Mets, sandwich pick Plawecki agree to deal
ST. PETERSBURG -- The Mets have agreed to terms with supplemental-round Draft pick Kevin Plawecki, the team announced Tuesday, for a reported $1.4 million.

The 35th overall pick in last week's First-Year Player Draft, Plawecki struck out eight times all season and 29 times in his three-year career at Purdue, hitting .359 as a junior. He is one of the three finalists for the Johnny Bench Award, given annually to the NCAA's top Division I catcher.

The Mets last week agreed to terms with their top pick, shortstop Gavin Cecchini, for $2.3 million.
