The Yankees like pending free agent LHP Patrick Corbin, according to SNY's Andy Martino. And if they pursue him, they could be joined by the Dodgers, Giants, and Braves -- who are expected to "show a lot of interest" -- according to Nick Cafardo of the Boston Globe.
Corbin, who grew up a Yankees fan and has spoken glowingly on numerous occasions about his desire to don pinstripes, could get a five or six-year deal worth more than $100 million, notes Martino.
The 29-year-old Corbin had a 3.15 ERA and 1.05 WHIP with a career-high 246 strikeouts (while striking out a career-high 11.1 per 9) in a career-high 200 innings (33 starts) this season for the Diamondbacks.
During his six-year career -- all spent with the Diamondbacks -- Corbin has a 3.91 ERA and 1.28 WHIP in 945.2 innings.
Along with Corbin, some of the pending free agent starting pitchers expected to draw lots of interest are Dallas Keuchel and Nathan Eovaldi.
Aside from Luis Severino and Masahiro Tanaka, the Yankees' starting rotation for 2019 is unsettled. J.A. Happ, CC Sabathia and Lance Lynn are all free agents, and Sonny Gray is under team control for 2019 but someone GM Brian Cashman is actively trying to trade.
