Yankees Turn To J.A. Happ And Nathan Eovaldi Following Corbin Miss

The Nationals have signed all-star pitcher Patrick Corbin to a six-year deal worth more than $126 million, according to multiple reports.

On his way to a sensational season as both a pitcher and outfielder, Ohtani suffered an elbow injury that limited him to 10 starts and 104 games overall and required Tommy John surgery. As is often the case, far too much was made of his hometown (Clay, New York) and the fact he grew up a Yankees fan in a family full of Yankees fans. After acquiring James Paxton, the Yanks considered Corbin a luxury rather than an essential.

With the Winter Meetings coming next week and numerous offseason milestones behind us, the free agent logjam was destined to break at any second, and perhaps it just has: Patrick Corbin is reportedly signing with the Washington Nationals. That topped the Yankees' offer by a dozen months and $40 million.

With starting pitcher still a top priority for the Yankees despite acquiring James Paxton from the Seattle Mariners earlier this offseason, a similar situation past year could offer a bit of insight as to what the franchise might do next. That said, there is an expectation that we have and hopefully as a professional that there is a certain way you go about things, and running balls out can certainly play into that. My definition of a player who plays hard, who plays through adversity and is tough and brings things behind the scenes and has the ability to post when it is not easy.

For the Yankees, that means shifting their focus to a pair of familiar faces in Nathan Eovaldi and J.A. Happ, Jon Morosi of MLB.com tweets. Happ had a 3.18 ERA in 2016 and a 3.53 ERA in 2017. Happ and Eovaldi essentially represent a backup plan. The Yankees have reportedly spoken with the Cleveland Indians about a potential trade for Corey Kluber or Carlos Carrasco.

The Yankees reportedly offered a five-year, $110 million deal to Corbin; however, they wouldn't increase their offer, and I'm glad they didn't. He went 23-11 with an ERA over 4.00 in 48 starts.
