MLB Rumors: Yankees, Phillies Or Nationals Expected To Sign Patrick Corbin Soon

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

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

As it stands, Corbin's choices are believed to be between the Yankees, Washington Nationals and Philadelphia Phillies.

Still on the market is right fielder Bryce Harper, the 2012 NL Rookie of the Year and 2015 NL MVP for the Nationals.

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

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.

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

NY looked like the favorite to sign Corbin when the offseason began because the pitcher grew up in NY and is from a family of Yankee fans.

Additionally, with the Snapdragon 855 , Qualcomm is aiming to deliver a great photography and gaming experience to the users. According to a Bloomberg report released on Monday , Apple will probably release its 5G enabled smartphones only in 2020.

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. The Phillies trade to acquire Segura, a two-time All-Star himself, certainly couldn't have hurt their chances of enticing Corbin to come and play in Philadelphia.

Happ was 7-0 with a 2.69 ERA in 11 starts for the Bronx Bombers last season.

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