Nats sign P Corbin to 6-year deal

Arizona Diamondbacks Patrick Corbin reacts after he gave up home run to New York Mets Anthony Recker in MLB game in New York

Bryce Harper is among the biggest prizes in free agency this offseason, and it only seems natural he'd be linked to the New York Yankees as a result.

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. They got one by acquiring James Paxton from the Mariners.

Corbin, a two-time All-Star left-hander in Arizona, agreed to a six-year, $140 million contract, according to the Washington Post. That topped the Yankees' offer by a dozen months and $40 million.

The Yankees also had interest in Corbin, but reportedly were unwilling to go beyond a five-year offer.

You hope all players all the time run things out, play hard or give it their all, but [it's] not necessarily the No. 1 thing I look at when I am defining whether a player is giving his all or is a gamer or posting [playing every day] and being a guy who grinds when it's difficult behind the scenes, " Boone said Wednesday on ESPN radio's "The Michael Kay Show".

Corbin joins an already pricey rotation that includes both Max Scherzer ($210 million total contract value) and Strasburg ($175 million). Multiple reports have put the Yankees in on Nathan Eovaldi, Dallas Keuchel or re-signing J.A. Happ. Happ, who split last season between the Blue Jays and Yankees, turned 36 in October. Although these numbers far exceed his career 3.91 ERA, his career 3.65 FIP, and his career 1.285 WHIP, he may have very well finally put everything together during his age-28 season. The Yankees have reportedly spoken with the Cleveland Indians about a potential trade for Corey Kluber or Carlos Carrasco.

The Indians ace would take a Yankees rotation from solid to elite, the 32-year-old averaging 17 wins, and a 2.85 ERA since 2014. The deal will be for six seasons, keeping Corbin in a Nationals uniform through the 2025 season.
