Travis d’Arnaud went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run and caught for five innings in a rehab game with Double-A Binghamton on Sunday.
It was the first time he played in a game since suffering a concussion on May 13 against the Yankees.
The Mets said d’Arnaud will DH in another rehab game Monday, catch again Tuesday and potentially be activated Wednesday.
“There was one on a curveball in the dirt, I kind of flinched back,” d’Arnaud said after the game (Press & Sun Bulletin, May 25). “It was a curveball to the left and it was kind of like the same thing. Right when he swung, I kind of fell straight back. It wasn’t even close to me, I guess. I just flinched.”
