Los Angeles Dodgers exercise team option on Daniel Hudson for 2023 season, sources say

The Los Angeles Dodgers are picking up right-hander Daniel Hudson’s $6.5 million option for the 2023 season, sources told ESPN’s Jeff Passan on Thursday.

Hudson, 35, suffered a season-ending left ACL tear in June when his knee bent reacting to a ball on the ground. The team’s top reliever had five saves and a 2.22 ERA at the time of the injury, and his goal is to be ready for the start of spring training.

The Dodgers will also have a club option for 2024, likely worth around $6.5 million, sources told ESPN.

Hudson had signed a one-year, $7 million contract with a team option last offseason.

He spent 13 major league seasons with seven teams, including the Dodgers. He spent seven seasons with the Arizona Diamondbacks, starting 33 games with 16 wins in 2011 before undergoing Tommy John surgery and transitioning to a bullpen career in the years that followed.
