Thoughts on Hudson, Jeter's struggles

It was another step in the continuing maturation of 24-year-old Arizona Diamondbacks starter Daniel Hudson.
After a rough first inning against the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday (allowed four baserunners and two runs and was even bailed out of the inning by having a runner get thrown out at third base), Hudson went into the dugout and realized he was having problems with his arm slot and getting offline with his delivery (he confirmed as much after the game). But he remained calm and proceeded to make the necessary changes to right the ship. He went on to blank the Reds for the next six innings, striking out seven batters and allowing just two more baserunners in the losing effort.
