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

That was, until, on Thursday when Miami sent Realmuto the Philadelphia Phillies for catcher Jorge Alfaro, pitching prospects Sixto Sanchez and Will Stewart, and an worldwide bonus slot.

The Marlins had been in discussions with numerous teams for Realmuto since the end of last season. The Phillies weren't an offensive party by any means - 22nd in runs - but they did score 88 more runs than Miami. With spring training opening next week for teams across the majors, trade talks intensified.

Pitcher Sixto Sanchez, catcher Jorge Alfaro and left-hander Will Stewart will be heading to Miami along with worldwide slot money. Sanchez ranks No. 13 on Baseball America's list of top prospects; No. 27 on MLB Pipeline.

The Reds offered high-profile minor leaguers.

With Realmuto no longer available, the Dodgers seem poised to go into Spring Training with Russell Martin and Austin Barnes as their primary catchers.

"It's the same as Realmuto's arm", the scout said. The Marlins, well, they're the laughingstock of baseball, years away from relevance. Pitchers are also confident they can throw balls in the dirt because they know Realmuto can block them. "But when it was all said and done, we were comfortable with his medical and couldn't be happier to add that talent to our pitching stable". He's expected to start this year in Double-A, and Stewart will begin in Single-A.

If you read the first paragraph of the Taliban's Moscow statement & think Taliban 2.0 is softer & cuddlier, read on. Trump offered no specifics about when he would bring home the 14,000 US troops now in Afghanistan.

"In Sanchez we saw a front-of-the-rotation starter", Hill said. "Similarly, we feel that Will Stewart can do so from the left side". 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 slugged 28 extra base hits, 10 home runs, totaling 140 total bases in 2018.

Nothing wrong with taking a shot, but teams rarely overpay under any circumstances anymore, not in free agency, not in trades. His major drawback as a hitter is his high strikeout rate. But he also struck out 138 times in 377 at-bats. Alfaro won't be eligible for arbitration until the 2021 season and has five years of team control remaining.

"He's been playing half his game in Miami", Klentak said.

Miami made Sanchez a necessity for a deal to get done.

Here's the issue: Sanchez experienced elbow inflammation parts of the last two seasons and was forced to skip the Arizona Fall League after soreness in his collarbone set in.

Realmuto has been a Top 5 fantasy catcher for three years running, and he jumped to the No. 1 spot last year (.277/.340/.484, 21 homers). Realmuto over his career has a.848 slugging percentage on the road and.678 at home. Miami, under the new ownership of Derek Jeter and Bruce Sherman, created a firestorm of controversy by trading Dee Gordon, Giancarlo Stanton, Marcell Ozuna and Christian Yelich last offseason.
