Phil Rogers:

The 22-year-old pitched well Friday night in his second start for Triple-A Charlotte, beating highly touted Baltimore prospect Jake Arrieta. He did so with two of Ken Williams’ top Chicago-based assistants evaluating his demeanor and stuff from behind home plate. Assistant general manager Rick Hahn and director of baseball operations Dan Fabian seem certain to report that Hudson is an option worth considering if Jose Contreras continues to falter as Ozzie Guillen‘s fourth starter. … Hudson’s fastball was 91-92 m.p.h. Friday night, a bit lower than it has been at times. His slider and changeup were sharp, and he showed poise after five of the first nine Norfolk hitters reached base against him. Hahn likened him to a cross between Gavin Floyd and the Angels’ Jered Weaver.


Hudson, D (W, 1-0) 7.0 3 1 0 2 6 0 3.27
Hernandez, F (H, 2) 1.0 1 0 0 0 1 0 0.00
