  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Optioned to Triple-A

    Martin was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Monday.

    Martin was knocked around by Atlanta in his last start, so he will return to Reno for the time being. Martin broke camp with the big club back in April, so he will likely get another shot to show what he can do at the top level before the season ends.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Gives up three homers

    Martin (0-1) took the loss Saturday versus Atlanta. He allowed four runs on six hits and a walk with six strikeouts in four innings.

    All of the runs against Martin came via the long ball. He gave up solo shots to Matt Olson and William Contreras as well as a two-run blast also to Contreras. Prior to Saturday, Martin hadn't allowed a homer at the major-league level this year. The poor outing raised his ERA to 4.84 and his WHIP to 1.66 through 22.1 innings. He's added 21 strikeouts and 12 walks in seven appearances (two starts), though his spot in the rotation remains only tenuously in his hands. He should be considered likely to start until Zach Davies (shoulder) or Tyler Gilbert (elbow) can return, which likely means Martin is tentatively set for a home start versus the Rockies next week.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: In line for another start

    Martin is listed as the Diamondbacks' scheduled starting pitcher for Saturday's game in Atlanta.

    Coming out of the All-Star break, Martin entered the Diamondbacks' rotation as a replacement for Dallas Keuchel, who was designated for assignment. The 26-year-old right-hander limited the Nationals to one earned run over four innings in his first outing for the big club since May 4, but the outing was marred by the five free passes he issued. Despite Martin's bout with wildness, he looks like he'll get at least one more chance to prove he belongs in the big-league rotation.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Another start not assured

    Arizona manager Torey Lovullo did not commit to keeping Martin in the rotation following a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Nationals, Theo Mackie of the Arizona Republic reports. The right-hander's spot comes due Saturday in Atlanta.

    Martin was given first crack at a backend rotation spot after the Diamondbacks designated Dallas Keuchel for assignment. He avoided damage Sunday, allowing one run over four innings despite nine baserunners and just one strikeout. Martin earned an opportunity after showing improvement at Triple-A Reno, which included the development of a curveball to complement a fastball/changeup heavy repertoire. He threw just six of them Sunday -- "It wasn't a pitch he had a great feel for today," Lovullo said. That, compounded with an inability to consistently locate his changeup, made Martin rely heavily on his fastball.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Wild in first start

    Martin allowed a run on four hits and five walks with one strikeout in four innings, taking a no-decision in Sunday's loss to the Nationals.

    Martin made his first big-league start of the season, but he had trouble finding the strike zone. He threw only 36 of 71 pitches for strikes, though he was able to effectively limit the damage with some help from his defense -- the Diamondbacks turned a double play and picked off Victor Robles on a stolen base attempt. Martin has a 3.93 ERA, 1.64 WHIP and 15:11 K:BB through 18.1 innings in six outings (one start) with Arizona this year. It's not clear if he'll stick in the rotation going forward, but he lines up for a road start in Atlanta next weekend if he gets another start. Martin likely has a path to remain a starter at least until Zach Davies (shoulder) can return, which isn't expected to be until August at the earliest.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Promoted for Sunday's start

    Martin was recalled from Triple-A Reno and will start Sunday against the Nationals.

    The 26-year-old was previously announced as the starter for Sunday's contest, and he's now officially been added to Arizona's active roster. Martin has come out of the bullpen in his five big-league appearances this year and has a 4.40 ERA and 14:6 K:BB across 14.1 innings, though he's worked as a starter in the minors and delivered eight shutout innings for Reno in his last start.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Starting Sunday

    Martin will start Sunday's game against the Nationals, Jody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports.

    The 26-year-old will have a chance to earn a spot in the Diamondbacks' rotation after Dallas Keuchel was designated for assignment Wednesday. Martin made five relief appearances for Arizona earlier this year and posted a 4.40 ERA and 1.47 WHIP in 14.1 innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Candidate for rotation slot

    Martin could be an option to enter the Diamondbacks' rotation after the team designated Dallas Keuchel for assignment Wednesday, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. The right-hander has a 5.10 ERA over 12 starts (60 innings) at Triple-A Reno.

    Martin had been a candidate a month ago for the rotation, but Arizona went with the veteran Keuchel, who eventually logged a 9.64 ERA with 27 hits and seven walks allowed over four starts (18.2 innings). With a decreasing strikeout rate and increasing barrel rate, the Diamondbacks pulled the plug on Keuchel and are expected to look at one of their young hurlers at Reno, including Martin, who was the key piece in the deal that sent Zack Greinke to Houston three years ago. The right-handed Martin has pitched well in back-to-back starts, most recently firing eight shutout innings for the Aces one week ago. The organization may also consider lefty Tommy Henry, who has a 3.55 ERA over 18 starts (96.1 innings) at Reno.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: In mix for rotation?

    Martin struck out a career-high 13 batters and walked one over 5.2 innings for Triple-A Reno on Tuesday.

