MLB Rumors: Yankees, Phillies Or Nationals Expected To Sign Patrick Corbin Soon

Scott Lauber of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that Corbin has returned to the top of their priority list. And because of that - and that NY had reportedly shown interest in trading for Corbin last December - it was expected he would join with the Bronx Bombers. Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are understandably the only two players ranked above him. Nightengale said other teams eyeing Corbin are also aware of the bidding war they could potentially get into with Philadelphia.

Patrick Corben, formerly of the Arizona Diamondbacks, reportedly elected to sign a six-year deal with the Washington Nationals, spurning the Yankees, who often were considered one of the frontrunners for his services.

Corbin, 29, will nearly certainly get the most lucrative contract of any available pitcher.

Philadelphia might be willing to give Corbin his biggest offer since the team is seemingly ready to outspend everyone this winter. According to Tim Dierkes, Corbin is expected to receive a six-year, $129.00 million contract, which is surprisingly a reasonable based on his performance last season. They wanted him, and he and his friends and family made no secret of the fact they wanted a homecoming of sorts.

Corbin, who was an All Star in 2018, finished last season with 3.15 ERA in 33 starts.

I also did not have any problem with his foregoing a two-point attempt to try and win the game in regulation. And the Bears proved they can run the football. until they couldn't, or at least chose not to.

Finishing fifth in the 2018 NL Cy Young voting, Corbin was the best pitcher on a staff that included Zack Greinke.

Washington spending a boatload of money on Corbin may reduce their chances of signing Harper.

I could understand why the Yanks would be hesitant to add in that extra year and if that leads to Corbin signing elsewhere than so be it. He went 2-1 with two holds and a 1.61 ERA over 22.1 innings in the playoffs. He had a 3.81 ERA in 111 innings and impressed during Boston's postseason run.

The left-handed Corbin, who left the Arizona Diamondbacks, joins a Nationals starting rotation that already includes three-time Cy Young Award victor Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg.
