Mets | Kevin Plawecki back in starting role?

Tue, 23 Jun 2015 15:07:35 -0700

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki should receive the majority of starts behind the plate for the foreseeable future, after C Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list Tuesday, June 23.

Fantasy Tip: Plawecki ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is hitting just .227 on the season, with two home runs, nine runs scored and 13 RBI through 129 plate appearances. It will take a couple of impressive days at the plate and an extremely favorable matchup for FantasyScore owners to consider Plawecki.

Mets | Kevin Plawecki batting sixth

Sun, 21 Jun 2015 13:34:09 -0700

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki is hitting sixth in the lineup Sunday, June 21, against the Atlanta Braves.

Fantasy Tip: Plawecki ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) is in the lineup in place of Travis d'Arnaud, who suffered a hyperextended left elbow and is day-to-day. Plawecki demonstrated his ability to play earlier this season, so he's a safe bet for your lineup.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud sitting vs. Braves

Fri, 19 Jun 2015 13:56:38 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup Friday, June 19. C Kevin Plawecki is starting behind the plate and batting eighth against Atlanta Braves SP Matt Wisler Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) from your fantasy lineups Friday. He has gone without a hit over his last two games, so a breather might kick-start his bat. Plawecki ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) offers little upside with a .212/.262/.310 slash line over 122 plate appearances this season. FantasyScore players should view him as nothing more than a desperation source of cap relief.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud not starting Monday

Mon, 15 Jun 2015 14:02:26 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup against Toronto Blue Jays SP Mark Buehrle Monday, June 15. C Kevin Plawecki will be the starting catcher and is batting eighth in the lineup.

Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is not ready to play every day, so he will still see some days off. Plawecki ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has picked up one hit in each of his last three hits but is hitting only .211 this season and may not be a great option on FantasyScore.

Mets | Kevin Plawecki will see playing time

Sun, 14 Jun 2015 11:12:41 -0700

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki will continue to see playing time, because C Travis d'Arnaud (finger, wrist) will be eased back into an everyday role, according to manager Terry Collins. Collins said the team will reevaluate the situation once d'Arnaud is more comfortable in his return.

Fantasy Tip: Plawecki ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) probably will see a few starts a week but will not see regular playing time. Owners on FantasyScore could consider using Plawecki against certain matchups moving forward.

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki (illness) was scratched from the lineup Tuesday, June 9, as he deals with more dizziness. C Anthony Recker is starting.

Fantasy Tip: Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) profiles as a desperation sleeper play on FantasyScore. The backup backstop is batting only .156 (7-for-45) with two home runs and three RBI in 2015.

Mets | Kevin Plawecki dealing with illness

Fri, 05 Jun 2015 16:16:31 -0700

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki (illness) is experiencing vertigo-like symptoms. Plawecki dealt with similar symptoms last season.

Fantasy Tip: It is not known how long Plawecki ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) will be sidelined, so owners should look for any updates. Anthony Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) likely will see a majority of the starts with Plawecki out but is not a great option on FantasyScore.
