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.

Patrick Corbin lasted just two innings and gave up four runs and eight hits Thursday versus the Reds.

This comes 16 days after he pitched just 1 1/3 innings and gave up three runs against the Nationals. However, he's been pretty excellent otherwise since making his return from Tommy John surgery. The Diamondbacks will likely tread carefully with him down the stretch; they have to walk a fine line between not taking chances with him and trying to build him up for next year. If he starts getting pulled earlier, what little mixed-league value he might have will vanish.
Aug 20 - 11:18 PM

Patrick Corbin pitched a great game in Saturday's 8-4 win over the Braves, fanning eight over 6 2/3 innings of shutout baseball.

Corbin allowed a double to Ryan Lavarnway in the fourth inning, the only extra-base hit he surrendered during his 6 2/3 scoreless innings on the mound. The eight strikeouts were two off of his season high. He's done a nice job since entering the Diamondback rotation and owns a 3.43 ERA, 1.19 WHIP and 43/11 K/BB ratio over 42 innings (eight starts). A road outing against the Reds is up next on his schedule.
Aug 15 - 10:29 PM

Patrick Corbin turned in a quality start during Sunday's no-decision against the Reds, allowing three runs on seven hits over six-plus innings.

Corbin struck out five and walked one on the afternoon. Two runs scored against him in the fourth. The other run on his line came home on an RBI double by Ivan De Jesus Jr. in the seventh inning. For the year, Corbin holds a 4.08 ERA, 1.25 WHIP and 35/8 K/BB ratio across 35 1/3 innings. He'll take to the road against the Braves in his next start.
Aug 9 - 7:52 PM

Patrick Corbin threw 54 pitches, but recorded only four outs and allowed three runs in a loss to the Nationals on Tuesday.

The first inning was a disaster for the lefty. Yunel Escobar led off with a home run, then the Nationals got three more consecutive hits to plate another run. Jayson Werth brought in run number three with a ground out. He left with one out in the second inning after walking Bryce Harper to put runners on first and second. Corbin has otherwise been solid in six starts, carrying a 3.99 ERA, a 1.23 WHIP, and a 30/7 K/BB ratio over 29 1/3 innings. He'll aim to rebound versus the Reds at home.
Aug 4 - 11:00 PM

Patrick Corbin delivered an impressive outing in Wednesday's victory over the Mariners, fanning six over six innings of one-run ball.

Corbin scattered just three hits and a pair of walks on the afternoon. The only damage against him came on an RBI single by Brad Miller in the fourth inning. Since returning from Tommy John surgery, Corbin has compiled a 3.21 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 29/5 K/BB ratio over 28 innings. He needs to be owned and started in all mixed leagues at this point. He'll take on the Nationals his next time out in Washington on Tuesday.
Jul 29 - 7:51 PM

Patrick Corbin pitched seven innings of one-run ball against the Brewers in a loss Friday.

Corbin struck out 10 tonight, but he again received very little help from the Diamondbacks offense in losing his third straight start. The team has totaled four runs in his three defeats. Still, he's pitching well enough to be worth owning in mixed leagues.
Jul 25 - 1:02 AM

Patrick Corbin pitched well in a losing effort against the Giants on Sunday, allowing two runs on four hits over his five innings of work.

Corbin punched out five on the afternoon while walking only one. He was lifted after just 86 pitches as the D'Backs continue to play things cautiously in his return from Tommy John surgery. Through four starts, he owns a 4.80 ERA, 1.20 WHIP and 13/2 K/BB ratio over 15 frames. He'll take on the Brewers his next time out at home on Friday.
Jul 19 - 7:16 PM

Patrick Corbin struggled with the home run ball in Saturday's loss to the Mets, yielding three homers and four total runs over five-plus innings.

Lucas Duda and Ruben Tejada took him deep for solo homers. The third homer allowed? Well, that came off the bat of opposing starter Matt Harvey in the fifth inning, as you would figure. This was Corbin's second start since returning from Tommy John surgery and he threw 67 pitches, 43 for strikes. He last pitched in the majors in 2013, when he posted a 3.41 ERA and a 178/54 K/BB ratio over 208 1/3 innings. There's talent here, but it's clear that Corbin still has some work to do to work off the rust and owners who took a flier on him in deeper leagues should be patient.
Jul 11 - 6:38 PM

In his return from Tommy John surgery, Patrick Corbin pitched five innings of two-run ball and recorded a win over the Rockies on Saturday.

Corbin allowed eight hits, three for extra bases, but he was able to spread them around enough to leave with a lead. It helped a lot that he walked no one. His fastball was consistently in the low-90s, and 56 of his 76 pitches were strikes. Corbin isn't a recommended mixed-league pitcher just yet, but he definitely has the ability. He's well worth the flier in deeper leagues.
Jul 5 - 1:41 AM

Diamondbacks activated LHP Patrick Corbin (elbow) from the 60-day disabled list.

Corbin didn't pitch past the sixth inning in any of his rehab starts and we wouldn't expect him to Saturday against the Rockies. The 25-year-old was an All-Star in 2013 but struggled down the stretch with a 5.19 ERA over his last 13 starts. Fantasy owners should use a wait and see approach with the young left-hander.
Jul 4 - 7:21 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make his season debut on Saturday against the Rockies.

Corbin had been slated for one more rehab start, but the Diamondbacks felt that he looked ready on his rehab assignment so they will bring him back a little early. Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, the left-hander put up a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 rehab innings. Ideally, fantasy owners should give him at least a start or two before sticking him back into their lineup.
Jul 3 - 5:10 PM

Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Patrick Corbin (elbow) could make his season debut Saturday against the Rockies.

Corbin was expected to make a final rehab start Thursday, but the club is holding him back with the idea that he could be needed with the big club sooner. Corbin owns a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 minor league innings as he makes his way back from Tommy John surgery. Corbin is worth owning, if not starting, in all fantasy leagues.
Jul 1 - 6:17 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make his season debut for the Diamondbacks on either July 7 or 8 in Texas.

Corbin will make one final rehab start on Thursday to complete his rehab from Tommy John surgery. The left-hander has put up a 4.76 ERA and 11/7 K/BB ratio over 17 innings across four rehab starts to this point but has reportedly been hitting the mid-90s on the radar gun. Despite the nice velocity, fantasy owners should probably take a wait-and-see approach with Corbin rather than trusting him right away.
Jun 29 - 6:45 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) punched out five hitters over six innings of work in his latest minor league rehab start with Double-A Mobile on Friday.

Corbin gave up two runs on four hits and a pair of walks in the outing. He built his stamina up to 87 pitches in this outing and will require just one more rehab start before rejoining the Diamondbacks rotation.
