Like Monday, a really light on material today. Tomorrow, I promise to have a bunch of PAIN, SLOW, HURT and Zone% reports for consumption.
His velocity has returned to pre-surgery levels. Arnsberg says Hudson has routinely pitched in the 93 mph range, even hitting 95 mph on consecutive pitches.
The velocity is close to his pre-TJS days. Stayed tuned to see if he can get back to his 2009 to 2010 production levels.
• One of the worst possible articles on pitching through an injury was written in the last couple of days. I will let Craig Calcaterra at Hardball Talk introduce the stupidity. If you then feel you need to kill some brain cells, you can head over the original article.
• I have some concerns with Michael Pineda, his velocity dropped like a rock late in his start yesterday.
He is just getting back to pitching full time, so he may experience some bumps. It would be nice to see a more consistent value though.
• The Dodgers seem convinced Hyun-Jin Ryu will be back after minimum time on the DL. I would not be surprised one bit if it takes longer. Core/trunk injuries always take longer than expected to come back from.
