Kevin Plawecki's dizziness blamed on clogged sinus

NEW YORK -- New York Mets manager Terry Collins said Kevin Plawecki's dizziness is suspected to be caused by a severely clogged sinus. The situation is exacerbated when Plawecki flies, according to Collins.

A team spokesman said all of the medical reports are not complete on Plawecki, and the rookie catcher would have no comment until then.

Plawecki's dizziness has passed.

"He's just got a real clogged sinus," Collins said. "Obviously it's an issue, but now we know what's caused the dizziness. And it's after flying. The pressure of flying has caused him to have the headaches and the dizziness. Once we get that cleaned up, which they think they can, he'll be a lot better."
