Tim Hudson has screw removed from his ankle, will start running soon


Tim Hudson is a free agent for the first time in awhile after spending the last 10 seasons with the Atlanta Braves.

The veteran right hander is getting some interest from the Boston Red Sox and I wouldn’t be surprised if a couple more American League teams begin to do the same.

According to David O’Brien on Twitter, Hudson, 38 years old, had a screw removed from his right ankle yesterday and will more than likely be cleared to run in a couple weeks.

Hudson could be getting some interest from the New York Yankees, Baltimore Orioles, Chicago Cubs, Texas Rangers, St. Louis Cardinals and possibly the Pittsburgh Pirates.

He’ll more than likely end up with the Atlanta Braves, but right now the Boston Red Sox have the best chance out of any other team who may be interested.

The team is looking to win back to back World Series titles next season and that could get the attention of a veteran who deserves a World Series ring before he retires.
