With Corbin, Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg, the Nationals should now have one of the best starting rotations in the National League and possibly all of baseball. Corbin, 29, went 11-7 with a 3.15 ERA in 33 starts with Arizona last season.
Some executives still considered the Nationals the favorites to re-sign Bryce Harper as of recently, but it will be interesting to see if the addition of Corbin means the star outfielder is headed elsewhere.
