Hudson to make one more rehab start
PHOENIX -- Braves starter Tim Hudson will make one more start for Triple-A Gwinnett on Tuesday and is on track to pitch against the Pirates on April 29 or April 30, manager Fredi Gonzalez said.

Hudson, who is recovering from spine fusion surgery, allowed one unearned run on two hits and three walks in five innings in a Minor League rehab start for Gwinnett on Wednesday. He struck out four batters in the 76-pitch outing. He also threw 14 pitches in the bullpen to finish the day with 90 pitches.

The veteran hopes to throw at least 100 pitches on Tuesday.

"Stuff-wise, I feel like I'm pretty close to where I want to be," Hudson said. "I'd like to build my arm strength a little bit. I was sitting around 89-90 mph. I threw some 87 and 88s in there that I don't like seeing too much. I think after pitching more, working out and long-tossing, it will be better."

Hudson loaded the bases in the first inning against Norfolk but escaped the inning unscored upon.

"I feel good, and hopefully it goes real well and I come out of there ready to go," Hudson said.
