"It felt really good," Hudson said. "I got tired there at the end. I had a little extra adrenaline with hitters in there. I think that little extra adrenaline gets me feeling like game speed. It's coming out really good. I was really encouraged about how it was coming out of my hand. I felt like my stuff was pretty good for the first day out there."
Hudson will throw a five-minute bullpen session and five minutes of live batting practice again on Sunday. The 36-year-old veteran is scheduled to take another step on Wednesday, when his live batting practice session is lengthened to 10 minutes. At that point, he will have a better idea about when he might make his first appearance in what would likely be a Minor League game.
