Similar to Christian Yelich previously, one of the biggest trades made by the Miami Marlins in recent years was when the club traded catcher JT Realmuto to the Philadelphia Phillies back on February 7, 2019 for three players and future considerations.

A former third round pick by the organization back in the 2010 MLB Draft, Realmuto made his major league debut with Miami back in 2014, and would remain with the Marlins from 2014-18. One of the greatest catchers in Marlins history, Realmuto appeared in a total of 540 games with Miami during that five-year span, one that also included a combined .768 OPS, 13.9 WAR, and 59 home runs.

In addition to this, Realmuto made his first of three All-Star teams during his final season in Miami back in 2018, as well as winning his first of two Silver Sluggers in that same season.

Realmuto is currently cemented as one of the top overall catchers in baseball, and has made two All-Star appearances during the last three seasons in Philadelphia, as well as winning a Gold Glove and Silver Slugger back in 2019. Re-signing with the Phillies last January to a long-term deal, Realmuto is cemented as Philadelphia’s starting catcher going forward, and is a player that Miami will likely see often for the next couple of seasons.

As for the three players the Marlins received in the trade for Realmuto, where are they now?

Where are the players the Miami Marlins received for JT Realmuto now?

Jorge Alfaro

The Phillies starting catcher at the time of the deal, Alfaro had a career-year in his first season with the Marlins back in 2019, but would struggle at times during the 2020-21 seasons. After 253 games with Miami from 2019-21, Alfaro was recently traded to the San Diego Padres back on December 1, 2021.

Sixto Sanchez

Philadelphia’s top overall prospect at the time of the deal, Sanchez would instantly become Miami’s top prospect also, a label that the right-hander would hold in both 2019 and 2020. Making his major league debut during the 2020 season posting a 3.46 ERA across seven starts, the Marlins current No. 4 prospect recently missed all of the 2021 season due to injury.

Will Stewart

The final piece of the Realmuto deal was Stewart, a then 20-year-old left-hander who was coming off a career-year across 20 starts in Low-A of the Phillies organization back in 2018. After struggling at times during the 2019 season, Stewart spent the 2021 season in Double-A where the 24-year-old posted a 4.33 ERA across 20 starts.
