Plawecki, 27, has been a back-up for the Mets over the past four seasons. He’s light with the bat, owning a career .218/.308/.330 triple-slash line in 804 plate appearances. However, he plays good defense and handles a pitching staff well, according to many in the know. Plawecki would make a good back-up elsewhere.
Plawecki is entering his first of four years of arbitration eligibility. MLB Trade Rumors projects him to take home a $1.3 million salary in 2019. A relatively cheap catcher with four years of team control would certainly be attractive to more than a handful of teams.
