Travis d'Arnaud underwent surgery Wednesday to remove bone spurs from his right elbow.
The procedure went according to plan and should have little effect on d'Arnaud's offseason regimen. The 25-year-old catcher batted .265/.313/.474 with seven home runs and 22 RBI in 53 games after the All-Star break and has the look of a potential breakout candidate for the 2015 fantasy season.

Travis d'Arnaud will undergo surgery after the season to remove a bone spur from his right elbow.

He will not play in the weekend series versus the Astros. All things considered, it could have been much worse for the Mets, as d'Arnaud will be fine by the time spring training rolls around. He'll end his season with a .242/.302/.416 batting line, 13 homers and 41 RBI over 108 games.

Adam Rubin of reports that Travis d'Arnaud's elbow issue is not believed to be anything that would affect his availability for next season.

D'Arnaud will be examined by teams doctors Friday, but it sounds like the ailment won't be a long-term concern. Either way, his season is almost surely over. D'Arnaud has hit .242/.302/.416 with 13 homers and 41 RBI over 108 games for the Mets this season.

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson revealed Thursday that Travis d'Arnaud is dealing with a right elbow issue.

The club previously hadn't said while ailment he was nursing, only that d'Arnaud would be examined by team doctors Friday. We'll obviously have a clearer picture of his status following Friday's exam.

Travis d'Arnaud will be examined by team doctors Friday when the Mets return to New York.

The 25-year-old catcher is unavailable for Thursday's doubleheader in Washington, D.C. due to an unspecified injury. The Mets are only saying that d'Arnaud is "banged up." It's uncertain whether he'll be able to return to action over the final weekend of the regular season.

Travis d'Arnaud is out of the Mets' starting lineup on Wednesday night due to an apparent illness.

He's also likely to miss Thursday's game, though the Mets aren't offering many details as to why. There is a stomach bug that seems to be making its way around Major League Baseball clubhouses. The 25-year-old catcher has put together a promising second half and will look to finish 2014 on a high note over the weekend.

Travis d'Arnaud went 1-for-4 with a triple as the Mets suffered a 4-2 loss against the Nationals on Tuesday.

The triple was of no importance, as d'Arnaud was stranded. The catcher has, however, tripled in back-to-back games and has been red-hot in September, now batting .313 (20-for-64) in 17 games. D'Arnaud has had a nice turnaround after a slow first half. With less than a week to go, he'll head into the off-season on a high note.

Travis d'Arnaud is batting third Monday for the first time in his major league career.

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.

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?"
