Hudson blew up Thursday, taking the loss against Colorado when he allowed five runs (three earned) on two hits, including a home run, and three walks while recording just two outs.

Hudson's scoreless appearance streak ended at five with this epic meltdown. He has been solid coming out of the pen this year, so this performance can probably be chalked up to a case of Coors Field getting the better of him. He hasn't pitched back-to-back days often as he comes back from two Tommy John procedures, so expect him to get a day or two off to rest.

Hudson picked up the win Wednesday against the Rockies, pitching a scoreless eighth inning and striking out one.

The veteran former starter has pitched well from the pen for the Diamondbacks, especially recently with five consecutive scoreless appearances. He has a 3.06 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with 31 strikeouts in 32.1 innings on the season. If he doesn't return to starting, he could carve out a niche at the back of the bullpen.

Hudson walked one and struck out one during a scoreless ninth inning against the Giants on Sunday to earn his first save of the season.

Closer Brad Ziegler was unavailable after pitching the previous two games, affording Hudson the opportunity to save the game. Ziegler's name is the likeliest to be called for the majority of save situations moving forward, severely limiting Hudson's value as a fantasy reliever.

Hudson allowed a pair of runs, giving up two singles without recording an out in the Diamondbacks' 4-3 loss to Philadelphia on Friday night.

Hudson took over in the seventh inning with Arizona ahead 3-1, but the Phillies erased the lead and went on to win. The takeaway here is that both Hudson and Oliver Perez were used before the ninth inning. The Diamondbacks have at least temporarily removed Addison Reed from the closer's role, but have not really announced who would step in. As it turned out, they didn't have to tip their hand in this one, but with Hudson being used in the seventh inning, the favorites for saves might be down to Randall Delgado or Brad Ziegler. Stay tuned.

Hudson started against the Padres on Sunday but lasted just 3.1 scoreless innings, striking out five and walking two.

The start was his first since 2012, but he failed to make it deep into the game since he appeared in relief just three days prior. Hudson is unlikely to hang on to a rotation spot in the short-term with Archie Bradley on the mend, but could see spot starts down the road if injuries bite the D-backs pitching staff again.

Hudson will start for the Diamondbacks on Sunday against the Padres.

Hudson had been scored upon in four straight outings prior to a 17-pitch outing on May 7. Considering the proximity of that appearance to Sunday's start, it's highly unlikely that Hudson pitches deep into this game. He owns a 6.17 ERA and 1.37 WHIP over nine relief appearances in 2015. Don't expect Hudson to hang on to this rotation spot, as Archie Bradley (face) is targeting a May 16 return to the mound.
