Daniel Hudson Injury: D-backs Starter Throws First Bullpen Session

According to a report form NBC Hardball Talk's Aaron Gleeman, Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Daniel Hudson threw a bullpen session of a mound on Tuesday, the first time doing so since being place on the DL back on April 21.

Hudson told reporters that he "felt good" and "wanted to keep going."

The 25-year old righty will likely need to get a few more bullpen sessions and live batting practice under his belt before the Diamondbacks are comfortable putting Hudson in a minor-league rehab assignment. A return to Arizona's starting rotation by the end of the month is looking right on track barring any setbacks.

Hudson was solid in 2011, tossing 222 innings for Arizona with a 3.49 ERA and 169/50 K/BB ratio last season, working his way to a 16-12 record en route to the D-backs NL West title.
