Travis d'Arnaud went 1-for-4 with a home run against the A's on Tuesday.
D'Arnaud's fourth inning solo homer put the Mets up 1-0, but they had difficulty mustering up offense the rest of the way in the 6-2 setback. The 25-year-old backstop continues to be a fantasy godsend for owners who took a chance on him after he was promoted on June 24. He was demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas in early June after batting a cringe-worthy .180/.271/.273 over 39 games, but destroyed the ball on the farm (24-for-55 with six home runs, eight doubles, and 16 RBI over 15 games) to earn a quick trip back to the Big Apple. Since his promotion, d'Arnaud is 42-for-158 (.266) with eight homers, 10 doubles and a triple. That's serious power for a catcher. Keep riding the hot hand. Aug 20 - 1:32 AM

Mets recalled C Travis d'Arnaud from Triple-A Las Vegas.

D'Arnaud was demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas earlier this month after he hit just .180/.271/.273 over his first 39 games, but he earned his way back in a hurry. The 25-year-old backstop hit .436 (24-for-55) with six home runs, eight doubles, and 16 RBI over 15 games in Triple-A. The Mets will have to hope that the success in the minors will result in some newfound confidence at the major league level. He could be worth a flier in two-catcher mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 24 - 3:10 PM

The Mets will recall Travis d'Arnaud from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.

D'Arnaud has earned his way back to the majors by batting a ridiculous .403/.448/.871 with seven homers and 18 RBI over 17 games at Vegas. The 25-year-old has hit only .189/.277/.269 across his first 257 major league plate appearances, but don't forget that he's a former top prospect. D'Arnaud might be worth a shot again in deeper mixed leagues.
Jun 23 - 11:06 PM

The Mets plan to promote catcher Travis d'Arnaud for next week's series versus the Athletics.

Since his demotion to Triple-A Las Vegas on June 7, the young catcher has been on a roll, hitting .395 with five home runs and 10 RBI in 38 plate appearances. He may be worth trying again in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.
Jun 18 - 5:53 PM

Mike Puma of the New York Post hears that Travis d'Arnaud will be recalled "soon."

D'Arnaud is hitting a blistering .348/.412/.804 with six homers over 12 games since his demotion to Triple-A Las Vegas, so he's apparently found his stroke at the plate. The backstop batted .180/.271/.273 before being optioned earlier this month but certainly has more upside offensively than he's shown.
