Tim Hudson allowed two runs over three innings in his first minor-league rehab start Saturday at Single-A and he’s scheduled to take the mound for his second rehab outing Thursday.

David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution reports that Hudson is slated to throw around 65 pitches and four innings as he recovers from November back surgery and the plan still involves him making a total of 5-6 starts in the minors.

That puts Hudson in line for an early May return to the Braves’ rotation, at which point Randall Delgado may be headed back to Triple-A. Thursday’s start should provide a better idea of Hudson’s timetable, however, as O’Brien reports that both manager Fredi Gonzalez and pitching coach Roger McDowell will be in attendance with the Braves off that night.

    Come back to the Braves (and to my fantasy team), Huddy!!! Unfortunately, the Braves need you more than my fantasy squad, but your presence would certainly be loved by all. Too bad the Braves do not have Verlander and Cole Hamels filling the void while you’re away….that would be somethin’

    They also need a new third baseman hint David Wright.

    It’s too bad Fredi can’t figure out a way to get Jose Constanza on the Rome roster by Thursday.
