Phillies’ star catcher JT Realmuto made his spring training debut yesterday against the Blue Jays after breaking his thumb back in February. He of course went yard, and thanks to Cindy Webster’s iPhone camera, we got footage!
Fantastic news for Fantasy Baseball owners looking to secure arguably the best offensive catcher in the game. The two-time All-Star will be pivotal for a bounce back Phillies 2021 campaign, so it’s nice to see him back. Also, the Phillies can now breathe a sigh of relief about that $115.5 million investment on Realmuto from a couple months back.
Cheers to a healthy season for Realmuto and we can throw in hope that Padres’ Fernando Tatis Jr. receives similar luck with his shoulder injury.
