Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Daniel Hudson suffered a re-tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow this week, which could put his season in jeopardy, the team announced.

The team is looking at options on how to handle the injury, including a possible season-ending surgery.

The 26-year-old right-hander had Tommy John surgery last July and suffered the re-tear on Tuesday during an extended spring training start at Double-A Mobile after allowing one run on two hits over two innings.

Hudson was 3-2 with a 7.35 ERA and a 1.63 WHIP in nine starts last season before being shut down with the injury. The Diamondbacks are 34-26 this season and lead the NL West by 2 1/2 games over the San Francisco Giants.
