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.
Jul 30 - 7:16 PM

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.
Jul 23 - 12:15 AM

Travis d'Arnaud homered and drove in a pair of runs on Tuesday as the Mets fell to the Marlins.

The hard-hitting backstop drove in a run with an RBI single in the fourth inning, then clubbed a solo homer that tied the game at 3-3 in the seventh. He finished the night 2-for-4 and is now hitting .226/.288/.466 with nine homers and 26 RBI.

Travis d'Arnaud went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Thursday's loss to the Dodgers.

D'Arnaud cranked a solo homer off Hyun-Jin Ryu in the fourth inning. He is now working on a little five-game hitting streak. Despite showing a nice bit of pop in the bat this season -- eight homers in 129 at-bats -- d'Arnaud is hitting just .226 overall.
Jun 23 - 1:48 AM

Travis d'Arnaud went 2-for-3 with a double and an RBI as the Mets rolled over the Cubs on Monday.

The hard-hitting backstop delivered an RBI double in the eighth inning that increased the Mets' lead to 5-1. He also drew a walk in the contest, reaching base safely three times. Even with the strong night though, he's still hitting just .229/.299/.486 on the season with seven homers and 22 RBI.
Jun 12 - 9:38 PM

Travis d'Arnaud finished 3-for-5 with a double, home run and two RBI in Saturday's extra-innings loss at Pittsburgh.

It wasn't all great for d'Arnaud as he struck out twice. The hits were d'Arnaud's first since coming off the 10-day disabled list. It appears his wrist is back to 100 percent and he can be trusted again in NL-only fantasy formats.
May 28 - 1:21 AM

Mets activated C Travis d'Arnaud from the 10-day disabled list.

A bone bruise on his right wrist sidelined d'Arnaud in early May. With his activation, he will be available to pinch-hit during Wednesday's game against the Padres -- and is expected to start on Thursday. Prior to going down injured, the backstop was hitting .203/.288/.475 with four homers and 16 RBI across 22 games played.
May 24 - 5:51 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) is expected to be activated from the disabled list prior to Wednesday's game against the Padres.

While Rene Rivera will be drawing the start at catcher on Wednesday, d'Arnaud's imminent activation would make him available as a pinch-hitting option. He is expected to be in the starting lineup for Thursday's series finale vs. the Padres.
May 24 - 5:26 PM

Travis d'Arnaud (wrist) went 0-for-3 and caught six innings Monday in his latest minor league rehab game with Triple-A Las Vegas.

D'Arnaud is now 5-for-17 (.294) during his minor league rehab assignment while working his back from a bone bruise in his wrist. He's set to catch Steven Matz (elbow) on Tuesday, but he could be cleared to rejoin the Mets after that. The question is how the playing time will shake out with Rene Rivera, who has been surprisingly productive at the plate. D'Arnaud was batting .203/.288/.475 with four home runs an 16 RBI over 22 games prior to the injury.
May 23 - 8:37 AM

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.
May 21 - 12:54 AM

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.
May 18 - 9:47 PM

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.
