Corbin threw just 59 of his 96 pitches for strikes while suffering just his third loss in nine decisions. Fantasy owners thought a home outing against the struggling Mets would be a walk in the park but it turned out to be a significant challenge. He also uncorked a wild pitch while issuing an intentional walk in the outing. He'll try and regroup for his next scheduled start Friday in Pittsburgh. Jun 17 - 5:24 AM

Patrick Corbin allowed five runs in 5 1/3 innings with five strikeouts in a no decision against the Pirates on Monday.

Corbin allowed a run in the first that should never have happened -- it scored on an error by Paul Goldschmidt -- but he cruised through the next three innings. Things fell part in the fifth, as the left-hander struggled to throw strikes and gave up a pair of run-scoring hits. Corbin has been excellent this year for the most part, but he's had a few iffy starts like this. You'll take em if you have him on your redraft roster, and he'll help you more often than not in DFS. Corbin will take a 3.10 ERA and 110/25 strikeout-to-walk ratio into his next start against the Mets on Saturday.
Jun 12 - 12:57 AM

Patrick Corbin allowed just one earned run, four hits and two walks with seven strikeouts over 6 1/3 innings in a win Tuesday in San Francisco.

Corbin threw 65 of his 99 pitches for strikes, improving to 6-2 while lowering his ERA to 2.87. He has been money on the road, going 2-0 with a 2.78 ERA in six road starts while striking out 43 batters across 35 2/3 innings. He'll be back home on Monday against Pittsburgh to kick off a two-start week for his fantasy owners.
Jun 6 - 2:14 AM

Patrick Corbin was roughed up for eight hits and six runs over six innings Wednesday in the Diamondbacks’ loss to Cincinnati.

He registered 10 strikeouts and also allowed one free pass. Corbin was handed an early 4-0 lead but it didn’t last long as Adam Duvall brought the Reds back with a game-tying grand slam in the fourth inning. The left-hander encountered more trouble in the sixth, allowing a two-run blast to Scott Schebler. Corbin got off to a brilliant start this year but has slowed down considerably over the past month, winning just one of his last seven starts. He’ll look to bounce back when he takes the mound Tuesday at San Francisco. Corbin threw a one-hit shutout the last time he faced the Giants on April 17.
May 30 - 7:06 PM

Patrick Corbin pitched seven innings of one-run ball to defeat the A's on Friday.

It's his first win since April 22, though that's hardly his fault. Corbin's velocity remained down for the fifth straight start, as he averaged 90 mph tonight and topped out at 92 mph, but it didn't stop him from quieting Oakland's bats. There's still very good reason for concern about his velocity issues, even if he's not supposed to be hurt. He'll get the Reds next time out.
May 26 - 1:01 AM

Patrick Corbin allowed two runs on four hits over 5 1/3 innings while taking a no-decision in Saturday's loss to the Mets.

Corbin struck out six and walked four on the evening. Both of the runs on his line scored in the second inning, when Michael Conforto burned him for a home run with a runner on base. Other than that, relatively smooth sailing. Only a late implosion by the Diamondbacks' bullpen prevented him from picking up a win. Corbin will bring an on-the-money 2.60 ERA and 0.91 WHIP into a road start against the A's when he next trots to the mound.
May 20 - 12:13 AM

Patrick Corbin yielded four earned runs over six innings Monday in a loss to the Brewers.

Corbin has had issues with velocity and command in recent outings. His command was fine in this one -- he struck out eight batters and issued just one walk -- but his fastball sat 89-91 mph and the Brewers tagged him for six hits. The 28-year-old left-hander still has an outstanding 2.53 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and 75/14 K/BB ratio in 57 total innings this season, but he hasn't earned a win since April 22. It might be smart to think about selling high on him in fantasy.
May 15 - 12:53 AM

Patrick Corbin allowed one earned run, three hits and four walks with seven strikeouts over five innings in a no-decision Wednesday on the road against the Dodgers.

Corbin had some rare control issues in this one, managing to throw just 50 of his 96 pitches for strikes. He also uncorked a wild pitch, too. Still, he allowed just one earned run and his ERA remains at a brilliant 2.12. He'll look to tighten up on his location when he faces Junior Guerra and the visiting Brewers on Monday to kick off a two-start week.
May 10 - 3:00 AM

Patrick Corbin gave up just three hits and a run over six stellar innings in a no-decision Thursday against the Dodgers.

