New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki is not in the starting lineup Thursday, July 2. C Johnny Monell is doing the catching and is hitting seventh against Chicago Cubs SP Jake Arrieta.
Fantasy Tip: Monell ($2,000, 4.0% of cap) is seldom used and doesn't deserve your attention on FantasyScore.

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (elbow) was placed on the 15-day disabled list because of an elbow injury. The team also recalled C Johnny Monell from Class AAA Las Vegas.
Fantasy Tip: It is not known how long d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) will be out, so owners should look for an update on his timetable. Kevin Plawecki ($2,600, 5.2% of cap) could see most of the starts until d'Arnaud returns with Monell receiving a handful of starts. Neither catcher is a great option for owners on FantasyScore.

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki will get another day off Sunday, May 17, against the Milwaukee Brewers. C Johnny Monell will start and bat seventh.
Fantasy Tip: Monell ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) is a left-handed batter who'll go up against RHP Wily Peralta. Monell has just one hit out of eight plate appearances, and he has struck out 37.5% of the time. FantasyScore owners need to look away.

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki will sit out again Friday, May 15, in favor of C Johnny Monell, who will be receiving his first major league start against the Milwaukee Brewers, according to manager Terry Collins. Monell is 1-for-4 with two RBI off the bench so far. Plawecki is hitting only .220 with a home run and eight RBI in 17 games since taking over the starting catching duties.
Fantasy Tip: Stay away from Plawecki ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) for the time being. Monell ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) isn't much better of an option for FantasyScore users while going up against Brewers starter Kyle Lohse Friday.

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.
