The Atlanta Braves lost their ace Tim Hudson earlier this year to a grisly ankle injury. The ailment required season-ending surgery, and it wasn’t clear how it or if it would impact the veteran’s 2014 campaign. While he hasn’t pitched since suffering the injury in July, Hudson expects to be 100 percent by November, according to MLB Trade Rumors. Hudson will hit the free agent market this winter, and if all goes according to the report, he should be available to throw for teams in time to sign before the end of the year. He will join fellow veterans such as Hiroki Kuroda as an option for contenders hoping to bolster their rotation. The ankle injury Hudson suffered was severe, and it’s to be determined how he’ll be and how long it will take him to return to form. MLBTR.com mentions that this is likely to lead to an incentive-laden contract, which would make sense for both Hudson and potential suitors. The 38-year-old made $9 million this season, posting an ERA and WHIP of 3.97 and 1.188 over 131 1/3 innings prior to his injury. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?
