Mets' Kevin Plawecki: Competing with d'Arnaud in spring
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mets manager Mickey Callaway said Tuesday that Plawecki will compete with Travis d'Arnaud for playing time behind the plate this spring, Matt Ehalt of The Bergen Record reports.

D'Arnaud is the incumbent No. 1 backstop, but his hold on the top spot on the depth chart likely slipped after Plawecki slashed .303/.411/.474 after the All-Star break last season. To his credit, d'Arnaud also picked up the pace offensively in the second half and offers more power upside than Plawecki, who counts plate discipline as his top skill. Callaway wouldn't reveal his plans for how he plans on divvying out the workload at catcher, but it's likely that a timeshare that slightly favors d'Arnaud will be in place as long as both backstops are healthy and performing well at the dish.

Mets' Kevin Plawecki: Sparks comeback win with homer
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plawecki went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Tuesday's 4-3 win over Atlanta.

His offensive contributions have been few and far between, but Plawecki's third homer of 2017 came at a good time in this game, as it started the Mets' comeback from a 3-0 deficit. Although this was a nice outing for him, the 26-year-old catcher hasn't given fantasy owners any reason to be interested in his services.

Mets' Kevin Plawecki: Set to spend time at first base
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plawecki is expected to start at first base for the second game of the Mets' doubleheader against the Braves, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports.

This move will likely result in Dominic Smith receiving the night off. Since reaching the majors in 2015, Plawecki has yet to appear at a position other than catcher. Over 31 games this season, Plawecki has slashed .247/.330/.376.

Mets' Kevin Plawecki: Hitting fifth Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plawecki will bat fifth and start at catcher Monday against the Phillies.

With Wilmer Flores unavailable due to a broken nose, the Mets don't have many viable middle-of-the-order options remaining on the roster, so Plawecki will slot into a more prominent spot in the lineup than he's received in his more recent appearances. Plawecki has earned the upgrade through his impressive play at late, which could soon allow him to usurp the struggling Travis d'Arnaud for the top spot on the depth chart at catcher. Since being recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas on Aug. 19, Plawecki has posted an .805 OPS while striking out just three times in 31 at-bats.

Mets' Kevin Plawecki: Homers in return to majors
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Plawecki went 1-for-4 with a two-run home run during Saturday's win over Miami.

Plawecki should stick with the Mets for the remainder of the season after Rene Rivera was claimed off waivers by the Cubs. With Travis d'Arnaud likely to receive the bulk of starts behind the plate, Plawecki's fantasy value is likely to remain limited to cavernous settings. Plawecki projects start a couple of games a week to give d'Arnaud a breather, though.
