Dodgers confirm top set-up reliever Hudson lost for season
Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Daniel Hudson was placed on the injury list Saturday with a season-ending torn left ACL.

The Tigers have a decision ahead. Here’s why they should tender a contract to Matthew Boyd.
But the similarities between Heaney and longtime Tigers starting pitcher Matthew Boyd are difficult to ignore. The Tigers have until Dec. 2 to tender Boyd a contract, which commits them to resolving his salary through the arbitration process. If the Tigers don’t offer Boyd a contract -- if they “non-tender” him -- he will become a free agent. It wouldn’t be a surprise if he tells the Tigers, “Tender me or I’ll simply accept free agency and see what’s out there.”If that’s the case, the ball is in the Tigers’ court. If Boyd and the Tigers agreed to that hypothetical $7.5 million deal for 2022, the Tigers would have two escape routes in the event his rehabilitation doesn’t go as planned.mlive.com
