"The results of Daniel Hudson's MRI are in, and they're not good:
Nick Piecoro @nickpiecoro
Gibson says Hudson has a UCL tear.
KT tells @DougandWolf620 it's a 100% tear of the UCL 12-18 months recovery time for @DHuddy41
This probably means Tommy John surgery for Hudson, which is both bad and good news. The former, in that this will write off the 2012, and in all likelihood, a significant chnk the 2013 season as well. The latter, in that the surgery is becoming ever more commonplace and a full recovery from it is entirely possible. Witness Jarrod Parker, who had the operation in October 2009, and has bounced back very well. If you're interested in the specifics, I refer you to an article (warning: contains somewhat gory content) on Tommy John surgery I wrote at the time Parker went under the knife, which covers the injury, what happens in surgery, and the rehab process."
