Hudson undergoes season-ending wrist surgeryPosted: Updated:
PHOENIX (AP) -- Arizona Diamondbacks second baseman Orlando Hudson will miss the rest of the season after undergoing surgery late Saturday night to repair a dislocated bone in his left wrist.
Hudson injured his wrist on a wild play during the sixth inning of the Atlanta Braves' 11-4 win over the Diamondbacks. Hudson lunged to his left to try to field an errant throw from pitcher Juan Cruz when Braves catcher Brian McCann slid into Hudson, bending his left wrist backward.
Hudson's surgery was the first of two procedures that will be performed. He was placed on the 15-day disabled before yesterday's game.
Arizona promoted outfielder Jeff Salazar from Triple-A Tucson to replace Hudson on the roster.
