Tim Hudson threw live batting practice Thursday in Braves camp for the first time this spring.
“It felt really good,” Hudson said after the workout. “I had a little extra adrenaline with hitters in there. I think that little extra adrenaline gets me feeling like game speed. It’s coming out really good.” The veteran right-hander is scheduled to throw live batting practice again on Sunday and should be an active member of the Atlanta rotation by the first week of May.
