Chase d'Arnaud has been diagnosed with bronchitis.

The infielder had just recovered from the flu and will now be held out of workouts for another few days. The illnesses should not affect his readiness for the opening of the 2017 regular season, but d'Arnaud is not guaranteed a spot on the Braves' major league roster.
Mar 9 - 4:38 PM

Chase d'Arnaud has been kept away from the Braves for the past couple of days as he has been dealing with a flu bug.

The team wanted to keep him away from his teammates to avoid spreading the illness, which seems like a smart move on their part. The veteran infielder is looking to secure a bench spot on the Opening Day roster this spring.
Mar 3 - 8:13 PM

Chase d'Arnaud took reps at first base on Saturday.

Utility man Sean Rodriguez was slated to back up Freddie Freeman at first base in addition to playing second base against left-handed pitchers, but now he's likely out for the season after injuring his shoulder in a car accident. D'Arnaud claims he hasn't played first since Little League but is willing to give it a shot with Rodriguez sidelined indefinitely. Nick Markakis, who has started five career games at first base, will also get reps there this spring.
Feb 18 - 5:55 PM

Chase d'Arnaud went 2-for-5, scored a run and drove in three in a loss to the Nationals on Saturday.

He drove in a run with a fielder's choice groundout in the second inning, then drove in two with a single in the ninth inning. It was a rare productive night for the infielder. He has gotten 238 at-bats in 71 games and is batting .255 but has accumulated only one home run, 18 RBI and 21 runs. His nine stolen bases are the only semi-attractive item on his fantasy resume.

Chase d'Arnaud hit a walk-off RBI single to finish off Sunday's 1-0 win over the Rockies.

Rockies reliever Gonzalez Germen served as catalyst for a disastrous ninth. To start, he surrendered a leadoff single to Ender Inciarte. That was followed by an Anthony Recker sacrifice, a Germen wild pitch which allowed Inciarte to reach third, a Gordon Beckham pop out and a walk to Jace Peterson. At which point d'Arnaud stepped to the plate, at which point RBI single, at which point game over. d'Arnaud offers little in the way of fantasy gold with his .263/.335/.365 triple-slash, but the poor Braves deserve a little sunshine every now and then and he provided that well enough on Sunday.

Chase d'Arnaud went 2-for-5 with a double, two RBI and a stolen base in the Braves' 8-5 win over the Marlins on Thursday.

D'Arnaud scored the first run of the game for the Braves in the third inning, motoring around from first base on Freddie Freeman's triple, and he added RBI hits in the sixth and eighth innings. The 29-year-old, who has played five different positions for the Braves this year, is batting a respectable .276/.349/.366 in 42 games. He's not much to look at, but those in deep NL-only leagues may want to take notice.

Chase d'Arnaud went 3-for-5 with an RBI against the Padres on Monday.

Well, we know who the Braves' All-Star rep is going to be. Whether he's at second or short, d'Arnaud has been a fixture in the lineup lately, spending the last five games batting second ahead of Freddie Freeman. He's hitting .333, and he finally notched his first RBI tonight; he had been without one in his first 70 at-bats this year.

Chase d'Arnaud was scratched from the Braves starting lineup on Saturday.

There is no injury involved, but d'Arnaud was involved in a minor car accident on the way to the ballpark on Saturday and the club decided to give him a day off after the ordeal. He should return to the lineup on Sunday.

Chase d'Arnaud went 1-for-2 with a pair of walks and a stolen base in Wednesday's victory over the Pirates.

The 29-year-old infielder has found some success with the Braves, since being called up from Triple-A Gwinnett earlier this month. He's hitting .320/.393/.480 and stole his first base of the season. He remains an uninteresting utility bat for the Braves for now, but could become useful in NL-only leagues if he swipes a few more bags this month.

Braves purchased the contract of INF Chase d'Arnaud from Triple-A Gwinnett.

The 29-year-old infielder was hitting just .255/.300/.372 at Triple-A. He may get some playing time for the battered, rebuilding Braves, but it's doubtful d'Arnaud will be able to hold any kind of fantasy relevance.
Mon, May 2, 2016 03:57:00 PM

Braves signed INF Chase d'Arnaud to a minor league contract with an invitation to spring training.

D'Arnaud appeared in nine games with the Phillies this past season and spent most of the year in Triple-A. He turns 29 in January and appears likely to serve as organizational depth for the 2016 campaign.

Chase d'Arnaud has elected free agency.

The veteran infielder was sent outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley on Wednesday, but refused the assignment and will explore the open market instead. The 28-year-old is a career .205/.231/.277 hitter with no homers and seven RBI in 166 big league at-bats.

Phillies sent INF Chase d'Arnaud outright to Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

d'Arnaud got a crack at the major league roster in mid-September following Cesar Hernandez's season-ending thumb injury. While up with the big club, the 28-year-old infielder was 3-for-17 with a triple. He hit just .268/.317/.354 in the minors.

Phillies purchased the contract of INF Chase d'Arnaud from Triple-A Lehigh Valley.

Cesar Hernandez is done for the season with a dislocated thumb, so there may be some playing time open to d'Arnaud at second base. The 28-year-old utility infielder stole 28 bases in 120 games this summer at Triple-A, though that came alongside a weak .268/.317/.354 overall slash line.
