Tim Hudson Carted Off In Flushing, Fractures Ankle Covering First- Done For 2013

((HT:_markberry on MobyPicture))

Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson was carted off the field in Queens after trying to beat Eric Young, Junior to the bag covering first on a ground ball in the bottom of the 8th inning...

This is not pretty and the squeamish really should think twice before hitting "Play..."
The Braves starters had not missed a start in the first half of the season, but have had two go down since the All-Star return... Here's the broadcast version... ((HT: FS Braves)) Dan Uggla was asked about Hudson postgame: "He was in disbelief on the ground. I know he was in a lot of pain. He's one of those guys you love. He's devastated."
As of 2040HRS, Braves Manager Fredi Gonzalez did not have an injury update. He has not had the chance to speak to Braves trainer Jeff Porter to get his feedback... but it was disclosed that Hudson has fractured his right ankle.

When he returns to Atlanta, Hudson will have surgery to repair the damage. He is done for the 2013 season.
