Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Patrick Corbin (elbow) could make his season debut Saturday against the Rockies.
Corbin was expected to make a final rehab start Thursday, but the club is holding him back with the idea that he could be needed with the big club sooner. Corbin owns a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 minor league innings as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery. Corbin is worth owning, if not starting, in all fantasy leagues.

Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make his season debut for the Diamondbacks on either July 7 or 8 in Texas.

Corbin will make one final rehab start on Thursday to complete his rehab from Tommy John surgery. The left-hander has put up a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 innings across four rehab starts to this point but has reportedly been hitting the mid-90s on the radar gun. Despite the nice velocity, fantasy owners should probably take a wait-and-see approach with Corbin rather than trusting him right away.
Jun 29 - 6:45 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) punched out five hitters over six innings of work in his latest minor league rehab start with Double-A Mobile on Friday.

Corbin gave up two runs on four hits and a pair of walks in the outing. He built his stamina up to 87 pitches in this outing and will require just one more rehab start before rejoining the Diamondbacks rotation.
Jun 27 - 8:55 AM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make two more rehab starts before rejoining the Diamondbacks' rotation.

Corbin holds a 6.55 ERA and 6/5 K/BB ratio over 11 innings in his first three rehab outings. It's not a pretty bottom line, but the good news is that he's reportedly hitting the mid-90s on the radar gun. The lefty is a worth stash for fantasy owners, but they probably shouldn't be expecting a whole lot right out of the gate.
Jun 23 - 7:39 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) was touched up for four runs on four hits and two walks over just two-thirds of an inning Monday in his first rehab start with High-A Visalia.

It's an ugly bottom line, but Corbin was making his first start since September of 2013, so we'll cut him some slack. He also reportedly hit 95 mph on the radar gun, which is obviously a good sign. Corbin will need a handful more of starts before likely rejoining the Diamondbacks' rotation in early July.
Jun 8 - 9:37 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Visalia on Monday.

The Diamondbacks slowed Corbin's rehab at extended spring training last month when his velocity dropped a bit, but it appears they think he's back on track now. The left-hander had been clocked at 92-95 mph before he hit the bump in the road. Corbin hasn't made an appearance in an official game since 2013, so it's a good bet that the D'Backs will use all 30 of his allotted rehab days, putting him on track to return just before the All-Star break.
Jun 8 - 6:49 PM

The Diamondbacks plan to push Patrick Corbin's (elbow) next start in extended spring training back after he struggled in his last outing.

Corbin gave up three runs in five innings Monday and, more importantly, was sitting in the 88-91 mph range rather than the 92-95 mph he had been throwing. General manager Dave Stewart said there's "nothing to be alarmed about" and he's probably right, but this means Corbin won't be back on the original target date of June 4. "This guy is very important to us," Stewart said, "so it's important to be sure we're not putting him in a position to once again hurt himself. If he needs a few extra days in between starts, that's what we're going to give him."
May 20 - 8:50 AM

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said in an interview Wednesday that the club is targeting June 4 as the date for Patrick Corbin's (elbow) season debut.

That's the first day he's eligible to return from the 60-day disabled list. Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, Corbin has begun appearing in extended spring training games and will start a rehab assignment soon. The left-hander is reportedly already up to 92-95 mph in extended spring, which is obviously a great sign. His command might be slow to come around, but Corbin is certainly worth stashing now in leagues where he's available.
May 13 - 1:53 PM

Diamondbacks transferred LHP Patrick Corbin from the 15-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears space on the 40-man roster for the addition of J.C. Ramirez. Corbin is close to beginning a rehab assignment as he works his way back from Tommy John surgery.
May 10 - 12:41 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make a start in extended spring training next Monday.

If all goes well, he'll begin a minor league rehab assignment with High-A Visalia. The southpaw missed the entire 2014 season after Tommy John surgery, but he appears on track to join the D-Backs' rotation at some point in June.
May 7 - 5:31 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) had a scheduled extended spring training start on Monday rained out.

"He'll pitch [Tuesday], so just one day behind," Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said. Corbin is on track to begin a rehab assignment later this month and rejoin the Arizona rotation at some point in June.
May 4 - 10:55 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) will throw another live batting practice session on Saturday before then being cleared for an extended spring training game.

Corbin faced hitters Tuesday for the first time since Tommy John surgery. He remains on track for a June return.
Apr 21 - 6:35 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) will throw live batting practice on Tuesday for the first time since undergoing Tommy John surgery.

It's another step in the right direction for Corbin who is still eying a return to the Diamondbacks at some point in June. David Hernandez, who is also recovering from Tommy John surgery, is also scheduled to throw live batting practice on Tuesday.
Apr 19 - 5:08 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) threw 30 sliders off a mound on Friday.

It's the first time he's thrown the pitch since Tommy John surgery and it's a big step since that's the pitch that puts the most stress on his arm. Reliever David Hernandez is also recovering from Tommy John surgery and took the same step Friday. They'll both face hitters for the first time in a simulated game on April 21 and then appear in an extended spring training game on April 25. Hernandez is hoping to return by mid-May, while Corbin won't be back until sometime in June.
Apr 12 - 9:01 AM

Diamondbacks placed LHP Patrick Corbin on the 15-day disabled list with a left elbow injury.

Corbin underwent Tommy John surgery last March and is just now starting to throw bullpen sessions. If he progresses well in his rehab, he could see major league action in June. The 25-year-old still has a ways to go, though. In 2013, Corbin made the All Star team.
