Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) had a two-run double Friday against the Nationals.

D'Arnaud made an early exit Thursday due to a wrist issue, but it's apparently not a big deal. Three runs actually scored on his double in the first inning, but he was only credited with two RBI because of an error. The 25-year-old is batting .246/.305/.416 in his first full season in the majors, but he has come a long way offensively since returning from his demotion in June.

Travis d'Arnaud is back in the Mets' lineup Friday.

The Mets used Thursday's lopsided scored to get d'Arnaud some rest for a wrist that's been sore lately. The young catcher is hitting .279/.322/.485 with seven homers in the second half.

Travis d'Arnaud has been nursing a minor wrist injury.

D'Arnaud was pulled from Thursday's game, but it sounds like the Mets just viewed it as an opportunity to get him some rest since they were down big. The young catcher should be back in there Friday.
Sep 11 - 11:03 PM

Travis d'Arnaud went 1-for-4 with an RBI single Friday against the Phillies.

D'Arnaud still owns a lowly .230 batting average on the year, but he's hitting .265 with nine home runs and 24 RBI in 51 games since coming back from the minors. That'll play in most mixed fantasy leagues.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Thursday that the club has "talked about" eventually moving Travis d'Arnaud to left field.

D'Arnaud has suffered four known concussions and a move to the outfield would give him a better chance of staying healthy. It's a move that hasn't seriously been discussed yet but something that could eventually happen down the road. The presence of Kevin Plawecki at Triple-A could also be a factor. "We’ve talked about it," Collins said. "We’ve brought it up. Obviously, with what he’s started to do offensively, we’ve got to see if these concussions are leading to anything. Is he changing his position (defensively), where he is positioning himself behind the hitter, to get less foul tips?"

Travis d'Arnaud went 2-for-3 with a double and two runs scored in Tuesday's win over the Mets.

D'Arnaud singled and scored the first run of the game, and he later doubled and scored on Juan Lagares' two-run homer. The double was d'Arnaud's 14th of the season. The catcher is hitting .232/.296/.402 through 87 games this season.

Travis d'Arnaud went 2-for-5 with a solo home run in a win over the Dodgers on Sunday.

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.

Travis d'Arnaud did his best to spark a rally, blasting a solo home run in the ninth inning, but it wasn't enough as the Mets lost to the Nationals on Wednesday.

D'Arnaud greeted closer Rafael Soriano with a lead-off home run to left field, cutting the Nationals' lead to one. The catcher has hit three home runs in his last five games and has looked much improved since returning from a demotion to Triple-A. He has a .230/.295/.398 slash line with 10 home runs and 30 RBI.
Aug 13 - 10:32 PM

Travis d'Arnaud went 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two runs scored in Friday's win over the Phillies.

Aug 8 - 10:25 PM

Travis d'Arnaud hit a three-run homer and doubled twice Monday against the Phillies.

And why not? D'Arnaud is batting .300/.340/.560 with three home runs and four doubles in 13 games since returning from the minors. He has earned a promotion in the batting order with his hot-hitting and could stick there if he keeps it up.
