Internet sports betting has Tim Hudson starting for the Atlanta Braves on Monday.
The Braves are trying to stay in the playoff race and Hudson could give them an offshore sports betting boost.
Internet sports betting has the Braves pitcher returning in place of Kenshin Kawakami, who gave up four runs in Wednesday’s online sports betting loss to the Padres. The Braves are not making plans past Monday for Hudson but they would sure like him in the rotation as offshore sports betting tells us. “[Hudson] told me he could have pitched a month ago in relief,” Atlanta manager Bobby Cox said. “But he’s a starter, and we wanted to do the right thing, coming off the operation and he could be a free agent.”
The Braves are looking at a $12 million option for Hudson next season as offshore sports betting indicates, but they are more concerned right now about the rest of this season. Atlanta has even considered a six-man rotation as Internet sports betting shows to get everyone some rest including Kawakami. “We just want to give KK a little time off,” Cox said. “He averaged about 23 starts over in Japan. He’s already at 24 here. And he’s done great. For the first year over here, I think he’s been on the excellent side.” Cox may be going overboard a bit. Internet sports betting has Kawakami at 6-10 with a 4.08 ERA this online betting season.
Internet sports betting had Hudson originally scheduled to pitch Friday for Class AAA Gwinnett in Charlotte. Those plans have now changed. “I feel ready,” Hudson said. “This is something I’ve been looking forward to for a long time, and put a lot of long hours of hard work in just anticipating this start. I’m excited about it. I think everybody around here is sick and tired of seeing me in the training room all day getting treatment. It’s time to get out there and earn my paycheck for a change.”
Atlanta plays Florida on Monday in a big Internet sports betting game since the Braves are battling with the Marlins for the Wild Card with both teams trailing Colorado and San Francisco. Internet sports betting stats had Hudson going 1-1 with a 3.86 ERA in six rehab starts. He walked four and struck out 14 in 23-1/3 innings as offshore sports betting tells us. “I feel like things are zeroed in where they need to be,” Hudson said.
