What I think Janes says is that, yes, they are going to be over this year, but probably not by a ludicrous amount, and then, with a ton coming off next year (in addition to Harper, Murphy, and Gio,  there's Wieters, Madson, Kelley, and a few others), they could re-sign Harper and still have maybe $40MM of cap room.  Realmuto would not change that.

I wonder if Difo for Realmuto would work?  They need IF help, with no one established besides Castro (if they don't flip him).  Sanchez then becomes your back up unless you make a signing.  If you think Goodwin could be a 2d division starter, then you might have another piece to move.

my guess is that we end up going into the season with Wieters and Severino, and looking for help at the deadline if Wieters is again awful.
