Hudson felt discomfort in his hip while warming up before his most recent start on Sunday against the Dodgers, where he allowed two runs in six innings. There are no plans to place him on the disabled list and Giants manager Bruce Bochy said that the hope is he’ll only have to miss one start.
“We think he’ll be fine … after just skipping him once,” Bochy said. “It loosened up for him but we got him out of there early and I’m glad we did. This thing is still lingering a little bit and we think in a few days it will clear up.”
After suffering a season-ending ankle injury last year, Hudson signed a two-year, $23 million contract with the Giants during the offseason. The 38-year-old right-hander has proven to be a bargain thus far by posting a 2.09 ERA across eight starts. He has walked just four batters in 60 1/3 innings.
