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.

Updating previous reports, Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin (elbow) has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow, and he may need season-ending surgery depending on what Dr. James Andrews finds in a second opinion. SP Wade Miley will now start the team's season opener in Australia against the Los Angeles Dodgers.
Fantasy Tip: You should now avoid Corbin like the plague in all drafts. This will now open up a rotation spot for Archie Bradley, Randall Delgado or Josh Collmenter. Bradley clearly has the most upside of the trio if you are speculating with a late-round flier pick.
