Patrick Corbin struggled in Wednesday's loss to the Blue Jays, yielding six runs (five earned) on nine hits over 5 2/3 innings.
Corbin has now allowed at least five runs in each of his last five starts. Josh Donaldson set the tone by whacking a two-run homer off the southpaw in the first inning and things just snowballed from there. Corbin will bring a 5.38 ERA and 1.53 WHIP into his next scheduled start, a road date with the Brewers. Jul 20 - 9:25 PM

Patrick Corbin yielded seven runs -- six earned -- in four innings Friday in a loss to the Dodgers.

Corbin showed really good stuff after returning from Tommy John surgery last year, but things just haven't been the same in 2016. His ERA is up to 5.25, and even though his groundball rate is strong, he's served up 19 home runs in 109 2/3 innings. The only starters in baseball who are giving up a similar percentage of homers per flyball allowed are Jon Niese, who just lost his rotation spot, and Nathan Eovaldi, who is hanging by a thread.

Diamondbacks GM Dave Stewart said the team has no plans to trade Patrick Corbin.

Teams have called about Corbin but Stewart has been adamant that he's unavailable. The Diamondbacks probably couldn't get much for Corbin now anyway. The left-hander is in the midst of a career-worst season with just four wins and a 4.94 ERA over 105 2/3 innings. Corbin pitched to a steady 3.41 ERA with 14 wins in 2013 but hasn't looked the same since Tommy John surgery.
Jul 14 - 11:39 PM

Patrick Corbin surrendered five runs -- three earned -- in 4 2/3 innings Friday in a loss to the Giants.

Corbin had a decent run against a tough schedule in May and June that seemed to bode well for him going forward, but he's given up 16 runs -- 11 earned -- over 14 1/3 innings in his last three starts. He could be a trade candidate for the Diamondbacks this month, though that'd be a case of selling low. It hasn't helped that Corbin's velocity is down some this year after his strong return from Tommy John surgery last summer.
Jul 9 - 2:04 AM

Patrick Corbin pitched 5 1/3 innings on Saturday and was charged with five runs, but only two were earned in the no-decision.

He struck out five batters, walked two and gave up five base hits, two of which were longballs. Now sporting an unpleasant 4.90 ERA and 1.45 WHIP, Corbin will toe the rubber in San Francisco on Friday in a repeat of today's matchup.
Jul 3 - 1:48 AM

Patrick Corbin was knocked around in a no-decision against the Rockies at Coors Field on Sunday, giving up six runs on seven hits in only 4 1/3 innings.

Corbin struggled mightily with his command all afternoon, issuing five free passes while striking out just one batter. The southpaw allowed a solo homer to Charlie Blackmon in the third inning, then the big blow of the game came on a grand slam off the bat of Carlos Gonzalez in the sixth. He'll carry a disappointing 4.99 ERA and 1.44 WHIP into Saturday's start against the Giants.
Jun 26 - 7:48 PM

Patrick Corbin earned his fourth victory of the season on Tuesday, limiting the Blue Jays to two runs on eight hits across 6 1/3 innings.

The left-hander walked three and struck out three on the evening. The only blemish on his night was a two-run double off the bat of Kevin Pillar in the fourth inning. It's the third strong start for Corbin in his last four outings, lowering his ERA to 4.63 for the season. He'll look to extend his winning streak to two when he squares off against Rockies at Coors Field on Sunday.
Jun 21 - 11:10 PM

Patrick Corbin allowed three runs on seven hits across 6 1/3 innings in Wednesday's loss to the Dodgers.

All three runs came home when Scott Van Slyke jumped on a sixth-inning offering from Corbin and crushed it out of the park. Outside of that one swing, though, the 26-year-old southpaw pitched respectably. He struck out seven, walked three and left the game in the seventh having thrown 103 pitches (62 strikes). He will carry a 4.76 ERA, 1.35 WHIP and 65/26 K/BB ratio (85 innings) into a road date with the Blue Jays next time he toes the rubber.
Jun 15 - 6:34 PM

Patrick Corbin was charged with four runs in 6 1/3 innings Friday in a no-decision against the Marlins.

Corbin was cruising with a 5-1 lead until the seventh, when he gave up a leadoff double to Giancarlo Stanton and then his only two walks of the night (to two of the NL's weakest hitters in Miguel Rojas and Jeff Mathis). He was taken out and Tyler Clippard immediately gave up a grand slam to Justin Bour, adding three earned runs to Corbin's total. Arizona still had the lead at that point, but it didn't last long, as the Marlins scored three more times in the frame.
Jun 11 - 1:08 AM

Patrick Corbin limited the Cubs to two earned runs over seven innings Sunday in a win.

A much-needed bounceback outing from the 26-year-old left-hander, who struggled mightily in his previous two starts. He held a dangerous Cubs offense to five hits over seven strong innings on Sunday, issuing no walks and striking out five. Corbin will get the Marlins at home next as he looks to put together two good outings in a row. He hasn't done much of that this season.
Jun 5 - 5:29 PM

Patrick Corbin was shelled for seven earned runs over 3 1/3 innings in a loss Tuesday versus the Astros.

Corbin was pulled in the fourth inning after allowing nine hits and two free passes. The big blow was a three-run bomb by George Springer. Corbin did manage three strikeouts. The awful outing spiked Corbin’s season ERA from 4.21 all the way up to 4.96. The 26-year-old lefty will look to regain his form versus the mighty Cubs on Sunday.
May 31 - 7:46 PM

Patrick Corbin fell to 2-4 after giving up five runs -- four earned -- in 5 2/3 innings Thursday against the Pirates.

Corbin's big mistake was the pitch on which Gerrit Cole hit a three-run homer. Had Cole bunted in that situation, as a lot of pitchers would have, Corbin's day could have turned out a whole lot better. As is, it was another less-than-stellar outing from the disappointing left-hander. He's not worth playing in mixed leagues with the Astros and Cubs next up on the schedule.
May 26 - 4:39 PM

Patrick Corbin surrendered two runs in 6 1/3 innings of work Friday in an 11-7 win over the Cardinals.

It was his first win since April 17. While Corbin walked four batters, he limited the Cardinals to just four hits and matched his season-high with seven strikeouts. The 26-year-old hit a rough patch early on, but he has shown signs of turning the corner in his last four outings. He’ll try to keep it going next week against the Pirates on the road.
May 21 - 12:50 AM

Patrick Corbin posted a serviceable start in earning a no-decision against the Giants on Saturday, surrendering three runs on eight hits over 6 1/3 innings.

Corbin struck out four and walked one on the evening. Two of the three runs on his line scored on a two-run homer by Hunter Pence in the fourth inning. He wouldn't allow another run during his time on the mound, but facing a surprisingly game Jake Peavy, Corbin couldn't quite come away with the win. He avoided the loss, at least, after the Diamondbacks tied up proceedings at 3-3 in the eighth inning. The 26-year-old southpaw will carry a 4.14 ERA and 1.30 WHIP into his next scheduled start, a road showdown with the Cardinals.
May 14 - 11:52 PM

Patrick Corbin came away with a no-decision in Sunday's 5-3, 11-inning win over the Braves, tossing seven innings of shutout ball in the process.

Strong work from Corbin, but the Diamondbacks blew the win off his ledger when they allowed the Braves to overcome a 3-0 deficit in the eighth inning. For his part, Corbin scattered five hits while striking out five and walking one. He will carry a 4.12 ERA and 1.28 WHIP into his next scheduled start, a home date with the Giants.
