Patrick Corbin will not pitch again for the Nats this season due to a blister on his left hand.
Corbin started last night against the Rockies and could have handled the Nationals’ season finale on Sunday versus the Red Sox, but there’s no reason to force the issue.
The 32-year-old southpaw wraps up the 2021 campaign with a highly disappointing 9-16 record, 5.82 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, and 143/60 K/BB ratio in 31 starts covering 171 2/3 innings. He is under contract with Washington for $23.4 million in 2022, $24.4 million in 2023, and $35.4 million in 2024.
