Patrick Corbin, Diamondbacks reach $7.5M, one-year deal, avoid salary arbitration

The Arizona Diamondbacks have avoided salary arbitration with third baseman Jake Lamb, center fielder A.J. Pollock, lefty starter Robbie Ray and several other players by reaching deals on one-year contracts. He lost in arbitration a year ago, getting $4.7 million instead of the $5.1 million he sought.

The 28-year-old was 14-13 with a 4.03 ERA last season and made $3.95 million. An All-Star in 2015, he missed almost the entire 2016 season after breaking his elbow in a headfirst slide at home plate near the end of spring training.

Corbin was among 12 Diamondbacks eligible for arbitration entering Thursday, including pitchers Shelby Miller, Brad Boxberger, Andrew Chafin, Robbie Ray and Taijuan Walker; outfielders A.J.

Lamb, who gets $4,275,000, was a significant player in the lineup of the team that earned the top spot in the NL wild-card race past year. He hit 30 home runs with 105 RBIs.

Ray ($3.95 million) was 15-5 with a 2.89 ERA. He was acquired in a trade with Tampa Bay.

The team came to agreements on one-year deals with Patrick Corbin and Randall Delgado earlier in the week.
