The Marlins have spent the entire offseason trying to download their best player but until now no team was willing to meet their very high demands. The flagship catcher of the game will move into a new and welcoming baseball field in Philadelphia and will fit into the heart of a more productive training. For two years' control of Realmuto, the Phillies will send the young catcher Jorge Alfaro, the top bullet Sixto Sanchez, the prospect of low-level pitching Will Stewart and a $ 250,000 bonus pool at Marlins. Realmuto was unhappy in Miami, mainly because they were in the middle of a complete cycle of demolition and reconstruction.

The Marlins have spent the entire offseason trying to download their best player but until now no team was willing to meet their very high demands. The flagship catcher of the game will move into a new and welcoming baseball field in Philadelphia and will fit into the heart of a more productive training. For two years' control of Realmuto, the Phillies will send the young catcher Jorge Alfaro, the top bullet Sixto Sanchez, the prospect of low-level pitching Will Stewart and a $ 250,000 bonus pool at Marlins. Realmuto was unhappy in Miami, mainly because they were in the middle of a complete cycle of demolition and reconstruction. Realmuto has required a trade in the last two years and eventually gets his wish.

Realmuto was the best catcher of fantasy baseball last year, as ranked by both ESPN Player Rater and Yahoo's rating system. The transition from Marlins Park to Citizens Bank Park can only do wonders for its offensive production. Fangraphs home parking factors show that home racing is 21% more likely at Philly than Miami. Realmuto beat .277 / .340 / .484 last year with 21 home runs and 74 RBIs. The home and the RBI total have been new career records despite the 125 games played in the career – and has great chances to beat those brands again next season. For the record, Realmuto has a career .676 OPS at home and an .852 OPS on the road. Now he has a new home and his fantasy owners are dreaming in advance. One more reason for which Realmuto is the best catcher is that it is one of the few catchers that can run: leading the majors among the catchers with 31 bases stolen in the last four years (Yadier Molina is the next with only 19 bags in more period) . Realmuto should be the first catcher outside the draft board in all formats.

Heading towards the Marlin will be the catcher Jorge Alfaro. Even if it is going into a less aggressive environment, trade could be positive for its fancy value, especially since it is likely that it will get a lot more fights with its new club. It received just 344 bats with the Phillies last year beating 0.226 / .324 / .407 with 10 homers and 37 RBI. He has a lot of power and can drop the ball out of any field. His problem is twofold: a strike rate of 35.2% for his career and a travel rate of 4.3%. The launchers do not intend to challenge him with passable launches on the plate until he demonstrates he can abandon the garbage outside the attack zone. Alfaro has an average career of .270 characters, which is good enough, but his BABIP career .405 will suffer a big crash as the sample size increases. It is likely to establish itself in the long run as a powerful hitter with a low beaten average.

The centerpiece of the Marlins is the 24-year-old Sixto Sanchez. It is widely regarded as one of the top 10 launch prospects in the game and was ranked as the number 27 in the MLB Pipeline overall ranking last month. He spent last season at High Single-A Clearwater and recorded an ERA 2.51 with 45 strikeouts in 46 2/3 innings out of eight starts. It was closed in June due to inflammation of the elbow and lost the rest of the season. At a height of one and a half meters it is a bit undersized for a traditional draft horse that starts the pitcher. He is a desirable advantage in the leagues of the dynasty, but can be ignored in editorial championships this season. His league debut will probably not reach 2020 as soon as possible. Sanchez immediately becomes the prize of the Marlins agricultural system. The Marlins have one of the weakest agricultural systems in baseball, despite the recent commercial exchanges of Giancarlo Stanton, Christian Yelich and Marcell Ozuna.

The left-handed starter Will Stewart will join Sanchez and Alfaro on the plane to Miami. The 21-year-old spent 2018 at Low Single-A Lakewood and recorded an impressive ERA of 2.06 with 90 strikeouts in 113 2/3 innings while making 20 starts. Considering that it was a 20th turn in the draft of 2015, it has exceeded expectations. Its fastball speed is average at best. It's more of a sinkerballer that causes a lot of groundball outs keeping the ball in the yard. Last year he only sold five long balls and recorded an elite percentage of 62.1 percent. The real test will come when it reaches the upper minors.

Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that the Giants recently met with Bryce Harper. Heyman adds that "in the last week more" new teams "emerged for Harper, perhaps an indicator of the fact that its price has decreased with the approach of the beginning of spring training. Alex Pavlovic of the NBC Sports Bay Area hears Giants CEO Larry Baer, ​​manager Bruce Bochy and new president of baseball operations Farhan Zaidi were all present at Harper's meeting The Giants are in and they have previously said they would not make major outlets on the free agent market this winter – obviously a Harper signature would be the biggest splash possible – adding Harper could restart the reconstruction in one fell swoop – San Francisco would not be the point ideal starting point for Harper's fantasy value, Oracle Park is an ideal stadium for pitchers and perhaps the most difficult park in the championship in which to compete at home. recently contracted with the Padres. The Phillies are considered by some to be the favorite in the race for Harper, with the White Sox and the Nationals who are trying to sign it. Spring training is coming fast. Which team is going to write the huge control that it will take to land on Harper?

** The Royals signed RHP Brad Boxberger with a $ 2.2 million one-year contract. The 30-year-old spared 32 games for the Diamondbacks last season and beat 71 over 53 1/3 innings, but also missed eight bailouts and ended up with a 4.39 ERA pawn. Boxberger is probably the favorite to close for the Royals, which would push Wily Peralta to an installation role. Boxberger regularly publishes huge strike rates, but it does too many walks and is prone to the gopherball game – it has served nine home runs in just 53 1/3 of innings last year. The change in the playgrounds should help in this, but it is likely to be one of the most volatile lockers in baseball this year.

** Rangers have signed OF Hunter Pence for a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. Pence beat only .226 / .258 / .332 with four home runs and 24 RBI out of 248 flat appearances last year with the Giants. He was a perennial initial draft shooter in the fantasy leagues, but we can hardly see those days in the rearview mirror.

** The arbitration hearing of Gerrit Cole with Astros is scheduled for Monday. Cole claimed a salary of $ 13.5 million for 2019 and was offered $ 11.425 million from the Astros when the arbitration figures were traded last month. The right-sided 28-year-old went from 15 to 5 with 2.88 ERA, 1.03 WHIP and 276/64 K / BB in 200 1/3 innings (32 games) last season, while he earned $ 6.75 million. This is his last year of arbitration eligibility. The free agency looms next winter.

** Alex Bregman, who underwent surgery last month to remove the loose bodies from his elbow, resumed Wednesday. The operation has an estimated recovery time of six weeks, so the young star should be completely healthy for the start of the regular season. It fell at the rate of a cutting line .286 / .394 / .532 with 31 home runs, 103 RBIs, 105 shots scored and 10 stolen bases for the Astros last year. The injury adds a small amount of uncertainty to those of the leagues with initial drafts. It would be wise to make sure that you are playing in spring training games before investing too heavily in Bregman.

** According to Jon Heyman of MLB Network, the Blue Jays are among the teams that show interest in the legendary free agent Sergio Romo. The right-handed veteran launched a ratio of 4.14 ERA and 75/20 K / BB in 67 1/3 of innings as a versatile arm for the spokes in 2018, earning 25 bailouts and even starting a handful of games. He would probably work in a setup role behind Ken Giles closer to the Jays if that's where he lands.

** The brewers signed RHP Josh Tomlin to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training. Tomlin spent much of last season playing a mop-up role for the Indians after a difficult start, posting a 6.14 ERA in 32 appearances.

** Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports that the Nationals reconfirmed Jeremy Hellickson with a $ 1.3 million contract. There are incentives based on performance in the deal that can push its total value to $ 4 million. Hellickson launched well for the national team last year when he is in good health, but the peripheral numbers suggest he had a bit of luck, and he has not beaten enough battar to maintain a significant relevance in the fantasy to mixed level. He had 19.45 ERA in 19 starts last year, but the fantasy owners will not forget his ERA 5.43 in 30 starts the year before.
