Though the Yankees reportedly were unwilling to go beyond five years for Corbin, they're still looking for some pitching help and are now going to focus on Nathan Eovaldi and JA Happ, according to MLB Network's Jon Morosi. It's possible that an outside team could enter the fray, but one of those clubs will likely land the best pitcher on the market in the coming days. If his source is correct, this would rule the Philadelphia Phillies out of the Corbin sweepstakes. Corbin's slider, in particular, causes lefty hitters a lot of trouble given his release point and devastating break and should allow him to pitch well throughout his contract.
Philadelphia might be willing to give Corbin his biggest offer since the team is seemingly ready to outspend everyone this winter. The Yankees won 18 more games than the Nationals last season and finished 20 games ahead of the Phillies in the overall Major League Baseball standings. They wanted him, and he and his friends and family made no secret of the fact they wanted a homecoming of sorts. There has been speculation that Corbin will sign with the Yankees for less money to play for the team he grew up rooting for.

Comparatively, National League Cy Young award victor Jacob deGrom and Trevor Bauer were the only two players to rank above Corbin in the FIP category. deGrom had a phenomenal 1.99 FIP and Bauer had a solid 2.44 FIP. He had a 3.81 ERA in 111 innings and impressed during Boston's postseason run.
Corbin went 14-13 with a 4.03 ERA and a 1.42 ERA in 2017. Corbin would provide the Phillies with another ace that would slide in right behind Aaron Nola, as well as giving the rotation a much-needed left-handed pitcher.
