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.
