Being a freshly called-up rookie means you don't have a car in your new home city, but it also means you're anonymous enough to take the subway to work. 

Mets rookie Kevin Plawecki was summoned to New York from Las Vegas on Sunday and will make his MLB debut on Tuesday night. Rather than call a cab, Plawecki and teammate Danny Muno (who was called up last week) opted for the more economical choice and took the 7 train to Citi Field. They haven't even been in New York long enough to complain that the price of a subway ride has risen from $2.50 to $2.75.

Plawecki will start at catcher and bat seventh in Tuesday night's game. Manager Terry Collins said he expects Plawecki to be the primary catcher while Travis d'Arnaud is on the disabled list with a broken finger. 

It sounds like he can get the unlimited monthly MetroCard.
