Patrick Corbin is a two-time All-Star and a 2019 World Series champion with the Washington Nationals.
The Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim selected Corbin in the second round of the amateur draft in 2009.
He was signed for $450,000 by scout Tom Kotchman and made his Pioneer League debut with the Orem Owlz that summer, going 4-2, 5.05 in 13 games.
He began 2010 with the Cedar Rapids Kernels, where he won eight of his nine starts while getting one no-decision. When he was promoted to the Rancho Cucamonga Quakes, his ERA was 3.86.
He went 5-3 with a 3.88 ERA in 11 starts there. Corbin was dealt to the Arizona Diamondbacks for Dan Haren on July 25, 2010, along with a player to be named later, Rafael Rodriguez, and Joe Saunders.
In August, Tyler Skaggs was dispatched to complete the deal. Despite a brilliant 1.38 ERA for the Visalia Rawhide, he remained in the California League for the rest of the season, going 0-1 in 8 starts.
Between the three stops, he went 13-4 with a 3.42 ERA, pitching 144 2/3 innings with 136 strikeouts and 36 walks.
In 2011, he was promoted to the AA Mobile Bay Bears, where he went 9-8 with a 4.21 ERA in 26 starts. He returned to Mobile to begin 2012, where he was 2-0 with a 1.67 ERA in four starts until the D-Backs called.
Patrick debuted in the big leagues against the Miami Marlins on April 30, 2012.
He pitched 5 2/3 innings in lieu of Josh Collmenter in the rotation, giving up three runs after taking a 7-0 lead but winning the game as Arizona won 9-5.
