38-year-old Tim Hudson will make his first start as a San Francisco Giant on Wednesday as they will take on Trevor Cahill (0-1) and the Arizona Diamondbacks. Tim Hudson's 2013 season was going pretty well until he fractured his ankle in late-July, which took him out for the rest of the year. He ended his last season with the Braves with a 3.97 ERA after pitching just over 131 innings.
Of the current Diamondbacks, Miguel Montero has the most career plate appearances (14) against Hudson, but has hit just .231/.286/.308 with a double and an RBI. Outfielder A.J. Pollock is the only Diamondback to hit a homer off of the righty.
Trevor Cahill will take the mound for the second time this season and will be trying to put his Opening Day loss to the Dodgers behind him. He went just four innings in that game and gave up five runs on four hits. He threw just 48 of his 89 pitches for strikes, so he will need to find his command if he wants to do better against the Giants.
Marco Scutaro has faced Cahill 29 times in his career and has had a lot of success against him, hitting .333 with a double, a triple, eight walks and five RBI. Pablo Sandoval has eight hits, including a double and a triple, in 22 at-bats against him as well.
