The D-backs remain hopeful that Corbin (elbow) will be ready to return to their rotation by June, the Arizona Republic reports.

Even though Corbin had Tommy John surgery in late March, the expectations from the team have consistently pointed to a return closer to 14 months than 12. The typical range is 12-to-18 months, and the D-backs lack pitching depth on the big league roster, so ensuring that Corbin is brought along carefully is easy to rationalize.

Corbin (elbow) may not be ready to pitch for the Diamondbacks until June of next season, Scott Bordow of the Arizona Republic reports.

Manager Kirk Gibson said Wednesday that the Diamondbacks are proceeding conservatively with their treatment of Corbin, who underwent season-ending Tommy John surgery on Mar. 25. With Corbin's long-term interests in mind, the Diamondbacks have already ruled him out from returning to the Opening Day rotation, and will look to manage his innings in 2015 as he returns from a major procedure. As the pitching staff currently stands, Wade Miley looks poised to enter next season as the Diamondbacks' ace.

Patrick Corbin said Sunday that he will decide after a second opinion this week whether to rehab or undergo Tommy John surgery to repair a partial tear of his ulnar collateral ligament.

It would be shocking if he chooses rehab, as it's something that simply doesn't work. Corbin revealed that he's been nursing some elbow tightness all spring but had chalked it up to fatigue. The issue came to a head in his last outing, when the pain became too much during Corbin's final three pitches.
