The assumptions made Wednesday were correct.

As first reported by MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert, then confirmed moments later by the player himself, Diamondbacks right-hander Daniel Hudson needs Tommy John reconstructive elbow surgery.

Hudson was diagnosed earlier this week with a torn ulnar collateral ligament and got the same news Friday in a second opinion from Dr. Lewis Yocum.

Hudson is likely to be out through the 2013 All-Star break. The 25-year-old right-hander owns a solid 3.68 career ERA and 1.21 career WHIP.
