Washington Nationals reportedly agree six-year deal with Patrick Corbin

Patrick Corbin Arizona Diamondbacks

NY looked like the favorite to sign Corbin when the offseason began because the pitcher grew up in NY and is from a family of Yankee fans. They'll apparently renew their interest in J.A. Happ and Nathan Eovaldi.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale also reported that the Phillies have told Corbin they will not be "out-bid" by any other team interested in his services, a bold declaration that signals the Phillies are living up to the aggressive label they've been carrying the past month. If he goes to the Phillies, then, having already landed Jean Segura, it makes you wonder how aggressive they will be on Manny Machado and Bryce Harper.

In the aftermath of the news breaking about Corbin's destination, another report, this one from MLB Network's Jon Morosi, claims that the Yankees will now turn their attention to two familiar faces after missing out on Corbin.

Because the contract is for more than $50 million, Arizona will get a compensation draft pick after the first round and before Competitive Balance Round A because it is a revenue-sharing team.

The Washington Nationals signed free agent starting pitcher Patrick Corbin to a six-year, $140 million free agent contract Tuesday, pending a physical exam, according to multiple sources. Like the Yankees, both teams have money to spend and need a pitcher like Corbin to boost their starting staffs.

With the departure of Corbin, Arizona's returning members from the rotation last season are Zack Greinke, Zack Godley and Robbie Ray. He made himself a prime second-tier starter on this year's market with a strong 2018 (6-7, 3.81) and spectacular postseason (2-1, 1.61). He was an All-Star with a 3.41 ERA in 208.1 innings in 2013.

Corbin went 14-13 with a 4.03 ERA and a 1.42 ERA in 2017.
