Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin solid Saturday

Sat, 15 Aug 2015 20:04:07 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin allowed three hits and struck out eight over 6 2/3 scoreless innings in a win over the Atlanta Braves Saturday, Aug. 15.

Fantasy Tip: Corbin ($7,600, 15.2% of cap) rebounded from two mediocre performances to shut down the Braves, and while some highs and lows are to be expected as he returns from Tommy John surgery, Corbin is averaging more than a strikeout per inning and is worth taking a chance on at FantasyScore against friendly matchups.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin looking good

Tue, 04 Aug 2015 12:00:08 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin is looking and feeling good in his return from Tommy John surgery. His fastball is still reaching the upper-90s and his offspeed pitches are generating plenty of swings and misses. "My elbow feels really good," Corbin said. "If anything, there's other parts of my body that are a little bit sore after starts. But I'm happy with where I am. I'm pleased with how my arm is feeling. I'm just looking to continue this for the rest of my year." He's been at his best the last two games on just four days of rest. The D-backs may give him more rest as the season winds down so that he can get through the season fully healthy. Manager Chip Hale said the team doesn't expect Corbin to go past 90 pitches in any of his outings this year as a precaution.

Fantasy Tip: Corbin's ($7,500, 15.0% of cap) results are very encouraging for the rest of the season and beyond. The fact that his strikeout numbers are up and he's not walking many is huge for fantasy owners. Corbin should be owned in all leagues. His daily value take a bit of a hit with a pitch count every time out, but you could do much worse for the price.

Diamondbacks | Patrick Corbin fans 10 during loss

Sat, 25 Jul 2015 05:47:49 -0700

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin struck out 10 batters while allowing a single run on four hits and a walk over seven innings during Arizona's 2-1 loss to the Milwaukee Brewers Friday, July 24.

Fantasy Tip: This was Corbin's ($5,700, 11.4% of cap) best of four starts since returning from Tommy John surgery Saturday, July 4. Fantasy owners should expect the odd peak and valley as he works his way back, but his upside warrants ownership in the majority of yearly leagues. He is cheap at FantasyScore, too, and worth targeting in favorable matchups.

Fantasy Tip: Corbin ($4,300, 8.6% of cap) will be returning after recovering from Tommy John surgery. He likely will be on a pitch count during game, which does not make him a great option on FantasyScore. Owners on deeper mixed leagues and NL-only leagues could consider adding him to their roster.

Arizona Diamondbacks SP Patrick Corbin (elbow) will make two more rehab starts, according to manager Chip Hale Tuesday, June 23.
