Dan Hudson on the way

Dan Hudson is on his way to the Major Leagues.

At least, that’s what the young right-hander is saying.

According to a Tuesday report in the Newport News Daily Press, Hudson said that he was told by the coaches at Triple-A Charlotte that he soon will be joining the White Sox. The 22-year-old right-hander, selected in the fifth round of the 2008 First-Year Player Draft, has cruised through the White Sox Minor League system this year. He posted a 14-5 record and 2.32 ERA over 26 starts between stints with Class A Kannapolis, Class A Winston-Salem, Double-A Birmingham and Charlotte. He fanned 166 over 147 1/3 innings.

During stops for the Barons and Knights, the highest levels of Minor League competition, Hudson has a perfect 9-0 record with a 2.02 ERA.

Hudson threw just three innings at Norfolk on Tuesday, striking out five, before telling the publication about the big conversation he had with pitching coach Richard Dotson.

“When they told me, I did a double-take. They had to tell me twice before I believed them,” said Hudson of reportedly getting called up after rosters expanded on Sept. 1. “It’s an awesome feeling. Just an amazing feeling.”

White sox pitching coach Don Cooper was asked Wednesday about Hudson’s arrival, but he deferred the decision to general manager Ken Williams as his call. Having pitched three innings Tuesday, Hudson won’t pitch Thursday against the Cubst. But he could get a chance when the fifth starter comes around next, depending on Jake Peavy’s recovery and the White Sox playoff standing.
