Phillies free agency rumors: Team won’t be outbid for Patrick Corbin

Phillies “in strong position” in Corbin sweepstakes, won’t “be out-bid”

It might not be long before we have our first major free-agent signing of the 2018-2019 MLB offseason. The Phillies are aiming to add one starter to the rotation, Heyman continues, with a left-hander in particular being a preference.

The Post's Joel Sherman reported that the Yankees had been steadfast on a five-year deal for Corbin.

- A person familiar with the deal says All-Star pitcher Patrick Corbin has agreed to a six-year contract with the Washington Nationals, pending a physical exam. Of the bunch, Keuchel is subject to draft-pick compensation for a new team after rejecting a one-year, $17.9MM qualifying offer from the Astros. Nightengale tweeted that Corbin will get at least a six-year, $125 million contract according to several executives. It seems the deal Yu Darvish signed with the Cubs last winter served as something of a framework for Corbin's deal, with him getting a bump because he's two years younger and is coming off a better platform year.

From the Syracuse area in NY, the left-handed starter grew up a fan in a Yankees household and attended Cicero-North Syracuse High School.

Mark Feinsand of MLB.com noted that the Yankees will make re-signing J.A. Happ or Lance Lynn, along with pursuing Boston Red Sox postseason hero Nathan Eovaldi, their next step should Corbin sign elsewhere.

Washington could be the favorites to win the NL East next year if they sign Corbin.

By Corbin's second season, he'd reached All-Star status, going 14-8 in 32 starts with a 3.41 ERA and 1.17 WHIP.

The New York Yankees, among others, are awaiting a decision from free-agent left-handed pitcher Patrick Corbin.

Comparatively, National League Cy Young award victor Jacob deGrom and Trevor Bauer were the only two players to rank above Corbin in the FIP category. deGrom had a phenomenal 1.99 FIP and Bauer had a solid 2.44 FIP.
