From Marc Lancaster:

The Reds released Luke Hudson and Bubba Nelson, and reassigned to minor league camp Aaron Herr, Anderson Machado, Derek Wathan and Josh Hall.

Outright release of Luke Hudson this early is a surprise to me.

    I always liked Luke Hudson.
    There were a lot of times he looked better than some of the guys we ran out there that threw like Dave Dravecky.

    Ditto on Hudson. It doesn’t make any sense to me based on his Spring performance.

    I liked Hudson too, but he just could never put more than a couple of good appearanced together before he stunk the joint up. I think his release this soon in spring training was so that he had enough time to find another MLB job. If that doesn’t happen, I wouldn’t be suprised if he signs a minor league deal with the Reds.
