Tim Hudson feels “good enough” to face Yankees tomorrow

Tim Hudson missed his scheduled Sunday start because of bone chips in his ankle, but the Braves right-hander will avoid the disabled list and take his next turn in the rotation tomorrow against the Yankees.

Hudson threw a bullpen session yesterday and told David O’Brien of the Atlanta Journal Constitution that his ankle “felt all right” after receiving a cortisone shot during his time off.

Hudson went on to say that his ankle is “good enough” and “pretty close” to 100 percent, but the injury has lingered and will definitely be worth keeping an eye on. Prior to the missed start Hudson had a 3.83 ERA and 31/15 K/BB ratio in 54 innings, doing his usual extreme ground-baller thing by allowing just one homer.

    If you look inside the numbers Hudson has pitched to a 5.92 era at home with a 5.24 era during night games.
    Pitching against a strong AL lineup at home tomorrow night will be a challenge.
    By the 4th or 5th inning tomorrow night those old bone spurs might be hurting again.

    Hoping that ankle is bothering him enough to leave some pitches hanging in the strike zone.

    Am I the only one who read the title, and got an image of Stuart Smalley?

      Fabulous! I didn’t visualize that at first but it’s hilarious.
