Giants right-hander Tim Hudson will miss his next start because of a strained left hip.
The problem doesn't appear to be a major concern, but the Giants felt it would be best to give Hudson additional time to rest. They opted to scratch the three-time All-Star from his scheduled start Friday against the Miami Marlins.
Hudson is 4-2 with a 2.09 ERA in eight starts this season.
Yusmeiro Petit, who started two games in place of injured Matt Cain earlier this year, will replace Hudson against Miami.
