Mets rookie catcher Kevin Plawecki was removed from the starting lineup for Tuesday night's game against the San Francisco Giants due to continued dizziness. Plawecki had missed the first two games of the team's weekend series against Arizona due to dizziness caused by a viral infection, but he returned and went one-for-three with a walk in the Mets 6-3 win over the Diamondbacks on Sunday.
Plawecki had been affected by a case of vertigo last year during his time with Triple-A Las Vegas. He visited with a doctor in Phoenix on Friday and he was assured that this bout of dizziness was not related to vertigo.
With Travis d'Arnaud set to return from the disabled list, Plawecki may have seen his last action with the Mets for the time being. In his first look in the major leagues, Plawecki has hit .211/.256/.312. Assuming he's healthy, returning to Triple-A makes the most sense for Plawecki since d'Arnaud will assume everyday catching duties and Plawecki could use the everyday at-bats that will be available to him in Las Vegas to further his development.
