J.T. Realmuto trade rumors at the Winter Meetings: Dec. 9

Providing you with Realmuto updates on a daily basis as momentum builds toward a blockbuster deal.

Although J.T. Realmuto has been on the trading block throughout 2018, the Marlins haven’t budged on their high asking price. That approach has made me uneasy at times, but according to multiple reports, it’s serving them well—he continues to draw interest from a wide variety of suitors. Jim Bowden of The Athletic identifies 10 teams who are “in” on the All-Star catcher as we kick off...

Top 2018 defensive highlights from Brian Anderson’s rookie season

After years spent developing as an infielder, BA was quick to adapt to his new position midway through the 2018 season. What’s the best fit for him? Watch and decide for yourself...

In Thursday’s Fish Stripes roundtable, the majority of our writers selected Brian Anderson as the Marlins major leaguer they’d be most comfortable locking up long term.

On a related note, what exactly is he?

BA began and finished the 2018 season at third base as Martín Prado struggled with injuries....

Report: Five teams aggressively pursuing J.T. Realmuto

Miami Marlins catcher J.T. Realmuto continues to attract wide interest across the league. According to Jim Bowden of The Athletic, five teams are most aggressively leading the charge in Realmuto trade talks. Realmuto has been in trade rumors for quite some time. The Mets have been widely linked to him, but they’re clearly not the only suitor. The catcher is expected to be in high demand. The .277 hitter is coming off his first 20-home run season for the Marlins, and it looks like he’ll...

Marlins' Winter Meetings Checklist

Michael Hill and the Marlins front office head to Las Vegas for a critical week that could impact the future of the franchise. With arguably the best catcher in the majors available for trade, the Miami Marlins will be one of the teams to watch at the 2018 Baseball Winter Meetings. The Marlins, who are entering Year 2 of a full rebuild, will be an active “seller” at the Winter Meetings because of J.T. Realmuto’s trade value. Miami’s lone All-Star in 2018 took home the National...

Starlin Castro is still here

The veteran second baseman seemed like a trade chip for the Marlins at last year’s MLB Winter Meetings. Will they find a contender to unload him to this time?

Just stating the obvious: the Marlins never wanted Starlin Castro. The veteran second baseman was forced upon them in the Giancarlo Stanton trade. Though desperate to slash payroll, on the other side of the negotiating table, the Yankees had their own mission to get below MLB’s luxury tax threshold. Shipping out the expendable...

Report: At least 14 teams interested in J.T. Realmuto

One of the biggest names on the MLB trade market is J.T. Realmuto. Should the Miami Marlins decide to deal their catcher, they’ll have plenty of options. Jon Heyman of Fancred Sports reported that “the Marlins have interest from no fewer than 14 teams for star catcher.” Excluding the Washington Nationals, this includes all of their National League East rivals. That there’s a lot of interest is far from surprising. Realmuto is one of baseball’s best offensive catchers. He is a...

Elbow surgery “a blessing in disguise” for Marlins RHP Jordan Holloway

The young right-hander made a surprisingly leap onto the club’s 40-man roster last month. Holloway tells Fish Stripes about how Tommy John surgery helped his career and expectations for 2019.

In late September, I was able to attend an instructional league game in Miami between Marlins and Washington Nationals prospects. It truly was a great experience for everyone involved. One comment that really stuck with me from that day: “He has come back with fastball control hitting anywhere from...

Fish Stripes x Our Colores: Introducing the site’s Marlins-inspired rebrand

A few weeks overdue, but hopefully we got it right!

There is, as you might expect, frequent turnover in the sports blogging world. Only a few current members of the Fish Stripes staff remain from when my move to managing editor became officially official six months ago. Frankly, I have no clue what the website’s logo looked like prior to 2012, or if the site even had a logo back then. Perhaps some of our loyal commenters can provide a history lesson?

Point is, I feel confident in stating...

With Cano and Diaz in their back pocket, Mets are going after J.T. Realmuto

Trade chatter surrounding J.T. Realmuto will persist throughout the offseason following the definitive declaration that he won’t be signing an extension with the Marlins. While the Marlins reportedly have a preference to trade Realmuto outside of the division, Andy Martino of SNY writes that the Mets are looking into Realmuto now that they officially have Robinson Cano and Edwin Diaz on board. Ken Rosenthal of The Athletic, in fact, reports that the Mets reached out on Realmuto earlier...

Braves reportedly offer Austin Riley/Mike Soroka package for J.T. Realmuto

[rubs hands together] Now we’re talking!

Earlier on Tuesday, J.T. Realmuto’s agent Jeff Berry appeared on the Swings and Mishes podcast with Craig Mish and stated the obvious: an offseason trade would be a “win-win” for both J.T. and the Marlins. He wants to compete for a World Series title, while the club doesn’t feel comfortable paying market value on a long-term extension. The divorce seems inevitable.

Just a few hours later, Mish reports some progress on the trade...
