Former Yankees catcher Jorge Posada will be reunited with Derek Jeter in 2019, but not in pinstripes. Posada is expected to join the Marlins organization as a "special advisor to Baseball Operations," according to Sirius XM's Craig Mish. Jeter is Miami's CEO and part owner.

Posada and Jeter made up half of New York's "core four" through the 1990's and 2000's. The pair played together for 16 seasons from 1996-2011 and won five World Series and seven American League titles. Posada is a five-time All-Star with 275 career homers.

Sources: Phillies continue to improve roster by trading for J.T. Realmuto

Sources: Phillies continue to improve roster by trading for J.T. Realmuto Left behind a year ago when his Miami Marlins shipped out a good portion of a talented if thin roster, when small and later became the new standard, Realmuto endured what most saw coming – a last-place finish and cratering attendance, but a new paint job. The Marlins may one day rise up in Derek Jeter’s image. In the meantime, they remain the Marlins, usually on their way to one thing or another and hardly ever getting there, and no longer Realmuto’s problem.

Jeter is one of the most decorated Yankees of all-time. He tallied 14 All-Star appearances with New York, finishing in the top-ten of AL MVP voting eight times.

New York's legendary shortstop headlined an ownership group that bought the Marlins in 2017. Miami finished last in the NL East in 2018 at 63–98. The franchise last reached the postseason in 2003.

Report: Luis Severino, Yankees talking contract extension.
The Philadelphia Phillies were able to take care of starting pitcher Aaron Nola before the two sides ended up in an arbitration hearing, and it sounds like the New York Yankees are hoping to do the same with Luis Severino. Severino has an arbitration hearing set for later this month, but Jon Heyman of Fancred reports that he has had ongoing discussions with the Yankees about a contract extension. Yankees and Luis Severino have had extension talks, as well, but no word they are close yet. Sevy’s scheduled arb hearing has yet to be heard.
