The Scoop: Kevin Plawecki and the state of Mets catching

Flash Back: It’s 2012… Josh Thole and Mike Nickeas represent the core of Met catchers.  The Mets have poorly ranked catchers in the minors and only Camden Maron (Thole Jr.) stood much of a chance of making an impact.

Mets Minors: Building from the bottom up – Kevin Plawecki

Kevin Plawecki:  Plawecki was drafted 35th overall by the Mets in 2012 and he was sent to play in Brooklyn.  The college catcher proved to be a solid (albeit safe) pick as he turned in good (if not overwhelming) numbers.  Plawecki managed a triple slash of .250/.345/.384 which is respectable over his 61 game debut in professional sports. Scouting: At 6’2” and 215 pounds it...
