According to Steve Gilbert of MLB.com, the Diamondbacks have decided to shut down right-hander Daniel Hudson for the rest of the season. The good news is that it’s not injury-related for once.
Hudson, who is coming off two Tommy John surgeries, made it back to the majors this month for the first time since June 26, 2012. He ended up allowing four runs in 2 2/3 innings over three relief appearances, but the Diamondbacks are content with what they have seen and understandably don’t want to push him any further.
Here’s hoping Hudson has a normal offseason and picks up where he left off before all of these injuries put his career in doubt. If there’s any positive to take away, he doesn’t turn 28 until next March.
