Report: Nationals still have interest in JT Realmuto trade
The Miami Marlins’ offseason of selling still may not be done.
According to Jon Morosi of MLB.com, the Marlins and the Washington Nationals continue to discuss a possible trade involving catcher J.T. Realmuto. The Nationals, however, are said to be reluctant to part with their top prospects.
Sources: #Marlins, #Nationals remain in touch but have not made progress on a J.T. Realmuto trade. Thus far, Miami has asked for deal to include Victor Robles or Juan Soto; Nats have said no. (@JonHeyman first reported Robles as part of ask.) @MLB @MLBNetwork

Realmuto has reportedly been disillusioned with the direction of the Marlins over the offseason and has requested a trade. They are, understandably, asking a high price for a 26-year-old catcher who hit .278 a year ago. We’ll see if anyone pays up — or if the Marlins compromise a bit.
