Giants closing in on deal with Tim Hudson

Posted: Updated:

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - The San Francisco Giants are working to finalize agreement on a $23 million, two-year contract with free agent right-hander Tim Hudson.

Assistant general manager Bobby Evans says nothing is completed but "we are close." The deal would bring Hudson back to the Bay Area, where he pitched for the Oakland Athletics as a member of the "Big Three" with Mark Mulder and Barry Zito beginning in the late 1990s.

The 38-year-old Hudson went 8-7 with a 3.97 ERA in 21 starts this season for Atlanta, with his season cut short by a broken ankle.

San Francisco is seeking another starter to join Matt Cain, Madison Bumgarner and Tim Lincecum in a rotation that lost Zito and probably Ryan Vogelsong.
