MLB Notes: Orlando Hudson mounts comeback attempt in Mexico

By on 12/05/2013 06:37:00 PM

Two-time All-Star second baseman Orlando Hudson has agreed to terms with the Mazatlan Venados of the Mexican Winter League. According to Jen Royle of the Boston Glove, the soon to be 36-year old will make Mexico the first step in a comeback attempt after sitting out the entirety of 2013.
Affectionately known as "O-Dog",  Hudson collected four Gold Gloves over the course of an 11-season, 6-team career in the big leagues. Posting a lifetime batting line of .273/.341/.412, the South Carolina native was regarded as one of the premier infielders of the mid-2000's.

Hudson's career essentially came to a halt following a miserable 2012 season split between San Diego and the Chicago White Sox. Relegated to a bench role for the first time in his career, Hudson slashed his way to a paltry .204/.261/.312 batting line while primarily playing third base in Chicago. Plagued by groin and foot injuries, he failed to receive an offer after the season.
