JT REALMUTO IS HEALTHY, SO PHILS RELEASE CATCHER JEFF MATHIS

By Sam Bush

The Phillies granted vet catcher Jeff Mathis’ request to be released so he can test the field as a free agent.

Mathis, 38 next week, went 6-for-29 with a homer and a pair of doubles with the Phillies this spring. His chances of making the roster seemed to improve when J.T. Realmuto sustained a small fracture in his thumb early in camp, but Realmuto has returned to the lineup and is now looking likelier to be ready for the opener. Mathis’ release only seems to add to that likelihood.
