It must be nice to be free-agent pitcher Nathan Eovaldi right now.

There are big names available that the Yankees could add, though it's unknown exactly how much interest NY has in doing so.

Wanzhou Meng has reportedly been arrested by Chinese authorities on suspicion of violating the US's trade sanctions on Iran. Separately, the BBC reported that British telco BT would not use Huawei's equipment in its 5G mobile network.


However, this is the first report that seems to signal Philadelphia may be in front of the listed teams in regards to the chances of signing the two-time All-Star, as well as news that they aren't afraid to outspend any other potential suitor.

Along with the Phillies, the New York Mets have expressed interest in Happ, while the Yankees still have a shot to re-sign him.

With the Winter Meetings coming next week and numerous offseason milestones behind us, the free agent logjam was destined to break at any second, and perhaps it just has: Patrick Corbin is reportedly signing with the Washington Nationals. Or, could Cincinnati go a little cheaper with Eovaldi for maybe 3 years at $50 million? He had a 3.81 ERA in 22 games last season after missing all of 2017 with Tommy John Surgery. Strasburg is averaging less than 25 starts per season over the last four years. Entering this offseason, the Sox have payroll flexibility and can add some quality free agents to the team.

Though, one other major question remains here. Instead, they missed out on Corbin over a sixth year - a sixth year beyond the current Collective Bargaining Agreement - after spending the offseason saying they need rotation help. Bumgarner has really made a name for himself in the postseason, posting an impressive 2.11 ERA in 16 games, helping the Giants win three World Series.

This year, Rodgers hurt his left knee in the season opener, though he is feeling better now. Rodgers attempted 50 passes but completed only 31 of them for 233 yards and a touchdown.


Fans may not have to wait much longer for news of Corbin's signing, either, as Fancred's Jon Heyman reported that Corbin's decision is "expected to come soon". According to the general consensus, the Yankees, having already picked up James Paxton in trade, were sticking to five years for Corbin and wouldn't budge. For a team like the Phillies, who already made one big move this offseason, adding Keuchel to go with Nola and Arrieta would be a risky 1-2-3 combination in the National League.
