Is Mets prospect Kevin Plawecki ready for majors in 2015?

The 35th overall pick in the 2012 draft, Kevin Plawecki already had a positive reputation when he came to spring training with the Mets. When he joins them next February it will only have grown after a booming 2014 season. Plawecki hit .309 with an .825 OPS over two levels (AA and AAA) of the Mets organization. He began as a prospect outside the top 100 lists before this season...

For Now, Sandy Happy To Have Both Plawecki and d’Arnaud

While discussing the Sterling Award winners on Monday at Citi Field, general manager Sandy Alderson was asked how the organization would handle the potential logjam at catcher in 2015 with the emergence of Kevin Plawecki, who the front office has loved since taking him with the 35th overall pick in the 2012 draft, and incumbent catcher Travis d’Arnaud, who has been coming on strong...

How Will Plawecki and d’Arnaud Play Out In 2015?

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...

Catching Fire: Here Comes Kevin Plawecki

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. Flash Forward: It’s 2013… The Mets have John Buck leading the MLB team in more ways than one, Travis d’Arnaud as the anointed second coming of Mike Piazza...
