1 Comment

Tim Hudson underwent surgery to remove bone spurs from his right ankle, the Giants announced.

The expected recovery timetable is approximately eight weeks, which means Hudson will get a late start to spring training and any sort of setback could put the 39-year-old’s status for Opening Day in jeopardy.

Hudson has already said that he plans to retire after the season, which will be his second in San Francisco after throwing 189 innings with a 3.57 ERA for the Giants in the first year of a two-year, $23 million contract.
