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.

Giants vs. Royals: Breaking Down Historical Achievements from World Series

Oct 30 2014 12:00pm CDT | Source: Bleacher Report

It was only fitting that the back-and-forth 2014 World Series went the full seven games, and it was only fitting that the superstar of the entire playoffs propelled the San Francisco Giants to yet another title. Madison Bumgarner was the hero of the Giants’ 3-2 victory in Game 7 and the MVP of a series that was loaded with historical achievements. In an unsurprising twist, Bumgarner is at the center ...

Bochy made all the right moves on way to title

The easiest decision Bruce Bochy had all night was when to put Madison Bumgarner in the game. The hardest thing was supposed to be deciding when to take him out. Actually it wasn’t that tough. You don’t win three World Series in five years without knowing that sometimes the best buttons are the ones not pushed.
