RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2018

Subscribe now to see our 2018 outlook.

2017

Plawecki suffered through a rocky rookie campaign in 2015, and although some believed he'd be better served getting everyday experience in the minors, he made the Opening Day roster as the backup catcher. An early-season injury to Travis d'Arnaud seemingly paved the way for a regular role, but Plawecki's struggles against big league pitching persisted, leading to a timeshare with Rene Rivera and eventually a demotion back to the minors. The 25-year-old did well with Triple-A Las Vegas, hitting .300 with an OPS of .832, but it just hasn't carried over yet to the majors. On the plus side, he demonstrated a decent eye at the plate and will likely improve upon a low .255 BABIP, and he's a solid pitch framer. However, it's hard to ignore Plawecki's horrid MLB numbers (58 wRC+ in 409 plate appearances). Rivera was brought back to serve as d'Arnaud's backup this season, so Plawecki should get everyday work at Triple-A until a need arises at the big league level.

2016

The Mets turned to Plawecki after Travis d'Arnaud went down with an injury in late April, and the results in 73 games with the big club suggest he was not ready. His plate discipline unraveled against major-league pitching, as Plawecki struck out at a 23.3% clip while walking just 6.6% of the time, leading to a .576 OPS in 258 plate appearances. He had not posted a strikeout rate over 14 percent at any of his stops in the minors. Things only got worse down the stretch as Plawecki limped to a .148 average over the final month of the season (4-for-27) and did not log a single at-bat during the team's postseason run. He was able to offset his lack of offensive production to a certain extent in real life with his ability behind the dish, and the Mets may have Plawecki split time with d'Arnaud this season. Plawecki's ceiling is capped by his modest power, and the floor he showed in 2015 will likely keep him only on the margins of mixed-league consideration.

2015

As a catcher with close proximity to the big leagues and the defense to stick behind the plate, Plawecki has some value. After being drafted with the 35th pick in the 2012 draft, Plawecki has hit at every level, sporting a .295/.372/.439 slash line in two-plus seasons in the minor leagues. He had 11 home runs and 24 doubles in 419 plate appearances between Double-A Binghamton and Triple-A Las Vegas in 2014, so thereís a chance that he could offer 15-homer pop over a full season as a big leaguer. He will return to Las Vegas to start the 2015 campaign, as he played just 43 games at that level last season, but he may be blocked when he is ready for a promotion to the majors. Travis díArnaud is the teamís catcher of the future, but Plawecki should eventually displace Anthony Recker as díArnaudís backup.

2014

Plawecki, selected as first-round supplemental pick in 2012 out of Purdue, had a breakthrough 2013 campaign. He posted a .311/.388/.492 line with six home runs and 43 RBI in 65 games at Low-A Savannah to earn a promotion to High-A St. Lucie. Plawecki continued his fine play at St. Lucie and finished the season with a 42:53 BB:K in 521 plate appearances, and that steady eye at the plate has been a hallmark of his career. He is solid defensively, receiving pitches well and calling games effectively, but is just mediocre in terms of throwing out runners. Plawecki should hit for average in his career and provide decent power, and he will likely start 2014 back at St. Lucie.
