Yankees reportedly looking to Nathan Eovaldi, JA Happ

J.A. Happ Philadelphia Phillies MLB

High quality left-handed starting pitchers are tough to come by, but NY will now have to look elsewhere as they continue attempts to reinforce their pitching staff. The 28-year-old missed all of 2017 due to Tommy John surgery.

The Bombers reset their luxury tax threshold, so they have a ton of money to spend this offseason, which is a bit contradicting since they didn't up the ante to sign Corbin - shying away from his desired six-year contract.

Southpaw starter Patrick Corbin, who had grown up a Yankees fan and was coming off a career season with the Arizona Diamondbacks, opted to take a six-year, $140 million deal with the Washington Nationals rather than sign with his hometown team. That topped the Yankees' offer by a dozen months and $40 million.

In Corbin, the Nationals added arguably the most sought-after free-agent starting pitcher on the market this offseason. "Those are things that define playing hard a little more to me".

That rotation already had enough to be considered one of the better groups in baseball prior to the addition of Paxton, but what the Yankees were hoping to get in Corbin was a staff ace. Some have speculated that Harper and Machado could both fetch deals close to $300 million in total value.

Last month, the Yankees and Cleveland Indians entered talks about a possible trade involving star pitcher Corey Kluber.

With Patrick Corbin out of the picture now for their 2019 rotation, the Yankees will set their targets on two known commodities to them - J.A. Happ and Nathan Eovaldi.

The signing of Corbin - who had drawn interest from the New York Yankees and Philadelphia Phillies, among other clubs, and was expected to draw offers of at least $20 million a year - could be a signal that the Nationals are moving on from Harper.

Corbin also ranked third in home runs allowed per nine innings pitched (0.68), sixth in strikeouts per nine innings pitched (11.07), and thirteenth in base on balls per nine innings pitched (2.16).
