After Tim Hudson's season-ending ankle injury, many were concerned on how the Atlanta Braves pitcher would recover, especially considering his age. Today, Hudson took to MLB Network in a radio interview to respond.
Hudson on being ready for spring training: "We're looking at being totally healed from this thing at the end of Nov or beginning of Dec."
Hudson said he and his family plan on being completely removed from his ankle injury and the ensuing rehabilitation procession by early December, while going on to state that he will be completely ready for spring training next year.
It will be interesting to see if any contract negotiations occur this off-season between the veteran pitcher and the Braves, considering the Braves have put together an entire rotation after losing Hudson and Paul Maholm to injury.
It should be noted that since both Hudson and Maholm's injury, the Braves starting rotation hasn't skipped a beat in its consistency and dominance, with Alex Wood and Brandon Beachy replacing the two injured starters.
