1 year agoOn Saturday against the Chicago Cubs, New York Mets catcher Kevin Plawecki will get a taste at a somewhat unfamiliar position -- first base. Apparently the reasoning is to try and pack more of a punch in their lineup against left-handed pitchers, and the Cubbies will be starting southpaw Mike Montgomery. The move makes some degree of sense, as the only other first base options for the Mets are Adrian Gonzalez and Jay Bruce, who are both left-handed. For what it’s worth, Plawecki did play two games at first base in 2017, but the other 153 games in his career have been spent at backstop. If the Mets want to make this a strategy moving forward, it’s possible Plawecki gains first base eligibility at some point. Unfortunately, his bat doesn’t produce enough to carry much value at the position even if he does become eligible.--John Smith
