MLB Injury News:
Altanta Braves' pitcher Tim Hudson had surgery on his right ankle on Friday and is expected to need three to four months to recover.
As reported by Eric Single of MLB.com,
""He's got a fracture, he's got a dislocation, and they'll get in there
and find out what kind of ligament involvement," Braves general manager
Frank Wren said. "There's a number of things they're going to be fixing
"Hudson received plenty of teammates in his hotel room the night of the
injury and was given a standing ovation in Citi Field as he was carted
off. Gonzalez said he had received multiple texts from former teammates
of Hudson passing along their thoughts and best wishes, and the manager
planned to reconnect with one of his clubhouse leaders later this
weekend after he recovers from the surgery."
The injury comes at a bad time for the Braves. They have played just .500 baseball over the last ten games. Fortunately for the team, the Nationals and Phillies are both 3-7 in their last ten and are 8 1/2 and 9 games behind, respectively.
Hudson, a 15 year veteran, has a career record of 205-111 with a 3.44 earned run average. He will finish this season with a record of 8-7 and a 3.97 earned run average in 21 games.
