Scary incident down in Miami, as Orlando Hudson had to be carried off the field on a stretcher during today’s Marlins-Padres game.
Hudson hurt himself when he slammed against the wall down the right field line while making a diving catch. He was on the ground for about five minutes, apparently unconscious during part of that time, as trainers attended to him. He was strapped into a stretcher and carted off the field. He was seen moving his arms and hands as he was being taken away.

Scary stuff.  We’ll update as we learn more.

UPDATE:  The Padres tweet that Hudson is “alert and at his locker moving around on his own.”  He’s going to undergo precautionary tests. The trainers said it “looked worse than it is.”

Good news.
