Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Daniel Hudson is out for the season and will likely have Tommy John surgery after completing tearing his ulnar collateral ligament.

Hudson left last night's 8-1 loss against the Atlanta Braves after giving up hits to five of the first seven batters he faced in the second inning.

“It’s been sore for the last few starts,” Hudson said to the Arizona Republic. “I’ve always had soreness in there. With my arm action, I just kind of figured it came with the territory. It’s been getting progressively worse. I just tried to pitch through it. Tonight it wasn’t happening.”
