Right-handed reliever Daniel Hudson and the Los Angeles Dodgers are nearing a one-year deal, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan.
When completed, it is expected to be around $ 7 million.
Hudson, 34, was acquired by the San Diego Padres in a midseason trade with the Washington Nationals. He was 1-2 with a 5.21 ERA and 27 strikeouts in 23 appearances for the Padres.
Hudson has a history of injuries, including two Tommy John surgeries between 2012 and 2013 while he was with the Arizona Diamondbacks. He spent time on the disabled list last season with a sore right elbow.
In his career, Hudson is 57-40 with 27 saves and a 3.86 ERA in 12 major league seasons for the Chicago White Sox, Diamondbacks, Pittsburgh Pirates, Toronto Blue Jays, Nationals and Padres. He is also a former member of the Dodgers, having pitched in 40 games for them in 2018.
