Corbin fired five scoreless frames in his start against the Rangers on Tuesday afternoon.

EDGE Analysis

He was very sharp throughout the outing, striking out five and pounding the strike zone (56 pitches, 42 strikes). Corbin appears to have the edge in the competition for the No. 5 starter job to begin the season, especially since Archie Bradley has been inconsistent this spring. The left-hander leaned heavily on his fastball Tuesday, sitting at 91-94 mph with the pitch, an encouraging sign after his fastball velocity dipped slightly in 2016.

Corbin is currently listed one of the team's five members of the starting rotation on the D-backs' official site.

EDGE Analysis

Archie Bradley and Braden Shipley are listed behind Corbin, who may be destined for the bullpen depending on how the competition for the final two spots in the rotation plays out. Shelby Miller, who listed as the team's fourth starter, will also have to earn his spot this spring, but the most likely scenarios include Corbin moving to the bullpen and Bradley beginning the season back at Triple-A Reno if the starters atop the depth chart remain healthy between now and Opening Day.

Corbin agreed to a one-year deal with the Diamondbacks on Friday, avoiding arbitration.

EDGE Analysis

The terms of the agreement were not announced. Corbin is coming off a pretty terrible year in which he posted a 5.15 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and 131:66 K:BB in 155.2 innings. He will compete with Shelby Miler, Archie Bradley and Braden Shipley for the final two spots in the big league rotation this spring.

Corbin pitched three perfect innings with four strikeouts to finish off Thursday's win over the Dodgers for his second career save.

EDGE Analysis

Indeed, Corbin did get a save back in his rookie year of 2012, but had been a starter (or injured) since. This was a nice outing and all, but it really just serves to highlight that he's now a long reliever who rarely appears in important situations.

Corbin pitched two innings in Sunday's loss to the Padres, allowing three hits and two runs (both earned). He struck out two and walked one.

EDGE Analysis

The move to the bullpen hasn't changed the results for Corbin, who's struggled pretty much all season. Since shifting to a relief role, he's tossed 4.1 innings and has allowed six hits and five earned runs. For the season, the lefty now has a 5.73 ERA to go along with a 1.67 WHIP.

According to manager Chip Hale, Corbin is heading to the bullpen.

EDGE Analysis

In his last three starts, Corbin has surrendered a total of 11 earned runs, but his defense has made it look even worse, adding seven more unearned runs to that line. In any case, the southpaw and his 5.58 ERA now appear to be slated for long relief, though the team has yet to announce a replacement option.

Corbin (4-10) threw 5.1 innings against the Dodgers on Sunday, allowing six runs, although only three earned, on eight hits and three walks while striking out six. He took the loss.

EDGE Analysis

Corbin actually pitched alright Sunday, but his defense cost him with a pair of key errors by Jake Lamb and Chris Owings. The errors caused both unearned runs and extra baserunners allowed, as Corbin was forced to face extra hitters following the blunders. Unearned runs have been something of a pattern for Corbin lately: he has allowed at least one unearned run in four of his five most recent starts. Even after allowing for the poor defense, Corbin has had a miserable July, going 0-4 with a 6.30 ERA. He'll look to right the ship against the Brewers on Saturday.

Corbin (4-9) allowed four runs on six hits and three walks while striking out six over five innings, but received no decision Tuesday at the Brewers.

EDGE Analysis

Corbin allowed three runs in the first inning, and settled down before giving up a run in the sixth inning that broke a 3-3 tie, but the offense scored late to take him off the hook for a possible loss. Opponents have now scored at least four runs off him in each of his last six starts, and his ERA is at a season-high 5.31. He'll make his next start Sunday against the Dodgers.

Corbin (4-9) lasted 5.2 innings, allowing six runs (five earned), nine hits and two walks while striking out four Jays in Wednesday's loss.

EDGE Analysis

Corbin's day started with a Josh Donaldson splash-landing in the Chase Field swimming pool during the first frame. After five pitches, Corbin found himself in a 2-0 hole that foreshadowed the rest of his day. The lefty is now 0-7 at home, but at least his next start on Monday will be in Milwaukee.
