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.

Strengths

  • Plus Fastball
  • Plus Slider
  • Solid mechanics
  • Has top-of-the-rotation potential

Weaknesses

  • His curveball and changeup are below average
  • Needs to improve his command

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.
