    • Indians' Kevin Plawecki: Filling in for Perez
      By RotoWire Staff

      Plawecki will start at catcher and bat ninth Wednesday against the Athletics. He'll be filling in for top backstop Roberto Perez, who exited Tuesday's loss with a concussion. The Indians have indicated that Perez's head injury is only a mild one that won't force him to the 7-day injured list, but Plawecki could draw another handful of starts behind the dish while the team waits for Perez to gain full clearance.

    • Plawecki will start at catcher and bat ninth Sunday against the Mariners, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Plawecki was previously behind the plate in Friday's series opener, going hitless in three at-bats in the Tribe's 2-1 win. Despite picking up his second start in three days, Plawecki still looks to be locked in as the No. 2 catcher behind Roberto Perez, whose defense prowess provides greater value to the Indians than Plawecki's on-base skills.

    • Indians' Kevin Plawecki: Swats first homer
      By RotoWire Staff

      Plawecki went 1-for-3 with a solo home run in Friday's 3-2 win over the Blue Jays. Getting his second start of the season, Plawecki made his first hit with Cleveland count. The 28-year-old remains firmly behind Roberto Perez on the depth chart, but Perez's limitations at the plate could eventually open the door for Plawecki to move into something closer to a timeshare if he heats up.

    • Plawecki is out of the lineup for Saturday's game against the Twins, Mandy Bell of MLB.com reports. Plawecki wasn't behind the plate Thursday for the Tribe's Opening Day loss either, a firm indication he's viewed as the team's No. 2 backstop. Top option Roberto Perez hasn't shown much aptitude as a hitter over parts of six seasons in the big leagues, but the trust he's established with Cleveland's pitching staff should be enough to keep him ahead of Plawecki on the depth chart.

    • Indians' Kevin Plawecki: Dealt to Cleveland
      By RotoWire Staff

      Plawecki was traded from the Mets to the Indians for pitcher Walker Lockett and infielder Sam Haggerty on Sunday. Following the Mets' signing of Wilson Ramos, Plawecki looked to eventually wind up squeezed out of a roster spot in the big leagues. The Mets decided to use him as a trade piece, sending him to a Cleveland team that is a bit thin at catcher after shipping Yan Gomes away earlier in the offseason. Plawecki certainly doesn't possess the same offensive upside as Gomes, though, and his value is limited further if he ends up in a timeshare behind the plate with Roberto Perez, as the Indians employed in the past.
