 SYDNEY (AP) - Top prospect Archie Bradley will get the start for the Arizona Diamondbacks against Team Australia in an exhibition game Friday with a potential spot in the starting rotation following a serious injury to Patrick Corbin.
Left-hander Corbin was scheduled to pitch the opening game of the MLB season against Clayton Kershaw and the Los Angeles Dodgers on Saturday at Sydney Cricket Ground. But Corbin has a partially torn ligament in his left elbow that may require season-ending surgery.
Diamondbacks manager Kirk Gibson said Thursday he had no update on Corbin's condition, but that the 21-year-old Bradley would pitch ''5 (innings) and 75 (pitches) or maybe up to 90'' in the Diamondbacks final outing before the weekend series.
In Corbin's absence, left-hander Wade Miley will get the start against Kershaw.
