Patrick Corbin fired five scoreless innings Tuesday afternoon against the Rangers.

Corbin struck out five, walked none, and gave up only one hit -- a single to Delino DeShields in the top of the first inning. The left-hander is trying to put his stamp on the final spot in the Diamondbacks rotation, and this outing Tuesday should help. He had a rough 5.15 ERA in 155 2/3 innings last season, but there's still some upside here.
Mar 14 - 6:27 PM

Patrick Corbin was hit hard by the White Sox on Thursday, giving up three runs on six hits in 3 1/3 innings.

One of the hits left the yard. On the bright side, he punched out four batters and didn't walk anyone. Corbin started 24 games for the Diamondbacks last year but as it stands now he is likely to begin this season in the bullpen. He had a 5.15 ERA in 155 2/3 innings in 2016.
Mar 9 - 7:28 PM

Patrick Corbin yielded two runs on three hits over three innings in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Padres.

In addition to the three hits he allowed, Corbin also walked two. Not the finest spring afternoon for the 27-year-old southpaw. He is currently on the outside looking in for a rotation spot. Saturday's result won't help his cause.
Mar 4 - 6:44 PM

Patrick Corbin led the Diamondbacks to a 6-1 victory over the Reds on Monday by firing two scoreless, hitless innings with three punchouts.

He is competing for the last slot in the Arizona starting rotation. Zack Greinke, Taijuan Walker and Robbie Ray seemingly have slots locked down. Archie Bradley and Shelby Miller have the inside track on the final two places. If Corbin stays strong and one of the others falters he will get the nod. The left-hander began last season in the rotation but was demoted to the bullpen in August. He finished with a 5.15 ERA in 155 2/3 innings.
Feb 27 - 8:18 PM

Diamondbacks and LHP Patrick Corbin avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.95 million contract.

The left-hander was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter. He put up a disappointing 5.15 ERA for the Diamondbacks last season.
Jan 13 - 4:51 PM

Patrick Corbin has been moved to the Diamondbacks' bullpen.

Expectations were high for Corbin entering the season after he looked so good returning from Tommy John surgery last year, but he fell flat on his face with a 5.58 ERA and 1.65 WHIP over 24 starts. Zack Godley is replacing him in the rotation.

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Saturday that the club is considering removing Patrick Corbin from the rotation.

"We’re talking about it," Hale said, "Mike and I and Tony (La Russa) and (Dave Stewart). We’re going to do the best thing, obviously, for the ball club and for Patrick, but we haven’t made any decisions yet." Corbin was rocked again on Friday in his last start and now holds a 5.58 ERA and 1.65 WHIP on the season. Pitching coach Mike Butcher thinks Corbin's disappointing campaign could be a "hangover" from his 2014 Tommy John surgery, as this is his first full year back from the operation. Regardless of the reason for the southpaw's struggles, it sounds like Corbin could be headed to the bullpen or Triple-A soon. Zack Godley would be a likely option to replace him in the rotation.

Patrick Corbin was absolutely obliterated in Friday's loss to the Red Sox, surrendering eight runs (four earned) on nine hits in just 1 2/3 innings of work.

Corbin struck out two on the night and didn't walk a batter. While his defense didn't do him any favors, he was way too hittable to have any sort of success in this ballgame. Hanley Ramirez did the heavy lifting against him, smacking a pair of three-run homers. Plagued by command issues and inconsistency, Corbin now sports a horrifying 5.58 ERA and 1.65 WHIP on the season. He'll hope for better on Wedneseday when he takes on the Mets.

Patrick Corbin surrendered four runs in five innings and absorbed a loss to the Brewers on Saturday.

He put a lot of runners on the bases by walking five batters in addition to the eight hits he allowed. He struck out five. The loss drops him to 4-11 with a 5.37 ERA after 23 starts. He hasn't been very good this year after a promising return from Tommy John surgery last year.

Patrick Corbin struggled in a losing effort against the Dodgers on Sunday afternoon, allowing four runs (three earned) on eight hits over 5 1/3 innings.

Corbin punched out six on the day while walking three. He kept the Dodgers off the board through the first three innings until they broke through for three runs in the fifth and tacked on another before Corbin was chased the following frame. He'll look to improve upon his troublesome 5.30 ERA and 1.57 WHIP when he does battle against the Brewers on Saturday.

Patrick Corbin allowed four runs over five innings in a no-decision against the Brewers on Tuesday.

Corbin struck out six, a positive, but he also gave up six hits and walked three in his five innings of work. The no-decision means he still hasn't picked up a win this month, and he's just 4-9 through 21 starts overall. Corbin will work on improving his record, as well as his ugly 5.31 ERA and 1.55 WHIP, when he takes on the Dodgers on Sunday.

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.

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.
