Tim Hudson Injury: Braves Starter To Make 2012 Debut Sunday

Tim Hudson will make his 2012 season debut for the Braves on Sunday against the Pittsburgh Pirates. Hudson had spinal fusion surgery during the offseason and began the year on the disabled list. Hudson was shooting for a late April or early May return and was right on schedule after four minor league rehab starts.

Hudson struggled in both of his starts for Single-A Rome but the goal at that stop was to simply build stamina. He was much sharper in two starts for Triple-A Gwinnett where he allowed one earned run in two starts.

Hudson's return to the rotation didn't quite go as expected. Most figured it would be Randall Delgado that would be sent down to make room for Hudson on the roster. However, Jair Jurrjens struggles led to a surprise demotion for the former All-Star.
