Daniel Hudson will be back in Dodger blue in 2023. On Thursday, it was announced that the Dodgers had exercised the injured reliever’s $6.5 million option for next season.
Hudson was one of the team’s top relievers this season, before suffering a fluke torn ACL that ended his season back in June.
The Los Angeles Dodgers are picking up right-hander Daniel Hudson’s $6.5 million option for the 2023 season, sources tell ESPN. He was fantastic for them before a freak ACL tear ended his season. Dodgers also will get a club option likely to be worth around $6.5 million for 2024.

Prior to the injury, Hudson was 2-3 with a 2.22 ERA and 30 strikeouts over 24.1 innings pitched in his second tour of duty with the LA ballclub.
The 13-year vet was a member of the 2019 World Series champion Washington Nationals, and will look to help the Dodgers get back there next season.
The Dodgers would love to have Hudson on the postseason roster this season, but he should be back and contributing by early next year.
The goal is for Hudson to be back for the start of spring training in late February or early March of 2023.
