Realmuto has been in trade rumors for quite some time. The Mets have been widely linked to him, but they’re clearly not the only suitor. The catcher is expected to be in high demand. The .277 hitter is coming off his first 20 home run season for the Marlins, and it looks like he’ll be playing elsewhere sooner rather than later, perhaps as soon as this offseason.
