Hudson hopes to return with Braves next year

ATLANTA (AP) - Tim Hudson says he plans to return next season from right ankle surgery and hopes he's still pitching for the Atlanta Braves.

Hudson, 38, sat in the clubhouse Friday waiting to have his cast and staples removed and replaced with a walking boot. He underwent season-ending surgery two weeks ago and begins treatment soon.

Hudson says the Braves, his team since 2005, want to see that he's fully recovered before discussing another contract. The right-hander agrees, adding "it's just kind of the common sense thing to do."

After going 8-7 with a 3.97 ERA this season, Hudson has a 205-111 career record in 14 seasons. His .649 winning percentage ranks 10th-best among pitchers with at least 300 career decisions.

Hudson's 4-year, $36 million contract expires at the end of the season.
