Braves starter Tim Hudson had surgery last night to fix a fractured fibula and the deltoid ligament in his right ankle, per the Braves official Twitter. Hudson suffered the injuries on Wednesday covering first base on a ground ball hit by Eric Young, Jr. Young awkwardly stepped on Hudson’s foot, causing the injury.

Hudson’s 2013 season ends after 21 starts spanning 131.1 innings with a 3.97 ERA, his seventh consecutive season in which he finished with an ERA below 4.00. Now 38 years old, Hudson is eligible for free agency after the season.

LOS ANGELES — The Los Angeles Dodgers agreed to terms with infielder Miguel Rojas on a one-year, $6 million deal that takes him through the 2024 season.

The contract includes a salary of $5 million in 2024 and a club option salary of $5 million in 2025 with a $1 million buyout and charitable contributions.

The 33-year-old Rojas was acquired last month from the Miami Marlins for minor league infielder Jacob Amaya. He returns to the Dodgers for the second time, having made 85 appearances with the club in 2014 as a rookie.

Rojas hit .236 with six home runs and 36 RBIs in 140 games last season. He’s been in the majors for parts of nine seasons while playing five different defensive positions.
