Rene Rivera will continue to see playing time when Travis d'Arnaud returns from the disabled list, Mets manager Terry Collins said.
D'Arnaud continued his rehab assignment on Saturday when he made a pinch-hit appearance triple-A Las Vegas, and he is scheduled to catch a full game for the 51's on Sunday.
"When Travis gets back, we'll have to make some decisions, but obviously Rene Rivera has earned a spot, has earned a job catching, and we're going to play him as much as possible," Collins said.
"And yet Travis has had some huge nights for us offensively. We're pretty lucky having two guys who are offensive threats behind the plate. But by no means are we going to sit Rene Rivera down and not have him play much."
D'Arnaud was placed on the 10-day disabled list earlier this month with a bone bruise on his right wrist. In 22 games this season, d'Arnaud has hit .203 with four home runs and 16 RBI.
Meanwhile, Rivera is hitting .308 with 14 RBI in 24 games this season.
