Mets purchased the contract of C Kevin Plawecki from Triple-A Las Vegas.

With Travis d'Arnaud (finger) injured, Plawecki is being called up to serve as the Mets' primary catcher. Known for his excellent contact ability, the 24-year-old has a .292/.368/.435 batting line in the minors to go along with a 129/98 K/BB ratio. He's worth a try in two-catcher mixed fantasy leagues.
Apr 21 - 8:48 AM

Mets recalled RHP Hansel Robles from Triple-A Las Vegas.

He'll take the place of Jerry Blevins (arm) on the active roster. The 24-year-old has mostly pitched as a starter in the minors, posting a 3.11 ERA with 8.1 K/9 and 2.6 BB/9, but he'll pitch in middle relief during his first stint in the majors.
Apr 21 - 8:43 AM

Mets placed LHP Jerry Blevins on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to May 20, with a distal radius fracture of his left arm.

Blevins will wear a splint on his arm for the next six weeks before being re-evaluated. He'll still need time to rebuild arm strength, so it sounds like he'll miss at least the next two months. The southpaw suffered the injury when he was hit by a comebacker on Sunday. It's a tough blow, as he has retired all 15 batters he has faced so far this season.
Apr 21 - 8:40 AM

Mets placed C Travis d'Arnaud on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 20, with a fracture of his right little finger.

D'Arnaud suffered the injury when he was hit in the hand by a pitch on Sunday. The plan calls for him to wear a splint for the next three weeks, after which he could be cleared for baseball activities if he's pain-free. He has a chance to rejoin the Mets by the end of May if there are no setbacks, which is good news under the circumstances. Prospect Kevin Plawecki has been called up and will get most of the playing time behind the plate.
Apr 21 - 8:34 AM

Mets transferred RHP Zack Wheeler from the 15-day disabled to the 60-day disabled list.

The move clears a spot for Kevin Plawecki on the Mets' 40-man roster. Wheeler underwent Tommy John surgery last month and also had his flexor pronator repaired. The expectation is that he'll be out through at least the first couple of months of the 2016 season.
Apr 21 - 8:30 AM

Luke Gregerson picked up his third save of the season, closing out the Astros' 7-5 win over the Mariners on Monday.

Gregerson brought the tying run to the plate after issuing a two-out walk to Kyle Seager, but he got Seth Smith to strike out swinging to end the ballgame. Gregerson remains unscored upon while converting all three save opportunities with a 7/1 K/BB ratio in seven innings.
Apr 21 - 1:46 AM

Hisashi Iwakuma turned in his third consecutive mediocre start, giving up four runs in 5 1/3 innings in Monday's loss to the Astros.

Iwakuma has been rather home run prone to start the year. He allowed two more on Monday night, giving him five in 16 1/3 innings to start the season. Overall, he gave up five hits, walked none, and struck out three. Iwakuma owns a 6.61 ERA and he has a good shot at lowering it as his next start comes against the Twins at home over the weekend.
Apr 21 - 1:43 AM

Asher Wojciechowski got a no-decision in Monday's win against the Mariners, yielding four runs in four innings.

The right-hander allowed a bunch of base runners, as the Mariners racked up eight hits and drew two walks. Wojciechowski struck out six on the evening. Getting through the Mariners' tough lineup without allowing any home runs is an achievement at least. He'll get the Athletics on Oakland in his next start.
