      Mets' Kevin Plawecki: Underwent sinus surgery in December

      Plawecki has sinus surgery in December, opening up his blocked right sinus, which doctors believe was the cause of the dizzy spells that plagued the catcher in the past, the NY Daily News reports. Plawecki is already at the Mets' spring complex to prepare for his role as the team's backup catcher and possibly see some time at first base. If Travis d'Arnaud is sideline again this season, Plawecki will once again step in as the Mets' starting backstop.

      Mets' Kevin Plawecki: will play some first base this spring

      Plawecki will see action at first base during the spring in an attempt to increase his versatility and potentially find a way to get him in the lineup when Travis d'Arnaud is behind the plate, the NY Post reports. Plawecki saw some time at first base in the minors, so playing the position won't be that foreign to him. It's unlikely he sees much time there, though he could possibly play against lefties when Lucas Duda sits and Wilmer Flores is deployed elsewhere in the infield.

      Mets' Kevin Plawecki: Could split time at catcher

      Mets assistant GM John Ricco said Tuesday that Plawecki could split time with Travis d'Arnaud at catcher in 2016, Newsday's Marc Carig reports. A position change could come in the future for either Plawecki or d'Arnaud, but the team has no urgency to make a switch. Plawecki ended up appearing in more regular-season games than d'Arnaud in 2015, with the latter once again missing significant time due to injury. D'Arnaud did far outperform Plawecki at the dish, but Plawecki was more valuable defensively and a timeshare would make sense given d'Arnaud's medical history.

      Mets option C Kevin Plawecki to Triple, recall C Anthony Recker

Plawecki saw his playing time dwindle with the return of Travis d'Arnaud from the disabled list. The Mets are poised to increase d'Arnaud's work load down the stretch, so they opted to get Plawecki more regular playing time down at Triple-A. The Mets are recalling Anthony Recker to serve as d'Arnaud's backup, according to ESPN.com.

      Mets C Kevin Plawecki sits, Johnny Monell starts on Wednesday

      Mets catcher Kevin Plawecki is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Brewers. Plawecki has had a rough go of it since making his debut in mid-April. However, the young backstop has been hitting better in the month of June, batting at a .296 clip through 11 games this month. Manager Terry Collins said he wants Plawecki to be behind the plate for Jacob deGrom on Thursday afternoon, so he will get the night off on Wednesday, according to ESPN.com. Johnny Monell, who was called up when Travis d'Arnaud hit the disabled list on Tuesday, will make his third start of the year for the Mets behind the plate on Wednesday.
