Hudson, who had Tommy John surgery last July, was making his first rehab start outside of three extended spring training outings. He allowed one run on two hits over two innings for Mobile before leaving after just 48 pitches.

When he initially had his surgery, the estimated timetable for Hudson's return was around the All-Star Break, but he had been progressing ahead of schedule and there was some feeling that he might be able to return after just a couple of starts for Mobile.
