|2014 Regular Season|
Hudson made his major league debut with the Athletics in 1999 and went 92-39 in six seasons with Oakland, where the right-hander teamed with Mark Mulder and Barry Zito to form a successful ''Big Three.'' ¶ The 38-year-old went 8-7 with a 3.97 ERA in 21 starts this season for Atlanta.
Atlanta may attempt to re-sign the 38-year-old Hudson, whose season ended with a broken ankle on July 24.
Hudson, 38, sat in the clubhouse Friday waiting to have his cast and staples removed and replaced with a walking boot. He underwent season-ending surgery two weeks ago and begins treatment soon.
The team says Hudson will have season-ending surgery in Atlanta once the swelling subsides. The right-hander was injured Wednesday night when Eric Young Jr. of the New York Mets inadvertently stepped on the back of Hudson's right leg while the pitcher was covering first base.
Hudson immediately went down in obvious pain, and Young rushed over to check on him. The crowd at Citi Field groaned when the replay was shown on the big video board. EMS workers strapped Hudson to a backboard and drove him off the field on a cart as fans applauded.
Hudson dueled winning pitcher Zack Greinke through seven innings, allowing one run and four hits. He struck out five and walked none in his first start against the Dodgers since 2011.
Hudson allowed an unearned run and three hits. It's a positive step after he went 0-3 with an 8.69 ERA over his previous four outings.
Hudson matched a season worst by allowing six runs and eight hits in six innings, extending his winless streak to four starts. "Obviously, the results stink for me right now and for our club,'' Hudson said.
Hudson (4-2, 4.70 ERA) was cruising until the fourth when the Giants batted around and scored six runs. The Braves' veteran right-hander had been 6-0 with a 2.48 ERA against San Francisco since losing to them on April 8, 2006.
Hudson (3-1) dominated the Nationals through seven innings, striking out six and walking two while giving up one run. The 37-year-old right-hander became the third active pitcher with 200 wins, joining Andy Pettitte (248) and Roy Halladay (201). Hudson is 200-105 in his career, including 92 wins while with Oakland from 1999-2004.
