The biggest news of yesterday was that Patrick Corbin signed with the Washington Nationals for 6 years. With Alex Smith and Colt McCoy done for the year, Washington really will sign any hurler who isn’t Colin Kaepernick. The Phillies and Yankees were also interested in not-Kaepernick, but only for 5 years.
That’s the biggest news that materialized, but in things that probably won’t materialize, the Reds are interested in Corey Kluber and Trevor Bauer. Get outta here, Cincy.
