Mets | Kevin Plawecki sitting out

Sun, 24 May 2015 08:46:58 -0700

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki is not in the starting lineup Sunday, May 24. C Anthony Recker will be the starting catcher for the Mets.

Fantasy Tip: Plawecki ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) probably is just receiving a day off and should return soon. Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting only .200 in 25 at-bats this season and is not a great option on FantasyScore.

Mets | Anthony Recker goes deep twice

Thu, 14 May 2015 15:09:41 -0700

New York Mets C Anthony Recker hit two solo home runs in a losing effort against the Chicago Cubs Thursday, May 14. Recker went 2-for-4 in the game with two strikeouts, and his average now sits at .238 on the season.

Fantasy Tip: With Kevin Plawecki slumping, perhaps Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) will see more playing time in the near future. Even after his two-homer performance Thursday, though, he'll continue to be a low-end catcher play for daily gamers.

Mets | Kevin Plawecki not playing

Thu, 14 May 2015 09:51:30 -0700

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki is receiving a day off Thursday, May 14. C Anthony Recker is behind the dish and hitting seventh in the batting order against Chicago Cubs SP Travis Wood.

Fantasy Tip: Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is hitting just .176 (3-for-17) in a backup role, and he should be avoided at FantasyScore today.

Mets | NYM using three catchers for now

Tue, 05 May 2015 17:57:07 -0700

The New York Mets promoted C Johnny Monell from Triple-A Las Vegas Tuesday, May 5, and the club will use three catchers for now. Monell joins Cs Kevin Plawecki and Anthony Recker.

Fantasy Tip: Monell might get a start behind the dish, so FantasyScore owners might find him useful as a low-end option when punting the catcher spot to save salary to spread elsewhere. Plawecki ($3,200; 6.4% of cap) has proven to be the most useful FantasyScore option of the trio while Travis d'Arnaud (hand) has been out.

Mets | Kevin Plawecki taking day off

Tue, 28 Apr 2015 11:39:17 -0700

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, April 28. C Anthony Recker is starting behind the dish and hitting eighth in the batting order against Miami Marlins SP David Phelps.

Fantasy Tip: Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is a weak FantasyScore selection today at FantasyScore, especially while residing at the bottom of New York's lineup.

Mets | Anthony Recker has bone spur

Wed, 22 Apr 2015 22:28:10 -0700

New York Mets C Anthony Recker (elbow) has a bone spur in the back of his right elbow, but the team said Wednesday, April 22, that Recker is able to play. The spur might be removed after the season.

Fantasy Tip: Recker sees occasional starts, and he is a solid FantasyScore value at $1,600 (or 3.2% of cap) when in the lineup. It won't take much to exceed salary expectations, and he'll save you plenty of money to spread across other more valuable positions.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud going on DL

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 09:05:48 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (hand) will be placed on the disabled list after fracturing his right hand Sunday, April 19, according to manager Terry Collins. C Kevin Plawecki will be called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to take d'Arnaud's roster spot, and Plawecki will take over the starting catching duties, with C Anthony Recker as the backup. It's unknown how long d'Arnaud will be out until after he's examined by a hand specialist Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: It's a shame for d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) owners, as he was off to a fine start in 2015. Plawecki will be making his major league debut for the Mets. He hit .309 with 11 home runs in 376 at-bats in multiple minor league stops in 2014. He'll be a cheap catching option at FantasyScore, but no more than a dice roll as he acclimates to big league pitching.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud sitting vs. Fish

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:09:52 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup against the Miami Marlins Friday, April 17. C Anthony Recker is starting behind the plate and batting eighth Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) from your fantasy lineups Friday. Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a low-priced flier, and hitting in front of the pitcher does him no favors. FantasyScore players should likely aim higher.

Mets | Could keep Taylor Teagarden as backup catcher

Sat, 12 Jul 2014 10:22:55 -0700

The New York Mets could decide to keep C Taylor Teagarden (hamstring) as their backup catcher after his rehab assignment is over because C Anthony Recker still has an option remaining. Teagarden would have to clear waivers and accept an assignment to Triple-A Las Vegas to remain in the organization if the Mets keep Recker.
