I think there is a package to deal for Realmuto, which would make good sense since he is controlled until 2020 and projects to be at least a league average bat with good defense, but awful framing skills, worse than Wieters bad. From BRef, it seems that LF is only slightly worse as a whole than C across the board.

It seems that the new luxury tax system under the new CBA is going to constrain us (and others) from going over the cap.  That means we aren't going to be able to take on Realmuto's salary, and I can't imagine anyone would take on Wieter's unless we pay for it in prospects.  That means a ridiculous overpay for Realmuto.
