ATLANTA (AP) - Braves pitcher Tim Hudson will make his first big league appearance in more than a year on Monday, replacing Kenshin
Kawakami for a start against the Florida Marlins.
Hudson was the ace of the Atlanta staff before his season-ending elbow ligament-replacement surgery on Aug. 8, 2008. Now, nearly 13
months later and after more than a month of rehab starts in the minors, the right-hander is set to rejoin a rotation that is already one of the strongest in the big leagues.
Hudson was 11-7 with a 3.17 ERA when he blew out his elbow. He could become a free agent after this season.
