From beat writer Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic comes word that Diamondbacks right-hander Daniel Hudson threw off a mound Tuesday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery last July 9.

Diamondbacks GM Kevin Towers told reporters after the workout was through that Hudson should be ready to rejoin the Snakes’ starting rotation sometime around the 2013 All-Star break.

Hudson, 26, posted a superb 3.49 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 169/50 K/BB ratio over 222 innings in 2011. He had a 7.35 ERA, 1.63 WHIP and 37/12 K/BB ratio in 45 1/3 innings last year before going under the knife.

Arizona’s season-opening rotation will be Ian Kennedy, Brandon McCarthy, Trevor Cahill, Wade Miley and Patrick Corbin. We’re picking the Diamondbacks to finish third in the National League West.

    Can I point out that Craig said it was bad of Topps to use that picture on Hudson’s card yet you guys use the same for the picture to stories involving him.

    It should be noted though that this was NOT part of his recovery from TJ.

    He just happened to be standing on the mound with a baseball when a Topps employee walked by.
