Per Andy Martino of SNY, the Nationals, Phillies, and Yankees are all vying for free agent starter Patrick Corbin, with rivals viewing the Phillies as being in a "strong position" to ultimately sign the two-time All-Star.

However, if the Phillies were to sign Happ, he would be a nice fill in as a solid third option in the starting rotation behind ace Aaron Nola and former N.L. Cy Young victor Jake Arrieta.

Adding a left-handed pitcher is one of the many things on Matt Klentak's to do list this offseason, and he's been vocal about making this move after the organization went almost two seasons without a start from a lefty.

Corbin was named an All-Star last season as a member of the Diamondbacks.

Per MLB.com's Jamal Collier, Corbin's deal with worth six years and $140 million. While his potential has always been known, Corbin missed the entire 2014 season and part of the 2015 season due to Tommy John surgery.

Patrick Corbin #46 of the Arizona Diamondbacks delivers a pitch in the first inning of the Major League Baseball game against the San Francisco Giants at Chase Field on August 3, 2018 in Phoenix, Arizona. Surely the Sox need a starting pitcher that can pitch 200 innings as Corbin did in 2018. 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. Jon Heyman of Fancred reported on Monday that the Phillies will consider Dallas Keuchel. Join the Southside Showdown team! The Nationals are a fine team but a team that will likely begin their 2019 season without franchise face Bryce Harper - despite the Nationals being one of the most active teams this off-season. Veteran J.A. Happ, who posted a 2.69 ERA in 11 starts for the Yankees last season, and Nathan Evoladi, whose stock has never been higher after tossing fastball in the triple digits while on his way to winning a World Series with Boston last season. Nightengale said other teams eyeing Corbin are also aware of the bidding war they could potentially get into with Philadelphia.
