Braves pitcher Tim Hudson underwent surgery today to repair a fractured fibula and the deltoid ligament in his right ankle.
The 38-year-old Hudson will be able to resume baseball activities in four months.
Hudson is also in the option year of his contract and will become a free agent at the end of the season, and everyone in the Braves' organization expects him to return next season.
Hudson had his ankle broken in the eighth inning Wednesday during the Braves' win over the New York Mets. Freddie Freeman bobbled Eric Young's groundball, and Young accidentally stepped on the back of Hudson's leg when he ran through the bag.
