Update: Corbin Carroll’s shoulder discomfort takes a positive turn

Arizona Diamondbacks Corbin Carroll (7) hits a home run off on New York Mets starting pitcher Max Scherzer (21) in the first inning at Chase Field in Phoenix on July 4, 2023.

After leaving a second game early due to shoulder discomfort, All-Star Corbin Carroll has given the Diamondbacks a reason to breathe a sigh of relief with reported significant improvement.

Per Torey Lovullo on Arizona Sports’ Burns & Gambo, “all early indications are very, very positive, to the point where he’s in there taking a couple of swings right now, testing it out.”

It was two years ago when Corbin Carroll’s journey to the majors was delayed due to season-ending shoulder surgery. This injury came after a swing that resulted in a home run.

While the Diamondbacks skipper did note that the official MRI results have not come in yet, Lovullo is confident that Carroll was just “thrown off” by the pain on Thursday.

“He has a surgically repaired shoulder and when something isn’t exactly right I think he — because he feel and understand things — it throws him off.”

However, with only three games remaining before the All-Star break, it is unsure if the Diamondbacks will want to take any chances by throwing Carroll into the lineup.

Stay tuned for further updates, as the MRI results should be announced before first pitch tonight against the Pirates.
