However, the young backstop has been hitting better in the month of June, batting at a .296 clip through 11 games this month. 

Manager Terry Collins said he wants Plawecki to be behind the plate for Jacob deGrom on Thursday afternoon, so he will get the night off on Wednesday, according to ESPN.com.

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.”

Johnny Monell was brought up from Triple-A Las Vegas to serve as a lefty bat off the bench, but he's starting for the second time in three games Sunday. Plawecki, who homered Saturday, has hit .226/.269/.371 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 62 at-bats.
