With Patrick Corbin signed, market heats up for Nathan Eovaldi

  • Patrick Corbin

-Magic Johnson and the Los Angeles Dodgers met with free agent outfielder Bryce Harper in Las Vegas on Monday night.

The Yankees also had interest in Corbin, but reportedly were unwilling to go beyond a five-year offer.

However, this is the first report that seems to signal Philadelphia may be in front of the listed teams in regards to the chances of signing the two-time All-Star, as well as news that they aren't afraid to outspend any other potential suitor. Of course, these are the three sites of Corbin's meetings last week. He has a career 3.03 ERA in 252 starts. Eovaldi went 23-11 with a 4.45 ERA in 51 appearances with the Yankees in 2015 and 2016. There are a number of starting pitchers available for the Sox to sign to help improve their starting rotation.

And then you have Zach Eflin, who has been mentioned in trade rumors this offseason, but it appears that he has a higher ceiling than Pivetta or Velasquez.

It's a good deal for Corbin and for the market, even if not all that surprising.

Fury and Wilder draw in spectacular heavyweight title clash
Regardless, Wilder-Fury II should take place in 2019 and it should happen immediately. " Tyson's eyes rolled in his head. Could a Joshua v Fury fight be next? "What he has been through in his personal life, to put in a performance like that".

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.

That rotation already had enough to be considered one of the better groups in baseball prior to the addition of Paxton, but what the Yankees were hoping to get in Corbin was a staff ace.

Basically, the Red Sox won (again) Thursday when Corbin reportedly agreed to sign with the Nationals because it kept him away from the Yankees (or another American League contender). Especially of a team in need of starting pitching.

Free-agents Happ and Eovaldi are both steps down in quality from Corbin, but they wouldn't require the six-year deal that Corbin desperately wanted. He had a 3.81 ERA in 111 innings and impressed during Boston's postseason run. For a team like the Phillies, who already made one big move this offseason, adding Keuchel to go with Nola and Arrieta would be a risky 1-2-3 combination in the National League.
