baserunning and great rel ...

What has already been a postseason for the ages continues on with Game 3 of the World Series on Friday night, and things are all knotted up as we shift to San Francisco. The San Francisco Giants were winners in Game 1, as they struck for three runs in the top of the first and never looked back, cruising to a 7-1 victory behind another strong start from ace Madison Bumgarner. However, the Kansas City Royals turned the tables in Game 2, as their bats came alive and they rode a five-run sixth innin ...

World Series 2014: Schedule and Predictions for Royals vs. Giants Game 3

Oct 24 2014 7:00am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It's hardly a surprise that the Kansas City Royals and San Francisco Giants are tied at one win apiece heading into Game 3 of the 2014 World Series. The Giants have plenty of recent postseason experience, and the Royals came into the World Series with eight straight playoff wins. Naturally, they beat each other up to start the series. However, any fans expecting tight, tense affairs decided by late-inning heroics are perhaps disappointed. Trading jabs for nine innings has given way to hay ...
