SAN FRANCISCO, Nov. 18 (UPI) -- The San Francisco Giants announced Monday they have signed free agent starting pitcher Tim Hudson to a two-year contract.

Terms of the deal weren't disclosed, but it was reported to be worth $23 million.

The signing came after the Giants inked two-time National League Cy Young Award winner Tim Lincecum to a two-year contract last month.

Hudson, 38, went 8-7 with a 3.97 earned run average in 21 starts for the Atlanta Braves this past season after missing the second half of the campaign with a fractured right ankle.

After spending his first six seasons with the Oakland Athletics, he was traded to Atlanta in 2004. There he compiled a 113-72 mark with a 3.56 ERA over nine years, including three All-Star Game appearances.

Hudson is 205-111 overall in 15 seasons.
