Padres second baseman Orlando Hudson returned from the disabled list May 19. He had been shelved with a hamstring strain. Wednesday night -- after legging out an infield single -- Hudson departed the Padres' game against the Cardinals in favor of a pinch runner. He limped as he exited the field. As it turns out, he suffered a different leg injury this time -- a strained left groin. It's too early to know the severity or any timetable for his return. (FollowthePadres on Twitter)
Hudson, 33, is a two-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove second baseman. He's only hitting .220 with nine runs scored in 36 games this season, though he does have 10 stolen bases, which match his career-high.
