PHOENIX (AP) — The Arizona Diamondbacks have recalled catcher Konrad Schmidt from Triple-A Reno following the injury to starter Miguel Montero. The Diamondbacks also optioned left-hander Patrick Corbin to Reno.
Montero sustained what the team called a mild groin strain while chasing a foul ball to the screen in Monday night’s 6-1 loss to the Los Angeles Dodgers. While Montero was not been placed on the disabled list, the injury had left 40-year-old Henry Blanco as the only healthy catcher on the Arizona roster.
Corbin was 2-3 with a 5.27 ERA in five starts since being recalled from Double-A Mobile on April 30. Daniel Hudson, who has been sidelined with a shoulder injury, is expected to take Corbin’s next scheduled start Saturday against Milwaukee. That would require another Arizona roster move.
