The New York Mets have acquired catcher Joe Hudson from the Chicago Cubs, according to both of the teams transaction logs on MLB.com. Joe Hudson has been in the minor leagues most of his career, he will be a depth piece for the Mets at the catchers position. Hudson was assigned to Double-A Binghamton.


Joe Hudson was drafted in the 2012 MLB draft by the Cincinnati Reds in the 6th round. Hudson then made his MLB debut with the Los Angeles Angels in 2018. He only played a few more years in the majors. The last time Joe Hudson was in the MLB was in 2020 when he played with the Seattle Mariners. Now, Joe Hudson will be in the Mets minor league system.


Joe Hudson has only played two games this year. Although, last season Hudson was pretty solid. Last year in 69 games, Joe Hudson slashed .232/.371/.395, with 9 HR's, 37 RBI's, 44 BB's, 9 2B's, 51 hits, and a .766 OPS.


Teams can always use minor league depth. Actually, you need minor league depth. That's what the Mets are getting with Joe Hudson. The Mets will now have more options at the catcher position if they need it. Joe Hudson has some experience in the majors, so that helps also.
