Corbin (2-4) pitched 5.2 innings, allowing five runs (four earned), six hits and two walks while striking out five in Thursday's loss to the Pirates. There's no shame in losing to one of the best teams in the league, but Corbin's overall numbers raise some serious red flags. His 6.23 K/9 is well below his 7.51 career average. In addition, Corbin is issuing walks at a career-worst rate of 2.72 BB/9. The left-hander's fastball is down (91.5 mph) and his home runs allowed are up (1.44 HR/9). Corbin's value is limited outside of the deepest leagues.
Corbin (2-3) allowed two runs on four hits and four walks while striking out seven over 6.1 innings to earn the win Friday at the Cardinals. Corbin struggled with his control, but was able to limit the damage, and he left the game with a two-run lead in a game the Diamondbacks would go on to win. He's now tossed four straight quality starts and lowered his ERA to 3.99. He'll make his next start Thursday at the Pirates.
Corbin allowed three runs and nine hits and one walk while striking out four over 6.1 innings, but received no decision Saturday against the Giants. Corbin left the game with a two-run deficit, but the offense scored runs late to take him off the hook for a possible loss. He has now allowed three or fewer earned runs in each of his last three starts, and he owns a 4.14 ERA. He'll make his next start Friday at the Cardinals.
Corbin (1-3) came away with a no-decision Sunday despite tossing seven scoreless innings, allowing five hits and a walk while striking out five. The Diamondbacks did eventually win the game in extra innings, but that's little consolation for anyone with fantasy shares in Corbin. The outing lowered his ERA to 4.12, and he'll try to carry that momentum into his next start, at home against the Giants on Saturday.
Diamondbacks manager Chip Hale said Corbin's stuff has been diminishing later in games recently, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. Hale said he thinks it's a matter of rebuilding endurance for Corbin, who missed all of the 2014 season and a big chunk of 2015 as he recovered from Tommy John surgery. "We really have to keep a close watch in the fifth, sixth inning, to see where his velocity is and how his stuff is," Hale said. Fantasy owners should expect shorter outings from Corbin in the near term. He is currently 1-3 with a 4.88 ERA.
