Sandy Alderson said the Mets were content to bring back their two young catchers.
The Mets’ commitment to the young catcher Travis d’Arnaud, who continues to struggle at bat, is one of the reasons this looks like yet another transition year for the team.
Kevin Plawecki, replacing the injured catcher Travis d’Arnaud, went 2 for 4 and scored two runs as the Mets won their ninth straight, routing the Braves to improve to 11-3.
Plawecki, playing for the injured Travis d’Arnaud, had four hits in San Diego over the weekend and a home run in Los Angeles on Monday.
The Mets chose Kevin Plawecki, a top college catcher, 35th over all in 2012. About six months later, they acquired Travis d’Arnaud, then one of baseball’s best young catching prospects, in a trade.
