The Dodgers suffered a handful of injuries in the 2022 season, some were minor, and others were severe, which caused them to miss an extended period of time.
One Dodger that missed most of the 2022 season was reliever Daniel Hudson.
Hudson suffered an unfortunate torn ACL that ended his season in late June against the Atlanta Braves.
Hudson tried rushing off the mound after a swing bunt by Ronald Acuna and instantly injured his left knee once he stepped off the rubber.
The righty reliever appeared on MLB Network radio and discussed his rehab process and if he can pitch in 2023.
“Feeling pretty good man, just trying to get through P.T. doing that 3-4 days since I got hurt. It’s coming along slowly but surely, but it’s feeling really good and I’m hoping to get back out there for spring training. I’m hoping to start getting off the mound within the next 6-8 weeks just to test it out and see how its feeling, I don’t want to push it too hard but I always had spring training as the end date for this whole P.T. rehab process hopefully I can get there but if not we’ll take it as slow as we need to and hopefully be ready for opening day.”
When the 35-year-old was on for the Dodgers, he was one of the better relievers for the Boys in Blue. Before his injury, Hudson posted a 2.22 ERA, with a 2-3 record, 30 strikeouts, 0.90 WHIP in 24.1 innings, and 25 games pitched.
The 2008 draft pick was a former Dodger in 2018, and after an average season in L.A., he was elected for free agency and signed with the Blue Jays after being released by the Angels in spring training.
Hudson will look to duplicate his 2022 season with Los Angeles whenever he retakes the mound.
We hope to see him make an appearance in 2023.
