    Reds Claim Michael Gosling, DFA Luke Hudson

He saw some time in the majors with the Diamondbacks each of the last two seasons, with a combined 1-4 record and 4.53 ERA in 19 big-league appearances, nine of them starts. A little unsettling: he managed to walk 32 while striking out only 28 in those stints.

    Hudson went 6-9 with a 6.38 ERA in 19 games, 16 of them starts, for the Reds last season.

    REDS ACQUIRE PITCHER MICHAEL GOSLING

    Lefthander Claimed Off Waivers From Arizona

    CINCINNATI - The Cincinnati Reds today acquired LHP Michael Gosling off waivers from the Arizona Diamondbacks.

    Gosling had spent his entire professional career in the Diamondbacks organization. He was selected by Arizona in the second round of the 2001 first-year player draft. At Class AA El Paso in 2002, his first professional season, he led the Texas League in victories (14) and ranked third in ERA (3.13).

    Gosling, 25, recovered from September 2003 shoulder surgery to make his Major League debut in 2004. He split last season between Class AAA Tucson and Arizona, going a combined 4-9 with a 5.56 ERA in 30 games (22 starts).

    To make room on the 40-man roster, the Reds designated for assignment RHP Luke Hudson. The team has 10 days to trade, release or outright Hudson, who went 6-9 with a 6.38 ERA in 19 games (16 starts) for the Reds last season.

    (official release)

    Well, I guess it all comes down to Hudson being claimed or not....time will tell.

    Re: Reds Claim Michael Gosling, DFA Luke Hudson

    I posted this on Marc's site (though here it's slightly corrected):

    Folks may remember that Gosling faced off against Eric Milton (and won) in one of Milton's best starts of the year here in Arizona. Milton went the first ~6 innings pitching scoreless baseball, but then allowed a Tony Clark HR. D-Backs won 2-0.

    The Reds couldn't do anything against this kid that time around. Didn't help that Milton failed to advance the runner in a bunt situation twice of course.

    Might turn out to be a decent pickup(?). That said, his minor league numbers have not been good since AA in '02, although he did strike out 7k/9 in AAA last year. In MLB, he's walked 4 more than he has struck out in 57 innings. Eek.

    Hudson went 6-9 with a 6.38 ERA in 19 games, 16 of them starts, for the Reds last season.
    Luke's season last year was the 22nd worst era for a guy with less than 85 IP and 15-20 starts in all of baseball history.

    Ironically enough, I wonder if it was Beattie's special advisement that Luke was not a pitcher we should hold onto, or that we could "afford to take a risk on?"

    I don't have much of a problem with this move. At least the organization has finally realized what they have with Luke Hudson.......not much. One question I have on Gosling...........how did he get called up with Arizona twice? His numbers in AAA in 2004 and 2005 were pretty bad.
    How do we know he's not Mel Torme?
