Patrick Corbin's time in the Valley appears to be over, as the left-handed pitcher will sign a six-year deal with the Washington Nationals, according to multiple reports Tuesday.
Corbin has played for the Arizona Diamondbacks since 2012 and was a two-time All-Star Game selection, in 2013 and '18. He posted a 3.15 ERA for the D-backs last year and was fifth in National League Cy Young voting.
A free agent, Corbin was expected to sign elsewhere after the 2018 season. MLB Network's Jon Morosi reported Corbin's deal with the Nationals is worth $140 million over six years. That would be the second-richest deal in Nationals history, behind another former Diamondbacks pitcher, Max Scherzer, who signed a $210 million deal over seven years in 2015.
The deal is pending a physical.
Hearing same as others: Corbin will agree to a six-year deal, pending a physical, likely above Darvish’s $126M guarantee with #Cubs a year ago.
