Continued: Atlanta Braves pitcher Tim Hudson out for the season with broken right ankle

Hudson will likely have surgery in the next few days, and recovery time is expected to be about three to four months. After that, he should be able to resume his career with no lingering effects, the Braves said.

Gonzalez said he told Hudson that he wants him around as much as possible to support his teammates — on crutches, in a walking boot, whatever.

"I said, 'Hell, I'll even let you manage a couple of games if you want to do that. You know, sit there next to me and make the decisions,'" Gonzalez said. "He goes, 'Oh no, I don't want to do that.' So, he'll be fine. I don't think that last night's game is going to be the last time we're going to see him on a mound."

Hudson was working on a four-hit shutout when he was injured. He struck out nine in 7 2-3 innings — his most since whiffing 10 Mets on June 17, 2011. He finishes the season 8-7 with a 3.97 ERA after winning his final four starts.

A trio of Braves relievers have already had season-ending surgery this year: Jonny Venters, Eric O'Flaherty and Cristhian Martinez.

After the game Wednesday, Gonzalez said there was "a line out the door" of Braves and Mets players and coaches offering well wishes to Hudson, one of the most popular and respected players in the majors.

Young was very upset about the gruesome injury, which drew a loud groan from the crowd when a replay was shown on the large video board. Gonzalez said he still didn't want to see the replay.

"It's just one of those freak accidents that happens," he said. "It's nobody's fault."
