Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Patrick Corbin slated to make first start Saturday in return from Tommy John surgery
The wait is finally over.
Having not seen any action since his last start Sept. 27, 2013 after undergoing season-ending Tommy John surgery in March of last year, Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Patrick Corbin is scheduled to make his first start Saturday versus Colorado. On Friday, the team announced a corresponding move making space for Corbin on the roster will be made prior to the game.
In three rehab starts at Double-A Mobile, Corbin went 1-0 posting a 2.76 ERA and holding opponents to a .220 batting average to go along with 11 strikeouts.
An NL All-Star in 2013, Corbin went 14-8 with a 3.41 ERA and 178 strikeouts that season. In seven career starts versus the Rockies, Corbin is 3-1 with a 4.09 ERA, including a spotless 2-0 record in three starts versus Colorado at Chase Field.
