For the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery, Daniel Hudson threw off a mound. The Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher still has a ways to go before he can get back into the starting rotation, but throwing off a mound is a big step in the recovery process.
According to Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic, Hudson threw a bullpen sessions yesterday. This comes just nine months after his Tommy John surgery.
RHP Daniel Hudson finished a bullpen session about a half hour ago, his first time throwing off the mound since having Tommy John surgery.

Hudson has shown promise in the Diamondbacks' rotation. He went 16-12 with a 3.49 ERA in 2011. However, lingering pain and injury issues that led to his eventual surgery prevented Hudson from replicating that success in 2012. In his limited action, Hudson went 3-2 with a 7.35 ERA last year.
