MLB Trade Rumors: Phillies Acquire JT Realmuto From Marlins

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

They were initially said to be targeting a move for Machado whom they met at Citizens Bank Park during his three-city tour in December, but their focus is now said to have shifted toward right-fielder Harper after their face-to-face meeting with him in January.

"He throws 100 miles per hour", said Michael Hill, Marlins president of baseball operations.

And to give Phillies fans even more to dream about.

Phillies general manager Matt Klentak was delighted to have landed "the best catcher in baseball", telling reporters via a conference call, as quoted on MLB.com: "I think the upgrade is pretty significant".

Alfaro, in three seasons with the Phillies, has hit.270 with 15 home runs.

Realmuto is considered one of the best catcher in the Major League Baseball at the moment and was put up for trade since the offseason began in 2018.

Realmuto had been with the Marlins longer than any other current player.

The trade of Realmuto has other significance in that it represents the final "core" piece to the organization from the Jeffrey Loria-led ownership of the franchise.

Pompeo "underscored the central importance of ensuring the centrality of the Afghan government in the peace process", Ghani said.

Alfaro satisfies the Marlins' reported desire to land an MLB-ready catcher in any Realmuto trade.

Nothing wrong with taking a shot, but teams rarely overpay under any circumstances anymore, not in free agency, not in trades.

At Prospects1500 he is ranked as a Tier 1 player meaning: Players with high expectations of both making the majors and playing at an All-Star level for a number of years. All four National League East teams showed interest in Realmuto at some point over the past year.

Miami reportedly received $250,000 in global bonus pool money as part of the trade, according to Joel Sherman of the New York Post.

"From our standpoint, that didn't play into the equation at all", Hill said. Let's take a look at how this deal affects Miami's core and dynasty owners as well. He hit.277 and set career highs with 21 homers, 74 RBIs and an OPS of.825.

Realmuto has a career.279 batting average, 59 home runs and 243 RBI. Defensively, Realmuto committed just seven errors in 879 chances behind the plate for a.992 fielding mark and threw out 25 of 53 players attempting to steal a base (32 percent).

Miami's rebuilding project will probably continue for several years under CEO Derek Jeter, whose group bought the team after the 2017 season. He will make $5.9 million in 2019, and he can become a free agent after the 2020 season. During that period, the club has traded away Giancarlo Stanton and Christian Yelich - winners of the last two NL MVP awards - and outfielder Marcell Ozuna.
