Hudson nearing extension
A source familiar with the negotiations said Wednesday night that Tim Hudson could be just a few days away from agreeing from the three-year contract extension that the Braves have offered.
“It’s getting pretty close,” said this source, who added that there are just a few “small details” that need to be ironed out.
While financial specifics were not revealed, it’s believed that this three-year extension will likely be worth $24-27 million.
In the seven starts that Hudson made after returning from Tommy John surgery this year, he went 2-1 with a 3.61 ERA. The 34-year-old right-hander allowed two earned runs or fewer in four of those seven outings.
“He looked pretty good to me,” said a National League scout. “He looked like he was back to normal.”
