The Mets continue contacting the Marlins about All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto.
The catcher and his agent have been vocal about wanting to be traded from the rebuilding Marlins to a winning team that could be interested in signing him to a long-term contract extension. He is likely to earn a combined $15-20 million the next two seasons, after which he'll be a free agent at age 29.
The Fish, who have traded away most of their assets under the new ownership that includes former Yankee captain Derek Jeter, have made it clear they would want a king's ransom of prospects and players in return.
