Catcher Kevin Plawecki ready to start for Mets
|by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com|
|(4/21/15) Catcher Kevin Plawecki joined the Mets sooner than expected, but the 2012 first-round draft pick is ready to contribute.
Travis d'Arnaud went on the disabled list with a fractured finger, and the call went out to Plawecki.
"Given Travis' injury, it's not an ideal situation, not the way I really expected to come up," Plawecki said, per NJ.com. "But I'm here, I'm happy to be here, and I'm happy to be part of this team."
Manager Terry Collins told Plawecki not to put too much pressure on himself for his debut.
"I talked to him earlier, and I told him the one thing is there's a lot on his plate today, and the main thing is just to be himself," Collins said. "Just go out there and have some fun. We'll help him get through certain situations .. because there's an awful lot to learn in your first day."
Plawecki promoted, d'Arnaud to DL among Mets moves Tuesday

|(4/21/15) As expected, the Mets promoted catcher prospect Kevin Plawecki and reliever Hansel Robles from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.
The Mets also added catcher Travis d'Arnaud (finger) and reliever Jerry Blevins (arm) to the 15-day disabled list, while moving Zack Wheeler (elbow) from the 15-day to 60-day disabled list.

|(4/20/15) Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud was confirmed to have a broken pinky finger Monday after being hit by a pitch in Sunday's game, the team announced. d'Arnaud will be in a splint for the next three weeks and will be re-examined then.
If the finger is healed enough, d'Arnaud will resume baseball activities. He will be placed on the 15-day DL Tuesday and the team will call up catcher Kevin Plawecki to replace him.
Mets' Travis d'Arnaud hit by pitch, fractures hand
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud was removed from Sunday's game against the Marlins after being hit by a pitch. He was then diagnosed with a fractured right hand after being examined, WOR 710 AM reports.
d'Arnaud was struck on the hand, and after being checked out by the trainer, he came out of the game. The catcher went 2 for 3 with an RBI before being replaced. He has hit .317/.356/.537 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 41 at-bats.
d'Arnaud was replaced by Anthony Recker after suffering the injury. Recker could be in for extended playing time while d'Arnaud is on the shelf, or the team could promote Kevin Plawecki to serve as the team's regular catcher and keep Recker in a reserve role.
Mets' Travis d'Arnaud swinging hot bat from No. 2 spot
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(4/19/15) Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud has batted second in three of the four games since David Wright hit the disabled list, and he's 3 for 12 with two home runs and one walk in those games while batting second.
"This is what I want from him. That's why he's hitting second," manager Terry Collins said Saturday, per MLB.com. "He showed us last year he could swing the bat."
d'Arnaud stuggled initially last season and was sent to Triple-A Las Vegas in June, but he was able to make adjustments and deliver a fine offense performance after being recalled. He's continued to shine early in 2015, hitting .289/.317/.526 with two home runs and nine RBI in 38 at-bats.
"I just believe in myself," d'Arnaud said. "I'm able to make adjustments quicker and believe in my thought process at the plate and know it works."
d'Arnaud is back in the No. 2 spot in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Marlins.
|2014 summary: Travis d'Arnaud began his 2014 season much in the same way he finished 2013: producing little and causing owners to fear that he would not live up to his prospect hype. A brief June minor-league demotion appeared to be a game-changer for d'Arnaud, as he batted .272 with 10 home runs and 19 doubles in 69 games after returning to the Mets. His early season slump left his end-of-season batting average at just .242.|
Playing time status: With a strong second half, d'Arnaud has clearly established himself as the Mets' starting catcher. He should receive regular at-bats throughout the season, even though catching prospect Kevin Plawecki is close to major league-ready.
2015 outlook: As a power-hitting catcher who won't depress your team's batting average, d'Arnaud has graduated to the ranks of No. 1 catchers. He is clearly a top 10 option who merits a mid-round pick in standard mixed leagues.
