In an expected move, the Atlanta Braves confirmed Thursday that pitcher Tim Hudson has been ruled out for the rest of the season with a broken ankle. The 38-year-old suffered a rather gruesome injury Wednesday night while attempting to cover first base in the bottom of the eighth inning against the New York Mets.

On the play, the back of Hudson's ankle was stepped on by the Mets' Eric Young Jr. in a race for first base. He was placed on a stretcher and carted off the field.

According to the Associated Press, team doctors have decided to wait until the swelling in Hudson's ankle has gone down before sending him in for surgery. On Thursday, the Braves placed Hudson on the 15-day disabled list, recalling left-hander Alex Wood from Triple-A Gwinnett. Wood started for Atlanta in Thursday's afternoon game against the Mets in place of Paul Maholm, who is dealing with a bruised left wrist.

The Braves are currently at the top  of the NL East with a 57-44 record.
