BREAKING: Philadelphia Phillies Star Player Headed To 10-Day IL In Shocking Development

The Philadelphia Phillies placed J.T. Realmuto on the IL earlier today.

The Philadelphia Phillies placed Catcher J.T. Realmuto on the 10-day IL earlier today with right knee pain. This move is retroactive to Monday, June 10. Realmuto is scheduled to undergo right knee meniscectomy surgery tomorrow in Philadelphia. A timeline for Realmuto’s return is yet to be disclosed. He has battled knee pain throughout the 2024 season but has appeared in 51 of the Phillies’ 65 games this season.

Realmuto went 1-of-8 over the weekend against the New York Mets in the MLB World Tour: London Series. He is hitting .261 this season with seven home runs and 20 RBI. Rafael Marchán was recalled from Lehigh Valley (AAA) to take the spot of Realmuto. Marchán last played in the big leagues in 2021 with the Philadelphia Phillies hitting .231 with one home run and four RBI.

How will the Phillies fare in the absence of the perennial all-star catcher?

The Phillies begin a three-game series tonight against the Boston Red Sox. They continue their road trip this weekend when they visit the Baltimore Orioles.

The Philadelphia Phillies(45-20) have the best record percentage-wise in Major League Baseball. They have all the makings of a team that should be playing deep into October. Philadelphia will look to keep up their torrid pace without one of the best players on their ballclub.
