"I'm probably a couple of weeks behind where I normally am," Hudson said. "I had my surgery on the second of January so I wasn't able to start throwing until the latter part of January. So just from a throwing standpoint I have a little ways to go before I'm ready to get in some games. My mindset is just to be ready for the real games when the season starts, whether that means me pitching in one game or four games this spring."
"If you're a true baseball fan, you embrace and you enjoy pitchers' duels," Hudson said. "The 1-0 games, the 2-1 games, the well-pitched games that are played without physical errors."
