The Phillies have scouted Kikuchi and they like him.

From the Syracuse area in NY, the left-handed starter grew up a fan in a Yankees household and attended Cicero-North Syracuse High School.

USA Today's Bob Nightengale reported on Tuesday morning that Corbin's contract will be at least six years for at least $125 million. That number could go up depending on the bidding that occurs.

The New York Yankees, among others, are awaiting a decision from free-agent left-handed pitcher Patrick Corbin.

Although, according to Jon Heyman of Fancred, two other teams are still in the mix to land the 29-year-old left-hander. Whether the Yankees would be willing to add on another year to their offer remains to be seen, but for their sake let's hope he's fine with just six years for around $130 million.

The Phillies have had their eyes on Corbin since the start of the offseason.

NY was reportedly unwilling to offer Corbin a six-year deal, which was a deal breaker for the former Diamondbacks star. ESPN's Buster Olney reports that the southpaw is likely to receive the biggest pitching contract of the offseason. Keuchel, a two-time All-Star and four-time Gold Glove victor, hasn't been as dominant since winning the 2015 AL Cy Young Award, but he led the AL in starts last season and has turned in a sub-4.00 ERA in four of the past five seasons.

Comparatively, National League Cy Young award victor Jacob deGrom and Trevor Bauer were the only two players to rank above Corbin in the FIP category. deGrom had a phenomenal 1.99 FIP and Bauer had a solid 2.44 FIP.

Washington spending a boatload of money on Corbin may reduce their chances of signing Harper.

In addition to the agreement with Corbin, the Nationals already have added two catchers - Yan Gomes via trade, Kurt Suzuki in free agency - and two back-end-of-the-bullpen relievers - Kyle Barraclough via trade, Trevor Rosenthal in free agency.
