Mets have reached out to Marlins about All-Star catcher J.T. Realmuto: sources

“We like both of our catchers, we went into this thinking that if we could improve our defense behind the plate, we’d look to do that, but we’re not going to do that at the expense of making our team better,” Van Wagenen said. “Travis, we’re assuming he is going to come back healthy, we like his bat. Kevin (Plawecki) clearly has shown he can be an everyday player, or backup or a share starter. Both those players are a fit for us now. If we have to be open minded, if we have an opportunity to be, I guess productive in our pursuits.”
