J.T. Realmuto: Rejects qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto will reject his one-year, $18.9 million qualifying offer from the Phillies on Wednesday, Jon Heyman of MLB Network reports.

Realmuto was expected to reject the qualifying offer as he seeks a multi-year deal in free agency, but the team that signs him will now have to forfeit a draft pick as compensation. The 29-year-old had a career-best .840 OPS with 11 home runs and 32 RBI during the shortened 2020 season and figures to be one of the most appealing players on the open market.

J.T. Realmuto: Extended qualifying offer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto was extended an $18.9 million qualifying offer by the Phillies on Sunday, Mark Feinsand of MLB.com reports.

Realmuto will certainly decline the qualifying offer, but any team that signs him will now forfeit a draft pick as compensation, which could cost Realmuto a little money on the open market. However, as the clear top catcher in the game, he figures to be an appealing target for most competitive ball clubs this winter. He hit .266/.349/.491 with 11 home runs and four steals in 47 games in his age-29 season.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Starting at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto will start at first base and will bat cleanup Wednesday against the Nationals.

Realmuto has previously made four appearances at first base this season, but he'll be picking up his first start at the position Wednesday. Since Realmuto still not 100 percent healthy after recently missing a week and a half with a hip injury, the Phillies are reluctant to expose him to catching duties. Rhys Hoskins (elbow) is unlikely to return before Sunday's regular-season finale, so Realmuto could have the opportunity to make up to three more starts at the position after Wednesday. That may be enough to allow Realmuto to head into 2021 with eligibility at both catcher and first base in certain fantasy leagues.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Remains in lineup for nightcap
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto will bat cleanup as the designated hitter in the second half of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals.

Previous reports indicated that Realmuto wouldn't be asked to play twice on one day immediately after returning from a nine-day absence with a hip injury. The Phillies' loss in the afternoon game appears to have given them a sense of urgency, however, so they'll push the star catcher to his limits Tuesday with their playoff hopes very much up in the air.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Returns to lineup
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto (hip) will catch the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Nationals, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Realmuto will wind up missing nine days with hip discomfort but will be able to help the Phillies out in the tense final days of the playoff race. Whether or not he's able to handle his typically heavy workload immediately after returning from injury remains to be seen. He isn't expected to play a role in the second game of Tuesday's doubleheader, even as a designated hitter.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Still sidelined Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto (hip) isn't in Monday's lineup against the Nationals.

Realmuto was initially on track to return Monday, but he isn't yet ready to serve as the catcher. Bryce Harper (back) will serve as the designated hitter Monday, so Realmuto will get at least one additional day to recover. However, he could be available as a pinch hitter if needed and could start one of Tuesday's games in the doubleheader, Jim Salisbury of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports. Andrew Knapp will start behind the plate.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Monday return uncertain
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto (hip) won't be ready to catch Monday, and it's unclear whether he'll be able to serve as the designated hitter, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Realmuto reportedly made progress in his recovery Friday, but he wasn't available to pinch hit over the weekend. Manager Joe Girardi wasn't sure if he'd be able to return to the lineup Monday, even as the designated hitter. Andrew Knapp and Rafael Marchan should continue to start at catcher while Realmuto is unable to play the field.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Could return Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto (hip) made progress Friday and could return for Monday's series opener against the Nationals, Matt Breen of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Realmuto has already been ruled out for the Phillies' weekend series, but he could be on track for a return Monday as long as he doesn't experience any setbacks. Andrew Knapp should continue to serve behind the plate in Realmuto's absence.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Won't return over weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto (hip) won't play over the weekend, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Realmuto continues to deal with a hip issue, and it'll hold him out at least until Monday's matchup in Washington. Andrew Knapp will handle the catching duties until Realmuto is cleared to return.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Still out Thursday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto (hip) is not in the lineup Thursday against the Mets.

Realmuto will be sidelined by hip discomfort for the fifth straight day, though he may be able to return this weekend versus the Blue Jays. Andrew Knapp receives another start behind the plate Thursday.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Could return by weekend
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto (hip) could return by this weekend, Scott Lauber of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

Realmuto hasn't appeared since leaving Saturday's game against the Marlins with hip discomfort, though he hasn't been placed on the injured list. If he is indeed able to return over the weekend, that decision will look like the correct one. Andrew Knapp has been the team's primary catcher in his absence.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Still sitting
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto (hip) remains on the bench Wednesday against the Mets.

Realmuto still hasn't played since injuring his hip Saturday, though the fact that he's yet to be placed on the injured list in theory suggests that he won't be out for too much longer. Andrew Knapp starts behind the plate again Wednesday.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Remains sidelined
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Not starting Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto (hip) is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Marlins.

Realmuto left Saturday's game with hip discomfort and did not take part in either half of Sunday's doubleheader. The results of the MRI he underwent recently have yet to be released, but he evidently hasn't been cleared to start Monday. Rafael Marchan will make his big-league debut behind the plate in his absence.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Set to undergo MRI
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto (hip) will undergo an MRI, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

Realmuto left Saturday's game against the Marlins with hip discomfort and wasn't in the lineup for either of the games in Sunday's twin bill. Manager Joe Girardi wasn't able to provide a timetable for his return following Sunday's doubleheader, but Realmuto's MRI could help determine the severity of the issue.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Not playing Game 2
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto (hip) is not in the lineup for Game 2 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Marlins, Todd Zolecki of MLB.com reports.

Realmuto will sit out both games of the twin bill after leaving Saturday's contest with hip discomfort. Andrew Knapp receives another start behind the plate, and the Phillies called up Rafael Marchan to provide catching depth.

September 13, 2020 11:56 AM
Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Remains out Game 1
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto (hip) is not in the lineup for Game 1 of Sunday's doubleheader against the Marlins, Matt Gelb of The Athletic reports.

Realmuto exited Saturday's contest during the eighth inning with hip discomfort, and it remains unclear if he'll be available for either of Sunday's contests. However, the fact the Phillies didn't promote a catcher when announcing roster moves early in the day could bode well for his outlook. Andrew Knapp will start behind the plate in the matinee.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Leaves with hip discomfort
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto was removed from Saturday's win over the Marlins with hip discomfort, Meghan Montemurro of The Athletic reports.

The 29-year-old went 0-for-4 with two runs and a walk before suffering the injury running to first base during the eighth inning. The specifics of the injury remain unclear, and Realmuto will be further evaluated Sunday.

Phillies' J.T. Realmuto: Three hits in nightcap Friday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Realmuto went 3-for-4 with an RBI during a 5-3 loss to the Marlins in the second game of Friday's doubleheader.

After going 0-for-3 with a run scored as the catcher in the matinee, Realmuto got a partial breather in the nightcap as the DH and took advantage. Through 40 games this season, he's slashing .274/.361/.541 with 11 homers, four steals, 30 RBI and 31 runs.

by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire
