Update: Monday, July 20

Hudson takes the hill in the Giants’ series opener versus the Padres tonight.

—End of update—

Though it’s hard to say whether Huddy went on the DL due to a shoulder strain or accumulation of old-man ailments, the 40-year-old is primed to return to the Giants’ rotation after the break:

Hudson’s bullpen sessions have looked good, according to reports, but I expect the right-hander to be on a short leash given his inconsistency for most of the season. Ryan Vogelsong is headed back to the bullpen for now, but I wouldn’t be surprised to see him make at least few more starts for the team if Hudson (or any of the Giants starters not named Madison Bumgarner) falters.
