Marlins ask for top prospect from Phillies for Realmuto

J.T. Realmuto Marlins ask for top prospect from Phillies for Realmuto

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 and Phillies finalized a deal on Thursday afternoon, The Post's Joel Sherman confirmed.

To put it into perspective for Reds fans, it was essentially the equivalent of sending Tucker Barnhart, Nick Senzel, and a Top 25 pitching prospect to the Marlins for two years of J.T. Realmuto's services. "This is about us getting better and we believe it improves us considerably".

If the Phillies were to include Sanchez, they could skyrocket to the top of the board for Miami because he is the best prospect now rumored to be included in offers for Realmuto. He hit.262 with 10 homers in his first full major league season past year and showed a strong arm, but had 11 errors and 10 passed balls. However, if Sanchez were to be included, on paper, the Phillies may have a better package.

Realmuto was in his second season of arbitration eligibility this winter. They bolstered their lineup earlier with the additions of shortstop Jean Segura and 2013 NL MVP Andrew McCutchen.

Scheduled to make $5.9 million this season, Realmuto wouldn't preclude the Phils from signing Bryce Harper or Manny Machado. The Phils are in on both of those mega free agents. The conventional wisdom is the Phillies will get one of them if they stay the course.

He mentions the upside being a 4th starter which would be a great get for a 3rd piece of the trade for Realmuto.

Then again, Realmuto, who turns 28 next month, is already a star. He won't be a free agent until after 2020.

Klentak added that the Phillies didn't request time to negotiate an extension with the slugging backstop prior to finalizing the transaction, per Lauber. "So I think the upgrade is pretty significant".

Realmuto is considered an excellent handler of pitchers.

"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".
