All-Star J.T. Realmuto traded from Marlins to Philadelphia for 3 players

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

Last year, when the Washington Nationals were looking to acquire a catcher before the trade deadline, Harper jokingly put his cap on Realmuto's head during pregame introductions at the All-Star Game.

"From our standpoint, that didn't play into the equation at all", Hill said.

Realmuto finally being traded will have trickle-down impacts across the competitive spectrum, from improving the Phillies in the NL race, to pushing them perhaps to be even more aggressive on Bryce Harper/Manny Machado.

The Phils were able to make a major upgrade without parting with a top prospect Sanchez is a promising prospect, but he has been recovering from an elbow injury and has yet to pitch above Single-A. He hit.277 and set career highs with 21 homers, 74 RBIs and an OPS of.825. Alfaro won't be eligible for arbitration until the 2021 season and has five years of team control remaining.

Realmuto, an All-Star catcher, was the final piece of real major league value brought over from the previous regime for Jeter & Co.to trade as they tear it down before they hope to build it up. "We have every reason to believe he is exactly the type of player that we want representing the Philadelphia Phillies". Alfaro hit.262 with 10 home runs in 108 games last season. Stewart, 21, excelled in Class A last season, going 8-1 with a 2.06 ERA in 20 starts. Alfaro struck out in 40 percent of his at bats last season while walking just 18 times in 377 plate appearances.

"I've received so many calls and texts in the last couple of hours since the news broke of this from people who have been around Realmuto talking about how much pitchers love throwing to him", Klentak said, "how much confidence they have to throw a ball in the dirt because they know he'll block it". Teams that wanted to have extension talks were told no by the Marlins, but it's expected that Realmuto will ask for a deal that reaches Yasmani Grandal's annual salary for 2019 by the 2nd or 3rd year of any extension talks. "A pitcher who we think can develop and lead a championship rotation", Hill said.
