Arizona Diamondbacks left-hander Patrick Corbin underwent season-ending, Tommy John surgery
"He did have the Tommy John surgery today and it was done by Dr. Andrews in Pensacola," Trammell said Tuesday. "Other than that, I don't know any other details.
"It's a long road back. But it's a road I'm for certain that he'll do everything in his power to get back from. It's a setback for him and for us, but again you have to deal with these things. It's unfortunate."
Corbin, who made his first All-Star appearance with a 14-11 record and 3.41 ERA in 2013, first experienced tightness in his left forearm after a Cactus League outing against the Cleveland Indians March 15.
An MRI later revealed that the 24-year-old had damage to the ulnar collateral ligament in his left elbow and would likely require season-ending surgery.
While the loss is a big one for the D-backs' rotation, Trammell noted that every team sustains its fair share of bumps and bruises during the 162-game marathon season.
"He's a great kid," said Trammell. "But you now think about Daniel Hudson and going through two and the guys from Atlanta. That's two guys for them going through two of them. Why do they happen? I don't have that answer. I wish I knew. It's unfortunate, but every club in baseball has to deal with these things.
"We're dealing with it now. We'll see what happens. Again, it's an opportunity. Every time these things happen it's an opportunity for somebody to step up. Hopefully that happens here."
