Marlins reportedly engaged in “substantive” J.T. Realmuto trade talks

Marlins reportedly engaged in “substantive” J.T. Realmuto trade talks Now that Yasmani Grandal has agreed to terms with the Brewers, the Marlins are ramping up trade talks surrounding J.T. Realmuto and are in “substantive discussions” with six teams, reports Joe Frisaro of MLB.com.

Marlins Reportedly Engaged In “Substantive” Realmuto Trade Talks . As one would expect, the report indicates that Miami’s asking price remains extremely high — at least one elite prospect and, in some cases, a big league catcher with some MLB experience already under his belt.

Realmuto from the Miami Marlins after signing free-agent outfielder A.J. Pollock on Thursday, according to USA TODAY's Bob Nightengale.

Trade talks between the two clubs are "intensive" and "ongoing," Nightengale adds.

The acquisition of Realmuto would add to what has already been a busy winter for the Dodgers. The team traded Yasiel Puig, Matt Kemp, and Alex Wood to the Cincinnati Reds in December.

Los Angeles also recently traded for veteran catcher Russell Martin after last year's starter, Yasmani Grandal, went to the Milwaukee Brewers in free agency.

Realmuto, 27, slashed .277/.340/.484 with 21 home runs in 2018, as he collected his first Silver Slugger Award and led all catchers in WAR (according to Fangraphs).
