RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Before the All-Star break, Corbin was having a potential Cy Young year, posting a 2.35 ERA in the first half, but his less-than-stellar second half (5.19 ERA, .286 BAA) sunk his overall season stats. Still, he was a pleasant surprise for those who took a late flyer on him, thanks in large part to his ability to pound the strike zone and maintain steady peripherals with an uptick in fastball velocity (he averaged a career-high 92.1 mph). It remains to be seen if he can be a true ace, but he still figures to be at the top of the Diamondbacks' 2014 rotation.
After pitching very well during his first exposure at Triple-A Reno, Corbin entered the mix for the Arizona rotation and held his own despite seemingly poor results. Although his strikeout rate fell in the big leagues (7.2 K/9) from Reno (9.5 K/9), Corbin demonstrated good control (2.1 BB/9) and his primary weakness was a propensity to give up home runs. Things appeared to click for Corbin in August, as he had a 34:8 K:BB in 36.2 innings (3.68 ERA, 1.15 WHIP) before struggling in September. A former second-round pick, Corbin is often overlooked as the second piece of the trade that once sent Dan Haren to Anaheim, but he's a polished left-hander with good control of a four-pitch arsenal, and should be a frontrunner to land a rotation spot in spring training.
Corbin is often overlooked as the "other" prospect the D-Backs received in the Dan Haren trade with the Angels in 2010, but he's proven to be a nice young pitcher in his own right. The 22-year-old led the Southern League in innings pitched (160.1) and strikeouts (142) while pushing his way into consideration for a late-season callup to Arizona. Thanks to a stockpile of young pitching talent, Corbin will likely spend most of 2012 at Triple-A Reno and could ultimately be a trade chip if the likes of Tyler Skaggs and Trevor Bauer make their respective big league impacts as expected.
Corbin was one of the farmhands included in the Dan Haren trade orchestrated by interim general manager Jerry Dipoto in July. While he wasn't the centerpiece, the development of Corbin and Tyler Skaggs will ultimately determine whether the D-Backs received an acceptable return for their ace. At age 21, Corbin finished the season strong at High-A Visalia and compiled a 136:37 K:BB over 144.2 innings between Low-A and his two High-A clubs. While Corbin may not have the arsenal of a future ace, he still has projectability if his velocity increases and he could advance quickly depending on how his first taste of Double-A goes.
