Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 3-for-5 with two doubles, an RBI, and a run scored Sunday in a rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas.
D'Arnaud, who is working back from a bone bruise in his wrist, is now 5-for-14 (.357) during his minor league rehab assignment. The expectation is that he will stick around to catch Steven Matz (elbow) on Tuesday, but he's not far off. Rene Rivera has been red-hot during his absence, so it will be interesting to see how Terry Collins balances the playing time moving forward. May 22 - 11:42 AM

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) made a pinch-hitting appearance for Triple-A Las Vegas on Saturday and will catch nine innings on Sunday.

D'Arnaud is expected to need a few days before he is able to return, and Sunday's stint behind the dish will go a long way in determining if he needs extra time or not. Wait to see him officially return and prove his health in a full game without any setbacks before plugging him back into the active fantasy lineup.

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 2-for-4 Thursday in his first rehab game for High-A St. Lucie.

He also caught seven innings behind the plate. D'Arnaud landed on the DL with a bruised wrist earlier this month but should be back with the Mets sometime next week. Rene Rivera has done most of the catching during his absence.

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) has been throwing and doing receiving drills.

And he will head to the Mets' spring training complex in Florida on Thursday to ramp up his rehab efforts. Kristie Ackert of the New York Daily News says d'Arnaud should be cleared to resume hitting soon. He's been on the disabled list since May 3 because of a bone bruise in his right wrist.
May 10 - 10:44 AM

Mets placed C Travis d'Arnaud on the 10-day disabled list, retroactive to May 3, with a right wrist bone bruise.

D'Arnaud bruised the wrist a couple weeks ago and it began acting up again on him this week. He'll wear a splint and be shut down for a week before resuming baseball activities, so it won't be a minimum DL stay. Rene Rivera and Kevin Plawecki will handle the catching duties.
May 5 - 4:35 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) is not in the Mets' lineup Thursday against the Braves.

This will be his second straight absence after re-injuring his right wrist on Tuesday night. Rene Rivera will draw another start behind the plate and bat seventh against Braves lefty Jaime Garcia. D'Arnaud is set to meet with a doctor on Thursday. That visit could determine whether he ends up on the disabled list.
May 4 - 4:35 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) is not in the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Braves.

A sore right wrist forced d'Arnaud out of Tuesday's contest. He also bruised that wrist in mid-April. Rene Rivera will start at catcher in his place and is batting seventh in Wednesday's contest. For the time being, d'Arnaud should be considered day-to-day.
May 3 - 4:10 PM

Travis d'Arnaud left Tuesday's game against the Braves with a sore right wrist.

That's the same wrist d'Arnaud bruised two weeks ago. He was 0-for-3 with a strikeout Tuesday before getting replaced at catcher by Kevin Plawecki. This looks like more bad injury news for the hobbling Mets.
May 2 - 10:11 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (back) has returned to the Mets' lineup Monday against the Braves.

D'Arnaud exited from Saturday's game due to some tightness in his upper back, but it's not a major concern. He'll bat seventh against Julio Teheran.
May 1 - 3:57 PM

Travis d'Arnaud was lifted from Saturday's game versus the Nationals in the eighth inning due to some tightness in his upper back.

D'Arnaud isn't going to play Sunday, but he had been slated to be on the bench, anyway, as Rene Rivera almost always catches Noah Syndergaard. The Mets' backstop is day-to-day. "It’s just a little tight, I’ll be OK," d’Arnaud said. "It’s fine."
Apr 30 - 10:21 AM

Travis d’Arnaud carried the load for the Mets’ offense in Friday’s win over the Nationals by going 2-for-3 with two homers, five RBI, and a walk.

The five RBI were a career-high. It was the first multi-homer game of his career. Both of them came off Max Scherzer, including a two-run blast in the second inning and a three-run shot in the fourth. D’Arnaud has already matched his home run (four) and RBI (15) total from all of last season.
Apr 28 - 10:51 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) is back in the Mets' starting lineup Tuesday versus the Braves.

Another one of the banged-up Mets, d'Arnaud was limited to pinch-hitting duties over the weekend due to a right wrist contusion. However, he managed to avoid the disabled list and will bat eighth in his return, weather-perimitting.
Apr 25 - 3:13 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) was scratched from the Mets' lineup Friday.

He had been hoping to return after a one-game absence due to a right wrist contusion, but d'Arnaud still had some issues while trying to throw. Hopefully he'll be ready sometime this weekend. Rene Rivera is catching Friday.
Apr 21 - 4:20 PM

Travis d'Arnaud left Wednesday's game against the Phillies due to a right wrist contusion.

The Mets backstop ticked his hand on the opponent's bat while making a throw from behind the plate, with Rene Rivera subsequently taking over for him in the field. Consider d'Arnaud day-to-day for the time being. His specific recovery timetable should clarify after he is reevaluated on Thursday.
Apr 19 - 9:31 PM

Travis d'Arnaud was lifted from Wednesday's game against the Phillies due to a possible right hand injury.

The injury would seem to have occurred when d'Arnaud ticked his hand on the opposing batter's lumber while making a throw from behind the plate. Rene Rivera subsequently came on to pinch hit for the backstop. The Mets should offer an update as to his specific diagnosis relatively shortly.
