MLB Trade Rumors: Phillies Acquire JT Realmuto From Marlins

Marlins Demanding Prospect From Phillies In J.T. Realmuto Trade

It will be interesting to see if the Dodgers are done making moves this offseason now that they couldn't land Realmuto, or if the front office still feels the club needs to make other upgrades, perhaps shifting their focus to free agents like Bryce Harper or Manny Machado.

"He throws 100 miles per hour", said Michael Hill, Marlins president of baseball operations. But it was only within the past week that the Phillies resurfaced, swooping in to acquire the much-coveted catcher. All reports indicate the trade will include top pitching prospect Sixto Sanchez.

The Marlins had been talking for months with numerous teams about a Realmuto trade before deciding to send him to their NL East counterparts. Pitchers are also confident they can throw balls in the dirt because they know Realmuto can block them. Electric stuff. Three pitch mix. "If that's what he does in our uniform, that's still the best catcher in baseball, but I'd be lying if I told you we didn't think there was some chance playing half his games in Citizens Bank Park wouldn't make him better".

Hill said Sanchez would start out at Double A Jacksonville while Stewart will begin at Single A Jupiter. He's spent all five major league seasons with the Marlins, who selected him in the third round of the 2010 draft. Plus, he isn't eligible for arbitration until next year and won't be a free agent until 2021.

Sanchez has struck out 191 batters while walking only 43 in 221 minor-league innings. Alfaro struck out in 40 percent of his at bats last season while walking just 18 times in 377 plate appearances. "The 20-year-old missed a majority of the 2018 season with elbow inflammation".

Miami's rebuilding project will probably continue for several years under CEO Derek Jeter, whose group bought the team after the 2017 season.

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

In the end, it was the Marlins who stood firm in their desires in a trade, What started out with as many as 12 teams looking to play "Let's Make A Deal" the demand of Major League Baseball players prospects appeared to be too high for one player.

Having already settled with the Marlins, Realmuto is set to make $5.9 million in 2019. He smashed 21 home runs to go along with 74 runs batted in and a.277 average.

Needless to say, after seeing the All-Star trio of Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich, and Marcell Ozuna unceremoniously disposed of with little to speak of in return, Marlins fans (yes, a few of us actually exist) were a little non-plussed.
