Thursday that sent catcher J.T. Realmuto to the Phillies for four players.The Phillies Freddy Galvis Jersey , who had been as low as +1600 to win the World Series this offseason, moved to +1200 a few weeks ago thanks to Harper/Machado rumors and +1000 following the trade.Though today is the NBA trade deadline, MLB wanted to get in on the action. With Derek Jeter’s Marlins clearly in full rebuild, they were finally able to reach a deal to trade their last truly valuable major league trade chip by sending catcher J.T. Realmuto to the Phillies.2019 MLB Home Run Odds: Giancarlo Stanton, Aaron Judge Top the ListRead nowIn return, Miami will receive 25-year-old backstop Jorge Alfaro, who was in line to be Philly’s regular catcher, Sixto Sanchez, Philly’s top prospect and the No. 27 prospect in the MLB Randal Grichuk Jersey , Will Stewart and an international bonus slot. It’s a hefty haul, but the deal undoubtedly makes them much better for the time being.Earlier in the offseason, the Phillies had been as low as +1600 to win the World Series, but that number had improved to +1200 before the trade thanks to Bryce Harper and Manny Machado rumors.Following the deal, they moved to +1000 鈥?second in the National League behind the Dodgers at +800. If they failed to acquire Realmuto or either mega free agent, you’d have likely seen their odds drop back to the +1600 range.The Marlins remained a 150-1 longshot following the trade.Realmuto is not a household name, at least in most households, but you better believe he’s one of the best catchers in basebal?if not the best. Last year, and over the past three seasons Jose Bautista Jersey , he has been the best in terms of fWAR.He set career marks in several categories in a stellar 2018 campaign that further built up his value:fWAR (4.8), wRC+ (126), home runs (21), RBI (74), OPS (.824)Note that he also only played 125 games, so those counting stats could have been even higher.This marks the third significant position player acquisition this offseason for the Phillies, as they already traded for Jean Segura and signed Andrew McCutchen.They’d still like to land one of the superstars, too, which would make their lineup one of the best in the majors.

They already signed David Robertson and have been linked to names such as Dallas Keuchel and Craig Kimbrel.They’d find themselves among the World Series favorites if all of that fell into place, but who knows what will happen to close out this strange offseason. SURPRISE, Ariz. (AP) — The Kansas City Royals agreed to a $2.5 million, one-year deal with Martin Maldonado on Saturday, giving them a veteran catcher after losing Salvador Perez to a season-ending injury.The deal includes up to $1.4 million in incentives for games caught, according to a person familiar with the terms, who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because Maldonado still must pass a physical for the contract to become official.Maldonado spent last season with the Angels and Astros, hitting .225 with nine homers and 44 RBIs in 119 games. But his biggest strength has been his ability to frame pitches and play defense, and his experience should help what is expected to be a young Royals team this season.In fact Marcus Stroman Jersey , Maldonado’s Gold Glove in 2017 broke Perez’s streak of four straight.Perez underwent Tommy John surgery last week after tearing a ligament in his throwing arm during a spring training workout. Perez is expected to remain with the club while rehabbing this season, and the hope is that the six-time All-Star will be ready by next spring.“We move on. That’s the way it is,” Royals manager Ned Yost said. “Salvy is going to be with us all year long, he’s going to be there doing his rehab — the rehab is a difficult process. But we have to continue to move forward.”Perez’s injury meant the Royals were poised to enter the season with Cam Gallagher, a defensive-minded career backup, and 22-year-old Meibrys Viloria, who has had just 22 big league at-bats.They had also been mulling the use of Frank Schwindel, a college catcher now at first base.But general manager Dayton Moore said he would seek a veteran backstop, whether it was through free agency or a trade. And speculation quickly settled upon the 32-year-old Maldonado Devon Travis Jersey , mainly because he was the only veteran that wasn’t already in a major league camp.He broke into the majors with Milwaukee in 2011 and spent his first six years there, before a season-plus with the Angeles. Los Angeles traded him to the Astros last July, and Maldonado helped the club reach the AL Championship Series before losing to the Boston Red Sox.He will have a quick turnaround before opening day.The Royals played the Diamondbacks on Saturday and face the Padres on Sunday, then have split-squad games against the Mariners and Rangers on Monday. But after that, they have just 14 more games before the start of the regular season, including split-squad games next weekend.Kansas City opens the regular season March 28 against the White Sox.
