The injury woes continue for the Arizona Diamondbacks who last night announced starting pitcher Daniel Hudson was being placed on their 15-day disabled list. Hudson’s dealing with discomfort in his right shoulder. To replace Hudson on their roster, the Diamondbacks have recalled right-handed reliever Jonathan Albaladejo.
Hudson is hoping to return after his required 15-day stint on the DL as an MRI revealed no structural damage to his shoulder. Hudson’s last start came Wednesday against the Pittsburgh Pirates, but the Diamondbacks say the shoulder injury occurred during his previous appearance on April 13.
Hudson entered the season as the Diamondbacks second starter following his impressive 2011 campaign. Last year for Arizona, Hudson maintained an ERA and WHIP of 3.49 and 1.203 over his 33 starts and 222 innings pitched.
Arizona hasn’t yet announced how it will replace Hudson in their starting rotation. Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson told reporters that he might use former first round pick Wade Miley for Hudson’s next scheduled start on Monday if the left-hander isn’t needed this weekend. Beyond Monday’s start Gibson said the Diamondbacks would look to reevaluate their starting pitching situation.
