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.
