RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for J.T. Realmuto.
While Kyle Skipworth's prospect status is fading fast, Realmuto, a converted shortstop, did enough last season to inherit the Marlins' Catcher of the Future tag. He's still raw behind the plate, but the arm that could have made him a highly recruited quarterback is already gunning down basestealers at a nice clip, and his bat showed signs of progress as well at Low-A (12 homers and 13 steals from a kid spending most of his free time doing catching drills isn't bad at all). While Buster Posey comps are inevitable and misguided given the position switch, he is smart and athletic enough to develop into a solid major league backstop down the road if Miami is patient with him, or maybe switch the misguided comps from Posey to Craig Biggio if his new position doesn't take. He's still a few years from the majors, but Realmuto's athleticism and skill set make him an intriguing prospect at fantasy's thinnest spot.
