J.T. Realmuto is under contract for one more season before he'll be eligible for free agency.

The Philadelphia Phillies would like to keep the catcher from getting to that point.

Realmuto has said throughout the season that he's open to remaining with the Phillies and the club would like to keep him around for the long-term.

They traded pitching prospect Sixto Sanchez and young catcher Jorge Alfaro to the Miami Marlins for Realmuto prior to this season.

The Phillies already have $110 million committed to nine players for 2020.
