Mets transferred C Travis d'Arnaud from the 10-day disabled list to the 60-day disabled list.

D'Arnaud was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament earlier this week and is set to undergo Tommy John surgery next week, which will sidelined him for the remainder of the season. Kevin Plawecki (hand) will be the Mets' regular catcher when he returns, but for now the team will go with Tomas Nido and Jose Lobaton.

Mets placed C Travis d'Arnaud on the 10-day disabled list with a partially torn UCL in his right elbow.

The injury-prone 29-year-old backstop could very well be facing season-ending Tommy John surgery. It's rough news for the Mets, who have otherwise flourished in the early part of the 2018 regular season. Tomas Nido has been called up from Double-A Binghamton to share time behind the plate with Kevin Plawecki.

Travis d'Arnaud clubbed his second home run of the spring Sunday in the Mets' 5-4 Grapefruit League defeat of the Orioles.

It was a second-inning solo shot off Orioles starter Dylan Bundy. D'Arnaud then added a two-run double in the third inning, finishing the day 2-for-4 with three RBI. The 29-year-old catcher has put up excellent numbers this spring and could be a sneaky breakout candidate in 2018.

Travis d'Arnaud homered, singled and walked in three plate appearances Wednesday against the Yankees.

D'Arnaud hasn't put it all together at any point, but it wouldn't be a total surprise to see him perform as a top-10 fantasy catcher when healthy this year. It's the "when healthy" that's the tricky part.

Mets and C Travis d'Arnaud avoided arbitration by agreeing to a one-year, $3.475 million contract.

He receives a nice raise in his second year of arbitration eligibility. D'Arnaud sported a .244/.293/.443 batting line with 16 homers in 2017.
Jan 12 - 1:14 PM

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 (knee) is back in the Mets' lineup Saturday against the Braves.

D'Arnaud sat out Friday's game after twisting his right knee on Thursday, but fortunately it's not considered serious. The 28-year-old has picked things up offensively in September, but Kevin Plawecki is cutting into his playing time.

Travis d'Arnaud (knee) is not in the Mets' lineup Friday.

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 went 2-for-3 and belted a two-run bomb in a win over the Phillies on Wednesday.

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.
