Corbin learning value of patience in Tommy John return

PHOENIX -- Patience. It's what Patrick Corbin had drummed into him since undergoing Tommy John surgery last year. He heard it from Arizona Diamondbacks teammate Daniel Hudson, who knows all too well what the road back from the procedure looks like. And he heard it from manager Chip Hale, who has dealt with three pitchers recovering from Tommy John surgery at the same time in his...

PHOENIX (AP) Ryan Braun homered, Jimmy Nelson threw seven innings in one of his best starts of the season to win a pitching duel with Arizona's Patrick Corbin, and the Milwaukee Brewers beat the Diamondbacks 2-1 on Friday night. Nelson (8-9) allowed five hits and escaped a couple of early jams to improve his record to 5-1 over his last six starts. He struck out five and walked three...

Fantasy Roundup: Buyer Beware on Returning SP

Patrick Corbin and Ervin Santana both made their debuts this weekend. Corbin made his debut on Saturday, and it certainly could have gone worse. He threw 76 pitches on the day, 56 of which were for strikes. Given that control and command often elude pitchers returning from Tommy John, it was notable that Corbin didn’t walk a batter. Still, there was obvious rust, which should...

Patrick Corbin could return to D-backs rotation on Saturday

PHOENIX -- Patrick Corbin's return from Tommy John surgery is coming soon -- maybe sooner than expected. Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Wednesday that Corbin is a possibility to start Saturday's game against the Colorado Rockies. When Allen Webster was optioned to Reno after Monday's start, it created a need for a Saturday starter. Hale said Josh Collmenter or a minor-league...

Arizona Diamondbacks: Who replaces Patrick Corbin?

Patrick Corbin The Arizona Diamondbacks received some very troubling news earlier in the week: Opening Day starter Patrick Corbin was diagnosed with damage in his ulnar collateral ligament of his throwing elbow. His first meeting with team doctors recommended Tommy John surgery, which would effectively end the left-hander’s 2014 season before it even starts. Even if Corbin takes...

Success hasn't changed D-backs' Corbin

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- The jump from fifth-starter candidate to nominal ace has not seemed to have had any affect on Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin this spring. Maybe a few more people recognized him back home this winter, but Corbin appears sublimely unaffected by his breakout 2013 season. Maybe it is because the 24-year-old expects more in the future. "I'm still the same...
