The Dodgers got themselves a relative bargain by signing a Gold Glove second basemen for under $5 million this offseason.
They'll likely be rewarded as Orlando Hudson is having an All-Star season.
Chase Utley has more home runs than Hudson and a higher OPS, but Hudson leads the NL in hits and isn't supposed to be a power hitter for the NL-leading Dodgers.
His defense is arguably the best of any second basemen in the majors as he's got Gold Gloves from both leagues to prove it.
Hitting for the cycle early this season at Dodger Stadium proved how good and how versatile he is as a player. Despite the home run disparity, Hudson actually has more extra-base hits than Utley, and a batting average 40 points higher.
Stats: .332 BA, 3 HR, 31 RBI, 4 SB, .407 OBP, and .877 OPS.
