Baseball notebook: Elbow injury could sideline Corbin for the season

This is a summary. To read the whole story subscribe to BostonGlobe.com

Arizona Diamondbacks lefthander Patrick Corbin has a partially torn ligament in his left elbow that may require season-ending surgery.

Corbin said Sunday said he has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament and is getting a second opinion with noted surgeon Dr. James Andrews before deciding whether to try to rehab the injury or have surgery.

‘‘This all new to me,’’ he said. ‘‘I’ve never been hurt before, so I’m just trying to get through it.’’

Corbin had been designated the team’s Opening Day starter against the Los Angeles Dodgers in Australia, but left Saturday’s game against Cleveland in the seventh inning with forearm stiffness.

He was 14-8 with a 3.41 ERA and made the All-Star team as a rookie last season.

‘‘It’s a big blow to the individual that he’s going through this,’’ manager Kirk Gibson said. ‘‘As a team, we’ve all prepared for him to be a part of it. We didn’t see anything coming.’’

Gibson said lefthander Wade Miley will start Saturday’s opener.
