FOXSportsSouth.com invites you to meet the Braves as we continue a month-long look at our team, player-by-player. We'll revisit 2011 and project what 2012 might look like. Tim Hudson Position: P Height: 6-1;Weight: 175 BatThrow: RR Hometown: Phenix City, Ala. Experience: 13th year 2011 in review: Hudson led the Braves with 16 victories and 215 innings to go with a 3.22 ERA. He held the Brewers to one hit in a complete-game performance on May 4 as the Braves swept a doubleheader. Hudson, who has 33 victories with a 3.02 ERA the past two years, had back surgery on Nov. 28. Career highlight: He became a 20-game winner when he defeated Texas on the final game of the 2000 season, clinching the AL Western Division title for the As. Hudson was the NL Comeback Player of the Year in 2010, winning 17 games a year after missing most of 2009 coming back from Tommy John surgery. Outlook: The back surgery will force Hudson to miss at least the first month of the season, but hes progressing well, according to published reports. You should know: Hudson was an outstanding hitter in college, playing outfield when he wasnt pitching. He hit .396 with 18 home runs and 95 RBIs his season year at Auburn in 1997, also going 15-2 on the mound.
