RotoWire News: Hudson will serve as Pittsburgh's closer on days Tony Watson is unable to close, CBS Pittsburgh reports. (2/23/2017)

Profile: You can't help but root for this guy. He missed basically all of three years due to two Tommy John surgeries, and he came back in the bullpen to finally put together two decent seasons in a row. Some might scoff at the idea that last year was any good, but it was healthy, and he struck out nearly a batter per inning. He even served as the closer to finish the season, so it was good enough. Now that he's sitting 96 and throwing all three pitches again, he's interesting in Pittsburgh. With all those lefties in the pen -- and Tony Watson as a lefty closer -- a trade may open up a path to saves for Hudson, considering managers do prefer righties. At least Hudson should be worth some holds and strikeouts, and his homer rate should change due to regression and/or park factors. This isn't the most exciting writeup you can imagine, but after the pain Hudson went through, he'll take a healthy arm, and a two year-deal, and smile. (Eno Sarris)

The Quick Opinion: At least the setup man in Pittsburgh for the next two years, Hudson could find himself closing if lefty Tony Watson is traded. That makes him interesting, as a story of triumph over setbacks as well as a possible source of saves.
