At a time when the Arizona Diamondbacks‘ rotation is in flux Kendall Sheffield Jersey , left-hander Patrick Corbin could do well to give them a good start Friday against the Pittsburgh Pirates at PNC Park.

Arizona expects several injured starters to return soon, and roster decisions are coming. Corbin’s spot would not seem to be in jeopardy, but he is coming off some inconsistent performances.

In early May, he was 4-0 with a 2.12 ERA. He goes into Friday’s start with a 6-3 record and a 3.48 ERA and is expected to be matched against Pittsburgh’s Ivan Nova (4-5, 4.42).

Corbin has given up at least five runs in three of his past four starts, including five against the Pirates at home on June 11.

In his most recent outing, a 5-1 loss to the New York Mets on Saturday, he gave up all five runs on eight hits in six innings.

“Just a couple mistakes there,” Corbin said of the game against the Mets. “If I locate better John Cominsky Jersey , different outcome.”

Corbin, who is 1-2 with a 5.90 ERA in five career starts against Pittsburgh, hasn’t been completely off lately. He has 19 strikeouts in his past 16 2/3 innings.

But against the Mets he could not pinpoint his curveball or his fastball.

“I just thought the pitch sequencing was a little bit off, and I thought there were a lot of fastball mistakes out over the plate that were hit, and they were handled by the Mets,” Arizona manager Torey Lovullo said. “Didn’t really get to the secondary stuff the way he typically does, and I think it’s more a product of the game plan and sequencing.”

Lovullo hasn’t lost confidence in Corbin.

“Worrisome? No. Not an issue for me whatsoever. We know that the season is going to have good and bad moments,” he said.

The Diamondbacks (41-33) cruised to a 9-3 win in the series opener Thursday as the Pirates (36-38) lost for the third time in four games.

Pittsburgh dropped two of three last week at Arizona.

Nova was initially scheduled to start Thursday, but the Pirates opted to move everyone back a day when Wednesday’s game against Milwaukee was rained out Qadree Ollison Jersey , rather than do any shuffling with his rotation.

“This group right here has shown the ability to be flexible, to be resilient and also shown some benefits from an extra day (of rest) every now and then,” Pirates manager Clint Hurdle said.

It didn’t pan out that way. Chad Kuhl, who started the opener against Arizona after warming up several times Wednesday when there was false hope that the game against Milwaukee would be played, got rocked by the Diamondbacks for eight runs in two-plus innings.

Nova is coming off two good starts, going 2-0 with a 1.54 ERA since he was removed from the disabled list (sprained finger).

On Saturday, he struggled with his curveball, but it didn’t stop him from allowing just one run and five hits in six innings of a 6-2 win over Cincinnati.

“Even though I walked a couple guys, the fastball command is better than what it was before I hit the DL Ed Oliver Jersey ,” Nova said. “I think I’ve been able to control it a bit better. I think that’s been the key.”

Nova is 1-1 with a 4.00 ERA in three career starts against the Diamondbacks.

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Telvin Smith wants everyone to “stop going crazy” because he is stepping away from football for the 2019 season.Smith, the team’s leading tackler the last two years, posted a video on his Instagram story Saturday in which he questioned the outrage over his decision.“Why is it so crazy I want to step away from the game?” Smith said. “Y’all just chill. Everything’s solid, you feel me? Stop going crazy. It’s getting aggravating. You feel me? Football ain’t everything. Y’all better wake the (expletive) up.”It was Smith’s first public comments since announcing in a letter Thursday that he is temporarily walking away from the game to “get my world in order.”Smith’s decision surprised the Jaguars and caused speculation about his health, his family and his future with the franchise.The speedy, undersized linebacker has missed just four games in five seasons, including two games during his Pro Bowl season in 2017 because of a concussion. He has 586 tackles, nine interceptions Cody Ford Jersey , 7½ sacks and five forced fumbles.Smith had been skipping voluntary workouts and declined to return calls from coaches and team officials. General manager Dave Caldwell seemed to sense something was amiss with Smith during the NFL draft, saying “we’ll see” when asked whether he expected Smith to be on the roster this fall.The Jaguars have added six linebackers in the past two months, including signing former Green Bay starter Jake Ryan in free agency and drafting Murray State’s Quincy Williams in the third round.Smith signed a four-year, $45 million extension in October 2017 that included $20 million guaranteed. He restructured that deal in March 2018, turning an $8 million roster bonus into a signing bonus, which allowed the team to create extra cap space.He is due to make $9.75 million this season but would receive nothing if he stays away.
