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 | Kevin Plawecki not starting Tuesday

Tue, 19 May 2015 13:29:47 -0700

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki is not in the starting lineup Tuesday, May 19, against the St. Louis Cardinals.

Fantasy Tip: Plawecki ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is getting a normal night off, and it may be because the game went 14 innings the night before. Sit Plawecki for the night. Anthony Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) has two hits in four at-bats over the last week, both home runs. He may be worth the low-cost play.

Mets | Kevin Plawecki gets day off

Sun, 17 May 2015 07:36:21 -0700

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.

Mets | Kevin Plawecki to sit out again Friday

Thu, 14 May 2015 11:53:57 -0700

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.

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 | Kevin Plawecki has impressed

Wed, 06 May 2015 22:13:57 -0700

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki has impressed so much that manager Terry Collins said Wednesday, May 6, that the team will have to figure out how to get playing time for C Travis d'Arnaud (finger) when he returns. "I certainly don't know when Travis is coming back. The closer he gets - and we'll see how Kevin's playing at the time - I think you've got to give yourself an idea of how this is going to work," Collins said.

Fantasy Tip: Plawecki ($3,200; 6.4% of cap) has been a solid hitter with d'Arnaud sidelined. He has experience playing first base, so Collins could get creative to keep Plawecki in the lineup if he continues to hit.

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 | Kevin Plawecki starting vs. Yankees

Fri, 24 Apr 2015 12:52:13 -0700

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.

Mets | Kevin Plawecki hitting seventh

Tue, 21 Apr 2015 13:53:41 -0700

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.
