Hudson was blown up for eight runs on six hits and two walks through just 3.2 innings against the Rockies on Sunday. The loss dropped his record to 2-4 on the season.

The 39-year-old was coming off a shutout victory in his last start, so Sunday's performance was disappointing, although he was pitching at Coors Field. Hudson's ERA ballooned to 5.07 on the season after his Sunday struggles, and he will try to right the ship against the Braves on Friday.

Hudson picked up his first win of the season Saturday, tossing eight innings and allowing three runs on just two hits (both home runs) and two walks, with three strikeouts.

The Angels took advantage of the few baserunners Hudson gave them, but the Giants still held on for the win. Hudson's mediocre 16:9 K:BB ratio in 33.1 innings limits his fantasy value in most formats, but his 3.78 ERA and 1.14 WHIP won't hurt your staff in a deep league. He gets an enticing home start against the Marlins in his next turn through the rotation.

Hudson is "definitely leaning" towards retiring at the end of the 2015 season, Fox Sports' Ken Rosenthal reports.

Hudson has spent the last five years as a serviceable starter for the Giants and Braves, but he hasn't put up a sub-3.00 ERA since 2010. With World Series ring in hand, it could finally be time to hang up the cleats.

Hudson dropped to 0-2 on the season after giving up five runs on six hits over five innings in Sunday's loss to Arizona.

While Hudson exhibited his usual great control Sunday (57 strikes - 26 balls), he wasn't able to command his pitches, leaving too many up in the zone. Paul Goldschmidt made him pay with a two-run shot in the first inning, and the Diamondbacks never looked back. Things don't get any easier for Hudson, as his next start comes against the red-hot Rockies at Coors Field this Saturday.

Hudson (0-1) took the loss against the Rockies on Tuesday despite tossing a quality start. He went seven innings, giving up three runs on eight hits while striking out four and walking none.

Hudson looked more like himself Tuesday after a five-walk season debut. He kept the ball low in the strike zone and induced ground balls from a tough offense (11 groundouts). Despite the solid outing, the Giants failed to score a run while Hudson was on the mound for the second consecutive outing. Wins may be few and far between, but with a 2.03 ERA through two starts, the 39-year-old pitcher could be starting the year off strong like he did in 2014.

Hudson threw a spring-high 78 pitches, while giving up three runs on six hits and striking out three over six innings Wednesday against the Rockies.

Hudson hit a double in Wednesday's game and slid into second, which is significant because he is coming off of a Jan. 6 ankle surgery. He retired the first 10 batters before giving up a single in the fourth inning to Corey Dickerson. Pitching for six innings helped Hudson build up his arm strength before the season starts. He will most likely pitch fourth in the rotation this season.
