The Patrick Corbin tour across the east coast continued Thursday with a visit to Yankee Stadium. The New York Yankees decided to imitate the Philadelphia Phillies and put up a graphic of Corbin in their uniform on the scoreboard.

While Corbin met with the Phillies and Washington Nationals earlier this week, the Yankees have made him their top priority in terms of signing a free agent. Putting up an image of him in the famous Yankee pinstripes is a good start to their attempts to woo him in New York.
Additionally, Corbin isn't necessarily a top priority for the other teams he's met with so far.
While Patrick Corbin is in town visiting the Phillies, two sources say LH reliever Andrew Miller is at the top of their pitching wishlist as well. Both @jonmorosi and @JSalisburyNBCS have mentioned Miller.— Matt Gelb (@MattGelb) November 27, 2018
While it's still early in the off-season and a lot can happen, it wouldn't be surprising to see Corbin sign with the Yankees. However, things can certainly change in a heartbeat.
For now though, the Yankees are doing everything in their power (other than possibly make an offer) to make sure Corbin is wearing Yankee pinstripes in 2019.
