Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Wednesday that catchers Travis d'Arnaud and Kevin Plawecki could see playing time at other positions this spring.
The most logical fit is at first base, as Wilmer Flores is the only backup to Lucas Duda at this point. Plawecki has some experience at first base in the minors, but d'Arnaud's exposure there has been very limited. Still, given d'Arnaud's injury history, adding some versatility wouldn't be the worst idea. Feb 3 - 1:43 PM

Mets assistant general manager John Ricco said Tuesday that Travis d'Arnaud and Kevin Plawecki could split time at catcher next season.

It's hard to imagine the club would consider a true split, but being proactive with d'Arnaud might not be the worst thing since he's had many injury issues in the past. Ricco added the Mets could eventually consider a position switch for either d'Arnaud or Plawecki, although it's not being discussed at this point.

The Mets don't plan to expose Travis d'Arnaud or Kevin Plawecki to a new position this offseason.

This comes on the heels of a report from Marc Carig of Newsday that there is some thought with the Mets that d'Arnaud should get some exposure to another position. This would presumably include first base or a corner outfield position. Nothing is considered imminent, but the Mets could reexamine the situation depending on what they do during the offseason.
