Nats sign P Corbin to 6-year deal

Bryce Harper Washington Nationals Nationals sign free agent pitcher Patrick Corbin to 6-year, $140M deal

Now, the good news for the Yankees is that their rotation already gained an excellent starter in James Paxton just last week, tossing him into a starting pitching group that consists of Luis Severino, Mashiro Tanaka, CC Sabathia, and Sonny Gray (assuming he remains on this roster).

The Bombers reset their luxury tax threshold, so they have a ton of money to spend this offseason, which is a bit contradicting since they didn't up the ante to sign Corbin - shying away from his desired six-year contract.

Eovaldi, 29 in February, returned from Tommy John surgery with a flourish in 2018, raising his free-agent stock more than perhaps any starting pitcher other than the aforementioned Corbin. That topped the Yankees' offer by a dozen months and $40 million. Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are understandably the only two players ranked above him.


With starting pitcher still a top priority for the Yankees despite acquiring James Paxton from the Seattle Mariners earlier this offseason, a similar situation previous year could offer a bit of insight as to what the franchise might do next. "The reality is that the Phillies also finished as runners-up for Corbin". Some have speculated that Harper and Machado could both fetch deals close to $300 million in total value. However, they have several alternatives as they are reportedly considering J.A. Happ, Nathan Eovaldi and Lance Lynn because when they could not sign Corbin. Happ had a 3.18 ERA in 2016 and a 3.53 ERA in 2017.

I'm undecided on whom the Yanks should sign, either Eovaldi or Happ. The Yankees have reportedly spoken with the Cleveland Indians about a potential trade for Corey Kluber or Carlos Carrasco. He was 7-0 with a 2.69 ERA in 11 starts for the Yankees.

The expected contract falls in line with the contract that MLB Trade Rumors proposed he might Corbin might receive this offseason in the Top 50 Free Agents list, which was a six-year, $129 million deal.
