Across four incomplete seasons between 2009-12, Daniel Hudson was a pretty good starting pitcher. Across 58 starts and four relief appearances, the right-hander compiled a 3.68 ERA and a 304/98 K/BB ratio in 381 1/3 innings. But he suffered a shoulder injury in early 2012 followed by an elbow injury later that season, which forced him to undergo Tommy John surgery. Hudson had Tommy John surgery for a second time, a revision, in June 2013.
After a long road back, Hudson will return to the major leagues. He’ll join the Diamondbacks on Tuesday or Wednesday and contribute out of the bullpen, Jack Magruder of FOX Sports Arizona reports. Hudson will be limited to a 25-30 pitch count.
Hudson made four one-inning rehab appearances in the Arizona League and two one-inning stints with Triple-A Reno. He allowed one run on five hits and a walk while striking out seven.
