Hudson gave up two hits and three walks, retiring 12 straight at one point, as he moved to 6-0 all-time in Triple-A games. Hudson is recovering from spine-fusion surgery from November and is scheduled to join the Braves at the end of the month. He is scheduled to make one more start with Triple-A Gwinnett next week and could join the team shortly after.
Hudson gave up two runs (one earned) in his season-debut with Class-A Rome, but gave up five runs on nine hits over four innings in his second start with Rome.
The 36-year-old Hudson would be playing in his 14th Major League season this year. He went 16-10 with a 3.22 ERA last season. He is one strikeout away from 1,700 in his career.
