Tim Hudson Suffers Fractured Ankle – VIDEO
Atlanta Braves right-handed pitcher Tim Hudson will miss the remainder of the 2013 Major League Baseball season, after suffering a fractured ankle, during a game on Wednesday night against the New York Mets at Citi Field.
Hudson was tossing a shutout in the eighth inning when Eric Young Jr. hit a ground ball that was knocked down by Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, who then flipped the ball to Hudson, who was covering the bag.
Young then accidentally stepped on the back of Hudson’s lower leg, forcing the ankle fracture, which will require surgery.
The 38-year old Hudson, who has 205 career victories, was 8-7 for the first place Braves this season, with a 3.97 ERA.
The video is below, but it is graphic, so don’t watch if you’re squeamish.
