Corbin (2-7) allowed three runs on 10 hits and three walks while striking out three over seven innings in a loss to the Mets on Thursday.
There was a lot of traffic on the bases, and while Corbin was able to work around that traffic early, the Mets ultimately cashed in for three runs against the lefty in the fifth and sixth innings. Corbin ends his disappointing 2020 campaign with a 4.66 ERA, 1.57 WHIP and 60:18 K:BB in 65.2 frames. He saw a big velocity dip across the board, and that's especially concerning for a 31-year-old with a history of elbow trouble.
Corbin struck out seven but allowed seven runs on 14 hits in a 7-3 loss to the Marlins on Saturday.
Corbin (2-6) has given up at least five runs in two of his three previous starts. After throwing over 400 innings to the tune of a 3.20 ERA across the previous two seasons, he has regressed in 2020. In addition to a 4.76 ERA, Corbin resides in the bottom fourth of qualified starters for expected ERA. A silver lining is that Corbin has gone two straight starts without issuing a walk. He'll look to keep that streak alive against the Mets on Thursday, with better results in other areas.
Corbin (2-5) took the loss Saturday against the Braves despite giving up two runs on nine hits with eight strikeouts and zero walks over seven innings.
The nine hits allowed tied a season high for the veteran lefty, but he was able to limit the damage by giving up zero walks or extra-base hits. Corbin has a 4.10 ERA, 1.44 WHIP and 50:15 K:BB through 52.2 innings and is set to pitch against the Marlins next weekend.
Corbin (2-4) allowed five runs on nine hits and four walks while striking out six over 5.1 innings to take the loss Sunday against Atlanta.
Corbin is going through a rough patch as he's been charged with losses in four of his last five starts. The southpaw began Sunday's contest by tossing three scoreless innings, but the Atlanta offense got to him over the next few innings prior to his removal. He allowed a season-high 13 baserunners Sunday and now carries a 4.34 ERA and 1.47 WHIP over 45.2 innings this year. He'll get another shot to face Atlanta on Saturday at home.
Corbin (2-3) took the loss Tuesday in Philadelphia after giving up two runs on five hits with two strikeouts and three walks over five innings.
It certainly wasn't the left-hander's best outing, but he was going to have a difficult time avoiding the loss regardless with the offense providing zero run support. Corbin has a 3.79 ERA, 1.34 WHIP and 36:11 K:BB through 40.1 innings and will look to get back in the win column Sunday in Atlanta.
Corbin allowed two runs on seven hits (one home run) and two walks while striking out three across six-plus innings Wednesday against the Phillies. He did not factor into the decision.
Corbin served up a third-inning solo shot to Rhys Hoskins before running into some more trouble to begin the seventh after Didi Gregorius lined a triple that rolled to the left field wall. Corbin would not face another hitter but was charged with a second run after Gregorius was singled home by the very next batter. The 31-year-old southpaw has four quality starts in six outings but has been inconsistent with his ability to limit hits and record punchouts. He'll try to get into the win column in a rematch against the Phillies on Monday.
Corbin (2-2) allowed three runs on eight hits and two walks while striking out nine over 6.1 innings as he was charged with the loss Friday against the Marlins.
Corbin was quite effective over his first three starts of the season, but he's now been charged with back-to-back losses. He tallied a season-high nine strikeouts against the Marlins, but a second-inning rally by Miami put Corbin in line for the loss. The southpaw now carries a 3.99 ERA with 31 strikeouts over 29.1 innings this season. He'll attempt to return to the win column at home Wednesday against the Phillies.
Corbin (2-1) took the loss versus the Orioles on Saturday. He gave up five runs on eight hits and a walk and struck out two in five innings.
Saturday's five-inning effort was Corbin's shortest outing of the year. The southpaw's ERA inflated to 3.91 with a 1.17 WHIP and 22:4 K:BB in 23 innings this season. Corbin's been fairly steady in 2020 -- he'll look to get back in the win column Friday versus the Marlins.
Corbin (2-0) picked up the win in Monday's 16-4 rout of the Mets, allowing two runs (one earned) on five hits and two walks over six innings. He struck out four.
The southpaw fired five scoreless innings before running into a bit of trouble in the sixth, but by that point the Nats had a 14-0 lead. Corbin needed 87 pitches (54 strikes) to record his second quality start in three outings and reduce his ERA to 2.50. He'll look to keep rolling when he next takes the mound Saturday in Baltimore.
Corbin (1-0) allowed three earned runs on eight hits and a walk while striking out eight across 5.2 innings to earn the win Tuesday against the Mets.
Corbin cruised through three innings, walking one and allowing one hit while fanning four. The big blow against him came in the fourth inning, when he surrendered a two-run home run to Michael Conforto, though another run crossed the plate in the fifth frame when he allowed three consecutive singles. Though Corbin may not have had his best stuff -- he generated 11 swinging strikes on 102 total pitches -- he held the Mets largely to only base knocks, earned the win, and racked up plenty of strikeouts. Corbin is projected to make his next start Monday in a rematch against the Mets.
