Nationals Player Profile: Patrick Corbin, #46

Patrick Corbin, starting pitcher

Patrick Corbin signed a six year, $140 million contract with the Washington Nationals in December of 2018.

The 29-year old had spent his six-year major league career with the Arizona Diamondbacks, earning two trips to the All-Star game (2013, 2018). In 2014, the left-handed starter underwent Tommy John surgery, only returning to the Diamondbacks in the second half of 2015.

After two solid seasons in '16 and '17, Corbin brokeout this last year, posting an 11-7 record with a 3.15 ERA.

Highly recruited by both the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies after declaring his free agency in October, the native New Yorker signed with Washington in early December.

Citing an instant connection with the Nationals' staff, Corbin joins three-time Cy Young winner, Max Scherzer, and three-time All-Star, Stephen Strasburg, on a starting staff now boasting three $100 million contracts.

With Corbin's signing, the Nationals can now legitimately claim the toughest rotation in baseball.
