Braves RHP Hudson to have surgery on broken ankle

July 25th, 2013 - By Steve James

Tim Hudson needs surgery on his

broken right ankle, an injury that leaves the NL East-leading

Atlanta Braves without one of their top pitchers.

Hudson got hurt while covering first base Wednesday

night against the New York Mets when Eric Young Jr. stepped on the

back of his lower leg. The 38-year-old right-hander was carted off

the field in obvious pain.

Hudson had X-rays at Citi Field and the Braves say he

will undergo surgery in Atlanta once the swelling goes down. It’s

unclear how long he will be out or whether he’ll be able to pitch

again this season.
