Will Harris gets 3-year, $24 million deal with Nationals - HoustonChronicle.com

Free-agent reliever Will Harris is in agreement with the Washington Nationals on a three-year deal, removing one of the most valuable, consistent relievers from the back end of the Astros’ bullpen.

The signing ends a five-year Houston tenure that took Harris from a relatively unknown waiver claim to one of baseball’s most sought-after relievers. Multiple reports late Thursday put Harris’ deal with the Nationals at $24 million across three years — a remarkable contract for a soon-to-be 36-year-old reliever.

A position-by-position look at the free agent market

Patrick Corbin was an exception last offseason.

Amid a slow free agent market — some stars didn’t sign until after the start of spring training — Corbin’s search for a new home was over in December when he received a $140 million, six-year contract from Washington.

That worked out pretty well for both team and player. Corbin was a key part of the Nationals’ starting rotation this year, and he threw three scoreless innings in relief in Game 7 of the World Series, helping the team win its first World Series title.

Now, another offseason is in full swing. It’s hard to say whether teams will be more aggressive in pursuing free agents, hoping to land the next Corbin, but the Atlanta Braves already made a significant move, signing reliever Will Smith away from San Francisco.

A consideration of the free-agent market of the moment.
