Yankees Turn To J.A. Happ And Nathan Eovaldi Following Corbin Miss

J.A. Happ Philadelphia Phillies MLB

Corbin was one of the Yankees main targets this offseason. Going by those now well-recited comments, fans could expect the Phillies could keep pursuing Corbin as well as free agents like Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, in addition to possibly more players.

After a lot of speculation that he was set to sign a six-year deal, Chelsea Janes of the Washington Post dropped the bombshell Nats fans were hoping for, reporting that he was set to sign in D.C. pending a physical. The left-hander met with the Philadelphia Phillies, Washington Nationals and New York Yankees last week.

It's reportedly a three-team race for Corbin. Nightengale tweeted that Corbin will get at least a six-year, $125 million contract according to several executives. They wanted him, and he and his friends and family made no secret of the fact they wanted a homecoming of sorts. Keuchel, a two-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove victor, hasn't been as dominant since winning the 2015 AL Cy Young Award, but he led the AL in starts last season and has turned in a sub-4.00 ERA in four of the past five seasons.

Corbin is coming off a career year in 2018 when he went 11-7 with a 3.15 ERA and struck out 246 in 200 innings.

Washington spending a boatload of money on Corbin may reduce their chances of signing Harper. Corbin's decision will keep him out of the unsafe American League East and he will stay in the more comfortable NL, with plenty of other arms around him. He went 2-1 with two holds and a 1.61 ERA over 22.1 innings in the playoffs. He was one of Boston's World Series heroes after he pitched scoreless innings in Games 1 and 2 and then threw six late innings in a Game 3 that would become the longest game in World Series history.

NY was reportedly unwilling to offer Corbin a six-year deal, which was a deal breaker for the former Diamondbacks star.
