Phillies Working On Extension With J.T. Realmuto

The Philadelphia Phillies are trying to hammer out a contract extension for catcher J.T. Realmuto this offseason, according to multiple sources. However, an extension with the All-Star backstop might not come before the new year, and it might not even come before the start of spring training. Realmuto won both a Gold Glove and Silver Slugger in 2019 and has been one of, if not the best, at his position the last couple of seasons. It's possible the Phillies sign him to a one-year deal this winter and then finalize a separate multi-year extension that would start in 2021. Realmuto, 29 in March, is expected to get an extension of four or five years with an average annual value of $20 million or more. He'll once again be one of the first catchers off the board in fantasy in 2020.

Odubel Herrera Will Have To Earn Roster Spot

Philadelphia Phillies outfielder Odubel Herrera, who was suspended for 85 games last summer for a domestic-violence incident, must earn his spot on the roster next spring training, according to general manager Matt Klentak. Scott Kingery, Adam Haseley and Roman Quinn are all options to start in center field over Herrera, and the Phillies could also add another outfielder on the open market. Whereas Odubel had been the everyday center fielder for a handful of seasons, now all of a sudden theres more of a competition there so the landscape has changed, Klentak said. Hes an option for us. The Phils could also try to trade Herrera or simply release him and pay the remaining $21 million on his contract. Before his suspension, Herrera had been benched in favor of Kingery after hitting .222 with a .629 OPS in 39 games. He won't be on the redraft radar entering spring drafts.

Phillies Decline Option On Jason Vargas

The Philadelphia Phillies declined their 2020 option on starting pitcher Jason Vargas and will instead pay him a $2 million buyout to make him a free agent. The team also declined the options for relief pitchers Jared Hughes and Pat Neshek. Vargas went 7-9 with a 4.51 ERA, 1.36 WHIP and 124 strikeouts in 149 2/3 innings in 29 starts and one relief outing for the Mets and Phillies in 2019. He made 18 starts with the Mets and 11 with Philly. He was less effective with the Phils, posting a 5.37 ERA later in the season. The soft-tossing left-hander doesn't have much left in his career and isn't a guarantee to land a starting gig on the open market.

Jake Arrieta Won't Opt Out Of His Deal

Philadelphia Phillies starting pitcher Jake Arrieta will not exercise the opt-out clause in his contract after coming off elbow surgery. He's heading into the final year of a three-year, $75 million contract and will earn $20 million in 2020. The right-hander posted an ERA above 4.00 (4.64) for the first time since 2013 and went 8-8 with a 1.47 WHIP and 7.3 K/9 in 135 2/3 innings (24 starts) for the Phils last season. Arrieta is far from the Cy Young winner he was with the Cubs in 2015, but he has a chance to bounce back for fantasy owners if his arm issues are a thing of the past next year. There could be value in Arrieta in the later rounds as pitching depth.

Blake Parker Named Opener for Sunday

Philadelphia Phillies relief pitcher Blake Parker has been named the opener for Sunday's season finale against the Miami Marlins. Parker has already made an appearance as an opener in Philly, so the team decided to give it another shot. It's unclear who is going to follow Parker out of the bullpen. The Phillies are likely going to have everyone available since it's the last game of the season.
