Diamondbacks’ Patrick Corbin Likely To Miss 2014 Season

Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin was forced to leave his spring training start on Saturday with left forearm stiffness and the Diamondbacks have announced that an MRI has revealed damage to the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow.

The damage to the UCL will almost certainly require Tommy John surgery and Corbin is likely to miss the entire 2014 season.

The Diamondbacks’ scheduled opening day starter, the 24-year-old Corbin went 14-8 with a 3.41 ERA and made the National League All-Star team last season.

This injury represents a major blow to a Diamondbacks team that hopes to contend for the NL West title this season.
