Kevin Plawecki's big league debut resulted in a pair of hits. The young catcher got some help from injured backstop Travis d'Arnaud on Monday.

David Wright is close to resuming baseball activity and should only miss a total of about three weeks. Bobby Parnell struggled in his most recent rehab appearance, however.
