Corbin signed a six-year, $140 Million deal with the Nats this past offseason, and he’s off to a solid start, posting a 3.58 ERA over 37.2 frames tossed, with 44 K’s. He’ll be facing a right-hand-heavy Phillies lineup:
Jake Arrieta, who struggled a bit in his last outing against the Miami Marlins, will attempt to return to his early-season form, as he faces a stripped-down version of the Nationals offense, which is without the key additions of guys like Anthony Rendon, Trea Turner, Ryan Zimmerman, and Juan Soto (who was added to the 10-Day IL earlier today.)
Those who are left standing will look to take on the imposing righty:

Tonight is a bit different, however, as the Phillies will honor a franchise great — shortstop Jimmy Rollins, as he officially retires in a Phillies uniform.
