Report: Mets likely to revisit JT Realmuto trade
The New York Mets tried to trade for J.T. Realmuto last year, and it sounds like they may be about to try to make it happen once again.
According to Jon Heyman of Fancred, the Mets are expected to look into acquiring the Miami Marlins catcher once again, though he cautions they may balk at the very high asking price.
ramos and maldonado are among catchers of interest for the mets. but they are expected to investigate realmuto. again. he is repped by van wagenen's old agency. but the issue there is: would the mets trade the prospects to make such a mega deal? price tag is understandably huge!

The Mets looked at Realmuto after an early-season slew of injuries, but didn’t pull the trigger as their season went off the rails after that. The Mets have been conservative in the past, but it remains to be seen if new general manager Brodie Van Wagenen will chart a different path.
