Los Angeles Dodgers right-hander Daniel Hudson was positioned on the damage checklist Saturday with a season-ending torn left ACL.
The transfer was anticipated after Hudson’s knee buckled within the eighth inning of Friday evening’s 4-1 win over the Atlanta Braves as he reacted to a dribbler hit by Ronald Acuña Jr.
Dodgers supervisor Dave Roberts stated “it was a clear tear of the ACL.”
Hudson’s restoration is predicted to take six to 9 months, taking away the staff’s prime setup reliever. Hudson, 35, has 5 saves and a 2.22 ERA.
“Clearly, it is a large loss,” Roberts stated.
The Dodgers’ bullpen beforehand misplaced one other late-innings veteran, Blake Treinen, to a proper shoulder damage. Proper-hander Tommy Kahnle (forearm tightness) is also on the 60-day IL.
Brusdar Graterol or one other pitcher should emerge as the following bridge to nearer Craig Kimbrel.
“Clearly the fellows which are listed here are going to have a possibility,” Roberts stated. “I am not going to say who it’s, however they are going to have alternatives.”
The Dodgers activated infielder Hanser Alberto from the paternity checklist, recalled right-hander Mitch White and designated outfielder Stefen Romero for task.
White was referred to as as much as substitute left-hander Andrew Heaney, who was positioned on the 10-day injured checklist on Friday with left shoulder irritation.
