Marlins Trade J.T. Realmuto To Phillies After Offseason Full Of Rumors

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

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. "A pitcher who we think can develop and lead a championship rotation", Hill said.

The reason for that is that the Marlins asking price has been extremely high, mainly because they are unhappy with the returns they got for the other stars they traded a year ago like Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna.

Realmuto became a National League all-star for the first time last season. "From our standpoint, we felt like we added two frontline starting pitcher to add to the layers of starting pitching that we've been able to build over the last 18 months". He won't be eligible for free agency until 2024.

Over 143 games with the Phillies, Alfaro slashed.270/.327/.422 with 15 homers, 51 RBI, and 47 runs scored. He hit.262 with 10 homers in his first full major league season a year ago. His major drawback as a hitter is his high strikeout rate.

"We've heard nothing but outstanding things about J.T. Realmuto and his worth ethic and his makeup and his leadership, the type of teammate he is", Klentak said.

The verbal sparring has only intensified since with Salvini calling Macron a "terrible president" last month in a Facebook video. February 2019: France recalls its ambassador to Italy, accusing Rome of "repeated accusations" and "unfounded attacks".

Realmuto, who turns 28 in March, had been with the Marlins longer than any other current player.

Hill said trading Realmuto to a team within the same division was never a concern. Sherman says the outlook for the deal still looks good - indeed, Sanchez's medicals are already under review in Miami - but there's haggling left to go. The 27-year-old hit.277 last year, with 21 home runs and 74 runs batted in.

Klentak said he first inquired about Realmuto last summer and again early in the offseason. He is due to make $5.9 million this coming season, money the Marlins might now apply toward acquiring more players.

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

Realmuto was in his second season of arbitration eligibility this winter.
