Update on J.T. Realmuto

The Miami Marlins traded C J.T. Realmuto to the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for an international bonus slot, RHP Sixto Sanchez, C Jorge Alfaro, and LHP Will Stewart.

With less than a few days away from 2019 Spring Training, the Philadelphia Phillies could be on the verge of trading one of the best catchers on the trade block.

As of Wednesday, February 7, 2019

According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network and FanRag Sports, the Phillies are in the driver’s seat to acquire Catcher J.T. Realmuto from the Miami Marlins. Heyman also said that Phillies Catcher Jorge Alfaro and RHP Sixto Sanchez are likely to go to Miami in the proposed deal. Those sources are also saying that the Marlins are asking for additional players like the following: 3B Alec Bohm, OF Adam Haseley, OF Mickey Moniak, and RHP Adonis Media. However, the Phillies would not commit to include Haseley nor Bohm in the proposed deal. Fortunately, Heyman reported that SS Luis Garcia and RHP Spencer Howard could be traded to Miami as part of the J.T. Realmuto package.

With all these details said, there is a possibility that the J.T. Realmuto trade gets done sooner rather than later. As a matter of fact, the trade could be finalized as soon as Thursday. Realmuto is coming off a career year in 2018 as MLB named him to the All-Star Game and awarded him with a Silver Slugger.
