Daniel Hudson already throwing, still eyes early return from injury

Daniel Shirey-US PRESSWIRE

Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Daniel Hudson is already throwing and will eye a return from injury.

Arizona Diamondbacks right-handed pitcher Daniel Hudson has already begun to start throwing the baseball more. Vince Marotta of Arizona Sports filed this report that has Hudson throwing a baseball again.


Hudson's 2012 season ended after he suffered ligament damage in his right elbow back in July, and it was later discovered that he required Tommy John surgery for everything to fully heal. Hudson would usually spend 12 to 18 months recovering from Tommy John surgery, as that is the prescribed timetable for this type of injury. The right-hander pitched a 7.35 ERA this year, going 3-2 in his nine starts while pitching 45-plus innings. Hudson was the slated second pitcher for Arizona this season before his injury. Hudson apparently will seem to go out of his way to return before August though.

Hudson was traded from the Chicago White Sox on July 2010, and finished 7-1 that season with Arizona, then won 16 games with the Diamondbacks in 2011.
