Dodgers News: Daniel Hudson Wants to Continue His Career Following Injury

It was tough to watch Daniel Hudson go down over the weekend. The Dodgers reliever grabbed his knee immediately after a non-contact play resulted in him going to the ground on Friday night. The team would later reveal that he had suffered a torn ACL and would be out for the season.

The 35-year-old veteran was playing in his 13th season in the big leagues when he suffered the injury. It was his second with the Dodgers and he was pitching pretty well, posting  a 2.22 ERA across 25 total appearances.

But he’s not quite done despite the length of the recovery period for a torn ACL, even at his age. The Dodgers hurler said this week that he does plan to give it another go and get the knee all healed up before returning to the field again.

And that’s good news for Hudson. Having the last memory on a baseball field being a severe injury like that is no way to go out. And who knows, he could be back with the Dodgers when he heals up. Los Angeles signed them to a $7 million contract this offseason with a  club option for 2023.

The Dodgers have a tough call to make with their bullpen, but a change in closer is apparently not on the table. Dave Roberts said they will not be going away from Craig Kimbrel in the 9th inning despite some atrocious outings, most recently allowing 2 runs to give away the game on Sunday.
