Mets discover cause of catcher Kevin Plawecki's mysterious dizziness
New York Mets catcher Kevin Plawecki was experiencing bizarre bouts of dizziness that eventually forced him to stop playing, but now he's discovered the cause of the strange affliction.
Plawecki visited doctors on Wednesday and Thursday, and underwent a series of tests, including an MRI and a CAT scan, and received results Thursday night.
Doctors diagnosed Plawecki with clogged sinuses, a condition which was exacerbated while he was flying for team travel. He has been experiencing headaches and feeling dizzy because of it.
"Once we get that cleaned up, which they think they can, he'll be a lot better," manager Terry Collins said.
Plawecki hasn't played for the Mets since June 7. In 33 games this season, the 24-year-old catcher has hit .211/.256/.312 with two home runs and 13 runs batted in.
