Jul 27, 2013, 7:15 PM EDT

Braves starter Tim Hudson had surgery last night to fix a fractured fibula and the deltoid ligament in his right ankle, per the Braves official Twitter. Hudson suffered the injuries on Wednesday covering first base on a ground ball hit by Eric Young, Jr. Young awkwardly stepped on Hudson’s foot, causing the injury.

Hudson’s 2013 season ends after 21 starts spanning 131.1 innings with a 3.97 ERA, his seventh consecutive season in which he finished with an ERA below 4.00. Now 38 years old, Hudson is eligible for free agency after the season.

    I hope he has a full recovery. I’ve always admired Hudson as a pitcher and I hope he can come back a play for a couple more seasons.

    Hopefull we can get him ramped back up and see him pitch again in the spring. Braves will offer him a year deal with an option for a 2nd and he will be back in a Braves uniform
