TUESDAY’S SINGLE DIGITS

>>> J.T. Realmuto started his 93rd game at catcher for the Phillies Monday, putting him on pace for 135 this season. That would place him among the 10 most starts by a Phillies catcher since 1908 (as far back as baseball-reference.com has starting lineups). He would need to start every game remaining to match Darren Daulton’s cub-record 143 starts as a backstop in 1993. Bob Boone is next with 142 (1974) and 141 (1973).
