Cleveland Indians acquire catcher Kevin Plawecki in trade with New York Mets

After acquiring J.D. Davis from the Houston Astros, the Mets continued a busy Sunday of deals by sending catcher Kevin Plawecki to the Cleveland Indians for right-handed pitcher Walker Lockett and minor-league infielder Sam Haggerty.

Plawecki, 27, is coming off of his longest season in the majors to date.

The Tribe acquired Kevin Plawecki from the Mets and sent pitcher Walker Lockett and infielder Sam Haggerty to NY. Plawecki became expendable to the Mets when they signed Wilson Ramos in free agency last month, and Sunday's trade leaves them with three catchers - Ramos, Travis d'Arnaud and Tomas Nido - on their 40-man roster. Haggerty is a 24-year-old who briefly rose to Triple-A last season.

For the Pacers , Ike Anigbogu is out with a sore right knee and Myles Turner is questionable with a sore right shoulder. Leonard scored 30 points in the win, making it 16 consecutive games with at least 20 points, (Nov. 29 - January 5).

The Cleveland Indians have made a trade impacting their 2019 roster. He threw out 22.9% (16-for-70) of potential base stealers and enjoyed a pair of four-RBI contests over his 64 starts (71 games) behind the plate for the Mets while driving in a career-best 30 runs.

Plawecki played for Purdue and was the Big Ten Player of the Year in 2012.
