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

The bad news is this means they might turn their sights on Nathan Eovaldi.

Adding to the speculation about his move from the desert to the Big Apple, Corbin spoke openly with USA Today's Bob Nightengale in April about his potential future with the Yankees. 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.

Corbin, 29, will nearly certainly get the most lucrative contract of any available pitcher.

The Washington Nationals have agreed to sign former Arizona Diamondbacks pitcher Patrick Corbin to a six-year deal worth more than $126 million, pending a physical, according to multiple reports, including the Washington Post's Chelsea Janes.

The signing of Corbin - who had drawn interest from the New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies, among other clubs, and was expected to draw offers of at least $20 million a year - could be a signal that the Nationals are moving on from Harper. The Phillies were one of the top contenders for Corbin.

Shang-Chi in the comics was launched alongside the rise of films like Enter the Dragon , and meant to capitalize on that success. Callaham has had a hand in co-writing Wonder Woman 1984 , and he's now at work on a sequel to Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse.

Washington spending a boatload of money on Corbin may reduce their chances of signing Harper.

With the departure of Corbin, Arizona's returning members from the rotation last season are Zack Greinke, Zack Godley and Robbie Ray. For his efforts, Corbin finished fifth in the National League Cy Young Award voting.

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.

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. He had a 3.81 ERA in 111 innings and impressed during Boston's postseason run.

The New York Yankees, among others, are awaiting a decision from free-agent left-handed pitcher Patrick Corbin. He went 2-1 with two holds and a 1.61 ERA over 22.1 innings in the playoffs.
