Tim Hudson‘s third minor-league rehab start was a big improvement over his first two outings, as the rehabbing right-hander threw five innings of one-run ball at Triple-A last night.
Hudson, who’s recovering from November back surgery, threw 48 of 76 pitches for strikes while allowing two hits and three walks with four strikeouts. He also induced eight ground balls, which is a good sign.
Barring a setback it looks like Hudson will make one final rehab outing at Triple-A on Tuesday, with the goal being somewhere around six innings and 100 pitches, and then come off the disabled list on April 29 or 30.
