Hudson out again; Harang to start at Class A

Second baseman Orlando Hudson was feeling better Sunday but was

out of the San Diego Padres lineup again with a sore knee.

Hudson fouled a pitch off his left knee in Friday night’s series

opener against Seattle. Manager Bud Black said the plan was for

Hudson to go through pregame work on Sunday and be evaluated before

the Padres open their series on Monday in San Francisco.

Black also said that injured right-hander Aaron Harang will

begin a rehab stint on Monday night at Class A Lake Elsinore.

Harang went on the disabled list June 13 with a right foot

contusion. He’s expected to need at least two rehab starts before

the Padres will consider bringing him off the DL.
