Phils traded alot to get Realmuto a couple years ago. They need to validate that move. So let them overpay on JTR and be saddled with another crazy ass contract. Nats need Ozuna. Besides, who in-house would they use to replace Eaton next season, Stephenson? Harrison? No thanks.
Stevenson looked pretty good in what was admittedly an abbreviated run this season. Yadiel Hernandez looked decent also.
With Suzuki a free agent, the outfield corps without any changes (Ozuna, Springer, or re-signing Eaton) looks stronger at this point than the catching without any changes. They have Soto, Robles, Stevenson, and Hernandez in the outfield. They are likely to sign at least one of Harrison, Cabrera, and Holt, and likely Howie, if he wants to play another year. The catching right now consists of Gomes, Raudy Read, and Tres Barrera. I think the catching is more in need of an upgrade.
