Travis d'Arnaud got just one hit in five chances but drove in three runs in a win over the Braves on Wednesday.

He plated the Mets' first run with a fielder's choice grounder in the fourth inning, then laced a single that drove in two runs in the next frame. It's been another injury-plagued, inconsistent season for the catcher, although he's been trending in the right direction in recent weeks. He has a .245 batting average with 16 home runs and 57 RBI in 110 games.

Travis d'Arnaud went 2-for-3 with a homer, two RBI, and a walk in the Mets' win over the Braves on Monday night.

The 28-year-old catcher hit an RBI double in the bottom of the third inning and added a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth. He's batting just .246 with a .296 on-base percentage in 108 games this season, but d'Arnaud is up to 16 home runs and a respectable .451 SLG.

Travis d’Arnaud went 2-for-4 with two homers and four RBI in Friday’s 7-6 victory over the Nationals.

D’Arnaud connected for a solo homer in the second inning before tying the game with a three-run shot in the fifth. The Mets would take the lead one inning later. This was his second career multi-homer game this season, with both of them coming against the Nationals this season. The 28-year-old now has a career-high 15 homers to go along with a .245/.292/.442 batting line. He has turned things on a bit this month, but he’s no sure thing to begin next year as the No. 1 catcher for New York.

Travis d'Arnaud was lifted from Thursday's battle against the Cubs with a twisted right knee.

The hard-hitting backstop was pulled after grounding into a double play in the fifth inning. It sounds as though the injury is minor though and shouldn't keep d'Arnaud out of action long. Kevin Plawecki took over for him in Thursday's game.

Travis d'Arnaud is not in the Mets' lineup for Saturday's showdown against Gio Gonzalez and the Nationals.

It's just a regular day of rest for d'Arnaud, but with so many other big bats missing due to injury, his absence is notable. Kevin Plawecki is starting in his place and batting sixth for the Mets on Saturday afternoon.

Travis d'Arnaud went 1-for-4 with three strikeouts in Sunday's loss to the Mariners.

The Mets' offense proved powerless in this one, not getting on the board until the ninth inning. They would lose by a 9-1 final. For his part, d'Arnaud is now hitting .239/.295/.426 with nine homers and 33 RBI in 67 games played this season.

Travis d'Arnaud went 3-for-3 with an RBI single and a run scored in a win over the A's on Saturday.

D'Arnaud had an RBI single and scored a run in the Mets' four-run sixth inning. He also doubled among his three hits, and walked in the contest. These games come along every so often and remind us that the 28-year-old was once a highly-regarded prospect in part for his offensive abilities, but it's just been too sporadic to this point in his major league career. Through Saturday, d'Arnaud is hitting .241/.302/.449 in 2017.
