Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Daniel Hudson was beginning his road to recovery from Tommy John surgery but it did not go well as it got cut short. Hudson was pitching last night for the Diamondbacks Double-A affiliate the Mobile BayBears. In that game, he would only pitch two innings, give up two hits, one earned run, one walk, and strike out one.

Here is a tweet from MLB.com’s Steve Gilbert:

The last time Hudson took the mound in a major league game was on June 26, 2012 against the Atlanta Braves. In that game versus the Braves, he only pitched 1 2/3 innings as he gave up seven hits, five earned runs and only threw 53 pitches. Hopefully Hudson can make a return back to the Diamondbacks starting rotation sooner than later because it would be a huge lift to the team because we all remember what Hudson is capable of doing in a season.

Remember back in the 2011 season when the Diamondbacks went to the playoffs. Hudson and Ian Kennedy were at the front end of the staff. That year Hudson went 16-12 with a 3.49 ERA and pitched 222 innings.
