This is what CBS had on him..
Tim Hudson, SP OAK
News: The San Jose Mercury News reports that Hudson (strained left oblique) threw about 35 pitches from the edge of the bullpen mound Monday. He was not expected to have such a session until later in the week. "He came in, and his words were, 'I feel golden,'" said trainer Larry Davis. "So I told him we'll do something that's a little more aggressive if you feel that good."
Analysis: Hudson will throw from halfway up the mound Thursday. He might throw a bullpen session this weekend. "It felt good," he said. He should be back in the rotation at the end of the month, although he could return as a reliever until he gets his arm strength back.
I could use him back to..Let it rip Huddy!
