MLB Rumors: Phillies trading for Madison Bumgarner?

Patrick Corbin

The Yankees have missed out on the best free agent pitcher on the market.

At the start of the season, the Nationals were not among the favorites to sign Corbin.

Corbin had a spectacular season in 2018, going 11-7 for the Arizona Diamondbacks, with a 3.15 ERA and a bWAR of 4.6, as well as having 246 strikeouts. There's no doubt they are serious contenders for the 28-year-old, as Corbin recently visited the Phillies and Citizens Bank Park just last week.

According to the Washington Post, the Nationals have agreed to terms with the left-hander, a report confirmed by multiple outlets.

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

Nominations for the 76th annual Golden Globes
DeMille Award, which has gone to icons like Oprah Winfrey, Meryl Streep, Denzel Washington, and George Clooney in recent years. And that run of odd bedfellows is set to continue in 2019, thanks to newly tapped hosting pair Andy Samberg and Sandra Oh .

The expected contract falls in line with the contract that MLB Trade Rumors proposed he might Corbin might receive this offseason in the Top 50 Free Agents list, which was a six-year, $129 million deal.

The Red Sox are on record that they'd like Eovaldi back, but with NY in the picture, the Red Sox won't get him cheaply.

With Corbin being from NY and growing up a Yankees fans, it's hard to imagine him signing with another team if the crew from the Bronx is interested.

Ranger Suarez isn't, and may not ever be, ready to be a guy who can take the ball every five days and turn out quality starts. The Sox might have missed out on one of their targets for the offseason but its still early and they have time to go after other players. The Sox need a consistently reliable starting pitcher for next season. Happ has been seeking a three-year deal, which would carry him through his age 38 season, and Eovaldi, of course, has undergone Tommy John surgery twice before the age of 29. Or, could Cincinnati go a little cheaper with Eovaldi for maybe 3 years at $50 million? After not landing Corbin, are the Yanks more likely to re-sign Happ?

The top free agent starter could be making his decision in the coming days. Bumgarner has really made a name for himself in the postseason, posting an impressive 2.11 ERA in 16 games, helping the Giants win three World Series.
