Daniel Hudson has had rotten luck. His once-promising career was derailed by two Tommy John surgeries, with the second one required after tearing a ligament while rehabbing the first. But he’s almost back again.
Hudson made a rehab appearance at Triple-A Reno last night and tossed a scoreless inning. He’s thrown five overall rehab innings and has allowed only one run. Kirk Gibson said he’ll do it again on Friday before joining the big club. During his time in Arizona he’ll probably be used as a reliever, though he could be back starting next season.
Gotta wish this guy luck. Not only has his young career been screwed up with injuries, but one time his injury actually made it onto a baseball card. Which, man, that’s cold.
