Free Agent Prize Patrick Corbin Signs Six-Year Deal with Washington Nationals

The Phillies are aiming to add one starter to the rotation, Heyman continues, with a left-hander in particular being a preference.

In addition to Corbin, the Phillies have also been linked to both Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, the top two free agents on the market. Corbin visited with the Phillies and the Yankees last week, and NY was reportedly unwilling to offer a sixth year.

The free agent market for starting pitchers is strong but when it's all said and done Corbin is expected to be the highest paid among the bunch and should sign a contract of at least six years. When you're a franchise like the New York Yankees that's usually enough to get a player to sign on the dotted line as long as they're willing to pay him what he's looking for.

However, this is the first report that seems to signal Philadelphia may be in front of the listed teams in regards to the chances of signing the two-time All-Star, as well as news that they aren't afraid to outspend any other potential suitor. Eovaldi made 12 appearances for the Red Sox last season after being acquired from the Tampa Bay Rays.

After going 82-80 and failing to make the playoffs after two NL East titles in a row, Washington has been busy this off-season. The Phillies telling Corbin they won't be out-bid isn't surprising, especially after owner John Middleton's remarks to Nightengale in which he said they expect to be a "little stupid" about how they spend their money.

Per MLB.com's Jamal Collier, Corbin's deal with worth six years and $140 million.
