Diamondbacks Injury Update: Daniel Hudson returns to mound in Rookie league start

By on 8/06/2014 10:15:00 AM

The Arizona Diamondbacks fell to 49-64 on the season following a 12-2 thrashing at the hands of the Kansas City Royals.  The pitching staff, which has struggled all season to 25th in the Major Leagues in ERA, allowed 15 hits and three home runs.  Injuries have also taken its toll, as five pitchers and ten Diamondbacks overall are on the disabled list. There is some good news on the injury front as pitcher Daniel Hudson made his first rehab start last night since Tommy John surgery.

Hudson had been throwing bullpen sessions since June and continued to progress to where he was ready for a rehab start. Hudson had to have his surgery redone last year when he was just a few weeks away from playing. When he returns, the Diamondbacks will use him out of the bullpen

According to, Hudson started for the AZL D-Backs last night and threw four innings. He allowed three earned runs on five hits, no walks and struck out five. The D-Backs lost the game by the score of 3-2, but it was a good outing in Hudson's first rehab start.

Hudson was drafted by the Chicago White Sox in the 5th round of the 2008 amateur draft. He only pitched in four games for the White Sox in 2009 and 2010 before moving on to the Diamondbacks.  In 2011, Hudson was a 16 game winner and posted an ERA of 3.49.  In 62 career games, his record is 28-17 with a 3.68 ERA.
