Patrick Corbin allowed two earned runs, eight hits and two walks while striking out nine batters over seven innings in a win Tuesday against the Padres.
Corbin has 17 strikeouts over his past two outings, both against San Diego. It shouldn't be terribly surprising considering the Padres offense entered the day third in the National League in strikeouts. He had just seven total strikeouts over his first three starts in 16 total innings. Corbin isn't a high strikeout pitcher but he is good at limiting the damage. He has also allowed just three homers over 29 innings. Apr 26 - 12:59 AM

Patrick Corbin turned in a quality start in Thursday's loss to the Padres, surrendering three runs on five hits over six innings.

Corbin struck out eight without walking a batter. He had issued at least two free passes in each of his previous three starts. Wil Myers burned him for a solo home run in the first inning on Thursday, with the other two runs on his line coming home via a two-run double off the bat of Erick Aybar in the fifth inning. Through four starts, Corbin has now pitched to a 3.27 ERA, 1.45 WHIP and 15/7 K/BB ratio across 22 innings. He will look for his fourth quality start in five tries when he tries to avenge this loss in a home start against these same Padres next time he toes the rubber.
Apr 20 - 11:35 PM

Patrick Corbin allowed five runs - three earned - and nine hits over six innings with three walks and three strikeouts in a loss Saturday at L.A. Dodgers.

Technically it was a quality start for Corbin, but he threw just 58 of his 95 pitches for strikes. The southpaw isn't off to a very good start, losing two of his first three decisions while posting a 1.69 WHIP. The good news is he has allowed just one homer through 16 innings of work, but he has issued seven walks while striking out just seven batters. That ratio needs to get better in a hurry.
Apr 16 - 2:20 AM

Patrick Corbin turned in a nice outing in Sunday's win over the Indians, tossing six innings of shutout ball.

Corbin out-pitched ace Corey Kluber in this one, at least in terms of the runs that plated against him (or lack thereof). He struck out three, walked two and scattered four hits over his strong six innings of work. Despite this outing, fantasy parties would be advised to look elsewhere for pitching help. Corbin posted a 5.15 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 36 games (24 starts) during the 2016 season. He will face off with the Dodgers in a road start next time he toes the rubber.
Apr 9 - 7:48 PM

Patrick Corbin was lifted after allowing three runs -- two earned -- in four innings Tuesday against the Giants.

That's a disappointing showing from a guy who impressed with some added velocity and fine control this spring. Of course, it's just one bad day, so we won't make too much of it. But he went from maintaining a 17/3 K/BB ratio this spring to finishing at 1/2 tonight.
Apr 5 - 1:32 AM

Patrick Corbin allowed two runs over five innings Sunday in his Cactus League start against the Indians.

Corbin was cruising until the bottom of the fourth, when Edwin Encarnacion hit an RBI double and Yandy Diaz followed with an RBI single. The left-hander struck out three and did not issue a walk. He projects to open the 2017 season as the Diamondbacks' fifth starter.
Mar 19 - 5:52 PM

Patrick Corbin fired five scoreless innings Tuesday afternoon against the Rangers.

Corbin struck out five, walked none, and gave up only one hit -- a single to Delino DeShields in the top of the first inning. The left-hander is trying to put his stamp on the final spot in the Diamondbacks rotation, and this outing Tuesday should help. He had a rough 5.15 ERA in 155 2/3 innings last season, but there's still some upside here.
Mar 14 - 6:27 PM

Patrick Corbin was hit hard by the White Sox on Thursday, giving up three runs on six hits in 3 1/3 innings.

One of the hits left the yard. On the bright side, he punched out four batters and didn't walk anyone. Corbin started 24 games for the Diamondbacks last year but as it stands now he is likely to begin this season in the bullpen. He had a 5.15 ERA in 155 2/3 innings in 2016.
Mar 9 - 7:28 PM

Patrick Corbin yielded two runs on three hits over three innings in Saturday's Cactus League loss to the Padres.

In addition to the three hits he allowed, Corbin also walked two. Not the finest spring afternoon for the 27-year-old southpaw. He is currently on the outside looking in for a rotation spot. Saturday's result won't help his cause.
Mar 4 - 6:44 PM

Patrick Corbin led the Diamondbacks to a 6-1 victory over the Reds on Monday by firing two scoreless, hitless innings with three punchouts.

He is competing for the last slot in the Arizona starting rotation. Zack Greinke, Taijuan Walker and Robbie Ray seemingly have slots locked down. Archie Bradley and Shelby Miller have the inside track on the final two places. If Corbin stays strong and one of the others falters he will get the nod. The left-hander began last season in the rotation but was demoted to the bullpen in August. He finished with a 5.15 ERA in 155 2/3 innings.
Feb 27 - 8:18 PM

Diamondbacks and LHP Patrick Corbin avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.95 million contract.

The left-hander was arbitration-eligible for the second time this winter. He put up a disappointing 5.15 ERA for the Diamondbacks last season.
Jan 13 - 4:51 PM

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.
Sun, Aug 14, 2016 11:54:00 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.

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.
