The Philadelphia Phillies have re-signed veteran catcher J.T. Realmuto to a five-year, $115.5 million deal, according to ESPN’s Jeff Passan.

Realmuto, 29, was considered one of the prized free agent in the market, and is widely considered to be the best all-around catcher in the majors, leading all catchers in WAR, RBIs, stolen bases and second in slugging percentage and OPS since 2018.

Realmuto hit .275 with 25 homers and 83 RBIs during the 2019 season and followed it up by hitting .266 with 11 homers and 32 RBIs last season for the Phillies.
