Many assumed that a well-known prospect like Trevor Bauer or Tyler Skaggs would be promoted when the Diamondbacks finally removed soft-tossing righty Josh Collmenter from their starting rotation.
Well, Collmenter was pushed to the bullpen on Saturday. But Bauer and Skaggs will stay put.
According to CBS Sports’ Danny Knobler, the D’Backs have announced that left-hander Patrick Corbin — acquired from the Angels in the 2010 Dan Haren trade — will be recalled from Double-A Mobile on Monday to start against the Marlins.
And he’ll presumably be given an opportunity to remain in the rotation long term.
Corbin, 22, has registered a stellar 1.67 ERA, 1.11 WHIP and 25/8 K/BB ratio in 27 innings this year at Double-A. He had a 3.00 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 20/8 K/BB ratio in 21 Cactus League frames this spring.