Corbin is slated to start Tuesday's game against the Mets in Washington, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
After their three-game series in Miami this past weekend was postponed due to COVID-19 concerns, the Nationals will return from a four-day break Tuesday. Manager Dave Martinez has opted to use the off days to reorder the pitching schedule, as Corbin and Max Scherzer will take the hill for the two games versus the Mets. The Nationals are only scheduled to play five games this week and may not have Stephen Strasburg (hand) available for any of those contests, so Corbin could be in store for a two-start week if Martinez opts to temporarily shorten the rotation to four men. In that scenario, Austin Voth or Erick Fedde would likely move to the bullpen to clear room for Corbin to start Sunday's series finale with the Orioles.
Corbin allowed one earned run on two hits and no walks while striking out eight across 6.1 innings Sunday against the Yankees. He did not factor into the decision.
Corbin retired the first 11 batters he faced -- five via strikeout -- before allowing an infield hit. The only damage against him came in the seventh inning, when Gleyber Torres took him yard. Corbin worked very efficiently, requiring only 75 pitches to retire 19 batters. He'll look to carry this performance into his next start, currently projected for Friday at Miami.
Corbin's goal is to build up to six innings or 100 pitches by Opening Day, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports. "I feel pretty positive that I'll be able to get there," he said.
He threw 43 pitches Saturday and will throw again Monday. In a season in which many pitchers will likely be on pitch counts in their first starts, Corbin would theoretically be as stretched out as just about anyone for his first turn in the rotation. He is expected to start July 26 at home against the Yankees.
Corbin threw a bullpen session Friday, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
The Nats' top three starters (Corbin, Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg) all got in work Friday as the club tries to quickly ramp up before Opening Day later this month. There was no indication of how many pitches Corbin was able to throw, however, so while GM Mike Rizzo described him as being in "full bullpen mode," how close he is to being ready for the regular season is still unclear.
Corbin got the start in Saturday's Grapefruit League game against the Cardinals, allowing one run on one hit and two walks over two innings with one strikeout, Jessica Camerato of MLB.com reports.
The Nats have taken it very easy with most of their key arms to begin the spring, and Corbin was the last of the established starters to make his debut. Expect the southpaw to remain on a regular schedule from here on out, with plenty of time for him to get stretched out before Opening Day.
Corbin will start Game 4 of the World Series against the Astros on Saturday, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.
Corbin was initially scheduled to start Game 3 of the World Series but was deemed not ready after entering in relief during Game 1 on Tuesday. However, the 30-year-old wasn't needed in the team's 12-3 victory Wednesday, making him available for Saturday's game. The southpaw has recorded a 6.91 ERA with 28 strikeouts in 14.1 innings pitched over the postseason.
Corbin will not start in Game 3 of the World Series against the Astros on Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
Manager Dave Martinez announced that Anibal Sanchez would start the third game of the series after Corbin threw 21 pitches in relief during Game 1. After playing catch Wednesday, Martinez said the team will see how Corbin feels, with the possibility of him pitching in relief again Wednesday during Game 2, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports. The 30-year-old could start in Game 4, but Martinez was noncommittal about the starter for Saturday's game and expressed confidence in how Corbin has performed out of the bullpen.
Corbin could still start Game 3 of the World Series against the Astros on Friday, Jesse Dougherty of The Washington Post reports.
While Corbin was initially named the starter for Game 3, his status became uncertain after he threw 21 pitches over one inning of relief work Tuesday during Game 1. However, the 30-year-old was playing catch Wednesday prior to Game 2 and is likely still in play to start Friday's game at Nationals Park. The southpaw allowed one hit while recording two strikeouts in his one inning pitched Tuesday.
Corbin (1-0) gave up four earned runs on four hits and three walks with 12 strikeouts over five innings in Tuesday's 7-4 win over St. Louis in Game 4 of the NLCS.
The lefty was simply dominant through the first four innings, recording 10 of the first 12 outs via strikeout and giving up just a Yadier Molina solo homer in the fourth. Corbin finally ran into trouble in the fifth and gave up three more runs before fanning Paul Goldschmidt and Marcell Ozuna to end the inning and turn things over to the bullpen. The Cardinals will face either the Yankees or Astros in the World Series, where Corbin will presumably start Game 3.
Corbin will start Game 4 of the NLCS against the Cardinals on Tuesday, Mark Zuckerman of MASN Sports reports.
The 30-year-old pitched Game 1 of the NLDS against the Dodgers, allowing two runs (one earned) on three hits and five walks while recording nine strikeouts over six innings pitched. Corbin recorded a 14-7 record with a 3.25 ERA over the regular season. The southpaw's availability could be limited later in the series if necessary, especially with Max Scherzer pitching Game 2 and Stephen Strasburg starting Game 3, which would give them more rest.
