Mets activated C Travis d'Arnaud from the 15-day disabled list.

D'Arnaud has been out since April 25 with a strained rotator cuff, but he'll make his return Tuesday in a World Series rematch against the Royals. He's batting eighth Tuesday against right-hander Ian Kennedy. D'Arnaud was struggling in all phases of the game prior to going on the disabled list, including an ugly .196/.288/.261 batting line in 52 plate appearances, but there's plenty of upside here if he's finally feeling good.
Jun 21 - 3:22 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) will move his rehab assignment to Triple-A Las Vegas this week.

He'll head to New York on Monday and should be activated for Tuesday night's series opener against Kansas City. D'Arnaud has spent the last two months battling a strained rotator cuff but is finally back to 100 percent. So far he's hit .310 during his nine-game rehab assignment.
Jun 16 - 5:38 PM

The Mets plan to activate Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) from the disabled list Tuesday against the Royals.

D'Arnaud has hit .269 with four RBI during his seven-game rehab assignment with High-A St. Lucie. He'll probably move up to Triple-A Las Vegas before joining the Mets next week. D'Arnaud needed two months to recover from a strained rotator cuff. The Mets are unlikely to keep three catchers, which means either Rene Rivera or Kevin Plawecki is headed to the minor leagues.
Jun 14 - 6:21 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) is still 7-8 days away from being activated from the disabled list.

D'Arnaud made his first start behind the plate on his rehab assignment Saturday, but he still needs to catch a full game and on back-to-back days before being activated. Kevin Plawecki will continue to fill in for the next week.
Jun 12 - 11:53 AM

Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) will catch Saturday's rehab game for High-A St. Lucie.

D'Arnaud is finally ready to catch after serving as the DH in his first four games for St. Lucie. Over that span he's gone 4-for-18 with two RBI and a stolen base. D'Arnaud has been on the DL with a strained rotator cuff since late April.
Jun 11 - 4:15 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) is about a week away from catching in minor league rehab games.

He went 1-for-5 with an RBI in his rehab debut Sunday with High-A St. Lucie, serving only as the designated hitter. This could be a full 20-day rehab assignment for d'Arnaud, or something close to it. He's been on the disabled list since April 26 with a strained right rotator cuff and is still limited to long toss.
Jun 6 - 3:58 PM

Travis d'Arnaud went 1-for-5 with an RBI in his first minor league rehab game with High-A St. Lucie on Sunday.

He served as the club's designated hitter in the contest and will continue to do so for a few games until he is cleared to resume throwing. There is still no clear timetable for his return to the Mets, though this is obviously a step in the right direction.
Jun 5 - 8:10 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) will begin a rehab assignment with High-A St. Lucie on Sunday.

He's only serving as a designated hitter initially, as there's no timetable yet for when d'Arnaud will be cleared to resume throwing. However, it's obviously still a nice step as the catcher works his way back from a strained rotator cuff. It's unclear how many rehab games he'll need.
Jun 5 - 2:56 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) could begin a minor league rehab assignment this weekend.

D'Arnaud, who has been out since late April with a strained right rotator cuff, resumed baseball activities last week in Florida. The big test will be game action. Assuming he can avoid setbacks, the Mets could send Kevin Plawecki to Triple-A upon his return and keep Rene Rivera as the backup.
May 31 - 1:47 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) has reported to the Mets' spring training facilities in Florida.

And the plan calls for d'Arnaud to resume full baseball activities on Thursday, per assistant general manager John Ricco. The 27-year-old catcher has been on the disabled list since April 26 with a strained right rotator cuff and remains without an exact timetable for activation. If he can avoid setbacks, it's possible we'll see him return in late June. But that's really just a guess.
May 25 - 12:00 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) has resumed throwing in California.

D'Arnaud was shut down earlier this month after he felt renewed discomfort in his rotator cuff, but he has made progress since receiving a platelet-rich plasma injection. The plan calls for him to travel to Port St. Lucie, Florida later this week to ramp up baseball activities, but the best-case scenario is that he's likely a few weeks away from joining the Mets.
May 23 - 7:29 PM

Travis d'Arnaud has begun strengthening exercises for his strained right rotator cuff.

He is feeling better range of motion already and expects to head to the Mets' spring training facilities soon to resume full baseball activities. The catcher told reporters Wednesday that he's been encouraged by the progress he's made under the guidance of a trainer in California, but there is still no exact timetable for d'Arnaud's return to the Mets' active roster.
May 18 - 3:32 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (shoulder) received a platelet-rich plasma injection on Monday.

D'Arnaud felt more discomfort after attempting to throw on Saturday. There's been no change in the diagnosis, as Mets docs confirmed Monday that he's dealing with a rotator cuff strain, but the team has shut him down indefinitely in hopes that the rest will get him back on track. Kevin Plawecki will be the Mets' regular catcher for the foreseeable future.
May 9 - 6:59 PM

Travis d'Arnaud resumed throwing on Saturday but was shut down after feeling discomfort in his injured shoulder.

Manager Terry Collins called the news "pretty discouraging." D'Arnaud was placed on the DL earlier this month after suffering a strained rotator cuff but resumed hitting at the team's spring training facility on Thursday. Any chance d'Arnaud had of making a quick recovery probably went out the window with Saturday's setback. Kevin Plawecki will continue to fill the void behind the plate for New York.
