According to Jim Bowden of The Athletic the Miami Marlins have agreed to trade catcher J.T. Realmuto to the Philadelphia Phillies in exchange for catcher Jorge Alfaro, Sixto Sánchez,  Will Stewart and an international bonus slot.

Realmuto has two years before he hits free agency. He hit .277/.344/.480 in 2018 with the Marlins.

Sanchez is the most well-regarded prospect in the deal, a 6-foot right-hander whose fastball sits in the high 90s and tops out over 100 mph. The 20-year-old missed a majority of the 2018 season with elbow inflammation. Alfaro, 25, is a power-hitting, cannon-armed catcher who will join a young group in Miami. Stewart, 21, excelled in Class A last season, going 8-1 with a 2.06 ERA in 20 starts.
