12/27/2018 - 2018 Inaugural West Coast Winter Classic - La Verne, CA
Hudson is a coachable SS/OF prospect who worked hard on his skills during his time at the West Coast Winter Classic. In the field, Hudson takes a good first step and displays active footwork. He fields the ball out in front of his body and gains momentum well on his throws, keeping them accurate to his target. At the plate, this RHH sets up in a square stance and takes a soft stride. He is controlled getting into a simple load and remains centered with his lower half. He takes a smooth swing with decent bat speed, leading to consistent line drives. With four more years to develop, Hudson has the time and potential to further progress his skills on the field.
