The Arizona Diamondbacks announced Friday that right-handed pitcher Daniel Hudson re-tore an elbow ligament and are exploring all medical options.
Hudson, 26, initially tore the ligament last July and had Tommy John surgery to repair it. However, he was forced to leave a minor league rehab start with elbow stiffness earlier this week.
He will likely require a second Tommy John surgery.
Hudson was 3-2 with a 7.35 ERA and 1.63 WHIP in nine starts last year.
