Tim Hudson on DL

Postby RFay8585 » Sat Jun 26, 2004 6:44 pm

OAKLAND, Calif. - The Oakland A's announced today that they have placed right handed pitcher Tim Hudson on the 15-day disabled list retroactive to June 23 with a left oblique strain. Hudson will be replaced on the 25-man roster by Octavio Dotel, who reported to Oakland today after being acquired in a trade on Thursday.

Hudson was the A's opening day starter and is 7-3 with a 2.98 ERA in 15 starts this year. He currently ranks second in the American League in innings pitched (108.2), fourth in ERA and tied for 10th in wins. Hudson has allowed just three home runs this year and is averaging 0.25 home runs per nine innings which is the best mark in the majors. He ranks second on the A's pitching staff in wins, ERA and innings pitched.

This marks the first career stint on the disabled list for Hudson who has been one of the most durable pitchers in the majors over the last five years. He has 1024.1 innings pitched over that span, which ranks second to Livan Hernandez (1033.2), and his 150 starts trail only Tom Glavine (154) and Greg Maddux (154). Hudson has 76 wins since the start of the 2000 season which is second only to Randy Johnson (79).

Hudson has a career record of 87-36 with a 3.23 ERA in 171 starts. He ranks fourth on the Oakland career list in strikeouts (848), fifth in wins, seventh in games started, eighth in innings pitched (1160.2), ninth in ERA and tied for ninth in shutouts (7). Hudson's .707 career winning percentage is the best in Oakland history and the third best in major league history among pitchers with 50 or more wins.

This is officially the "Year of the Injury." I'm glad I don't own Hudson but it's just ridiculous now.

It could be a lot worse - i.e something arm related. Hudson should bounce right back. I just traded him (and several pitching prospects) to a rebuilding team last night for Prior and K.Greene, so my timing couldn't have been better. Though fellow league owners probably won't see it that way.

As far as this being the "year of the injury," ESPN Magazine ran a story this week claiming performance enhancing drugs, like steroids, are to blame in the annual increase in injuries and DL stays. An interesting take, especially for hitters injuries.

I think it's because of Griffey Jr. He's healthy so now everyone else gets hurt. :-b
