Jon Heyman says that free agent Patrick Corbin is expected to make a decision soon on where to sign. Heyman isn’t the first to say this either, as there were rumblings about Corbin making a quick decision over the weekend as well.

Corbin recently completed a tour with East Coast clubs, including visits with the Yankees, Nationals, and Phillies, who are the three teams Heyman says are the favorites. Mystery teams are always lurking, of course.

Corbin turned in a career high in strikeouts and walked just 48 in 200 innings in 2018. He’ll turn 30 next summer, which is, these days, fairly young for a free agent starter. He’ll get a pretty hefty deal no matter where he signs.
