Player Outlook
Corbin Martin geared up as a reliever during spring training of 2023 but suffered a tendon tear in his right latissimus that required surgery. As such, he didn't pitch last season. It was the second significant injury for Martin, who underwent Tommy John elbow surgery in 2019 that delayed his development. The right-hander hasn't returned to the pre-TJ form he had as a prospect in the Astros system. There is an opening for a fifth starter entering the spring, but it's unclear if Martin will be healthy enough to compete. More should be learned about the organization's plan for the right-hander and his readiness during spring training.

  • Brewers' Corbin Martin: Claimed by Milwaukee

    Martin was claimed off waivers by the Brewers and was assigned to Triple-A Nashville on Sunday, Curt Hogg of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Martin was designated for assignment by the Diamondbacks last week and will now make his way to the Brewers. The right-hander made just two appearances at Triple-A Reno prior to being DFA'd, and he allowed three runs on three hits and three walks over three innings.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Dropped from 40-man roster

    Arizona designated Martin for assignment Sunday. The Diamondbacks selected infielder Kevin Newman's contract from Triple-A Reno in a corresponding move, with Arizona making room for him on the 26-man active roster by placing shortstop Geraldo Perdomo (knee) on the 15-day injured list. Once one of the more prized young arms in Arizona's organization, Martin is now 28 years old and hasn't pitched in the big leagues since 2022. He underwent Tommy John surgery in 2019 and required another major operation last spring, when he had a procedure to address a right lat tendon avulsion. Martin ended up missing the entire 2023 season, and though he's been healthy to begin the 2024 campaign, he's been lit up for three earned runs on three hits and three walks over three innings between his first two relief appearances at Triple-A Reno.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Sent to Triple-A

    The Diamondbacks optioned Martin to Triple-A Reno on Monday. Martin was slow-played this spring after missing all of last season with a tear in the lat tendon of his right shoulder. He's healthy now and could contribute out of the Diamondbacks' bullpen at some point this season. He'll try to sharpen his command at Reno.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Makes spring debut

    Martin (lat) allowed one hit and struck one over one scoreless inning in Tuesday's spring game against the Padres. Martin pitched in a game for the first time since last spring. He missed the entire 2023 season due to a tear in the lat tendon of his right shoulder. The right-hander may not have enough time to be ready for the start of the season, but Martin's performance Tuesday suggests he'll get an opportunity to contribute for the Diamondbacks at some point in 2024.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Transferred to 60-day IL

    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.

  • Diamondbacks' Corbin Martin: Placed on 15-day IL

    Arizona placed Martin (lat) on the 15-day injured list Thursday. Martin recently underwent season-ending surgery to address a right lat tendon avulsion. The Diamondbacks will move him to 60-day IL once they need to open up a 40-man roster spot.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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: 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: 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: 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.
