'Arm feels good,' says Hudson as comeback continues

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- Right-hander Daniel Hudson tossed a pair of scoreless innings in a Minor League game on Wednesday afternoon as he continues his comeback from a pair of Tommy John surgeries.

"Arm feels good," Hudson said. "We'll see how it feels the next couple of days and go from there."

It was the third appearance of the spring for Hudson, with the first two coming in Cactus League games.

The team hopes to get Hudson up to three innings in his next outing, which is tentatively scheduled for Monday. It has yet to be determined whether he will be used as a starter or reliever during the regular season, but in the meantime the team will continue to stretch him out as though he will start.

"I've got plenty of time, I think," Hudson said of being ready for Opening Day. "Probably three or four more outings."
