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.

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.
Mar 30 - 1:55 AM

Patrick Corbin let in three runs -- two earned -- in five innings to take a spring loss to the Indians on Friday.

He came back out for the sixth frame and promptly served up a solo bomb to Yonder Alonso. Corbin allowed six hits and three walks while fanning three in the contest. He hasn't been very sharp in Cactus League play. He was pretty good last year but his fantasy owners are hoping the new humidor in Arizona will help him improve on the 14-13 record and 4.03 ERA in 32 starts and one relief appearance.
Mar 24 - 12:26 AM

Patrick Corbin allowed three runs over four innings against the White Sox on Sunday.

Corbin gave up seven baserunners in this one via two walks and five hits. He also served up a solo shot to superstar prospect Eloy Jimenez. The southpaw will be a free agent at the end of the 2018 season, so he's pitching for a big payday in 2019. If he can keep the ball in the park while missing as many bats as he did last year (178 strikeouts in 189 2/3 innings), he has a chance to be a relevant fantasy hurler this season.
Mar 11 - 5:43 PM

Patrick Corbin served up two hits and a run over two innings of work Wednesday in the Diamondbacks’ Cactus League loss to the Rockies.

He fanned two and didn’t walk anyone. Corbin set down the Rockies in order in the first before Tom Murphy took him deep with one out in the second inning. He yielded a single to Raimel Tapia two batters later but nabbed Tapia on a pickoff play to end the frame. Nineteen of the left-hander’s 29 pitches on Wednesday went for strikes. Corbin was an All-Star in 2013 but hasn’t been the same since his Tommy John surgery.

Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports the Brewers are among the teams that have talked with the Diamondbacks about Patrick Corbin.

Heyman says the Diamondbacks "have talked to many teams" about Corbin, who is set to make $7.5 million this season after going 14-13 with a 4.03 ERA last season. It's his last year of arbitration before becoming a free agent next winter. The Brewers are believed to be exploring a number of different options on the starting pitching front.
Jan 27 - 7:27 PM

Diamondbacks and LHP Patrick Corbin avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $7.5 million contract.

Bob Nightengale had the terms. Corbin nearly doubles his salary -- he made $3.95 million last year -- after going 14-13 with a 4.03 ERA and a 178/61 K/BB ratio in 189 2/3 innings last season. He'll be eligible for free agency next winter, which is one reason he's been tossed around as a trade candidate recently.
Jan 11 - 10:38 PM

ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the Yankees "have been digging into background/scouting" on Patrick Corbin.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post first reported last week that the Yankees were showing interest in Corbin, as the Bronx Bombers appear to still want to add rotation help even after re-signing CC Sabathia. Corbin posted a 4.03 ERA and 178/61 K/BB ratio over 189 2/3 innings for the Diamondbacks in 2017 and will be a free agent after 2018.

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that the Yankees have spoken to the Diamondbacks about starter Patrick Corbin and infielder Brandon Drury.

Sherman notes that the Yankees' priority right now is to deepen their starting rotation, thus the Corbin interest, but they also view Drury as a potential hole-filler at either second or third base. Corbin, 28, registered a 4.03 ERA (119 ERA+) and 178 strikeouts in 189 2/3 innings this past season with Arizona. He can become a free agent next winter. Drury, a 25-year-old with four more years of club control, batted .267/.317/.447 with 13 home runs and 63 RBI over 135 games in 2017.

Patrick Corbin pitched 2 2/3 scoreless innings in relief Friday against the Royals.

The Diamondbacks said Corbin would be available out of the pen this weekend, and they got eight outs from him tonight. He still seems like a good bet to start in the NLDS if the Diamondbacks get that far. He could pitch in relief in the wild card game, though.
Fri, Sep 29, 2017 11:38:00 PM

Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Patrick Corbin and Zack Godley will work in relief this weekend against the Royals.

They both could have made starts on normal rest, but it's not necessary with the Diamondbacks having already clinched home field for the National League Wild Card Game. Corbin and Godley will each throw a couple of tune-up innings at Kauffman Stadium in preparation for Arizona's possible advancement to the National League Division Series.

Patrick Corbin logged a quality start in a no-decision against the Marlins on Sunday, allowing two runs on five hits in his 6 2/3 innings of work.

The left-hander walked four and struck out five on the day. The Marlins scratched out single runs against him in the third and fourth innings, but Corbin was able to limit the damage and keep his team in the ballgame for an eventual comeback. He'll look to finish the regular season strong when he does battle against the Royals in Kansas City on Saturday.

Patrick Corbin surrendered four earned runs over five innings Monday in a loss to the Padres.

Corbin retired the first two batters he faced in the bottom of the first inning, but Wil Myers hit a two-out ground-rule double, Yangervis Solarte drew a walk, and then Hunter Renfroe unloaded for a three-run homer to center field. San Diego would plate another run on an Austin Hedges solo shot in the bottom of the second. Corbin is now 14-13 on the season with a 4.14 ERA. He'll get the Marlins at home next.
