FOXSports.com is reporting that the Dodgers are leading in the Orlando Hudson sweepstakes. Hudson, who hit .305 with 8 HR in 107 games last season, would cost the Dodgers a first round draft pick. However, the Dodgers will receive a pick between the first and second rounds, as well as the Braves' second round pick for losing Derek Lowe. Hudson would give the Dodgers a solid up the middle tandem, as well as a speed at the top of the order.
The Royals, Cardinals, and White Sox have all expressed interest in Hudson.
