Tim Hudson‘s encore for his 13th career shutout will have to wait a little while.
David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that Hudson has been scratched from tomorrow’s start against the Blue Jays as he deals with bone spurs in his left ankle. Prospect right-hander Julio Teheran will be called up from Triple-A Gwinnett to start in his place.
Hudson was given a cortisone shot in the ankle and the Braves hope to have him available to start Wednesday against the Yankees. The veteran right-hander missed the start of the season following surgery to repair a herniated disk in his back, but has a solid 3.83 ERA and 31/15 K/BB ratio over eight starts.
Teheran, who was ranked as the No. 5 prospect in the game by Baseball America during the offseason, has a 3.15 ERA and 43/21 K/BB ratio in 54 1/3 innings over 11 starts at the Triple-A level this year. The 21-year-old right-hander made his major league debut last season and had a 5.03 ERA in three starts and two relief appearances.
