The Washington Nationals make a surprise splash and swipe former Arizona Diamondbacks ace and top free-agent starter Patrick Corbin on a 6-year $140 mil deal. He will immediately slot in as the team's number three starter in the rotation behind Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg to form an intimidating threesome.
Nightengale also tweeted that Corbin is expected to receive a contract of at least six years and $125 million.
According to the Washington Post, the Nationals have agreed to terms with the left-hander, a report confirmed by multiple outlets.
The 29 year-old lefthander is coming off a season in which he went 11-7 with a career low 3.15 ERA (70 ER/200 IP) and 1.05 WHIP.
He finished fifth in voting for NL Cy Young honors; Scherzer was second as he came up just shy of a third consecutive prize.

The Yankees have missed out on the best free agent pitcher on the market.
For starters, Corbin did not go to the New York Yankees, who reportedly were interested in signing him and offered a five-year contract. Even in the past week, both the Yankees and Phillies made a strong push to sign him. Surely the Sox need a starting pitcher that can pitch 200 innings as Corbin did in 2018. Now that he is in the National League East, he will see the Phillies 19 times per season. The bad news is this means they might turn their sights on Nathan Eovaldi.
Therefore, if they are hesitant to overpay for an older pitcher, Philly could turn their attention to a former A.L. Cy Young award victor. He's been most prominently connected to his hometown Astros and the Red Sox as of late - neither of whom figure to be thrilled with the concept of the Yankees making an increased push to sign the flamethrowing righty.
It was reported that the Dodgers had made a major play for the right fielder by using minority owner and National Basketball Association legend Magic Johnson to lead the delegation to convince him to move to LA.
"The only time I remember meeting Bryce Harper was on the field at Dodger Stadium two years ago when Dusty Baker introduced us", Johnson said, as quoted on Yahoo Sports.
