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

Corbin said he'll get a second opinion from noted surgeon Dr. James Andrews before deciding whether to try to rehab the injury or have surgery.

Corbin had been designated the team's opening day starter against the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday in Australia, but he left Saturday's game against Cleveland with forearm stiffness.

Arizona manager Kirk Gibson said Wade Miley will start in Sydney.
