Hudson, Pirates agree to contract
The Pirates bolstered their bullpen Monday, agreeing to an $11 million, two-year contract with reliever Daniel Hudson.
Hudson, 29, will make $5.5 million in both 2017 and 2018. The contract includes $1.5 million annually in performance bonuses based on games finished starting at 30 and ending at 60. Hudson went 3-2 with a 5.22 ERA in 70 appearances for the Diamondbacks in 2016.
Hudson thanked the Diamondbacks for sticking with him “through some really tough times.” He later added “Let’s do this Pittsburgh.”
