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.

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.

Patrick Corbin held the Rockies to one run in 6 2/3 innings and struck out seven in a win Wednesday.

Corbin rebounded from a dreadful outing against the Padres to allow one earned run or fewer for the sixth time in seven starts. D.J. LeMahieu's solo homer in the sixth was the only damage tonight. Corbin improved to 14-12 with a 4.06 ERA.

Patrick Corbin was lit up for eight runs in 4 1/3 innings by the Padres on Friday.

Corbin never gave up a homer tonight, but he allowed 11 hits, including two triples and four doubles. He surrendered more than three runs for just the second time in 16 starts. Still, the outing was bad enough tonight that his ERA is higher now (4.16) than it was before he allowed two earned runs over 20 1/3 innings in his previous three starts.

Patrick Corbin won his fifth start in a row after allowing two runs -- one earned -- in 5 1/3 innings Saturday against the Rockies at Coors.

Corbin has allowed just two earned runs during the winning streak, and his ERA is all of the way down to 3.83. It was 4.77 on this day a month ago, and it got as high as 5.43 in early June.

Patrick Corbin was money in Sunday's win over the Giants, turning in seven innings of five-hit, shutout ball.

Lovely work from Corbin on the afternoon. He struck out eight and walked just one in the outing while needing just 96 pitches to make it through his seven innings of work. This was his third shutout performance in his last four starts. In that space, he has lowered his ERA from 4.52 to 3.91. Corbin will try to keep a good thing going when he takes to the road for a date with the Rockies in his next scheduled outing.

Patrick Corbin lasted eight innings and allowed just one run Tuesday in a win over the Mets.

Amed Rosario homered in the fifth for the only run that Corbin has allowed in his last three starts. It's hard to believe that this is the same guy who had a 5.43 ERA after a dozen starts against a particularly easy early season schedule. He's come in at 2.92 in the last 12.

Patrick Corbin came one out shy of a four-hit shutout as the Diamondbacks beat the Astros 4-0 on Thursday.

As if that wasn't impressive enough, he worked around three errors today (two of which came on the same play). He had a three-hitter going when Yuli Gurriel doubled with two outs in the ninth. Torey Lovullo came out to get him then and went to Archie Bradley for the final out. Corbin, a real disappointment for 2 1/2 months, has a 3.13 ERA and a 78/18 K/BB ratio over 72 innings in his last 12 starts.

Patrick Corbin allowed five hits and a walk with eight strikeouts over 6 2/3 scoreless innings in a win against the Cubs on Saturday.

Corbin through 70 of his 102 pitches for strikes in the quality start. It was Corbin's first victory against a team with a winning record since topping the Indians way back on April 9. He'll face another tough matchup in his next scheduled turn Thursday afternoon in Houston.
Sun, Aug 13, 2017 12:10:00 AM

Patrick Corbin struck out 10 while allowing six runs (three earned) on seven hits over six innings in Sunday's loss to the Giants.

Corbin surrendered two runs in the second inning, two more in the third and a final two in the sixth. While he was unable to shut down the Giants' offense, he at least managed to notch his first double-digit strikeout game of the season via the 10 punch-outs on Sunday. He will bring a 4.76 ERA and 1.56 WHIP into a home start against the Cubs in his next scheduled outing. They blasted him for eight runs in his start prior to Sunday's game, so that could potentially be a troublesome rematch.