He fanned five and walked two while throwing 57 of his 92 pitches for strikes. The only run Corbin allowed came on Austin Barnes’ solo home run in the second inning. The left-hander didn’t have his usual velocity on Thursday but still registered his fourth straight quality start. He also drove in a run with an RBI single while raising his season average to .308. Corbin will take a nine-start unbeaten streak into his next outing Wednesday against the same Dodgers team he just faced.
May 3 - 7:35 PM

Patrick Corbin allowed three runs over 6 2/3 innings, striking out seven, in a no-decision Saturday against the Nationals.

Corbin yielded a pair of homers among his seven hits allowed, also walking one in the outing. He left facing the prospect of taking his first loss of the year, but the D'backs rallied late and kept Corbin's record at a perfect 4-0 through his six starts. And what a six starts they have been, as Corbin now owns a 2.25 ERA, 0.75 WHIP and 55/7 K/BB ratio over 40 innings of work. Corbin will try to keep it rolling Thursday against the division-rival Dodgers.
Apr 28 - 7:36 PM

Patrick Corbin struck out 11 Padres over six innings, allowing two runs in 4-2 win Sunday.

Corbin has been the biggest revelation of the 2018 season, and the latest chapter was written Sunday. The southpaw baffled the Padres over his six innings, allowing just two hits and a walk, and a two-run homer by the red hot Christian Villanueva in the sixth inning was the only mark against him. He's now struck out 8-12-9-8-11 in his five starts, leading the National League -- you know, the league with Clayton Kershaw, Max Scherzer and Noah Syndergaard -- with 48 strikeouts. He leads the league in pretty much every other pitching category as well. Corbin will carry a 1.89 ERA and 0.66 WHIP into Saturday's matchup with the Nationals.
Apr 22 - 9:08 PM

Patrick Corbin allowed just one hit with one walk and eight strikeouts in a complete-game shutout against the visiting Giants on Tuesday.

Corbin threw exactly 100 pitches, throwing 68 of them for strikes, and he improved to 3-0 while lowering his ERA to 1.65. Two of his past three outings have resulted in quality starts, and he has logged at least eight strikeouts in each of his first four appearances. After allowing two homers in his first start on March 29 he hasn't yielded a long ball in 21 2/3 innings in the month of April. Next up is a visit from the Padres on Sunday afternoon.
Apr 18 - 1:41 AM

Patrick Corbin allowed three earned runs, five hits and two walks with nine strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings in a no-decision Tuesday in San Francisco.

Corbin has been on point so far this season, striking out at least eight batters in each of his three starts. Tuesday marked the first time he didn't etch his name into the win column, however. The good news is that he didn't serve up a home run for the second consecutive outing after getting tagged for two in his initial appearance against Colorado back on March 29. His next start will be a rematch with the Giants next Tuesday in the desert as he kicks off a two-start week.
Apr 11 - 1:50 AM

Patrick Corbin dominated Wednesday in the Diamondbacks’ win over the Dodgers, yielding just one hit over 7 1/3 shutout innings.

Corbin yielded one walk while setting a career-high with 12 strikeouts. He struck out five of the first six hitters he faced and had a perfect game going until the fifth when Matt Kemp broke it up with a two-out double to right field. Corbin also had a big day offensively, going 2-for-2 with a double and a single off Alex Wood. The left-hander will take a 1.38 ERA into his next start Tuesday at San Francisco.
Apr 4 - 7:23 PM

Patrick Corbin allowed two runs on seven hits over 5 2/3 innings in Thursday's win over the Rockies.

Corbin coughed up a solo home run to D.J. LeMahieu in the top of the first inning, but quickly found his groove after that mistake, with only a solo home run by Nolan Arenado in the sixth accounting for further damage on his evening's line. The southpaw wrapped his 5 2/3 innings of work having struck out eight and walked one. Last season, Corbin struggled with his control -- his WHIP finished at 1.42 -- but still managed to turn in a 4.03 ERA in 189 2/3 innings. It would be nice to see a bit more consistency this year, with the addition of a humidor in Arizona potentially an aiding factor in that avenue.
