The Mets might have an overcrowding problem behind the plate next season, given the progress Travis d'Arnaud and prospect Kevin Plawecki have shown this season.

"If their potential starts to converge at the major league level, and it warrants major league time, then we'll have to make a decision," manager Sandy Alderson told the New York Daily News Tuesday. "But in the meantime, we're happy to have both of them. But Kevin has made a lot of progress, and obviously Travis has done well the second half of this season."

Alderson does not think either player is likely to be used in a backup or reserve role. d'Arnaud is hitting .277/.321/.480 in 177 at-bats since the All-Star break, while Plawecki is hitting .309/.365/.460 in 101 minor-league games while reaching Triple-A.

News
Mets pitcher Dillon Gee took a loss Wednesday, giving up four earned runs on seven hits and two walks in 6 2/3 innings and striking out four in his team's 4-3 defeat against the Marlins.

Gee (7-8) had a pair of runs score in the first inning, one on a wild pitch and the next on an infield single. The Marlins tacked on another run in the second inning before adding to a 3-2 lead in the seventh with an RBI double. Gee, who didn't surrender a home run for the first time in four starts, owns a 3.88 ERA, 1.22 WHIP and 92:43 K:BB ratio in 132 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Nationals next Wednesday.

News
Granted, if the Mets make a play for Starlin Castro or some other high-profile shortstop this offseason, all bets are off, but Wilmer Flores' two-homer performance Tuesday against the Marlins was just the latest indication that the 23-year-old is on the verge of turning the corner.

And that's an exciting prospect for Fantasy owners now that he's proven at least competent at the weakest position in the game.

In his last 18 games, he's batting .303 with five home runs and a .984 OPS. He has struck out just twice in 66 at-bats during that stretch. In 43 games since the All-Star break (or since his return from the minors, more accurately), he has struck out just nine times in 140 at-bats.

That was his calling card in the minors, where he never struck out even 80 times in a season and was typically between 60 and 70. The high contact rate often resulted in a .300 batting average -- particularly in the upper levels, when he began to develop the power to hit 15-plus homers and 30-plus doubles.

It's a skill set similar to the one Edgardo Alfonzo brought with him to the majors in the late 90s. If you were playing Fantasy then, you'll probably remember he had a few years when he was a pretty stellar option even at the height of the steroids era. And he wasn't even a shortstop during that time.

Sleeper alert?

News
While some baseball fans probably hadn't heard of Jacob deGrom prior to his record-tying performance against the Marlins on Monday, most Fantasy owners were plenty familiar with his work already. That's what happens when a midseason waiver claim goes 8-2 with a 1.93 ERA, 1.00 WHIP and 9.6 strikeouts per nine innings during a 14-start stretch.

But is he really that good? Understand I'm not being literal here. Only a handful of pitchers in baseball history have been that good over a full season. But is deGrom really a strikeout-per-inning, top-30 type with the potential, maybe, to pitch like an ace? I'm starting to believe he is.

I won't spoil it here, but when I took a deeper look at deGrom's last 14 starts -- or really, his season as a whole -- in the Fantasy Baseball Today blog, I liked what I saw. In terms of swinging strike percentage, he's in elite company, and his velocity speaks for itself.

Plus, he throws strikes, keeps the ball in the yard, basically does everything that makes for a successful pitcher even apart from the strikeout rate. I don't think it's a stretch to say he could be next year's Corey Kluber.

News
Mets pitcher Bartolo Colon earned a win Tuesday, surrendering one earned run on 12 hits in 7 2/3 innings and striking out seven in his team's 9-1 victory over the Marlins.

Colon (14-12) allowed a run to come home on an infield single in the third inning, but though the Marlins offense continued to rack up hits, they couldn't answer the Mets' offensive outburst in the middle of the game. Colon owns a 4.02 ERA and 143:25 K:BB ratio in 190 1/3 innings. He's scheduled to face the Nationals next Tuesday.
