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.
Jun 27 - 8:55 AM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make two more rehab starts before rejoining the Diamondbacks' rotation.

Corbin holds a 6.55 ERA and 6/5 K/BB ratio over 11 innings in his first three rehab outings. It's not a pretty bottom line, but the good news is that he's reportedly hitting the mid-90s on the radar gun. The lefty is a worth stash for fantasy owners, but they probably shouldn't be expecting a whole lot right out of the gate.
Jun 23 - 7:39 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) was touched up for four runs on four hits and two walks over just two-thirds of an inning Monday in his first rehab start with High-A Visalia.

It's an ugly bottom line, but Corbin was making his first start since September of 2013, so we'll cut him some slack. He also reportedly hit 95 mph on the radar gun, which is obviously a good sign. Corbin will need a handful more of starts before likely rejoining the Diamondbacks' rotation in early July.
Jun 8 - 9:37 PM

Patrick Corbin (elbow) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A Visalia on Monday.

The Diamondbacks slowed Corbin's rehab at extended spring training last month when his velocity dropped a bit, but it appears they think he's back on track now. The left-hander had been clocked at 92-95 mph before he hit the bump in the road. Corbin hasn't made an appearance in an official game since 2013, so it's a good bet that the D'Backs will use all 30 of his allotted rehab days, putting him on track to return just before the All-Star break.
Jun 8 - 6:49 PM

The Diamondbacks plan to push Patrick Corbin's (elbow) next start in extended spring training back after he struggled in his last outing.

Corbin gave up three runs in five innings Monday and, more importantly, was sitting in the 88-91 mph range rather than the 92-95 mph he had been throwing. General manager Dave Stewart said there's "nothing to be alarmed about" and he's probably right, but this means Corbin won't be back on the original target date of June 4. "This guy is very important to us," Stewart said, "so it's important to be sure we're not putting him in a position to once again hurt himself. If he needs a few extra days in between starts, that's what we're going to give him."
May 20 - 8:50 AM

Diamondbacks general manager Dave Stewart said in an interview Wednesday that the club is targeting June 4 as the date for Patrick Corbin's (elbow) season debut.

That's the first day he's eligible to return from the 60-day disabled list. Making his way back from Tommy John surgery, Corbin has begun appearing in extended spring training games and will start a rehab assignment soon. The left-hander is reportedly already up to 92-95 mph in extended spring, which is obviously a great sign. His command might be slow to come around, but Corbin is certainly worth stashing now in leagues where he's available.
