The Phillies have offered J.T. Realmuto a contract, according to Jon Heyman.
The Mets were thought to be a favorite to sign Realmuto early in the offseason, but opted instead for James McCann, signing him to a four-year contract worth $40.6 million, considerably less than Realmuto is expect to garner.
New Phillies president of baseball operations Dave Dombrowski told reporters that Jeff Berry, Realmuto’s agent, reached out to him on Monday about his client.
John is a great reporter. So when he says this unequivocally that the #Phillies have never made Realmuto an offer, you can be sure he took great pains to nail this down. https://t.co/goelrZZbvu
