The move is a bit surprising as it was assumed other Major League Baseball teams had maneuvered into position to make a deal, with the Dodgers, Padres, Reds, Rays, and Braves making their strongest offers in the past few days.
Many consider Realmuto the biggest name on the offseason trade market, and at least six teams reportedly inquired about trading for him since he rejected the Marlins' contract offer in October.
With Realmuto no longer available, the Dodgers seem poised to go into Spring Training with Russell Martin and Austin Barnes as their primary catchers.
Scheduled to make $5.9 million this season, Realmuto wouldn't preclude the Phils from signing Bryce Harper or Manny Machado. Meanwhile, the Mets "desparately wanted" Realmuto, but the Marlins' asking price was not right.
Nothing wrong with taking a shot, but teams rarely overpay under any circumstances anymore, not in free agency, not in trades. Starting pitcher Sixto Sanchez headlines the return for Miami.

"We're talking about the best catcher in all of baseball, so of course he was popular", Hill said. He led the Marlins with 21 home runs and 74 RBI for the season.
Klentak said he first inquired about Realmuto last summer and again early in the offseason.
He was by far the team's most valuable asset and the most marketable face. The team added both Neil Walker and Curtis Granderson recently in low cost/high reward deals that could pan out and help this team win more than 63 games as it did previous year. The trade discussion that dominated the offseason has finally ended and the Reds appear to be set for the 2019 season with Tucker Barnhart behind the plate. The Rays had outfield prospects it could part with.
Sanchez is the most well-regarded prospect in the deal, a 6-foot right-hander whose fastball sits in the high 90s and tops out over 100 miles per hour.
Realmuto became a National League all-star for the first time last season. Alfaro, 25, is a power-hitting, cannon-armed catcher who will join a young group in Miami. He has a 2.48 ERA in 48 minor league games over four seasons but pitched just 46 2/3 innings in Single A last season due to right elbow inflammation.
