After pitching five good innings for Triple-A Gwinnett on Wednesday, Tim Hudson is expected to make one more rehab start before returning to the Braves rotation April 29th or 30th against Pittsburgh. It's been presumed that Randall Delgado would be sent down to Triple-A when Hudson returns, and manager Fredi Gonzalez indicated that was still the plan barring anything unexpected. Delgado (2-0, 4.35 ERA in two starts) has pitched better than Jair Jurrjens (0-1, 8.10 ERA in three starts), but the Braves are not considering a demotion for Jurrjens, who was an All-Star in 2011 before knee problems slowed and eventually sidelined him in the second half.
Hudson nearing return; whither Delgado?
