New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against the New York Yankees Friday, April 24.
Fantasy Tip: Plawecki will be added to the FantasyScore player pool shortly, and the rookie has a shot at taking over regular catching duties for the Metropolitans. He is worth a look in cavernous mixed and NL-only leagues, but his value is fleeting, as Travis D'Arnaud is likely only four to six weeks from returning.

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki is batting seventh in the lineup Tuesday, April 21, against the Atlanta Braves.
Fantasy Tip: Plawecki has no FantasyScore value because he was just called up in the last couple days. The team is high on Plawecki and there was talk he could start after Travis d'Arnaud fractured his hand. Watch Plawecki's progress.

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.

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki could gain some starting duties with C Travis d'Arnaud (hand) on the disabled list.
Fantasy Tip: Plawecki ordinarily would have little fantasy value, but his value suddenly climbed due to the injury to d'Arnaud. There are many in the organization that are high on Plawecki's talents, however, so wait and see how he does before picking him up in daily leagues.
