Indians' Kevin Plawecki: Gets second start of series
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 | RotoWire

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.

Indians' Kevin Plawecki: Begins year as No. 2 catcher
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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 league, 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: Avoids arbitration with Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plawecki and the Indians agreed to a one-year, $1.1375 million contract Wednesday, avoiding arbitration, Bob Nightengale of USA Today reports.

Plawecki was acquired just three days prior and looks to be in line for a split with Roberto Perez behind the plate in Cleveland. Perez has never started more than 66 games behind the plate in Cleveland, typically playing a heavy backup role behind the now-departed Yan Gomes, but it remains to be seen whether Plawecki or Perez will be the leading man this season.

Indians' Kevin Plawecki: Dealt to Cleveland
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

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.
