Tim Hudson tosses two perfect innings in spring debut

San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Hudson threw a pair of perfect innings in his spring debut. Hudson, 38, recorded one strike out in his two innings of work. It’s a good sign for a pitcher who ended the 2013 season on the disabled list with a broken ankle.

Meet Your New Giants – Tim Hudson

The signing of Hudson might smack of a traditional, detested veteran signing by Brian Sabean, but there are a few mitigating factors here.  The biggest is that...
