Patrick Corbin struck out 11 Padres over six innings, allowing two runs in 4-2 win Sunday.

Corbin has been the biggest revelation of the 2018 season, and the latest chapter was written Sunday. The southpaw baffled the Padres over his six innings, allowing just two hits and a walk, and a two-run homer by the red hot Christian Villanueva in the sixth inning was the only mark against him. He's now struck out 8-12-9-8-11 in his five starts, leading the National League -- you know, the league with Clayton Kershaw, Max Scherzer and Noah Syndergaard -- with 48 strikeouts. He leads the league in pretty much every other pitching category as well. Corbin will carry a 1.89 ERA and 0.66 WHIP into Saturday's matchup with the Nationals.

Nick Ahmed hit a two-run home run, his third of the year, in Sunday's win over the Padres.

Ahmed jumped on a hanging breaking ball from Padres rookie Joey Lucchesi and hooked it over the left field fence for the two-run shot. The homer was just his second hit in his last eight games, and despite his three jacks, the 28-year-old is hitting just .197/.290/.410 overall.
Apr 22 - 8:26 PM

Paul Goldschmidt went 2-for-2 with a pair of walks and a run scored in Sunday's win over the Padres.

Goldschmidt turned in his sixth multi-hit game in his last 11 contests, raising his season line to .278/.429/.569. He ranks among the National League leaders in runs scored, with 16, and walks, having drawn 17 through 21 games. Of note, he still hasn't stolen a base and has just four homers after stealing 18 bags and hitting 36 bombs a year ago.

Archie Bradley got the last four outs of Sunday's win over the Padres, earning his second save of the year.

With Brad Boxberger showing vulnerability and perhaps some fatigue, Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo turned to Bradley with two outs in the eighth to face the top of the Padres order in Manuel Margot. Bradley fanned Margot to end the frame then worked around a Christian Villanueva one-out double in the ninth to lock down the win. Bradley has been Lovullo's Swiss Army knife this year and has provided value for fantasy owners despite not having a set role, as he's earned two saves while posting a 2.03 ERA, 0.98 WHIP and 16/5 K/BB ratio over 13 1/3 innings. The ratio help is nice, and there's upside for more value from Bradley in the future if Boxberger continues to falter in the closer role.

Jake Lamb (shoulder) will be shut down for the next few days due to tendinitis in his right elbow.

Lamb had finally been making progress in his recovery from an AC sprain in his left shoulder and was nearing a return, but this will set him back a bit. At this point, a return before the end of April seems optimistic.
Apr 22 - 7:43 PM

Chris Owings (head) finished 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and a run scored in Saturday's game against the Padres.

Owings and A.J. Pollock collided in the third inning Thursday and the outfielder was diagnosed with a head contusion. While he was back in the starting lineup, he still hasn't posted an RBI across the past 10 games. Owings got off to a quick start and can be a fantasy asset, but give him a game or two to straighten out before plugging him back into the active lineup.
Apr 22 - 1:44 AM

Paul Goldschmidt finished 2-for-4 with a double, a triple, a run scored and an RBI in Saturday's 6-2 victory against the Padres.

Goldschmidt started out a bit slow by his standards, posting just one double for his only extra-base hit in his first nine games. Since April 9 he has managed four doubles, two triples and four homers in 10 games to give his fantasy owners what they expect. He'll look to keep it rolling in Sunday's series finale against rookie southpaw Joey Lucchesi.
Apr 22 - 1:21 AM

A.J. Pollock (hand) was back in the lineup Saturday against the Padres and he finished 2-for-4 with a solo home run and two RBI.

Pollock was not in the starting lineup on Friday due to a right hand injury, but he didn't show any ill effects of the injury on his oppo smash in the third inning off of Clayton Richard. It appears safe to plug Pollock back into the active fantasy lineup if you haven't already done so.
Apr 22 - 1:05 AM

Zack Godley allowed two earned runs, six hits and a walk with eight strikeouts over 5 1/3 innings in a victory against the Padres on Saturday.

Godley threw just 57 of his 94 pitches for strikes in the outing on his 28th birthday, picking up his third win in four decisions, all against National League West Division foes. His control was back after an erratic outing last time out on the road against the Dodgers, but he still didn't go very deep into the game. He'll look to get back into the quality start column in his next scheduled outing Friday in Washington opposite Stephen Strasburg.
Apr 22 - 1:02 AM

Steven Souza (pectoral) will resume throwing Sunday.

Souza was shut down earlier this month after feeling some soreness in the injured right pectoral, but he's ready to give it another go. The injury has lingered longer than the club initially anticipated, and it's unclear what his path to reinstatement is at this point. A rehab assignment is likely, making an early May return seem like a best-case scenario.
Apr 21 - 5:47 PM

Jake Lamb (shoulder) could travel with the team to Philadelphia for their upcoming road trip, manager Torey Lovullo said Saturday.

The team heads to Philly after wrapping up their series with the Padres on Sunday, so that suggests Lamb is very close to a return. He's been out since April 3 with an AC sprain in his left shoulder. It would be a welcome return for the D'backs, who have been leaning on Deven Marrero and Daniel Descalso at third in Lamb's absence.
Apr 21 - 5:38 PM

Matt Koch will make another start for the Diamondbacks, manager Torey Lovullo said Saturday.

Koch pitched well in his first start filling in for Taijuan Walker, allowing one earned run over six innings against the Padres, so the announcement doesn't come as a huge surprise. The start is likely to come Tuesday against the Dodgers, a tough test against the defending National League champs.
Apr 21 - 5:32 PM

Randall Delgado (oblique) has been pulled back from his rehab assignment and will be shut down for a week.

The news is a bit surprising on the heels of Delgado telling The Athletic's Zach Buchanan that he threw a bullpen session and felt "fine" earlier Saturday. No reason for the club on why he's been shut down. No timetable exists for his return, given this newest development.
Apr 21 - 5:21 PM

Randall Delgado (oblique) threw a bullpen session Saturday.

Afterwards, he declared his arm "fine," according to Zach Buchanan of The Athletic. Delgado has been on the disabled list since March 27 with the left oblique strain, and he missed all of camp with the injury. The club hasn't offered much in the way of a timetable, but if he's throwing well it stands to reason he's close.
Apr 21 - 5:19 PM

Paul Goldschmidt was hitless in three at-bats with a walk and three strikeouts Friday against the Padres.

Tyson Ross was on point for San Diego, as Arizona was unable to produce a hit until the eighth inning. Goldie will look to rebound in Saturday's game vs. LHP Clayton Richard. He is 10-for-27 (.370) with three doubles, a home run, nine walks and six strikeouts with a 1.093 OPS lifetime against Padres southpaw.
