Diamondbacks pitcher Bronson Arroyo still dealing with pain in elbow
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:31 pm ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Bronson Arroyo is still feeling a noticeable pain in his right elbow on the road to recovery from Tommy John surgery, according to MLB.com.

Arroyo underwent the procedure last July and is hopeful to return during the second half of the season at some point. Arizona has a $4.5 million buyout on Arroyo's contract at the end of the season, which is motivating his speedy recovery from the surgery.

"That's why I'd like to get back and maybe make 10 starts the second half of the season to show what I can do," Arroyo said. "That way they have some basis for making a decision."


Diamondbacks pitcher Patrick Corbin on track for return this summer
by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(6:28 pm ET) Diamondbacks pitcher Patrick Corbin continues to progress his way back from Tommy John surgery last season. The righty missed the entire 2014 season with the injury and is scheduled to make his second simulated game Tuesday before throwing three innings in an extended spring training appearances May 4, according to MLB.com.

If all goes well, Corbin is expected to build his stamina to 90 pitches for a minor league start in mid-May. Manager Chip Hale is targeting June 5 for Corbin to return, according to the report.

"I was just looking at the schedule," Hale said. "[Corbin's] going to throw that simulated on Tuesday. It looks like the first week of June he'll be back pitching on our club."

Corbin can't wait to get back with the team.

"I'm excited, yeah I am," said Corbin. "I'm feeling great. Just can't wait to get back. It has been awhile. It's been 14 months on our calendar since the surgery on Monday. So it will be about 15 months when I come back."
