MLB Trade Rumors: Phillies Acquire JT Realmuto From Marlins
09 February, 2019, 12:43
After months of speculation over what they'd do, the Marlins traded Realmuto on Thursday to the Philadelphia Phillies for catcher Jorge Alfaro, two pitching prospects and $250,000 in global signing bonus pool allocation. He reports that top Phillies pitching prospect Sixto Sanchez would join young backstop Jorge Alfaro as the two key pieces of the package.
If Giancarlo Stanton represented the Miami Marlins poor effort by way of reasonable return on value, catcher J.T. Realmuto symbolizes the exact opposite.
Craig Mish of MLB Network Radio on Sirius XM tweeted that he expects a deal to occur today, while MLB.com's Jon Morosi reported the growing momentum with the Philadelphia organization specifically.

The Marlins had been in discussions with numerous teams for Realmuto since the end of last season.
"We're talking about the best catcher in all of baseball, so of course he was popular", Hill said.
Alfaro is expected to replace Realmuto as Miami's starting catcher.
Sanchez in 48 games over four seasons in the minors is 15-12 with a 2.48 ERA with 191 strikeouts in 221 1/3 innings. The last player involved in the deal is a pitcher that took some time to develop but looks to be a back half of the rotation guy or someone that could be turned into a useful pen arm.
Hill said Sanchez would start out at Double A Jacksonville while Stewart will begin at Single A Jupiter.
He was also selected to his first All-Star game and won a Silver Slugger award.
