MLB Trade Rumors: Phillies Acquire JT Realmuto From Marlins

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

Marlins send Realumuto for Sixto Sanchez, Jorge Alfaro, Will Stewart and $250k global bonus money! By the skin of his teeth, Berry was right, as the Philadelphia Phillies acquired his client on February 7, five days before Marlins pitchers and catchers were due to report to Jupiter, Florida for Spring Training. Philadelphia was nearing the finish line in a deal with the Marlins for catcher J.T. Realmuto - the most valuable backstop in baseball.

The Philadelphia Phillies pulled off a blockbuster deal on Thursday. Despite Miami's sickly lineup around him - the Marlins were far and away the lowest-scoring team in baseball - Realmuto scored 74 runs and knocked in 74, despite a modest 125 games played. Last fall his agent, Jeff Berry, said Realmuto informed the Marlins he wouldn't sign a long-term contract with them and predicted a trade.

Frustration grows as migrant caravan stuck in Mexico shelter
When Trump discussed El Paso's past, he sounded like he was describing Ciudad Juarez across the border in Northern Mexico. These migrants are camped near Eagle Pass, Texas at an unused maquiladora in the Mexican city of Piedra Negras.


In this age of teardowns and tanking, with a dozen or more teams essentially sitting out this winter's high-end talent market, to have four teams with designs on a title within the same division, and to see each of them moving aggressively to achieve it, is extraordinary. The 20-year-old right-hander had been considered the Phillies' top pitching prospect for his power arm and uncanny control, but he was limited to just eight starts at the Class A level last season because of an elbow injury and there is some thought in the scouting community that he may one day end up in the bullpen.

"He throws 100 miles per hour", said Michael Hill, Marlins president of baseball operations. "A pitcher who we think can develop and lead a championship rotation", Hill said.

Storm Erik hits Scotland with 70mph gusts and power cuts
Storm Erik is set to bring strong gusts and heavy rain to the United Kingdom , as the weekend gets off to a wet and windy start. The weather would result in some "quite nasty travelling conditions", said Sarah Kent, a Met Office meteorologist.


Miami's rebuilding project will probably continue for several years under CEO Derek Jeter, whose group bought the team after the 2017 season. Defensively, Realmuto committed just seven errors in 879 chances behind the plate for a.992 fielding mark and threw out 25 of 53 players attempting to steal a base (32 percent). The Phils are in on both of those mega free agents. Alfaro hit.262 with 10 home runs in 108 games last season. I think he was critical in the trade as he can step right into the catcher's spot and while there will be a drop off from Realmuto it will be manageable having a seasoned player who is capable of producing.
