Per Fancred's Jon Heyman, it's six years, $140 million. Woof.

The NL East is loading up. The Nats have added Corbin, though this now probably closes the book on a reunion with Bryce Harper. Washington also signed Kurt Suzuki and traded for Yan Gomes and Kyle Barraclough.

Once the Mariners-Mets swap was completed, the Phillies traded for Jean Segura.

The Braves brought in Josh Donaldson and Brian McCann.
