Arizona Diamondbacks RP Corbin Martin pitched four innings on Wednesday, striking out three, walking four, and allowing three hits for two earned runs in the Diamondbacks' 8-7 win over the Marlins.
Martin is considered a starting pitcher but has been used as more of a reliever for the Diamondbacks as he has yet to start a game this year. The "starting pitcher" has an ERA of 4.40 and came in for relief of Madison Bumgarner after he was ejected between the first and second inning.
RHP Corbin Martin took the loss on Friday when he allowed four runs on three hits with two walks over 1/3 of an inning as the Diamondbacks lost to the Padres 11-5.
This was a rough outing for Martin, who didn't even make it out of the first inning. He served up home runs to Tommy Pham and Fernando Tatis Jr. to start things off before loading the bases. He got one out with a sacrifice fly and walked another batter to load the bases again before getting yanked. He was replaced by Riley Smith, who allowed one of the inherited runners to score. Martin has a disastrous 10.69 ERA, 2.31 WHIP, and 13:14 K/BB ratio over 16 innings (five games, three starts) on the season. He's slated to face the Cardinals on the road in his next turn but it's TBD if Arizona will roll him out there given his struggles.
RHP Corbin Martin took the loss on Tuesday when he allowed six runs on five hits with three walks and two strikeouts over four innings in an 8-0 loss to the Giants.
Things started off poorly for Martin, who allowed a bases-clearing double to Brandon Crawford in the opening frame. He then surrendered a three-run bomb to Evan Longoria in the third inning that put San Francisco up 6-0. That was more than enough to saddle him with the loss as the Diamondbacks didn't score a single run. Arizona has now lost nine games in a row. Martin owns a 9.00 ERA and 1.78 WHIP over nine innings (two starts). He'll try and get on track in his next turn against the Cardinals this weekend.
RHP Corbin Martin took the loss on Tuesday when he allowed three runs on four hits with four walks and six strikeouts over five innings in the D-Backs' 9-1 loss to the Dodgers.
Martin was making his Arizona debut on Tuesday and was victimized by the long ball. Mookie Betts smacked a solo shot off of him in the first inning and Chris Taylor got him for a two-run blast in the fifth frame. He also issued four free passes in the outing. The 25-year-old has replaced Luke Weaver in the starting rotation for now and should get another turn, possibly this weekend against the Rockies.
Corbin Martin is going to pitch in one of the next two games against the Dodgers, according to John Gambadoro.
Martin has a 1.86 ERA and 1.14 WHIP so far in two starts in Triple-A and was a very solid prospect before undergoing Tommy John surgery in 2019. He still has long-term value, but he's not someone to eye in redraft formats just yet. If he succeeds against the Dodgers, he'll be worth a look in deeper leagues.
