MLB: Braves SP Tim Hudson Out for Season With Broken Ankle

Jul 25 2013, 9:52pm CDT | by

Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Tim Hudson is out for the season after suffering a gruesome broken ankle injury in their 8-2 win over the New York Mets on Wednesday.

Atlanta Braves starting pitcher Tim Hudson is out for the season with a broken ankle injury. 

Hudson sustained the injury in the bottom of the eighth inning in the Braves' 8-2 win against the New York Mets. New York outfielder Eric Young, Jr. was trying to beat a throw on a groundout when he met Hudson, who was trying to make the play for Atlanta, at first base. Young inadvertently stepped on Hudson's right ankle which was still on the first-base bag. 

Hudson rolled his ankle due to the impact, stood up hopping and then fell to the ground in pain. He was carted off the field. X-rays revealed a fracture which necessitates season-ending surgery as soon as the swelling subsides, per the Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Young tried to fight back tears moments after what happened. 

"I'm hustling down the line like I always do, going for the base. I saw his foot as I'm going for the base, right there in the middle. As I came down, I knew I didn't get any of the base. I know I got all of his foot. I pretty much knew it was probably broke right as I did it and that's why I sprinted right back to him and tried to console him as much as I could and apologize."

Atlanta second baseman Dan Uggla knew Hudson, who has had to fight through Tommy John and back surgeries in the last five years, couldn't believe it. 

"He was kind of in disbelief. You could see the thoughts running through his head:'This can't be happening. This is unbelievable.'"

The Braves placed Hudsdon on the 15-day disabled list. They recalled LHP Alex Wood from Triple-A Gwinnett to be the starting pitcher against the Mets. He takes the place of Paul Maholm, who is also injured with a bruised left wrist

Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez said the team needs to rally behind the Hudson incident. 

"I think we've got to rally behind this, as a team and as a pitching staff. We're going to miss him, but we've got a good club."

Hudson concludes his 2013 MLB campaign with an 8-7 record with a 3.97 ERA.

How Huge Giants-Dodgers Clash Has Changed the NL Playoff Picture

Sep 14 2014 7:21pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

For the first time in a decade, the San Francisco Giants and Los Angeles Dodgers are locked in a heavyweight bout, with the National League West on the line.  Since 2005, the hated rivals have never been fewer than seven games apart when one team won the division. In other words, the rivalry has been mostly one-sided, though the winning side has fluctuated.  This year, the fight is on. Give Round 1, r ...

Dodgers 4, Giants 2: Clayton Kershaw, Most Valuable Everything

Sep 14 2014 6:02pm CDT | Source: Yardbarker: MLB

On Friday night, the Giants whomped the Dodgers, 9-0. On Saturday night, the Dodgers decimated the Giants, 17-0. For what was expected to be a very competitive series between the only two non-train wreck teams in the NL West, this weekend had turned into a hilarious joke that had seen both games all but over from the very start, as Hyun-jin Ryu and Tim Hudson had each lasted just a single inning. You had to figure that at least one of these games would actually be a contest, and today’ ...

Buster Posey's Return to MVP Form Makes Giants Very Dangerous Contender

Sep 11 2014 10:51pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

Buster Posey is back. You don't need to see the stat line to know this, although the stat line doesn't hurt: .309 batting average, 20 home runs and 82 RBI entering play Friday. Really, all you need to see is the San Francisco Giants catcher taking an at-bat. Pick an at-bat, any at-bat. Let's take one from Thursday's game, a 6-2 victory over the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Baseball perfectly clarifies imperfect home-plate collision rule

Sep 10 2014 9:01am CDT | Source: SBNation

Rule 7.13 will never be perfect, but it's unlikely to get better than this. Home-plate collisions are stupid, and you should feel bad about yourself if you disagree. That was the name of a section of related articles on Baseball Nation, and while a few of the articles vanished from the section after the de-Robbing, it still exists today. I'm proud of that tiny corner of the Internet I created, ...
