ANTHONY RECKER RUMORS

Mets Considering Demoting Plawecki, Starting Recker

According to Joel Sherman of the New York Post, the Mets have considered demoting Kevin Plawecki to Triple-A, calling up Anthony Recker, and using Recker as the everyday catcher. Plawecki, 24, was thrust into the starting role when Travis d’Arnaud was initially hurt earlier this season. In 43 games, Plawecki has really struggled, batting .228/.277/.309 with five doubles and two...

The Ass End

Apologies to those who clicked on this thinking that this was an Anthony Recker manifesto. But being on the ass end of things is how I’ve been feeling a lot lately. I want to put that out there as a disclaimer for those that think what I’m about to complain about is just sour grapes because this affects me. And you might think I will come across as whiny, and you’re entitled...

New York Mets: as team gets healthier what’s the next move?

The New York Mets have been decimated by injuries for most of this season so far. Despite the losses of some of the most important members of the team, the Mets have managed to put together a solid season, with a record of 24-18 and only half a game out of first place in the division despite an offense that goes through lengthy cold spells. Though the absences have been lengthy...

Kevin Plawecki is ready to replace Anthony Recker

First off, kudos to Anthony Recker on a three-run blast that essentially won the game for the Mets on Monday. Now onto why he needs to go. It is a generally accepted idea that managers don’t expect great things from their backup catchers. What they need is someone who can handle the defense and who knows the pitching staff. Offensive production is usually just icing on the cake...

New York Mets Catcher Anthony Recker Breaks Bat Over Knee (Video)

Anthony Recker Proving To Be Solid Backup Catcher

When Anthony Recker made the Opening Day roster in 2013, I thought to myself: “Who on earth is this guy?” The now 30 year old backstop for the Mets is making a case for staying in Flushing for the near future. Anthony Recker had played in only 27 games in his major league career, in stints with the Cubs and the Athletics, before signing with the Mets before the 2013 season. Early...

Is more Anthony Recker a good thing?

Anthony Recker is a big man with a ton of natural power. When he crushes a home run over the left field wall, it can be easy to think a guy like that needs more playing time. Add in that he’s improved himself into a very well-rounded defensive backstop while Travis d’Arnaud has struggled both at and behind the plate this year, and the case for Recker getting more playing time...

Mets Have Catching Concerns

Of all the New York Mets’ questions entering spring training, perhaps the most intriguing is at catcher, where an inexperienced Travis d’Arnaud is the starter without a veteran mentor. Last year, he had John Buck. However, when d’Arnaud was injured, the job became Buck’s with young Anthony Recker as back-up. By the time d’Arnaud was ready for Citi Field, Buck was heading...
