Diamondbacks activate LHP Corbin, C Hernandez, option INF-OF Dorn, RHP Stites to Reno


PHOENIX — The Arizona Diamondbacks have reinstated left-hander and catcher from the 60-day disabled list.

The moves came before Corbin took the mound against Colorado on Saturday night in his first start since undergoing Tommy John surgery in March 2014.

To make room, the Diamondbacks optioned utility man and right-handed reliever to Triple-A Reno.

Corbin was 14-6 with a 3.41 ERA for Arizona in 2013, his first full season in the majors. He was 1-1 with a 4.76 ERA in four rehab starts with Class A Visalia and Double-A Mobile.

The 22-year-old Hernandez, a Rule 5 draft selection last year, had been sidelined all season with a broken bone in his left hand.

The Diamondbacks also transferred catcher (torn ACL) to the 60-day DL.
