Yesterday, I wrote about Arizona Diamondbacks’ catcher Tuffy Gosewisch being done for the year due to a torn ACL in his left knee. Today brings some good news on the injury front. Couple that with a D’backs 7-6, come-from-behind victory and we have the makings for a fairly good Wednesday. Courtesy of Jake Rill at, here are updates on four players who are on the mend.

Pitcher Patrick Corbin threw an extended Spring Training game on Monday. He threw 3 2/3 innings, striking out eight. The outing came after a five day layoff in which the D’backs felt he extended himself too much. After he completes a bullpen session on Thursday, Corbin could be ready to begin a rehab assignment early next week. No timetable has been set for the lefty as he continues to make his way back from Tommy John surgery.

Third baseman Jake Lamb is set to join Triple A Reno today for his rehab assignment. His last game played for the Snakes was April 18th as suffered an injury to his left foot. Expect to see Lamb back in Arizona during the middle of June.

On Tuesday, starting pitcher Bronson Arroyo, another TJ victim, threw his second bullpen session in five days at Chase Field. Arroyo will have a better idea of his progress today, specifically, if there will be any lingering soreness.

Reliever David Hernandez was supposed to pitch for Reno on Monday but the game was rained out. The plan is for him to throw on back-to-back days before a determination is made for him to re-join the D’backs. Hernandez is recovering from, you guessed it, TJ surgery.
