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.

Win or lose, the Royals still don't know what they're doing

Oct 28 2014 2:31pm CDT | Source: SBNation

The Braves have hired Ned Yost's deposed hitting coach, Kevin Seitzer, to revive their gone-dead-train offense. Meanwhile, the World Series has shown that the early rounds were flukes and Yost is still looking for keys he may never find. The main storyline the media has pushed in this postseason is that America loves the Royals. They are the plucky underdogs, 29 years removed from their last championship, and we love that. You love that. Your dog or cat loves t ...

Buster Posey, Bruce Bochy Are the Keys to Giants' World Series Comeback

Oct 25 2014 12:54am CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

The numbers cannot be ignored. Before this World Series, 54 of them have been tied 1-1, and of the 54 Game 3 winners, 38 have gone on to win the whole thing, according to Elias Sports Bureau. That is a touch more than 70 percent and quite possibly damning for the San Francisco Giants if necessary changes are not made. The Kansas City Royals’ 3-2 Game 3 victory Friday night at AT&T Park gave th ...

Royals Take World Series Lead With 3-2 Win Over Giants At AT&T Park

Oct 24 2014 11:38pm CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

SAN FRANCISCO — Sparkling defense, a stingy bullpen and just enough timely hitting. That winning formula of fundamental baseball has put the Kansas City Royals ahead in the World Series. They even looked comfortable in the tricky territory at unfamiliar AT&T Park. Jeremy Guthrie outpitched fellow World Series newcomer Tim Hudson, four Royals relievers combined on four hitless innings and Kansas City beat the San Francisco Giants 3-2 on Frida ...
