Tampa Bay Rays News and Links: Milwaukee Brewers land Yasmani Grandal on one year deal

One less suitor for JT Realmuto

MLB: World Series-Boston Red Sox at Los Angeles Dodgers Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

There is one less suitor on the market for Miami Marlins star catcher, JT Realmuto, as the Milwaukee Brewers agreed to a one year deal with Yasmani Grandal, for just over $18M for the 2019 season.

Earlier this offseason, Grandal turned down the $17M qualifying offer from the Los Angeles Dodgers and reportedly turned down a four year deal from the New York Mets.
