Dakota Hudson’s Scouting Report
Hudson has two plus pitches, with his fastball being one and the other being a nasty slider/cutter. He still needs to improve his off-speed stuff. The 6’5″ righty has solid mechanics and could be a top-of-the-rotation guy if he figures out his curveball and changeup. If Hudson doesn’t figure out those pitches he could end up in the bullpen, where he could potentially be a closer.
- Plus Fastball
- Plus Slider
- Solid mechanics
- Has top-of-the-rotation potential
- His curveball and changeup are below average
- Needs to improve his command
Fastball: 93-97 MPH

Where could Hudson end up in the draft?
The Mariners are an option for Hudson at 11, but they’ll most likely go in a different direction. Boston is also an option at 12, with the Blue Jays being his floor at 21. I see Hudson going to the Red Sox or the Angels at 16.
