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

Adjust Comment Print

Along with the Phillies, the New York Mets have expressed interest in Happ, while the Yankees still have a shot to re-sign him. Eovaldi went 14-3 with NY in 2015 before undergoing Tommy John a year later and missing the entire 2017 season.

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. The Syracuse native made it no secret he would have liked to pitch for the Yankees, but instead opted for the Nationals, who are giving him $140 million over six years.

Patrick Corbin was the No. 1 starter available on the market this offseason. Especially a pitcher with a history of injury.

Dawson has always maintained his innocence, and claimed his wife had run away to live with a religious cult in remote area of NSW. The former school teacher appeared in Southport Magistrates Court on Wednesday where his application for bail was refused.

Like Stephen Strasburg, Corbin had Tommy John surgery earlier in his career, missing the entire 2014 season.

Dallas Keuchel could be a solid option for the Sox to sign. While the average annual salary will be watered down thanks to deferrals, he managed to top Yu Darvish's contract from last offseason (6/$129 million). You'd have to think that Keuchel could get in the neighborhood of $20 million per season. Or, could Cincinnati go a little cheaper with Eovaldi for maybe 3 years at $50 million? 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.

Happ's best season with the Phillies came in 2009 when they went back to the World Series and faced off against the New York Yankees.

Reif will use the report to guide his decisions about the relationship between MIT and Saudi Arabia going forward. So far, President Trump has given the Saudi crown prince the benefit of the doubt about his role in the incident.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale also reported that the Phillies have told Corbin they will not be "out-bid" by any other team interested in his services, a bold declaration that signals the Phillies are living up to the aggressive label they've been carrying the past month.

What is surprising, however, is that Corbin is not heading to NY, as many had speculated. Reds fans are dying for their team to make a splash in free agency and land a top-notch starter.

As a result of the signing, the Washington Nationals are set to lose a second and fifth-round selection during this summer's Amateur Draft (via MLBTR).

His departure further mixes up an offensive line that was going with its eighth combination of starters this season in that game. Some were criticizing their effort, but they went into cold, snowy Lambeau Field and won there for the first time in nine tries.
