Elite relievers left in free agency: Daniel Hudson
Just last night Will Harris signed with the Nationals but Daniel Hudson is still available. Will Harris got a three-year deal identical to Joe Kelly but Hudson is only expected to receive a two-year deal. Hudson does not have the long track record of success that Harris has so a 2 year $16 million dollar deal could be enough to land him.
The former Dodger Daniel Hudson bolstered the Nationals’ bullpen in 2019. Hudson was a Dodger in 2019 and started to show glimpses of being an effective reliever before going down with forearm issues. Last season with the Blue Jays and Nationals he allowed an average of .210 while converting eight of twelve save opportunities. In the postseason, Hudson converted all four of his save opportunities. It’s likely too soon to call Daniel Hudson an elite reliever but he is one of the better options in this year’s free-agent class.
