Martin (lat) was transferred Friday from the 15-day injured list to the 60-day injured list.
This move clears out a 40-man roster spot for lefty reliever Anthony Misiewicz, who the Diamondbacks acquired via trade Friday. Martin is done for the season after undergoing major surgery this spring to repair a right lat tendon avulsion.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Placed on 15-day IL
Arizona placed Martin (lat) on the 15-day injured list Thursday.

Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Likely to miss entire season
Martin (shoulder) is likely to miss the entire 2023 season.
Martin suffered the injury March 15, and he has opted for surgery, according to Arizona manager Torey Lovullo. The manager added Martin is doubtful to return in 2023 while noting it's uncertain when the pitcher will undergo the procedure.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Diagnosed with lat tendon tear
Martin has been diagnosed with a right lat tendon tear, JJody Jackson of Bally Sports Arizona reports.
As Jackson notes, this will cause Martin to miss months and not weeks while he recovers from the injury, and surgery cannot be ruled out at this time. The right-hander was diagnosed with shoulder soreness initially, but imaging revealed the tear. He'll begin the season on the IL, and likely won't be able to help the Diamondbacks until sometime this summer, at the very earliest.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Exits game early
Martin was forced to leave Wednesday's spring training game against Milwaukee after throwing a pitch and collapsing to the ground in pain, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Early speculation is a potentially serious arm injury, but there's been no official confirmation as of yet. Based on the amount of pain Martin seemed to be in, it's possible he may end up missing an extended period of time.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Dealing with shoulder discomfort
Diamondbacks manager Torey Lovullo said Martin is experiencing discomfort in his right shoulder and will undergo further testing Thursday, Steve Gilbert of MLB.com reports.
Martin fell to his knees in pain immediately after throwing a pitch in the fourth inning of Wednesday's game against the Brewers. It was originally speculated to be an arm/elbow injury for the 27-year-old righty, but a shoulder issue is now confirmed. A better idea of how long Martin may be out for should be gleaned from his test results.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Has minor-league option left
The Diamondbacks were awarded a fourth option for Martin, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports.
That means Martin can be sent down to the minors this season without the need to pass through waivers. Teams are sometimes given a fourth year for players who have missed large chunks of time due to injury. Martin is in the mix for a bullpen spot this year after pitching mostly as a starter during his career.... See More ... See Less
Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Shifting to bullpen role
Martin will pitch as a reliever during spring training, Nick Piecoro of the Arizona Republic reports. "He got after it [Thursday]," Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said. "He had extremely high velo, really good, sharp breaking balls."
Martin, who topped out at 97 mph Thursday, has been impressive early in camp, fueling hope the Diamondbacks can salvage something from the pitcher that was seen as the centerpiece of the Zack Greinke trade four years ago. When the right-hander was acquired along with three other players from Houston in 2019, Martin was a starter coming off Tommy John elbow surgery. Subsequent injuries delayed his Arizona debut until 2021. He has had middling results in both the minors and majors since then, but he's embracing the bullpen role, which may be the best thing for his career at this time.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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.... See More ... See Less
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....
