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. Aug 14 - 11:54 AM

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.
Aug 12 - 10:06 PM

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.
Aug 7 - 12:32 AM

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.
Jul 31 - 8:36 PM

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.
Jul 27 - 12:25 AM

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.
Jul 16 - 2:01 AM

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.
