NEW YORK (AP) - Tim Hudson needs surgery on his broken right ankle, an injury that leaves the NL East-leading Atlanta Braves without one of their top pitchers.

Hudson got hurt while covering first base Wednesday night against the New York Mets when Eric Young Jr. stepped on the back of his lower leg. The 38-year-old right-hander was carted off the field in obvious pain.

Hudson had X-rays at Citi Field and the Braves say he will undergo surgery in Atlanta once the swelling goes down. It's unclear how long he will be out or whether he'll be able to pitch again this season.
