 Biographical Information
Hudson was the key player given up by the Chicago White Sox to acquire Edwin Jackson from the Arizona Diamondbacks at the trading deadline in 2010. Hudson was immediately successful for his new team, earning the National League's Rookie Player of the Month honors for August. He went 4-1 with a 1.85 ERA over the month, while striking out 42 in 43 2/3 innings.
On June 26, 2012, Hudson left a start against the Atlanta Braves with pain in his elbow. He was diagnosed the next day with a torn ligament in his elbow, a condition that led to Tommy John surgery, which was performed on July 9th. He was struggling with a record of 3-2, 7.35 at the time. Still recovering from the surgery, he was placed on the D-Backs' 60-day disabled list at the start of spring training in 2013. He made a first rehabilitation start with the AA Mobile Bay Bears on June 4th and felt more pain; he was diagnosed with another tear and was operated on a second time. He finally made it back to the majors on September 3, 2014, pitching an inning in relief against the San Diego Padres, completing a very long circle that saw him be out of the majors for 799 days.
