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. Nov 10 - 5:07 PM

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.
