Arizona Diamondbacks Option Patrick Corbin, Recall Konrad Schmidt, Starting Lineups for D-backs Vs. Dodgers

During the game between the Arizona Diamondbacks and the Los Angeles Dodgers on Monday night, catcher Miguel Montero tweaked his groin and left the game. Because of the injury and because pitcher Daniel Hudson will be back with the team soon, the team made a pair of roster moves.

They recalled catcher Konrad Schmidt from Triple-A Reno and optioned pitcher Patrick Corbin to Reno.

Montero is not expected to miss much time, but only having one catcher available is never a good idea. Manager Kirk Gibson said that, while Montero will not play at least until Friday when the Milwaukee Brewers come to town, he came in to the ballpark today not feeling too bad. Even still, playing him is not an option right now, because of teh nature of being a catcher. "He has to block balls," said Gibson.

Corbin's departure was in preparation for the return of Daniel Hudson, who said on Tuesday that he will not need another rehab start. "He had better command" of the 71 pitches he threw in his start on Monday than his previous start, said Gibson. The target is to have him return and make a start on Sunday against the Brewers.

Corbin impressed Gibson in his time with the big league club. Gibson said, "he's very good at all aspects of the game. He's got a good future ahead.

He has some things to work on down in the minors, and will do so in Reno instead of Mobile, where he was called up from. Gibson expects him to be used again and make an impact.

Here are the starting lineups for Tuesday's game against the Dodgers:

Dodgers:

  1. Tony Gwynn, Jr., CF
  2. Elian Herrera, 2B
  3. Bobby Abreu, LF
  4. Andre Ethier, RF
