Diamondbacks right-hander Daniel Hudson underwent surgery
Monday to fix a UCL injury, and according to his twitter
account, things went well.
Daniel is out of
surgery and resting up for the long road ahead. Surgery went
beautifully! Thanks to y’all for your thoughts and prayers!

We still don’t know the extent of the damage in Hudson’s
elbow or how long he will be out, but the standard recovery
from Tommy John surgery takes at least least one year.
Hudson has not pitched since June 26. Though he struggled
this season to the tune of a 3-2 record and 7.35 ERA, his
loss is one the D-backs are still trying to overcome.
