Great news this evening out of the desert.
Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona reports that Diamondbacks right-hander Daniel Hudson has been cleared to return to the major leagues and will start Sunday’s series finale against the Brewers.
Hudson has been sidelined since April 19 — just over a month — because of an impingement in his right shoulder. He allowed two runs in a five-inning rehab start Monday with the Triple-A Reno Aces.
The 24-year-old owns a sparkling 3.33 career ERA and pitched 222 innings last season for the Snakes.
We know Clayton Kershaw will oppose Dallas Keuchel in Game 1 of the World Series. We now know the rest of the Dodgers’ rotation order, per Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times. After Kershaw, it’ll be Rich Hill, then Yu Darvish, followed by Alex Wood.
No surprise, that’s the same order the Dodgers used in the NLCS against the Cubs. Dodger starters combined to post a 2.67 ERA with 31 strikeouts and four walks across 27 innings in the NLCS.
The Astros haven’t yet announced their rotation order, but we can safely assume Justin Verlander will follow Keuchel in Game 2.
