Sounds Like JT Realmuto is FINALLY Going to Be Traded

Sounds Like JT Realmuto is FINALLY Going to Be Traded”

Teams that wanted to have extension talks were told no by the Marlins, but it's expected that Realmuto will ask for a deal that reaches Yasmani Grandal's annual salary for 2019 by the 2nd or 3rd year of any extension talks.

The Miami Marlins on Thursday traded their All-Star catcher to the division rival Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for catcher Jorge Alfaro, highly regarded pitching prospects Sixto Sanchez and Will Stewart and worldwide bonus pool money.

He's the type of must-have catcher whom Harper identified last season as exactly what his Nationals needed.

"From our standpoint, that didn't play into the equation at all", Hill said.

"We did not have to trade J.T.", president of baseball operations Michael Hill said. According to multiple reports, the Phillies have acquired All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto from the Miami Marlins.

Many consider Realmuto the biggest name on the offseason trade market, and at least six teams reportedly inquired about trading for him since he rejected the Marlins' contract offer in October. He is signed at $5.9 million for this coming season and will be eligible for arbitration this time a year from now.

Realmuto has a career.279 batting average, 59 home runs and 243 RBI. Perhaps just as attractive to the Marlins: the earliest Alfaro can hit free agency is 2024. Last season, he appeared in 104 games behind the plate for the Phillies, hitting.262 with 10 home runs.

Philadelphia, still pursuing free agents Bryce Harper and Manny Machado, has bolstered its lineup with the additions of Realmuto, shortstop Jean Segura and 2013 NL MVP Andrew McCutchen. A rebuilding project for the perennial also-rans will probably continue for several years under CEO Derek Jeter, whose group bought the franchise after the 2017 season.

Sanchez in 48 games over four seasons in the minors is 15-12 with a 2.48 ERA with 191 strikeouts in 221 1/3 innings. Outfielders Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna as well as second baseman Dee Gordon were all shipped off before the start of the 2018 season.
