J.T. Realmuto is not in the lineup for the Philadelphia Phillies against the New York Mets Sunday.
Realmuto will sit out for general rest Sunday, with Garrett Stubbs starting behind the plate at catcher and batting ninth against the Mets.
Realmuto had a productive game, going 1-for-4 with a home run and three RBI, helping the Phillies secure a 5-4 victory over the Mets.
Despite his low batting average this season, Realmuto has been a consistent run producer, with 60 RBI in 130 games played. While his strikeout rate remains a concern, his power numbers and ability to drive in runs make him a valuable fantasy asset in the catcher position. Fantasy managers should continue to rely on Realmuto for his run production and occasional power surge, but his batting average may limit his overall value.
