Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin (elbow) will throw his second simulated game Tuesday, April 28, and then three innings and 45 pitches May 4. Corbin will continue to build to 90 pitches during a minor league rehab assignment starting in mid-May. The team is hoping to have him active on or just before June 5, according to general manager Dave Stewart. Corbin is recovering from Tommy John surgery last March. He went 14-8 with a 3.41 ERA and 1.17 WHIP in a breakout 2013 season.
Fantasy Tip: Corbin is expected to immediately enter the D-backs rotation when he's ready in early June. For that reason alone, he should already be stashed in NL-only and deep mixed leagues in a DL slot. Consider doing the same if you have the room in shallow mixed leagues. Corbin might be slow out of the gates and struggle with velocity and location, as many Tommy John returnees do initially, but he could be a useful fantasy commodity in the second half of 2015 in most leagues.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin (elbow) has been playing catch from 105 feet as he recovers from Tommy John surgery last spring. Corbin has been at the team's spring facilities in Arizona playing catch since the end of last year before taking two months off. "When I first started throwing, it wasn't feeling the best, there was just different things in there," said Corbin. "But after I took those two months off, when I started up again, everything felt great. Now when I throw, it feels good." The D-backs are taking a cautious approach to their pitchers recovering from Tommy John surgery, making it more of a 15-month recovery process. Corbin will continue a long-toss program this spring, moving back 15 feet each week until he reaches 150 feet.
