Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin solid on road

Wed, 22 Jun 2016 05:01:55 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin picked up his fourth win of the season Tuesday, June 21, in a 4-2 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. Corbin is now 4-6 overall and 4-1 on the road.

Fantasy Tip: This is where it pays to analyze fantasy matchups. Starting Corbin in Phoenix is not recommended because he hasn't won at Chase Field. However, starts on the road have been much kinder. Corbin is recommended as a starter but only if the Diamondbacks are the road team.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin drops to 3-6

Wed, 15 Jun 2016 16:16:04 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin fell to 3-6 after losing his start Wednesday, June 15, against the Los Angeles Dodgers. He went 6 1/3 innings, allowing three runs on seven hits, including a homer. Corbin also walked three and struck out seven.

Fantasy Tip: Corbin simply has been erratic this year. He's had a fair amount of quality starts such as this one, but he's also had multiple efforts where he would surrender seven runs. Fortunately for his owners, it appears the southpaw is back on the upswing, as he's pitched more than six innings in each of his three assignments this month, nailing down quality starts in two of them. Still, his continued inconsistency makes him less of a dependable option than he used to be.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin has ugly outing

Tue, 31 May 2016 14:09:28 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin allowed nine hits and seven earned runs in 3 1/3 innings in a loss to the Houston Astros Tuesday, May 31, for his shortest outing of the season. His ERA went up to 4.96 and left him with a 2-5 record on the year. Corbin said he was feeling fine physically, but he threw just 40 of his 73 pitches for strikes.

Fantasy Tip: Corbin's strikeouts per nine innings are down to 6.5 from 8.3 last year, and his command is off, walking 2.9 hitters per nine innings. Those two things combined have made him a shaky play in 2016, and you should only play the juicy matchups with him right now.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin eats fourth loss

Thu, 26 May 2016 15:18:28 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin dropped to 2-4 on the year after losing his start Thursday, May 26, versus the Pittsburgh Pirates. The lefty went 5 2/3 innings, allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits and two walks, while also registering five strikeouts.

Fantasy Tip: Corbin has been pretty steady this year, pitching into the sixth inning or beyond in all 10 of his starts, but other than that, he leaves a lot to be desired, especially after that remarkable season he had in 2013. Since coming back from Tommy John surgery, Corbin simply hasn't been as effective, and his strikeout rate has dropped as well. He's just a mixed bag right now.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin building endurance

Thu, 05 May 2016 10:11:57 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin's stuff has been diminished later in his outings, according to manager Chip Hale, and the D-backs plan to monitor him for now late in his starts. Hale thinks the issue will correct itself once Corbin builds endurance coming off Tommy John surgery. Corbin missed all of the 2014 season and wasn't allowed to throw more than 91 pitches in any of his starts last year.

Fantasy Tip: Corbin's velocity has taken a dip slightly later in his outings to begin the year, so this is something to watch as we get into the summer months. As he rebuilds his strength, Corbin is more of a shaky fantasy starter, especially since he's struck out only 5.6 hitters per nine innings in his first six starts of 2016.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin tuned up by Cards

Wed, 27 Apr 2016 23:56:04 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin allowed seven earned runs, seven hits and five walks over 5 2/3 inning in a loss Wednesday, April 27, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: It was an ugly performance for Corbin who saw his record slip to 1-3 with a 4.88 ERA. He hasn't been very ace-like and is killing his fantasy owners. There is still plenty of time to turn it around, however, and you should stick it out and not compound the problem by dropping him and watching Corbin get hot with another fantasy owners team.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin passed by Bucs

Fri, 22 Apr 2016 23:28:42 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin allowed five runs - four earned - and seven hits over six innings in a loss Friday, April 22, against the Pittsburgh Pirates.

Fantasy Tip: Corbin served up three tape-measure homers to hurt his chances of winning. The southpaw has lasted at least six innings in each of his four outings, but he has just two quality starts to show for his efforts. Despite some early uneven results at home he is a must-start fantasy option.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin solid in no-decision

Tue, 12 Apr 2016 16:28:37 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin picked up a no-decision Tuesday, April 12, opposite the Los Angeles Dodgers, but he churned out an otherwise solid outing. The left-hander registered six innings of work, surrendering only one run on six hits, while walking one and striking out one.

Fantasy Tip: While his owners would want more strikeouts, Corbin at least continued his momentum from his first start, when he worked seven pretty good innings against the Rockies. The 26-year-old can be a fine option for mixed leagues, with potential to be a standout starter like he was in 2013 pre-Tommy John.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin serves up three homers

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 16:28:14 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin pitched seven innings in his first start of the year Wednesday, April 6, against the Colorado Rockies. He gave up four runs on eight hits, including three home runs, but also walked none and struck out six.

Fantasy Tip: If not for the home runs allowed, Corbin was very solid today, which is why he was permitted to pitch through the seventh. Although it wasn't the prettiest start to the year, it still indicates he can be a reliable starter in most mixed leagues, as he's also capable of a fine strikeout rate. He's worth monitoring if he gets in a rhythm similar to his lengthy 2013 run.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin strong at Chase Field

Wed, 06 Apr 2016 12:42:28 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin has the second-lowest ERA (2.99) at Chase Field among pitchers with at least 200 innings. Only retired SP Randy Johnson had a better mark.

Fantasy Tip: Corbin has intriguing upside in his first full season following Tommy John surgery. He faces a tough Colorado team Wednesday, April 6, but his home success in a hitter-friendly environment bodes well for Corbin approaching his potential of being a fringe No. 2 fantasy arm.
