|Patrick Corbin's hot start turns heads|
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(5/23/13) At the start of spring training, Patrick Corbin was not even assured a spot in the Diamondbacks' rotation, after putting up a 4.54 ERA as a rookie in 2012. After nine starts, however, he has made a case for being the best pitcher in the National League so far this season. His 7-0 record and 1.44 ERA are opening eyes.
"It's impressive," D-backs Opening Day starter Ian Kennedy told MLB.com Thursday. "You're talking about a guy that people said might barely make the team in the fifth spot. He pitches well in Spring Training, but it's Spring Training. Then the season starts and he's doing pretty good now. He's on a roll now. I'm impressed."
Corbin is coming off his best start of the season, a complete-game three-hitter in a win over the Rockies that pushed him into the NL lead in wins. He also ranks second in ERA, eighth in WHIP (0.98) and has a miniscule .196 batting average allowed.
|Patrick Corbin good, but not this good|

(5/21/13) Some of the trade scenarios involving the Diamondbacks' Patrick Corbin in Tuesday's Fantasy Baseball Today chat were positively nutty. Yoenis Cespedes for Corbin? Matt Kemp for Corbin? Get real.
Listen, I like Corbin. I picked him up in a few leagues a couple weeks into the season and have been starting him fairly consistently since then. I even moved him up to 43rd in my starting pitcher rankings after his latest masterpiece at Colorado, of all places. And he deserves it. The improvement he's made this season is legitimate. But just because I've enjoyed what he's done for me doesn't mean I've lost all perspective with him.
He's not Clayton Kershaw. He's not even Matt Harvey. He won't be in the Cy Young discussion at season's end. And when his ERA normalizes to something right around 3.00, his limited strikeout potential will make him less than an automatic start.
Check out Wade Miley's numbers on June 24 last year. Much of what people are saying about Corbin now they were saying about Miley then. No, Miley didn't collapse -- and neither will Corbin -- but his numbers did normalize.

(5/21/13) Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin was nothing short of dominant Monday night in Colorado. He didn't care he was pitching at Coors Field -- the Rockies could barely touch him.
Corbin pitched a complete game as he allowed just one run over 97 pitches in the 5-1 victory. He improved to 7-0 in the process with a pristine 1.44 ERA. The only run he allowed came in the eighth inning on Jordan Pacheco's RBI double.
The 23-year-old struck out 10 batters and gave up only three hits and a walk for his first career complete game. With 51 Ks over 62 1/3 innings and a seven-game winning streak, Corbin has been fantastic. His next scheduled start comes Sunday against San Diego.

(5/15/13) Diamondbacks starter Patrick Corbin ran his record to 6-0 Tuesday night against the Braves. He worked seven scoreless innings, giving up three hits while striking out five. The left-hander also walked five in the 2-0 win.
Corbin threw 58 of his 98 pitches for strikes and lowered his ERA to 1.52.
"I feel good and I just want to keep it going," Corbin said. "Anytime I can go out there and pitch like this is awesome."
His next start is scheduled for Monday against the Rockies.
|Patrick Corbin 'maturing' into reliable arm|
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
(5/14/13) Diamondbacks starting pitcher Patrick Corbin heads into Tuesday's outing against the Braves having won three straight starts and remaining undefeated after seven starts. He's at the beginning of a breakout run, which manager Kirk Gibson believes can last.
"Just maturing and understanding his abilities," Gibson said, per MLB.com. "He has developed his pitches and he's much better at locating them. His velocity has ticked up a bit too because he's growing into his frame. He understands game plans and executes them. He's just good at all facets. He's highly competitive and he's not intimidated by any situation."
|Despite starting 17 games for Arizona in 2012, Pat Corbin looks like a man without a role for the 2013 Diamondbacks. It's not the greatest injustice -- Arizona has a stacked rotation and Corbin produced a 6-8 record and 4.54 ERA -- but there were some bright spots. In August, when Corbin was transitioned back to the rotation, he posted a 3.68 ERA and 1.15 WHIP. However, he followed that up with a 6.03 ERA in September and October. Don't expect much from Corbin in 2013, outside of a long relief/emergency starter role. He can be left undrafted in most formats. (Updated 12/4/12)|
