MLB Rumors: Top Free Agent Patrick Corbin Agrees to Six-year Deal With Nationals

According to Jim Bowden of The Athletic, Patrick Corbin agreed to a six-year contract with the Nationals pending a physical.

The two-time All-Star granted free agency this offseason and drew interest from the Giants in Oct. who could have turned the 29-year-old from NL West opponent to teammate. While we know that's not going to happen now, Washington will be bolstering their rotation that already includes Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg.

Across six seasons with the D'backs, Corbin boasted a 3.91 ERA. Last season, he earned and All-Star selection and was even in Cy Young Award talks. No surprise there, he finished with an 11-7 record including 246 strikeouts in 200 innings.

The Yankees were also one of the main teams to consider Corbin, but according to Jon Heyman of Fancred, the team did not want to go six years with the lefty.
