We solve the orbitally degenerate two-band Hubbard model within dynamical mean field theory and map out the instabilities to various symmetry-broken phases based on an analysis of the corresponding lattice susceptibilities. Phase diagrams as a function of the Hund coupling parameter J are obtained both for the model with rotationally invariant interaction and for the model with Ising-type anisotropy. For negative J, an intraorbital spin-singlet superconducting phase appears at low temperatures, while the normal state properties are characterized by an orbital-freezing phenomenon. This is the negative-J analog of the recently discovered fluctuating-moment induced s-wave spin-triplet superconductivity in the spin-freezing regime of multiorbital models with J>0.
