The interest of J.T. Realmuto is starting to heat up as division rival Atlanta Braves are prepared to send a heavy amount to pry-away the young catcher from the Marlins.
It was announced just weeks ago that Realmuto has no interest in a contract extension with the Marlins which is a stand-still in the Marlins front office. The Marlins do have an asking price on Realmuto and that is of two young prospects one being a pitcher and a position to build around for the team’s future.
The ball is currently in Marlins court as the team does not want to trade within the division, according to Mish, but depending on what is in on the table the Marlins could very well take it into consideration.
