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.

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.
Corbin was charged with two runs (one earned) on three hits over six innings in a loss to the Dodgers in Game 1 of the NLDS on Thursday. He struck out nine and walked five.
The left-hander was wild early, walking four of the first six batters he faced, including Max Muncy with the bases loaded. He eventually settled in, but Washington's bats couldn't get anything going against Walker Buehler and company on the other side, so Corbin was saddled with the loss. This may be the last we see of Corbin in 2019, unless the Nationals are able to force a Game 5.
Corbin will start Game 1 of the NLDS on Thursday against the Dodgers, Jamal Collier of MLB.com reports.
Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg combined to cover eight innings during Tuesday's Wild Card victory over the Brewers, leaving Corbin to open the series in Los Angeles. The left-hander finished the regular season with a 3.25 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 238:70 K:BB over 202 innings.
Corbin allowed six runs on seven hits with two walks and eight strikeouts across 4.1 innings during a no-decision against the Indians on Saturday.
This was supposed to be just a short tune-up outing, but Corbin ended up throwing 94 pitches. He racked up eight punchouts for the fifth time in his last seven outings, but Corbin missed an opportunity at his 15th win, which he would have earned had he recorded two more outs. He finishes the regular season 14-7 with a 3.25 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 238 strikeouts in 202 innings.
Corbin is expected to have his start Saturday against Cleveland shortened so that he can be available out of the bullpen for Tuesday's wild-card game, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.
The Nationals want all hands on deck to help them qualify for the divisional round, and that includes Corbin, who would be pitching on just two days' rest if called upon Tuesday. It's unclear exactly how long he's expected to go in Saturday's game.
Corbin (13-7) allowed one run on three hits and four walks over six innings Monday, striking out six batters and earning a win over the Phillies.
Corbin's line may not look too impressive but he kept Philadelphia off the scoreboard for five innings before allowing his first and only run in the sixth. After issuing four free passes Monday, he's up to 17 walks in 28 innings this month. The 30-year-old southpaw owns a 230:68 K:BB for the season. Corbin will make his final regular-season start of 2019 at home against Cleveland on Saturday.
Corbin isn't listed among the Nationals' probable starters for the team's three-game series in Miami over the weekend, Byron Kerr of MASN Sports reports.
Since Corbin had pitched in Tuesday's 6-2 win over the Cardinals, the Nationals could have brought him back Sunday on his normal four days' rest, but No. 5 starter Austin Voth will instead get the nod for the series finale with the Marlins. The extra day off should help Corbin recover from Tuesday's 110-pitch outing while also allowing the Nationals to deploy the southpaw against a direct competitor in the NL wild-card race instead of the last-place Marlins. Corbin now lines up for his next turn in Monday's series opener with the Phillies in Washington.
Corbin (13-7) picked up the win in Tuesday's 6-2 victory over the Cardinals, allowing two unearned runs on five hits and four walks over six innings. He struck out 11.
The 11 whiffs tied his season high, a figure Corbin last reached July 7. The southpaw has delivered quality starts in seven of his last eight trips to the mound, posting a 2.16 ERA, 1.14 WHIP and 60:20 K:BB through 50 innings over that stretch. Corbin will look to keep rolling in his next outing Sunday in Miami.

Corbin kept on rolling against Minnesota, tossing his seventh quality start in his last eight outings and nabbing his 12th win of the season. He's having a stellar campaign for the Nationals, posting a 3.20 ERA, 1.15 WHIP and 213:60 K:BB across 185.2 innings. The left-hander will look to keep it going in his next start, which will come on the road against the Cardinals on Tuesday.
Corbin (11-7) took the loss Friday, giving up two runs (one earned) on three hits and six walks over five innings while striking out nine as the Nationals fell 4-3 to Atlanta.
The lefty wasn't at his sharpest -- the six free passes were a season high for Corbin -- but he generated a whopping 20 swinging strikes among his 107 pitches (63 total strikes) and fanned at least eight batters for the fifth time in his last six starts, a stretch during which he's posted a 2.13 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 46:16 K:BB over 38 innings. Corbin will look to get back into the win column Thursday in Minnesota.
Corbin (11-6) allowed three runs on three hits and three walks while striking out eight over six innings of work as he cruised to an easy win against the Marlins on Sunday.
Corbin had a historic day on the mound as he became the third pitcher on the Nationals' staff to record 200 strikeouts during the 2019 season. He had a particularly good day overall as he worked four shutout innings before running into some trouble in the fifth, where he gave up all three of his runs on a Starlin Castro solo home run, an Austin Dean RBI double, and a Bryan Holaday RBI sacrifice fly. He then went on to pitch a scoreless sixth and was done for the day after 95 pitches. The southpaw now owns a 3.19 ERA to go along with a 201:54 K:BB ratio across 174.2 innings in 2019. He slated to start next against the Braves in Atlanta on Friday.
Corbin is scheduled to make his next start Sunday against the Marlins, Brittany Ghiroli of The Athletic reports.
Corbin looked on track to make only one start (Tuesday against the Orioles) this week, but he'll now get a two step after manager Dave Martinez elected to shorten the rotation to four men on account of Thursday's off day. The lefty was unable to come away with a win despite a strong showing versus Baltimore (seven innings of two-run ball), but he'll have a good opportunity to claim his 11th victory when he takes on a 47-85 Marlins squad.
Corbin (10-6) struck out nine while allowing two runs on four hits with zero walks across seven innings while taking a loss against the Orioles on Tuesday.
For the fourth straight start, Corbin yielded two runs or fewer, but he was not rewarded with a win for his efforts. He has one victory in his past four outings despite a 1.67 ERA during that stretch. Corbin has taken a lot of no-decisions this season, so this was his first loss since June 11. Overall, he owns a 3.15 ERA, 1.13 WHIP and 193 strikeouts in 168.2 innings. Corbin will face the Mets at home in his next start Monday.
Corbin (10-5) picked up the win Wednesday, giving up three hits and two walks over eight scoreless innings while striking out four in an 11-1 victory over the Pirates.
The southpaw didn't allow a runner past second base and left the game after 93 pitches (63 strikes), but Tanner Rainey blew the combined shutout in the ninth. Corbin will take a 3.17 ERA and 184:51 K:BB through 161.2 innings into his next start Tuesday, at home against the Orioles.
Corbin allowed one run on seven hits with four walks and eight strikeouts across six innings during a no-decision against the Brewers on Friday.
The four walks hurt his WHIP and the offense didn't support him enough to earn the win, but it was still a good night in the ERA and strikeout categories. Corbin has eight whiffs in three of his last four outings, but his success extends back a lot further than that. Since June 19, the lefty is 4-0 with a 2.37 ERA and 86 strikeouts in 68.1 innings across 11 outings. Overall, he is 9-5 with a 3.34 ERA, 1.18 WHIP and 180 strikeouts in 153.2 innings this season. Corbin is scheduled to pitch next at the Pirates on Wednesday.
Corbin didn't factor into the decision in Saturday's 4-3 loss to the Mets, giving up two runs on three hits and a walk over six innings while striking out eight.
The southpaw stumbled in the fourth inning, serving up two solo homers, but otherwise Corbin dominated the Mets and was in line for his 10th win of the year before another Nats bullpen meltdown, this one from Fernando Rodney. Corbin will carry a 3.41 ERA and 172:45 K:BB through 147.2 innings into his next start Friday, at home against the Brewers.
