PHOENIX (AP) -- Arizona Diamondbacks second baseman Orlando Hudson underwent surgery late Saturday night to repair a dislocated bone in his left wrist and will miss the remainder of the season.
Hudson injured his wrist on a wild play during the sixth inning of the Atlanta Braves' 11-4 win over the Diamondbacks on Saturday night. Hudson lunged to his left to try and field an errant throw from pitcher Juan Cruz when Braves catcher Brian McCann slid into Hudson, bending his left wrist backward and stripping the glove from his hand.
Hudson's surgery Saturday night was the first of two procedures that will be performed. He will have surgery within the next couple of days to repair ligament damage suffered on the play.
I wouldn't say Mac slid into Hudson. Hudson tried to tag Baby out, and his dainty little wrist was no match for our big, solid catcher. Mark Reynolds shouldn't have tried to get in Baby's way either.
