  • Sporting News names Carl Albert's Realmuto as best NL catcher under 25

    Published: Tue, Jul 7, 2015

    Sporting News compiled the best players age 25 and younger at each position in the National League and ended up with an impressive lineup. The catcher on the list was none other than Miami's J.T. Realmuto, who was born in Del City and attended Carl Albert High School before being drafted by the then-Florida Marlins in the third round of the 2010 MLB Draft. Realmuto has been the Marlins' starting catcher for a majority of the season after getting a brief taste of the majors in 2014. In 2015, the 24-year-old is batting .247 with three home runs and 18 RBIs. Sporting News gave its the reasoning behind the selection of Realmuto, who won't even turn 25 until next March: "Realmuto was rated as a top-100 prospect by most services heading into this season, and he's done a solid job as Miami's primary catcher. And he's showing improvement at the plate; after batting .213 in the season's first two months, Realmuto batted .316 in June, with a .342 on-base percentage."
