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

Date:

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.
Apr 4 - 10:57 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) threw a bullpen session Tuesday for the first time since Tommy John surgery last March.

Corbin, who is now exactly one year removed from the surgery, said it was "awesome" and "exciting." The 25-year-old southpaw still has to move from bullpens to facing hitters and then game action, so he has a while to go in his rehab process, but he could join the D-Backs' rotation around June if all goes well. Corbin had a 3.41 ERA over 32 starts in 2013 and made the National League All-Star team.
Mar 25 - 9:10 AM

Diamondbacks activated LHP Patrick Corbin from the 60-day disabled list.

Corbin missed the 2014 campaign following Tommy John surgery and isn't expected back until June of next year. The left-hander was an All-Star in 2013, posting a 3.41 ERA over 32 starts.

Patrick Corbin (elbow) played catch Tuesday for the first time since Tommy John surgery in March.

"It was an exciting day of five minutes," Corbin said. "It honestly felt like nothing." That qualifies as good news. The D'Backs plan to bring the left-hander along slowly, as manager Kirk Gibson said last month that he's not expecting Corbin back until June.
Wed, Sep 10, 2014 08:46:00 AM

Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Tuesday that "it will be more like June" before Patrick Corbin (elbow) rejoins the rotation.

Corbin had Tommy John surgery in March, so projecting a June return is certainly conservative but also probably wise. "I think with Patrick it will be more like June for him," Gibson said. "He'd probably punch me if heard me saying that but you're really going to take your time and make sure he's ready to go. You're not going to expect him to come back and throw 220 innings. You kind of manage his rehab through innings and put him in a position to finish strong. … We're going to make sure we err on the side of very cautious." In addition to Corbin, the D'Backs also have David Hernandez, Matt Reynolds, Daniel Hudson and Bronson Arroyo working their way back from Tommy John surgery, though Hudson and Reynolds could be back late this season.
Wed, Aug 27, 2014 09:09:00 AM

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

This is merely a procedural move, as Corbin will miss the entire 2014 season after undergoing Tommy John surgery. The Diamondbacks hope that he'll be ready to return early in the 2015 season.
Sat, Apr 5, 2014 08:26:00 AM

Diamondbacks placed LHP Patrick Corbin on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to March 19, with a torn left elbow ligament.

Corbin underwent Tommy John surgery last week. The D'Backs will hope to get him back early on in the 2015 season.
