(PHOENIX) — An unfortunate turn of events for Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Daniel Hudson.
Hudson, who had Tommy John surgery last July, re-tore his ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow during his first rehab start on Tuesday, for Double-A Mobile.
The Diamondbacks stated they are looking into all medical options to repair the elbow, with a second Tommy John surgery the likely option.
The 26-year-old Hudson was expected to return to the team during the second half of the season.
The Chicago White Sox traded Hudson to the Diamondbacks in 2010. After a strong finish with the D-Backs in 2010, Hudson followed it up with a very good 2011, making 33 starts and compiling a record of 16-12 to go along with a 3.49 ERA and a 1.20 WHIP.
