Braves’ RHP Tim Hudson Carted Off Field With Ankle Injury

Braves right-hander Tim Hudson had to be carted off the field Wednesday night at New York’s Citi Field after suffering a major right ankle injury in the eighth inning of his start against the Mets.

Hudson had thrown 7 2/3 scoreless innings when he made contact with the Mets’ Eric Young Jr. at the first base bag. Young stepped flush across Hudson’s ankle while trying to plant his lead foot, and the result was gruesome. You can see the video here [2] if you’re not squeamish.

UPDATE: Hudson suffered a fractured right ankle. Surgery will be performed once the swelling goes down. He’s also out for the season [3].
