Hudson disputes trade rumor
Tim Hudson was caught off guard on Friday afternoon when some of his current Braves teammates informed him MLB Network’s Peter Gammons had just tweeted that Hudson had informed some former teammates that he felt he would be traded before the July 31 Trade Deadline.
Without being asked about the tweet, Hudson made a point to say he had never even discussed this possibility with any of his former teammates.
As a player with 10 years of Major League experience, including five consecutive with his current club, Hudson has the right to veto any potential trade. With this in mind, the veteran hurler, who will turn 38 next weekend, has no desire to play for any team other than the Braves until his contract runs out at the end of this year.
