It was one of those phone calls that, even before you pick it up, you know will bring bad news.

Arizona Diamondbacks starting pitcher Daniel Hudson woke up to that call from the team doctor in early June 2013.

Hudson was nearing the end of a yearlong rehabilitation process for a damaged elbow ligament, which required a fix commonly known as Tommy John surgery.
