NEW YORK -- Tim Hudson is out for the season with a broken right ankle, leaving the Atlanta Braves without the leader of their pitching staff as they make a push for the pennant.

The team says Hudson will have season-ending surgery in Atlanta once the swelling subsides. The right-hander was injured Wednesday night when Eric Young Jr. of the New York Mets inadvertently stepped on the back of Hudson's right leg while the pitcher was covering first base.

Atlanta placed Hudson on the 15-day disabled list Thursday and recalled left-hander Alex Wood from Triple-A Gwinnett to start against the Mets. Wood was set to pitch in place of Paul Maholm, who has a bruised left wrist.
