Giants' Tim Hudson 'pretty sure' 2015 his last

AUBURN, Ala. (AP) San Francisco pitcher Tim Hudson says next season will probably be his last.

The 39-year-old right-hander finally reached and won the World Series in his 16th major league season. He said Tuesday he plans to fulfill his $23 million, two-year contract with the Giants then possibly call it a career.

Speaking at Auburn, where he played college baseball, Hudson said he's ''pretty sure that's going to be it.'' He started Game 7 of the World Series for the Giants after his 2013 season in Atlanta was cut short by an ankle injury.

He's hosting a charity event at Auburn this weekend and has already started training for the spring Monday. Hudson says the World Series left a short offseason but after going so long without making it, he's hardly complaining.
