Marlins Trade J.T. Realmuto To Phillies After Offseason Full Of Rumors

  • J.T. Realmuto as a Phillie is tempting but the price is too high | Extra Innings

Even as the Harper and Machado sweepstakes lurch into their fourth months - with numerous usual, big-money suspects (Los Angeles Dodgers, New York Yankees, Chicago Cubs) apparently taking a pass, and the void filled with some dark horses and mystery teams (Chicago White Sox, San Diego Padres, San Francisco Giants) - much of the industry takes it as an inevitability that the Phillies will walk away with one of them. That was part of the plan Michael Hill, president of baseball operations for the organization, spoke about at the Baseball Winter Meetings in Las Vegas last month.

Putting Alfaro in the deal made sense, and demanding Sanchez fits with Miami's timescale to try and contend. Stewart is an intriguing pitcher after his solid 2018.

While the Braves were believed by many to still be a frontrunner throughout this process, the Phillies were able to offer their top minor league prospect in the deal, which pushed them to the front of the line. According to multiple reports, the Phillies have acquired All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto from the Miami Marlins.

"I think this is another acquisition for our club this offseason that demonstrates our commitment to winning, and I would hope that demonstration would be appealing to potential free agents". "So there's going to be inherent risk with everyone who throws the ball". Electric stuff. Three pitch mix. He's expected to start this year in Double-A, and Stewart will begin in Single-A. It was the best year yet for a player who has been one of the better hitting backstops in the league for the past three seasons. He smashed 21 home runs to go along with 74 runs batted in and a.277 average. They gave up, arguably, the best catcher in baseball but they are acquiring exacting what a team rebuilding needs to be acquiring: A future ACE!

The elbow inflammation that limited Sanchez's innings clearly did not bother Miami. Alfaro struck out in 40 percent of his at bats last season while walking just 18 times in 377 plate appearances.

Realmuto, 27, just finished his fourth full Major League season and still has two more years of team control before being eligible for free agency.

The Marlins also received $250,000 in bonus pool money that they can use to sign global players.

Having already settled with the Marlins, Realmuto is set to make $5.9 million in 2019.

Given the nature of Derek Jeter's "plan" to build from the ground up, this could be considered a long-term success for the Marlins. 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.
