On April 9th, Jack Macgruder of the East Valley Tribune said that D’Backs second baseman Orlando Hudson seeks $15MM per year for his next contract. That would suggest he is in Chase Utley‘s class.
MLB.com’s Barry Bloom inquired with Hudson on this topic today but didn’t get much out of him. Hudson did tell Bloom that Macgruder’s report was false, though. Hudson also made a point to say that he’d love to stay in Arizona.
