Plawecki, Robles to be recalled; Wheeler moving to 60-day DL


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/20/2015) The Mets will promote catcher Kevin Plawecki and reliever Hansel Robles from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday, the team announced Monday. The team will also transfer Zack Wheeler (elbow) to the 60-day disabled list.

Plawecki and Robles are being called up due to injuries to Travis d'Arnaud and Jerry Blevins. D'Arnaud is expected to miss at least a month due to a metacarpal fracture of the little finger of his right hand. Blevins has a distal radius fracture of the left arm and will miss more than six weeks.

Plawecki is considered the 63rd-best prospect in baseball by MLB.com and Baseball America. He is batting .216 (8 for 37) with one triple, two doubles and six RBI in nine games for Triple-A Las Vegas. 

Robles is 1-0 with a 0.00 ERA in five relief outings for Las Vegas. He has 10 strikeouts in 7 2/3 innings.


Mets expected to call up C Kevin Plawecki


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) The Mets are expected to promote Triple-A catcher Kevin Plawecki after Travis d'Arnaud suffered a fractured hand Sunday, the New York Daily News reports.

"Can he handle it here?" manager Terry Collins said after Sunday's win, his team's eighth straight. "We’ll likely find out."

Plawecki was pulled from his minor-league game early Sunday, all but confirming that he'll be on his way up to New York to serve as the team's No. 1 catcher while d'Arnaud is sidelined. Plawecki is just 8 for 35 this season but hit .309/.365/.460 with 11 home runs and 64 RBI in 376 at-bats between Double-A and Triple-A last season.


Mets' Travis d'Arnaud hit by pitch, fractures hand


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(4/19/2015) 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 preparing to have too much of a good thing at catcher


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com
(9/16/2014) The Mets might have an overcrowding problem behind the plate next season, given the progress Travis d'Arnaud and prospect Kevin Plawecki have shown this season.

"If their potential starts to converge at the major league level, and it warrants major league time, then we'll have to make a decision," manager Sandy Alderson told the New York Daily News Tuesday. "But in the meantime, we're happy to have both of them. But Kevin has made a lot of progress, and obviously Travis has done well the second half of this season."

Alderson does not think either player is likely to be used in a backup or reserve role. d'Arnaud is hitting .277/.321/.480 in 177 at-bats since the All-Star break, while Plawecki is hitting .309/.365/.460 in 101 minor-league games while reaching Triple-A. 


Kevin Plawecki expected to be promoted to Triple-A 'very soon'


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/23/2014) A team source told the New York Daily News that a promotion for Mets catcher prospect Kevin Plawecki from Double-A Binghamton to Triple-A Las Vegas will happen "very soon." A move could coincide with the Mets' anticipated recall of catcher Travis d'Arnaud from Las Vegas this week.

Plawecki, a 2012 first-round pick, is batting .329 with a .376 on-base percentage, .491 slugging percentage and .867 OPS in 57 games for Binghamton. He has six home runs, 18 doubles, 43 RBI, 32 runs, 14 walks and 27 strikeouts as well.


Report: Mets continue to monitor shortstop market


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/12/2014) Mets shortstop Ruben Tejada's shaky play this spring has renewed concerns for management he will not be able to handle the starting shortstop job. Therefore, the Mets are continuing to monitor the shortstop market, according to the New York Daily News.

A team source said Tuesday the Mets continue to scout Mariners infielder Nick Franklin, as they decide whether or not Franklin can play shortstop well enough to justify his offensive potential and giving up a starting pitcher prospect for him.

Also, a source for another team told the Daily News the Mets are also monitoring the Diamondbacks' shortstop competition, and "could jump in" to make a trade for Didi Gregorius or Chris Owings before spring training ends. Diamondbacks general manager Kevin Towers said recently he would consider trading one of his young shortstops, ideally for a top catching prospect, which would likely be Mets catcher Kevin Plawecki.

There is also free-agent shortstop Stephen Drew, but there is no indication from Drew's agent, Scott Boras, that his client would be willing to sign a bargain-type contract.


Mets make several roster moves Monday


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(3/10/2014) The Mets made several roster moves Monday, which included optioning Erik Goeddel, Steven Matz, Josh Edgin and Wilfredo Tovar to the minors. Logan Verrett, Adam Kolarek, Chasen Bradford, Dustin Lawley, Brandon Nimmo, Cory Vaughn, Danny Muno and Kevin Plawecki were also reassigned to minor-league camp.

Mets manager doesn't see Kevin Plawecki changing positions


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/23/2014) Mets manager Terry Collins said he's eager to see catcher prospect Kevin Plawecki in action this spring, according to ESPN.

"I'd like to see him catch, because just watching him in BP, he has a clue," Collins said. "He squares it up pretty good. And it's loud. So I'm real impressed with what I've seen at the plate. I'd like to see him catch and throw a little bit. You know, this guy came from a major college program. Player of the Year in the Big Ten, that's a pretty big statement."

Plawecki was a standout offensive player in his first full pro season in 2013, batting .305 with a .390 on-base percentage, .448 slugging percentage, .838 OPS, eight home runs, 38 doubles and 80 RBI in 125 games between two levels of Class A.

Collins sees Plawecki long term as a catcher and not shifting to another defensive position.

"I think he's going to be a catcher, and I think he's going to be a good offensive catcher," Collins said. "If you can produce your own catchers, those are big."


Hitting 'a bonus' for Kevin Plawecki


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(7/17/2013) After batting .314 in 65 games for low Class A Savannah, Mets catcher prospect Kevin Plawecki is off to a stellar start for high Class A St. Lucie, batting .365 in 21 games.

"I got off to a hot start, and I've been able to carry it on from there," Plawecki told MLB.com.

The 2012 first-round pick has one home run, six doubles and 18 RBI with St. Lucie. For the season, he is batting .326 with a .492 slugging percentage, .891 OPS, one triple, seven home runs, 30 doubles and 61 RBI in 86 games.

Plawecki has improved his status after entering the season ranked as the Mets' 17th-best prospect by MLB.com.

"I work hard on my catching," Plawecki said. "Being a good receiver and establishing a relationship with your pitchers are important. For a catcher, hitting is a bonus."


Kevin Plawecki promoted to high Class A


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(6/20/2013) Mets catcher prospect Kevin Plawecki was promoted from low Class A Savannah to high Class A St. Lucie Thursday, according to ESPN. Plawecki hit .314 with a .494 slugging percentage, .884 OPS, six home runs, 24 doubles and 43 RBI in 65 games for Savannah.

However, Plawecki's numbers gradually declined after a torrid April. He hit .391 with four homers, 12 doubles and 20 RBI in 23 April games. He then hit .300 with two homers, 10 doubles and 19 RBI in 29 May games. Finally, he hit .208 with no homers, two doubles and four RBI in 13 June games.
