Mets C Travis d'Arnaud nearing a return from DL


by Ruben Palacios | Staff Writer

D'Arnaud has been on the disabled list since April 19, when he suffered a fractured pinkie after being hit by a pitch from Marlins reliever A.J. Ramos.

D'Arnaud was hitting .317/.356/.537 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 41 at-bats before his injury.

by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(5/22/2015) Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud took batting practice on Friday, for the first time since going on the disabled list, per ESPN. .

Mets C Kevin Plawecki making decisions difficult for manager


by Jason Lempert | Staff Writer
(5/21/2015) With Mets starting catcher Travis d'Arnaud getting closer to returning from the disabled list, the Mets' front office is going to have a decision to make about fellow young backstop Kevin Plawecki

Plawecki has been receiving the bulk of the playing time behind the plate since d'Arnaud was placed on the disabled list after suffering a broken finger on April 19. He's performed admirably in his first stint as a Major League catcher. He's batting just .217 with two homers so far, but his work on defense and with the Mets' pitching staff has gotten the attention of his skipper, according to the New York Post.

“He’s done great, he has played very well,” manager Terry Collins said before Wednesday night’s game. “He’s caught the ball very well, he’s blocked the ball very well, he’s actually thrown better. He threw out (speedy Marlins second baseman) Dee Gordon, and that’s a big assignment for anybody."

But with d'Arnaud nearing a rehab assignment, a decision is going to have to be made whether or not to send Plawecki back down to Triple-A when the time comes.

“That is going to be a tough call,” Collins said. “When Travis comes back, you are looking at two guys who both should be playing. That’s hard to do when both have to be out there.”

Catcher Kevin Plawecki ready to start for Mets


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com

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."

"One of the things is to be aggressive early. We've seen what he can do when he hits. You've got to coincide that with making sure your pitch selection is pretty good, but after the second half last year I think he has confidence in his own ability."

We've got all the confidence in the world. When that confidence fades, we'll find somebody else.
