Realmuto skips Classic to learn new position

I see no harm in giving him a rest behind the plate, those guys take a serious beating back there. This is a very common practice these days. It has nothing to do with whether or not he's a good catcher. For god's sake, he's not even the shoelaces of Posey or Mauer and those guys have been playing a lot of first base for years.  Obviously those two are post-injury cases, but still.

Realmuto hit great last season. That doesn't make him a proven hitter. Would definitely have preferred if they just let keep working solely on being a good catcher. If he needs rest then rest him and play Ellis. This is just a terrible cheap Marlins move to avoid spending a fuckin dime more to find a platoon at first. And has there really ever been this many cheap options ? Could easily found someone on a minor League contract that could still be "kind of useful".

One perfect excuse from Hill would be "we have no more roster spot for a fifth bench player,because we need to do anything to keep the Cy Young award caliber pitcher "Urena"".

Along with Realmuto, non roster invite outfielder Brandon Barnes is also learning first base this spring. If there's any non roster guy with a fair chance of making this team it's gotta be Barnes. If he picks up the new position and has a good spring at the plate he could change the 4 man bench idea and become the right handed bench bat this team needs to back up Bour and fill out the bench.

No chance barring injury

I  don't think we would give up Jose "Cy Young" Urena.
