Daniel Hudson out of the #mlbfutures game, almost certainly meaning he will pitch Sunday for the whitesox
Mark Gonzales says not so fast (twitter):
Peavy DL, Marquez promoted.
UPDATE: Mark Gonzales explains:
He likely will be available in relief for the next four games.
While a call up to the Majors is not yet in the offing for Hudson, one of the talents mentioned by Williams, the right-hander has been honored in another way. Hudson was selected to take part in the XM All-Star Futures Game, as part of the U.S. Team roster, featuring many of the top Minor League prospects in baseball.
Mark Buehrle, John Danks, Gavin Floyd and Alex Rios are just some of the players on the current White Sox roster who have previously played in this game. Hudson posted a 14-5 record with a 2.32 ERA and 166 strikeouts in 26 starts over four Minor League stops for the White Sox last season and has followed up that stellar effort with a 9-3 record and 3.89 ERA in 14 starts for Triple-A Charlotte this season.

Lingo @ BA:
Hudson made his major league debut last season and is ready to contribute in Chicago whenever the club needs him. He offers three solid pitches with natural deception and strong command.
