Plawecki was acquired Sunday from the New York Mets. He built $557,471 last period, when he batted .201 with seven homers and a job-higher 30 RBIs.
Cleveland essential yet another skilled catcher immediately after buying and selling prospect Francisco Mejia at last year’s trade deadline and sending All-Star Yan Gomes to Washington in December. Plawecki could share time with Roberto Perez.
The 27-year-outdated Plawecki expended 6 months last period on the disabled list with a damaged still left hand. He threw out 23 percent (16-for-70) of potential base stealers and experienced two four-RBI online games.
Following signing Wilson Ramos, the Mets didn’t have any roster space for Plawecki, who was out of choices.
