The Philadelphia Phillies and Miami Marlins are closing in on a trade that would send J.T. Realmuto to Philly while sending Jorge Alfaro and Sixto Sanchez to Miami.

A potential trade out of Miami has been rumored to be in the works for a while, with as many as 14 teams reportedly pursuing the talented catcher.

Adding Realmuto to the roster in Philly would be a huge move to boost the Phillies.


One of the best catchers in the game, the 27-year-old star hit .277 with 21 homers, 74 RBI and had a .340 OBP for Miami last season.
