Corbin is the likely choice to start Game 4 for the Diamondbacks in the NLDS, but it's not official, and he may be available out of the bullpen for Game 2 on Saturday, Eric Stephen of TrueBlueLA.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Arizona will look to even the series Saturday, so they may require Corbin to come in if Robbie Ray can't eat enough innings. Expect the D-backs to reveal a finalized rotation after Game 2.

Corbin will be available out of the bullpen this weekend in Kansas City.

EDGE Analysis

Zack Greinke, Taijuan Walker and Robbie Ray will start this weekend as Corbin gets acclimated to a bullpen role in preparation for the postseason. Corbin has endured a couple rough starts lately, but he went on a great run in July and August, reestablishing himself as a viable major-league starter after a disastrous 2016 season.

Corbin allowed two runs on five hits while walking four and striking out five over 6.2 innings Sunday against the Marlins. He didn't record a decision in the 3-2 victory.

EDGE Analysis

Interestingly enough, Sunday snapped a 12-game streak of decisions for Corbin, who went 8-4 with a 3.41 ERA during that span. He's projected to make one more start in the regular season Saturday in Kansas City before he and the D-Backs set their sights on the playoffs.

Corbin (14-13) allowed four runs on four hits and three walks while striking out three batters through five innings to take the loss against San Diego on Monday.

EDGE Analysis

The lefty had allowed a single run or fewer in seven of his past eight games, with the outlier an uncharacteristic shellacking -- eight runs allowed through 4.1 frames -- also at the hands of the Padres. Aside from the odd poor outing, 2017 has been an impressive rebound for Corbin, and he now sports a serviceable 3.42 ERA, 1.28 WHIP and 8.7 K/9 through 13 second-half games. Corbin projects to face the Marlins at Chase Field in his next start.

Corbin (14-12) picked up the win against the Rockies on Wednesday, allowing only one run on four hits and two walks over 6.2 innings while striking out seven.

EDGE Analysis

It was a strong return to form for Corbin after he got pummeled by the Padres his last time out. The left-hander now has a 3.16 ERA, 1.27 WHIP and 73:22 K:BB in 74 second-half innings over 12 starts, and he'll get a shot at some revenge against the Friars in his next trip to the mound Monday in San Diego.

Corbin (13-12) was the pitcher of record in the Diamondbacks' 10-6 loss to the Padres on Friday, serving up eight runs on 11 hits and three walks in 4.1 innings.

EDGE Analysis

Corbin came up short as the Diamondbacks' franchise-record 13-game winning streak came to a close, a surprisingly development given the quality of opponent and how well he and pitched of late. The lefty entered Friday with a 5-0 record, 0.50 ERA and 0.79 WHIP over his previous five starts and looked well on his way to another strong outing after keeping the Padres off the board through three innings, but he completely unraveled in the fourth, allowing seven consecutive batters to reach base at one point before recording the final out of the frame. Corbin's solid body of work on the whole of late shouldn't completely result in fantasy owners losing faith in him, though he'll draw a more difficult matchup in his next scheduled turn Sept. 13 against the Rockies.

Corbin (13-11) was charged with two runs (one earned) on two hits over 5.1 innings in a win over the Rockies on Saturday. He struck out four and issued three walks.

EDGE Analysis

The lefty's now earned wins in five straight starts with a mere two earned runs allowed in that span (35.2 innings). He's gotten stronger as the season's progressed, which makes sense as he's further removed from Tommy John surgery. Corbin will have a great opportunity to continue this outstanding stretch with the Padres due up next.

Corbin (12-11) tossed seven shutout innings in an 11-0 win over the Giants on Sunday. He gave up five hits, issued one walk and struck out eight.

EDGE Analysis

Corbin has been on some kind of roll lately, rattling off victories in four straight starts and going 6-2 in his last eight. He's piled up 52 strikeouts to go with just 13 walks (four came in one game) during that span, and has put up a goose egg in the earned-run column thrice in his last four starts. Corbin may have his work cut out for him in his next start at Coors Field on Saturday, but he's still worth a look if he's available on your wire.

Corbin improved to 11-11 on the strength of eight strong innings against the Mets on Tuesday, striking out six while allowing just a single run on four hits and two walks.

EDGE Analysis

While there have been some stumbles along the way -- most notably a brutal implosion against the Cubs on Aug. 1 -- and he's been burned by unearned runs at times, Corbin has turned in a highly fantasy-relevant 13-start stretch. During that span, he's tossed exactly 80 innings, putting up a 2.93 ERA and 1.28 WHIP with 84 strikeouts. He's been particularly sharp since that awful outing in Chicago, having given up just four earned runs with a 31:6 K:BB in 29.1 innings over his last four starts, including a scoreless rematch against the Cubs and a near complete-game shutout in Houston. All in all, it looks like the lefty is finally starting to regain his pre-injury form. There'll still be bumps in the road, but he's raised his stock considerably nonetheless.

Corbin (10-11) pitched 8.2 scoreless innings with seven strikeouts during Thursday's win over Houston. He allowed just four hits and a walk.

EDGE Analysis

Corbin has struggled on the road this season with a 6.79 ERA away from Chase Field, so this gem was all the more impressive coming at Minute Maid Park. The lefty entered Thursday's outing in solid form over his previous 12 starts with a 3.65 ERA and 10.3 K/9, despite allowing a .372 BABIP. The strikeouts are especially valuable, and with Arizona pushing for a playoff berth, Corbin should continue to be a solid source of wins down the stretch. He projects to face the Mets at Citi Field in his next start.
