    Hudson will be part of a closer-by-committee situation while Sean Doolittle (knee) is on the 10-day injured list, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.

    Impact

    Doolittle was placed on the IL with knee tendinitis and is not expected to be sidelined long. While he is out, Hudson, Hunter Strickland and Fernando Rodney will be the top options for saves. Manager Dave Martinez says he will play the matchups in the ninth inning.

    News

    Hudson allowed three hits and no walks while striking out two across 1.1 innings to earn the save Tuesday against the Reds.

    Impact

    Sean Doolittle had pitched three times in four days leading up to the Nationals' contest Tuesday, opening the door for Hudson to earn a save chance. He made things interesting, surrendering a leadoff double and allowing the winning run to come to the plate in the ninth frame, prior to striking out Tucker Barnhart to end the game. Though he isn't likely to get more than a handful of save chances prior to the end of the season, Hudson has pitched well since being dealt to the Nationals, allowing one earned run in 6.2 frames while striking out seven and walking one.
