The Top Free Agent Starter, Patrick Corbin, Figures to Be Signing Soon

The Top Free Agent Starter, Patrick Corbin, Figures to Be Signing Soon

While Bryce Harper and Manny Machado are taking their time weighing their options, Patrick Corbin is expected to make a decision regarding his future sometime soon.

According to multiple reports, Patrick Corbin will sign a six-year, $140 million deal with the Washington Nationals. The Yankees, who were also in pursuit of Corbin, are interested in bringing back Happ so there is competition for his services.

Corbin was one of the Yankees main targets this offseason.

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 free-agent left-hander will sign with the Washington Nationals, according to the Washington Post and several other sources.

The New York Yankees tried to sign Corbin, and will now turn their attention to Eovaldi and potentially re-signing J, A. Happ, per Fancred's Jon Heyman.

Philadelphia might be willing to give Corbin his biggest offer since the team is seemingly ready to outspend everyone this winter. The Phillies trade to acquire Segura, a two-time All-Star himself, certainly couldn't have hurt their chances of enticing Corbin to come and play in Philadelphia.

Happ was 7-0 with a 2.69 ERA in 11 starts for the Bronx Bombers last season.

Corbin, who has played his entire major league career for the Arizona Diamondbacks, joins a rotation in Washington that already includes three-time Cy Young Award victor Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg.

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 was an All-Star with a 3.41 ERA in 208.1 innings in 2013.

MLB Trade Rumors ranked Corbin as the number three overall free agent in this years class. He went 2-1 with two holds and a 1.61 ERA over 22.1 innings in the playoffs.
