Travis d'Arnaud (finger) resumed swinging Monday.
The catcher has been doing other baseball activities for more than a week. Mets manager Terry Collins told reporters that d'Arnaud will be activated once he's able to play a full nine-inning game (hitting and catching included). That could feasibly happen by the end of May. May 18 - 1:16 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (finger) could be cleared to resume hitting on Monday.

He's been doing all baseball related activities other than hitting for a few days now. D'Arnaud is expected to need an additional week of rehab after resuming hitting, so he's still over a week away from a return.

Travis d'Arnaud (finger) has been cleared for all baseball activities other than hitting.

D'Arnaud has had the soft cast on his injured right hand removed and will be allowed to resume hitting in a week. He'll likely need an additional week of rehab after that, so he's still a couple weeks away from being activated from the disabled list.
May 11 - 6:12 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (finger) is hoping to be cleared to resume baseball activities when he has a soft cast removed on Tuesday.

D'Arnaud has been out the last couple weeks with a fractured right pinky finger. The Mets are hoping to get their starting catcher back before the end of the month.
May 10 - 10:49 AM

Mets placed C Travis d'Arnaud on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to April 20, with a fracture of his right little finger.

D'Arnaud suffered the injury when he was hit in the hand by a pitch on Sunday. The plan calls for him to wear a splint for the next three weeks, after which he could be cleared for baseball activities if he's pain-free. He has a chance to rejoin the Mets by the end of May if there are no setbacks, which is good news under the circumstances. Prospect Kevin Plawecki has been called up and will get most of the playing time behind the plate.

Travis d'Arnaud has a metacarpal fracture in his right hand and will be in a splint for the next three weeks.

D'Arnaud will be allowed to resume baseball activities after those three weeks are up if the fracture is healed and he feels pain-free. The 26-year-old catcher suffered the injury Sunday when he was hit on the right hand by a pitch and it sounds like he'll be out until sometime in late May. Kevin Plawecki will be promoted from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.
Apr 20 - 2:57 PM

Travis d'Arnaud has been diagnosed with a fracture in his right hand.

The Mets have now lost both d'Arnaud and Jerry Blevins to fractures in the same day. It's such rotten timing for d'Arnaud, who was off to a blistering .317/.356/.537 start at the plate. How long he'll be sidelined will depend on the specifics of the fracture, but obviously it's going to be an extended absence. Look for the Mets to promote Kevin Plawecki to fill in for d'Arnaud.
Apr 19 - 3:49 PM

Travis d'Arnaud left Sunday's game against the Marlins after being hit on the right hand/wrist by a pitch.

D'Arnaud got plunked in the seventh inning by an A.J. Ramos offering on a half-swing. The young catcher is undoubtedly headed for X-rays to determine the extent of the damage. Losing d'Arnaud, who is off to a .317/.356/.537 start at the plate, would be a big blow for the Mets.
Apr 19 - 3:26 PM

Travis d'Arnaud hit a solo home run in Saturday's win over the Marlins.

The catcher finished the game 1-for-4 with the home run and solitary RBI. It was his second homer of the season and his ninth RBI. D'Arnaud is slashing .289/.317/.526 to this point. Last season, he hit 13 home runs in 421 at-bats, a number that certainly looks obtainable as he moves through his age-26 season.
Apr 18 - 10:53 PM

Travis d'Arnaud hit his first home run of the season as the Mets topped the Phillies on Wednesday.

D'Arnaud homered in the bottom of the second off of Jerome Williams to break a 1-1 tie. The catcher has started off well, batting .333 in 30 at-bats, and he's knocked in at least one run in seven of eight games. D'Arnaud could certainly emerge into an above-average offensive catcher this season.
Apr 15 - 9:58 PM

Travis d'Arnaud went 2-for-4 with two RBI in the Mets' defeat of the Nationals on Thursday.

The 26-year-old catcher hit a two-run single off Stephen Strasburg in the top of the third inning and he singled and scored a run in the top of the sixth. D'Arnaud is 5-for-11 with four RBI through his first three games this season. He's a strong breakout candidate.
Apr 9 - 4:15 PM

Travis d'Arnaud went 2-for-4 with an RBI triple in Monday's victory over the Nationals.

D'Arnaud's deep drive to center field in the seventh inning was a foot away from leaving the yard, but he'll take the RBI three-bagger. He added a single in his final at-bat. D'Arnaud had an awful spring training, so it's good to see him get off to a nice start in the Mets' first game. He should have mixed league value as long as he stays healthy.
Apr 6 - 7:19 PM

Travis d'Arnaud went 0-for-2 on Thursday, lowering his spring average to .229.

D'Arnaud has no homers and no walks through 48 at-bats. He's supposed to be an above average offensive catcher this year after his promising second half last season, but there hasn't been much to be encouraged about this spring. If there's any good news, it's that he's struck out just four times.
Apr 2 - 3:52 PM

Travis d'Arnaud was removed from Sunday's Grapefruit League game against the Rays in the fifth inning due to dizziness.

The Mets are citing dehydration as the reason that the young backstop was lightheaded. He's expected to be fine and should return to the Mets lineup in a day or two.
Mar 15 - 6:08 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (finger) is slated to return to the Mets' Grapefruit League lineup on Tuesday.

D'Arnaud left Sunday's game after he suffered a lacerated finger when he was spiked sliding into second base. He got a day off Monday, but should be ready to roll going forward. The 26-year-old saw a huge improvement after returning from the minors last season and should be relevant in most mixed fantasy leagues this season.
