Mets top prospect Travis d’Arnaud made his big-league debut this past Saturday. He was hitless in four bats, during two games, but walked four times.
According to FoxSports.com, the Mets plan to keep d’Arnaud on the roster once John Buck returns from paternity leave, despite what was reported last week. On Monday before their game, Terry Collins told reporters that there hasn’t been a decision on what to do with d’Arnaud yet.
Here is a sample of MetsBlog contributor Robert Brender’s quick one-on-one d’Arnaud after his debut, which you can listen to its entirety at the end of this post…
What has the overall experience been like for you?
Travis d’Arnaud: Its been a great experience. Lot of fun, lot of emotions.
What adjustments have you had to make?
Travis d’Arnaud: Just knowing how the pitchers think and what they want to throw. At the beginning of the game Matt [Harvey] and I… I was trying to figure him out. Once the game went along we were in a better groove with not as many shake-offs.
How was it catching Matt Harvey?
Travis d’Arnaud: A lot of fun. He has such great stuff. He had such a great game plan and idea of what he wants to do out there, and he executed all of his pitches.
