AP source: Corbin to Nationals for 6 years, pending physical

By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — A person familiar with the deal says All-Star pitcher Patrick Corbin has agreed to a six-year contract with the Washington Nationals, pending a physical exam.

The person confirmed the length of the agreement to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity on Tuesday because nothing had been announced by the team.

The left-handed Corbin, who left the Arizona Diamondbacks, joins a Nationals starting rotation that already includes three-time Cy Young Award winner Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg.

The 29-year-old Corbin is coming off his best season in the majors, going 11-7 with a 3.15 ERA while pitching 200 innings for the second time in his career. He was considered the top starter available in an elite free-agent class that includes right fielder Bryce Harper, the 2012 NL Rookie of the Year and 2015 NL MVP for the Nationals.