    Martin's posted four excellent outings over his last five starts for the Aces, making a strong case to be considered for the open the Diamondbacks' No. 5 starter job. The right-hander has mixed in a curveball more effectively, Arizona assistant general manager Amiel Sawdaye told Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. "I think the curveball gives him a little bit more separation (from his fastball and slider), a little bit more depth," Sawdaye said. "(Earlier this season), he would throw it every once in a while, but he didn't really want to throw it that much. Clearly, now he's throwing it more and it's giving him a little bit more of a swing-and-miss pitch." The Diamondbacks haven't named any starters yet for this weekend's series against the Tigers, but manager Torey Lovullo plans to use a fifth starter during the set. Martin should be a considered a longshot with Dallas Keuchel the most likely candidate.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Optioned to Triple-A

    Martin was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    He had a 4.40 ERA, 1.47 WHIP and 14:6 K:BB in 14.1 innings working as a long reliever with the big club. Marin will presumably stay relatively stretched out at Triple-A.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Throws bulk relief

    Martin allowed two runs on three hits and four walks while striking out three over four relief innings in Wednesday's 8-7 win over Miami.

    Martin didn't wake up knowing he'd be the bulk-inning pitcher Wednesday, but he was needed after Madison Bumgarner was ejected after the first inning. Forced to warm up on short notice, Martin walked two and gave up a single to the first three batters faced, and the first two runners eventually scored. The right-hander settled in after that, providing critical relief and allowing Arizona's bats to impact the game. It was the fourth time in five outings that Martin has thrown two innings or more.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Back in big leagues

    Martin was recalled by the Diamondbacks on Saturday.

    Martin was optioned Thursday but is eligible to return just two days later with Sean Poppen (shoulder) hitting the injured list. Martin seemingly has a future in the Diamondbacks' rotation but has been a reliever thus far this year, striking out nine and walking just two while allowing a pair of earned runs in six innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Optioned to Triple-A

    Martin was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Thursday.

    Martin began the season in the major-league bullpen and gave up two runs on five hits and two walks while striking out nine in six innings during his two relief appearances. Although he was relatively effective, he'll head to the minors after infielder Matt Davidson's contract was selected Thursday.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Working in long relief

    Martin gave up three runs (one earned) on two hits and two walks while striking out five in four innings of relief Sunday against the Padres.

    Caleb Smith gave up five runs (four earned) in just one inning, so Martin came in behind him to log bulk innings. The Diamondbacks opted to open the year with Martin in the bullpen, but he is relatively stretched out, so he could be used as a spot starter when needed.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Makes second spring appearance

    Martin allowed two runs on two hits and one walk while striking out two over 2.2 innings in a spring training start against the Dodgers on Monday.

    Martin made his second appearance and first start of the Cactus League. Both outings were for multiple innings, so he's being stretched out as a potential starter for Arizona, which is looking to fill the fifth spot in the rotation. Zach Davies is the leading candidate, but he may not be ready the first week of the season. If Martin doesn't stick with the Diamondbacks -- as a starter or long reliever -- he'll likely serve as a starter at Triple-A Reno.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Optioned to Triple-A

    Martin was optioned to Triple-A Reno on Friday.

    Martin was sent down following a disastrous start in which he allowed four runs against the Padres while recording just a single out. He's had a very tough time in 16 major-league innings this season, allowing 19 runs while posting a 13:14 K:BB. Brett de Geus was added to the roster in the corresponding move.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Knocked out in first

    Martin (0-3) allowed four runs on three hits and two walks over a third of an inning and took the loss Friday as the Diamondbacks fell to the Padres.

    Martin gave up back-to-back home runs to open the game and later hit a batter among the seven hitters he faced. He has given up 23 hits -- including five HR -- 19 runs and 14 walks over 16 innings, which has manager Torey Lovullo re-thinking the decision to put him in the rotation. "We'll sit down and have some conversations as a staff and figure out the best thing moving forward for him and the rest of the group," the manager said when asked if the club will reconsider Martin's spot in the rotation, per Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. If a change is made, Riley Smith, who provided 3.2 innings of relief Friday, could get the call next Wednesday in St. Louis.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Starting Friday

    Martin will start Friday's series opener against the Padres in San Diego, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.

    Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo confirmed the assignment for Martin, who has not gotten off to a good start with the team. The 25-year-old right-hander has an 8.62 ERA and 2.04 WHIP over four outings (two starts). Martin believes he's trying to be too fine with his pitches, particularly with two strikes. "I think I'm picking the zone a little bit too much," he said. "I would say that at some point I try to be too perfect with two strikes and that's when I'm losing guys." Opposing batters are hitting .281/.395/.563 off Martin with two strikes, while the league average in those situations is .161/.237/.259.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Pitches bulk relief Tuesday

    Martin allowed two runs on four hits and two walks while striking out two over three relief innings in Tuesday's 9-8 loss to the Giants.

    Martin was called up Monday, seemingly to join Arizona's rotation, but he piggybacked with Alex Young, who made his first start of the season. With the Diamondbacks missing several starters due to injury, manager Torey Lovullo is kicking around the idea of using more piggyback or tandem starters, as reported by Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic. "We have been thinking about that," Lovullo said. "That's been a strong part of our conversation." The Diamondbacks may eventually add Martin as a full-fledged rotation member and let his development continue at the MLB level.
