Nats backup catcher last couple years. That said, it's a perfectly fine depth move. Minor league deal and he becomes our #3 catcher, with Nido #4 (cause Nido might not be ready).

Plaw, being out of options and d'Arnaud will obviously open the season as the catching tandem. Plaw had a good September and he's a contact hitter with a low K rate, though, at times, it seems that it's a lot of weak contact.

Lobi is a solid/average defender and low batting average/weak bat type. His bat was awful last year, .525 OPS, but he also had a .194 babip.

He's a good bounce back candidate for .600 OPS...

Mets not scared to open the vault when the right player comes along. Shrewd move that both hurts the top team in our division and provides strength to ours.

Plawecki had better hit .480 in Spring Training.

I am very excited for acquiring a player whose low floor is equal to his ceiling. Anyhoo, he is ok for AAA and if either of TDA or Plaw get hurt for a SHORT time.
