An article in today’s Cincinnati Enquirer states that Hudson has so much inflammation in his shoulder that a cortisone shot won’t even help. Doc Hollywood says he’s out for an “undetermined time”.

The really scary thing is that Hollywood also says that his shoulder is “structurally sound”.

With Kremcheck’s record, can surgery be far away?

About The Author

I've been a Reds fan since the late '60's, with my luck of being able to attend plenty of games at Riverfront during the BRM era. I was sitting in the Green Seats in the OF when Pete came home in '84 and was in the Red seats when Glenn Braggs reached over the fence in '90 to beat the Pirates. I have had many favorites from Jim Maloney to Johnny Bench, Barry Larkin, Adam Dunn, and Jay Bruce.

    I would suggest that we never count on Luke Hudson to contribute; plans should be to continue as if he’s out for good…and then be happy if he’s ever healthy….may be relief is where he should be for less should stress?

    Are you suggesting him being a relief pitcher? I remember hearing it takes him a long time to loosen up, so it would be harder to become a reliever.

    Yes, I am; with long relief, slow warm ups wouldn’t be such an issue. He doesn’t have the arm to be a rotation starter…

    Yes thats true, I like Hudson and hope he can suceed.
