Arizona Diamondbacks: Update On Hudson Injury - No Structural Damage

The Arizona Diamondbacks twitter offered some updated information on right handed pticher Daniel Hudson's shoulder injury:

Gibby on @DHuddy41 injury - "MRI showed no structural damage. At this point in the season, we're not going to push him through."

Hudson was placed on the 15 day DL earlier today with a right shoulder impingement. Hudson had been less than impressive so far this year, allowing 12 earned runs in 18 innings, posting a 1-1 record so far in 2012. Wade Miley has been mentioned as a possible replacement, temporarily moving out of the bullpen and into the rotation. That would make sense in light of the fact that the Diamondbacks also made a call to their Triple-A affiliate, calling up right handed reliever Jonathan Albaladejo.

Hudson has been in good spirits on twitter, thanking fans for their support and calling the injury a "rough little stretch."
