MLB Trade Rumors: Phillies Acquire JT Realmuto From Marlins
So it would behoove the Phillies to try to sign him to a long-term deal this offseason, as opposed to next, when it may cost even more to secure him past the 2020 season.
The Phillies and Marlins have reached a trade that sends All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto to Philadelphia for catcher Jorge Alfaro, pitching prospects Sixto Sanchez and Will Stewart, and an worldwide bonus slot, the teams announced Thursday.
The Phillies jumped into the Realmuto sweepstakes later than other teams in the race, but obviously they ended up being the most aggressive, as their trade package included the best prospect in their minor league system. "In any trade that we've ever made, we always focus on our return and what's best for the Miami Marlins". According to multiple reports, the Phillies have acquired All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto from the Miami Marlins. The loss of Sanchez stings, but you have to give something to get something (see story). He hit.262 with 10 homers in his first full major league season a year ago and showed a strong arm, but had 11 errors and 10 passed balls. It is a sound move, especially for an improving team that hasn't been to the postseason since 2011 and needs to make the town crackle with baseball excitement again.
Realmuto was in his second season of arbitration eligibility this winter.
The Phillies have been busy this offseason, adding Andrew McCutchen, David Robertson and Jean Segura in addition to Realmuto. He won't be eligible for free agency until 2024.
The Nationals did not get Realmuto.
"I think it's a good idea to date the person before you ask to marry them", Klentak said.
Realmuto, who turns 28 in March, had been with the Marlins longer than any other current player. "I think the upgrade is pretty significant".
Jehovah’s Witness member jailed for extremism
Almost 100 members of the group face charges in Russian Federation , and more than 20 of them are in jail awaiting trial. Christiansen's detention, Russia's first extremism-related arrest of a Jehovah's Witness, foreshadowed dozens more.
Realmuto is considered an excellent handler of pitchers. "He will have a really big impact on our group".
Klentak also his defense and impact on the clubhouse are also a plus.
Last season, Realmuto hit.277 with a career-high 74 RBIs and 21 home runs.
Klentak believes getting out of cavernous Marlins Park will help those numbers. His road OPS last season was.870, compared to.773 at home. The last player involved in the deal is a pitcher that took some time to develop but looks to be a back half of the rotation guy or someone that could be turned into a useful pen arm.
