Blue Jays Trade Daniel Hudson to Nationals


The Washington Nationals have acquired some much needed bullpen help in the form of the Toronto Blue Jay’s Daniel Hudson.

This year Hudson is 6-3 with a 3.00 ERA, two saves, and 48 strikeouts in 48 innings. Hudson will hopefully solidify the eighth inning for Washington and bridge the gap to closer Sean Doolittle. The eighth inning has been a problem for the Nationals. Kyle Barraclough and Trevor Rosenthal both tried to fill the eighth-inning spot and both failed. Rosenthal was cut and Barraclough was demoted. Hudson will help Washington’s bullpen which ranks last in ERA (5.97).

In return, Washington sent prospect Kyle Johnston to Toronto. Johnston was the Nationals 27th ranked prospect. He is 9-9 with a 4.03 ERA, and 100 strikeouts in 105 innings. He will join fellow pitching prospects Anthony Kay and Simeon Woods Richardson who were traded to Toronto as a part of the Marcus Stroman trade. Toronto is trying to acquire more pitching prospects to eventually join their young offensive core.
