Patrick Corbin steadies ship with solid outing

Patrick Corbin delivered a quality start on Friday, allowing just one earned run on seven hits and one walk while striking out four over five innings as the Nationals topped the Red Sox 5-1.

Fantasy Impact:

This performance was a refreshing change of pace for Corbin, whose season has been marred by a bloated 5.91 ERA and a 1.78 WHIP across eight starts. Despite the high ERA and WHIP, his outing against the Red Sox showed signs of potential stability, possibly hinting at a turnaround. However, fantasy managers should remain cautious. Corbin's high BABIP of .384 suggests he's been somewhat unlucky this season, but his low strikeout rate of 6.1 K/9 limits his upside in fantasy formats that reward strikeouts heavily. His performance in this game could be a stepping stone, but he'll need to string together more outings like this to regain trust in fantasy circles.
