The Arizona Diamondbacks have become known for their under-the-radar pitching staff these last few years. Whether it was Ian Kennedy’s break-out 2011 season, Wade Miley’s ROY-runner up 2012 season, or Patrick Corbin’s 6-0 start this season (hopefully that becomes 7-0 after tonight’s game).
They don’t all have the skills of Justin Verlander, or the super-star status of players like Tim Lincecum or CC Sabathia. But the pitchers they have assembled have turned heads in the MLB, and more than one team would love to add them to their own rosters.
Patrick Corbin is currently tied 5th for wins this season, but among the top 10 pitchers (for Wins), he holds the distinction of lowest ERA at 1.52. (Only Shelby Miller and Clayton Kershaw have lower ERA’s this season, but both have lost 2 of their games).
Many share Chipper Jones‘ recent sentiments:
This Corbin dude is pretty nasty!

Tonight Corbin hopes to continue his “nasty” ways by leading the D’backs...
BEST OF MAXIM
Patrick Corbin who most casual baseball fans have never heard of is now 7-0 to start the year with a 1.44 ERA, slightly below the league leader Clayton Kershaw. The lefty is 7-0 with 2 no decisions, and the Diamondbacks are 9-0 in games he has started. In his 9 starts, he has allowed 2 runs twice, 1 run four times and 0 runs twice. With all the talk about young pitchers such...
Coors Field has always been known as hitters park, just don’t tell that that to Patrick Corbin.
DENVER (AP) -- Patrick Corbin tossed a three-hitter for his first complete game and struck out a career-high 10, leading the Diamondbacks to a 5-1 win over the Rockies on Monday night.
Corbin (7-0) joined Randy Johnson as the only lefties in team history to begin the season 7-0. He also turned in his club-record ninth straight start in which he's pitched at least six innings...
Patrick Corbin has been pretty good this year. The Diamondbacks' young lefty is 7-0 -- making him the franchise's first left-hander to start a season with seven straight wins since Randy Johnson in 2000 -- following a dominant 10-strikeout, three-hit, complete-game win over the Rockies on Monday.
Corbin also has a ridiculous 1.44 ERA thanks to nine straight starts of six...
23-year-old upstate New York native Patrick Corbin has been dominating the National League. Bring up his name and you might get the ‘deer in headlights’ look from your average baseball...The post Arizona Diamondbacks’ Patrick Corbin Demands Your Attention appeared first on Bohemian Baseball.
The lowest ERA on the Diamondbacks right now belongs to Matt Reynolds. The lowest ERA on the Diamondbacks belonging to a pitcher who’s thrown more innings than a really long baseball game belongs to Patrick Corbin. Monday night, Corbin took the mound in Coors Field with an ERA of 1.52. He came away with an ERA even lower than that, and at present his ERA is the second-lowest in...

Last week we asked fantasy owners a handful of questions about some players’ early-season performances. Throughout the week we received a whole bunch of responses, crunched the numbers, and now you get to see the results! Here are some insights from our week 7 survey.If you want to take part of next week’s survey…Click here to take the Week 8 survey!Now on to Week 7′s results...
Patrick Corbin may not receive the type of publicity normally reserved for an unbeaten starter with his success, but the Arizona Diamondbacks are well aware of how spectacular he's pitched.
Arizona has won each of Corbin's eight starts this season, and it will look to end the host Colorado Rockies' three-game winning streak Monday night.
Corbin (6-0, 1.52 ERA) has tossed...
The Arizona Diamondbacks are in 1st place in the NL West. One of the major contributors this season has been 23 year old starting left-handed pitcher Patrick Corbin. In all 9 of his starts, he's gone at least 6 innings and has not allowed more than 2 runs in any of them. That's 9 straight quality starts to begin the season. Stats: 7-0, 9 GS, 62.1 IP, 51 K, 1.44 ERA, 0...
Coors Field is not exactly a pitcher’s paradise, unless you’re Patrick Corbin. Corbin struck out 10 batters, allowing one run, and walked one in a complete-game victory over the Colorado Rockies.
Corbin needed only 97 pitches for the win and 74 of those were strikes. He lowered his ERA to 1.44 and improved his record to 7-0 on the season an joins Randy Johnson as the only...
Jon Garland might be the odd man out if he doesn't figure it out soon.Jim Tracy would have loved his post game press conference on Monday night if he was still with the Colorado Rockies. It was the perfect opportunity for him to use a classic cliche line that he seemed to pull out far too often in his tenure with the Rockies."Sometimes you've gotta tip your cap to the...
Bullish: Edwin JacksonEdwin Jackson is currently sporting a 1-6 record with a 5.76 ERA. Those aren’t numbers that are useful in fantasy baseball. Chances are Edwin was cut or can be had for a very small price in your fantasy league. I’ve never been a huge Jackson fan but he is definitely not as bad as he looks right now and could help your team going forward. He has been allowing...
Gibson’s club battled back, but lost to the Rockies in the 10th inning.
One night after getting a dominating performance from Patrick Corbin, the Arizona Diamondbacks staged a late comeback, but were defeated by the Colorado Rockies in extra innings, 5-4.
In what has become too common this season, Ian Kennedy didn’t pitch real well, but he gave Arizona a chance to earn a victory...
Recently I was watching Baseball Tonight, and the host tasked the analysts with listing the top five starters in the National League. First up was Doug Glanville, whose list included Patrick Corbin, Shelby Miller, and Matt Harvey, the most tenured of which (Corbin) has thrown only 160.1 innings in the majors. Miller hasn’t even made ten career starts. None of these guys have...
