The team needs a long term catcher AND another starter. I feel Lucroy is another Matt Wieters waiting to happen. I think a number 3 starter will cost more in trade than Realmuto, and the team has stated that they aren't trading Robles or Soto, and that limits what they can get back in return.

Kieboom has started hitting better. He’s always had a good glove and good arm. He’s never going to run fast but that’s true about most catchers. If he can continue to put his swing together, he might be an option, although personally I think a 2019 arrival might be pushing it. Assuming Wieters is not flat-out awful this season, it’s going to be interesting to see what they do with Kieboom.
