Patrick Corbin gave up seven runs in 5 2/3 innings Wednesday as the Diamondbacks fell to the Cardinals.
And all of those runs were earned. Corbin got into trouble right out of the gate, yielding a run on a hit and a walk in the top of the first inning. He settled in for a little while after that, but the Cardinals pounced for another run in the fifth before going off for five runs in the sixth. Corbin, sitting on a 4.88 season ERA, will try to get back on the right track in his next start at Marlins Park. That place is a little more friendly than Chase Field. Apr 28 - 1:16 AM

Patrick Corbin picked up his first victory of the 2016 season on Sunday, racking up seven strikeouts over 6 2/3 innings against the Padres.

Corbin surrendered three runs (one earned) on six hits and three walks. He has pitched very well through his first three starts, registering a 2.75 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 14/4 K/BB ratio over 19 2/3 innings. He'll look to carry over this fine performance when he does battle against the Pirates at home on Friday.
Apr 17 - 7:23 PM

Patrick Corbin tossed six innings of one-run ball Tuesday in a no-decision against the Dodgers.

Arizona didn't take the lead for good until the eighth inning, so the "win" went to Tyler Clippard. Corbin scattered six hits and one walk in a fine performance at Dodger Stadium. The left-hander will try to keep it all working next week in San Diego.

Patrick Corbin struggled to keep the ball in the park during Wednesday's 4-3 loss to the Rockies, yielding four runs on eight hits over seven innings.

The Rockies thrashed the Diamondbacks with a whopping 10 homers over the course of their season-opening series. Corbin was responsible for coughing up three of them. Trevor Story rocked him for a two-run homer in the first inning, which was followed by solo homers off the bats of D.J. LeMahieu and Ryan Raburn in the third and seventh innings, respectively. The 26-year-old Corbin held a 3.60 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 78/17 K/BB ratio across 85 innings after returning from Tommy John surgery in the middle of the 2015 campaign. He is next scheduled to take to the road to do battle with the Dodgers.

Patrick Corbin struck out seven while allowing one unearned run over 5 1/3 innings on Monday versus the Brewers.

He gave up five hits and walked just one. Corbin's strong return from Tommy John surgery last season has carried over to this spring, as he boasts a 0.63 ERA and 17/3 K/BB ratio over 14 1/3 innings. He makes for an excellent mid-round selection in fantasy leagues.
Mar 21 - 11:56 PM

Patrick Corbin hurled three scoreless innings against the Royals on Friday.

Corbin held the Royals to two hits (both of them singles) and no walks. He struck out one batter and also induced a double-play grounder. The 26-year-old showed an uptick in velocity after returning from Tommy John surgery last season while posting a 3.60 ERA and 78/17 K/BB ratio over 85 innings. He figures to be a popular sleeper pick in the middle rounds of mixed league drafts this spring.
Mar 11 - 6:21 PM

Patrick Corbin gave up two unearned runs in two innings Sunday against the Cubs.

Corbin had a clean first inning, retiring Dexter Fowler, Ben Zobrist, and Jason Heyward in order, but Diamondbacks third baseman Jake Lamb made a bad throw to open the top of the second and the Cubs wound up scoring two runs on doubles from Tommy La Stella and Juan Perez. Corbin will hope for some better defensive support in his second Cactus League outing. He returned from Tommy John surgery last July 4 and posted a cool 3.60 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, and 78/17 K/BB ratio over 85 innings.
Mar 6 - 7:00 PM

Diamondbacks and LHP Patrick Corbin avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $2.525 million contract.

Jan 15 - 4:41 PM

Patrick Corbin gave up five runs to the Rockies on 10 hits over 5 1/3 innings Thursday.

The 26-year-old southpaw went 12-1 with a 2.31 ERA through his first 20 starts in 2013 but missed all of last year after undergoing Tommy John surgery in spring training. He really came on over the past few months before his last two duds, entering tonight 3-2 with a 2.27 ERA over his last six. Regardless, Corbin has momentum heading into 2016. He finishes 6-5 with a 3.60 ERA and 1.27 WHIP.

Corbin struck out three and walked three on the afternoon. All four runs on his line scored in the fifth inning. The 26-year-old right-hander wasn't particularly on-point against the Dodgers, but he still holds a 3.28 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 73/16 K/BB ratio over 75 1/3 innings. Respectable numbers, particularly given that he's coming off of Tommy John surgery. Corbin's final start of the season will come at home against the Rockies as he looks to finish off the 2015 campaign on a strong note.

Patrick Corbin fired seven shutout innings Saturday in the Diamondbacks' 6-0 victory over the Giants.

Corbin yielded just four singles and one double. He did not walk a batter and struck out five. The 26-year-old right-hander has been mostly terrific in his first year back from Tommy John elbow surgery, boasting a 2.99 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, and 70/13 K/BB ratio in 75 1/3 frames. He'll try to keep it all working next week at Dodger Stadium.

Patrick Corbin pitched well in a losing effort against the Dodgers on Sunday, surrendering just two runs on eight hits over his six frames.

Corbin punched out four and didn't issue a walk in the contest. While good, he was simply out-dueled by Zack Greinke who was outstanding on the other side of the diamond. Corbin has been inconsistent, which is to be expected, in his return from Tommy John surgery, but has certainly flashed his potential. He'll look to further improve upon his 3.29 ERA and 1.23 WHIP when he takes on the Giants in San Francisco on Saturday.

Patrick Corbin blanked the Giants for six innings, striking out five, in a victory Monday.

Command is supposed to be the last thing to return following Tommy John surgery, but Corbin certainly hasn't had trouble throwing strikes since coming off the DL; he has a 62/13 K/BB ratio in 62 1/3 innings. He'll be worth using in mixed leagues all month long.

Patrick Corbin held the Rockies to two runs over 6 1/3 innings en route to a 6-4 victory Tuesday.

Corbin served up a pair of solo homers among the seven hits he allowed, but he didn't walk anyone and struck out four. It's certainly an outing that you have to be pleased with at Coors Field. The left-hander has pitched well since returning from Tommy John surgery, posting a 3.67 ERA and 56/13 K/BB ratio over 56 1/3 innings. He'll try to keep it going next week in two home starts versus the Giants and Dodgers.

Patrick Corbin pitched well in a Wednesday no-decision against the Cardinals, allowing one run on three hits over six innings.

Corbin struck out seven and walked two on the evening, with a fifth-inning solo homer by Mark Reynolds representing the only run to score during the 26-year-old's time on the mound. Since returning from Tommy John surgery on July 5, he's pitched to a 3.78 ERA and 1.26 WHIP over 50 innings, covering 10 starts. So long as he's giving the Diamondbacks innings, he'll continue to hold some value in mixed leagues. A road trip to Coors for a date with the Rockies crops up next on Corbin's schedule.
