Tim Hudson: Set To Start Opener

RotoWire.com Staff

Update: Hudson has been named the Braves' Opening Day starter, Mark Bowman of MLB.com reports.

Recommendation: The 37-year-old right-hander will get the Opening Day nod after missing the start of last year with a back ailment. Hudson's spring numbers don't lend much hope to his strikeout rate improving (he has just five strikeouts over 20.0 innings), but his ability to induce grounders should at least help him stay competitive.
