San Francisco Giants’ pitcher Tim Hudson underwent ankle surgery for which the recovery time is approximately two months, so it is likely that the veteran starter won’t be ready for the start of spring training.
He is, however, expected to be ready to go on Opening Day. Of course, it’s likely he will not start that game as the Giants’ will probably start World Series MVP Madison Bumgarner. Hudson is still hoping to be ready to play earlier than expected.
“Recovering well,” Hudson said on Tuesday. “I feel very confident about being ready in time for spring.”
Hudson first underwent surgery on his right ankle in 2013 while playing for the Atlanta Braves. New York Mets’ Eric Young Jr. accidentally stepped on the back of Hudson’s leg while running to first as Hudson was covering the bag to make the out. Hudson’s ankle was broken and he was sidelined for the final two months of the 2013 season.
