San Francisco, CA (SportsNetwork.com) - The San Francisco Giants added another proven arm to an already distinguished starting rotation, making their two- year deal with Tim Hudson official on Tuesday.

Per club policy, no financial terms were released.

The deal is reportedly worth $23 million, according to several media outlets, and is the Giants' second major offseason move in regards to a starting pitcher. The team re-signed two-time National League Cy Young Award recipient Tim Lincecum to a reported two-year, $35 million pact last month.

Hudson, who is recovering from a fractured right ankle that cut short his 2013 campaign in late July, ends a successful nine-year run with the Atlanta Braves and returns to the Bay Area. He spent his first six major league seasons with the Oakland Athletics prior to being traded to the Braves in December of 2004.

The 38-year-old had posted at least 16 wins in three straight seasons with Atlanta before going 8-7 with a 3.97 earned run average in 21 starts this past year. Hudson owns an overall record of 205-111 over his 15 seasons, the third- highest winning percentage among all active hurlers with at least 100 decisions.

Hudson compiled a 113-72 mark with a 3.56 ERA over 244 appearances (243 starts) with the Braves and has been an All-Star three times, most recently in 2010.

The veteran right-hander joins a San Francisco rotation that has three other one-time All-Stars in Lincecum, Matt Cain and Madison Bumgarner. The Giants opted not to retain Barry Zito, Hudson's longtime teammate in Oakland, and Ryan Vogelsong by declining club options on both.
