Baseball America’s not so hot sheet

BA Staff:

Dan Hudson, rhp, White Sox: Hudson’s season started well enough. He won his season debut for Triple-A Charlotte on April 12 against Norfolk, allowing one run on three hits over 5 2/3 innings with eight strikeouts. But not much has gone right since. His allowing eight runs (four earned) in 4 1/3 innings against Durham on April 22 wasn’t great, but Hudson’s last outing was a complete disaster. The 23-year-old was pulled from his start Tuesday against Columbus without recording an out in the second inning, ending with a line of 1 IP, 8 H, 9 R, 9 ER, 1 BB, 2 SO. He gave up a pair of home runs among those eight hits and has permitted six long balls already this year, tying him for second most in the International League. He gave up just five long balls in 26 minor league starts last year. After pitching at every full-season level last year, from low Class A to the majors, Hudson might have to settle in in Charlotte for awhile before looking for about another callup.

And FutureSox takes a look on Hudson’s slow start. Hint: .404 BABIP.
