Plawecki, 27, is about two weeks from returning, according to Alderson. He has been sidelined since the middle of April with a fracture in his hand.
His tandem partner, Travis d’Arnaud is out for the remainder of the season with a torn UCL.
Getting Plawecki back will give the Mets a big boost behind the dish.
In seven games this year, he has hit .150/.393/.200 with one RBI. Last year, in 118 plate appearances he hit .260/ 364/ .400. This includes a very strong finish to his season.
