Yesterday, the Players Choice Awards named Tim Hudson the National League Comeback Player of the Year. After missing all but the final month of the 2009 season, Hudson returned to form for the Braves in 2010, providing much-needed pitching stability down the stretch. When the Braves were in a must-win situation, they turned to Hudson, who made 3 starts in the final 7 days of the regular season, to boost the Braves into the playoffs.
In 34 starts in the 2010 season, Hudson compiled a 17-9 record with a 2.83 ERA and 139 strikeouts. Personally, I’m pretty excited to have Hudson around for at least two more seasons (and a 3rd on club option) to help anchor our pitching staff.
