Mets C Kevin Plawecki is confident that a 50/50 platoon with him and Travis d'Arnaud is sustainable over an entire season.
"Yeah, I do think so," Plawecki told SNY's Steve Gelbs. "I think it's important for both of us to stay healthy and just kind of giving eachother a break every couple of days is nice. We kind of feed off eachother as well. We like to compete against eachother."
The 26-year-old Plawecki finished the season strong after being called up from Triple-A Las Vegas, hitting .364/.440/.591 in August and .283/.406/.434 in September. Overall in 2017, he hit .260/.364/.400 in 37 games.
D'Arnaud also finished the season on a high note, hitting .297/.343/.656 in 64 at-bats in September.
"I think more this past year was mental adjustments," Plawecki said. "Working on the swing over the last couple of years, mechanically, that was pretty much in place after my year and a half in. We changed a lot of things."
Plawecki also said he worked learning how to deal with the New York media and keeping his mind clear when at the plate.
Regarding handling a staff, he's confident in the relationship he and d'Arnaud have with the pitchers.
"I think any given day, whoever's back there behind the plate, those pitchers are comfortable with us," Plawecki siad. "And we've got that good rapport with them."
