Travis d’Arnaud to undergo concussion tests; Centeno to NY

Travis d’Arnaud will undergo concussion tests after being hit in the helmet on a backswing during Tuesday night’s game.

Triple-A C Juan Centeno is on his way to New York, the Mets announced (Twitter, May 14).

After no immediate reaction, d’Arnaud did have a light headache last night after the game, Terry Collins told reporters. D’Arnaud wasn’t going to play on Wednesday anyway, Collins said, but he is not feeling 100 percent on Wednesday.

D’Arnaud could be placed on the 7-day disabled list for a concussion, if he does have a concussion.



This season, d’Arnaud is hitting .196 with a .274 on base percentage. He has three doubles, three home runs and eight RBI over 114 plate appearances.

Whatever happened to Tyler Teacozy?  I think I've actually forgotten what it's like to have a catcher than can HIT. Not ready to give-up on TDA yet but he has clearly not been as advertised.

i guarantee if recker plays everyday he will suck.  I like recker, but as a backup.  I still see potential with TDA, he does hit a lot of balls hard without much luck.  He does have 3 homers with less then 100 Abs.  He's well on his way to a double digit home run and 50 + rbis season which is not bad for a catcher.  I think everyone is expecting way too much from the catcher position.  I love how TDA plays behind the plates, i think he's be solid defensively, they way he frames pitches is excellent, seems to call a good game, has an accurate and pretty strong arm.  Lets also not forget he hasn't even played a full season in the majors.


Ill take a young catcher with upside, who is solid defensively, and has 15+ home run potential anyday of the week.

I love Centano.  I wish he would start every.  Guy could hit, rarely K's.  No power though.  Would make an effective 2 hitter, but they will never trust him to that.  I would hit him 2 and everybody else down 1.  Murphy is our best hitter and should bat 3 anyway.

He'll be fine.  They gave him a brain scan.  It came back negative.

I like Recker - I hope he makes the most of his chances.

Good.  Don't mess with concussions.  That said, TdA can't play a full season.  You can't be fragile and a catcher.

Please tell me that he has had this concussion since February. 'Cuz that brutha can't catch a cold back there. His defense is bad and his hitting is worse.

This could be a good excuse to put him on the DL as they can't go with only 1 catcher. Then they can send him to AAA to work his way back into playing again. Isn't there a new like 7 or 8 day DL for concussions?

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME.Its  amazing how many injuries this team has had.

Too bad because his defense was starting to improve (imo) and he was beginning to win me over..

D'Arnaud is starting to worry me. I know all hope is not lost, but the signs really aren't very good.

His defense is excellent and he knows how to handle a pitching staff. We can never trade Plawecki in case d'Arnaud's hitting does not come around.

Get the scouts head checked who said this guy is a future star

There's no reason to jump off the Travis D train yet. He reminds me of Paul LoDuca in some ways. Catchers typically need at least a full year in the big leagues to settle in. Hopefully, that same train of thought applies to TDA. I like him.

He was slammed on the top of the head with the biggest bat in the league. Soriano swings a 40 oz bat or something like that.

Even with the hockey style helmet, a hit to the head is going to hurt. Get well quickly TdA.

So no backup?  they'll end up having to run him out there and he'll end up not knowing his name.

X-rays of his head showed nothing.

Yes it is all a conspiracy whatever happens to the Mets!  Go back to bed and get some needed sleep please and do us all a favor

Was watching that inning in a crowd without t.v sound. Couldn't tell what was going on. Hopefully it wasn't intentional and he's alright.

First, obviously I hope he's ok.  He seem s like a terrific young man.  With that said, can't we trade this guy before his value is gone and call up Plawecki or trade for a major league catcher?  Yes, he can frame a pitch with the best of them but so what.  Getting 4 or 5 strikes a game that may have been balls does not make up for watching more middle middle fastballs go right by you.

Do the Mets ever have a big win that is not immediately followed by bad news, usually in multiples?  Gee and possibly TdA.  This always happens with this team.

@helloboy  how do u know he can hit bc he hit in minors? so did TDA.  When this guy is batting 210 w 0 home runs well be dying for TDA

@doubleday Yes cause getting hit on the head by a 40 ounce bat is 1000% his fault.   sheesh.

@nwmets I am sure he has a brain in there somewhere?    LOL

 send him to Vegas and play him every day there. Can't play up here now.

He has no value right now.  No point in trading him.  He was overhyped.  So many fans are giving up on him because they expected Buster Posey from day 1.  Please give him a full year of playing time before you pass judgement, its not like this team is going anywhere this year so you might as well.

Oh, it's good to know you have the forsight to trade a .190 hitter before his value goes down.

@SufferingMetsFan Lagarus took a foul ball off his foot in his last at bat last night. Might be sore still?  Flores might still be feeling affects from  whatever he had? Until we get an explanation  guessing is a waste of time.

@Thomas McKeever He DOES have value, young, well-thought of catching is in huge demand right now.  You're right that we need more time to evaluate.  Numbers are still fluky this early in the season.  Take out his 0 for 15 to start the season and what does it look like?

mets2891

I wasn't, and I assume most weren't either.  The guy should be given more of a chance, but let's be real, he's shown NOTHING since he's been promoted.

@Thomas McKeever @SufferingMetsFan   He did, but when does Terry every do what he says he will do?  Flores was HOT down in AAA, now he hasn't played in how many days? Granted he was sick, but he should of been in the lineup last night and today, he has so much more upside than Tejada!

"...manager Terry Collins decided to keep Wilmer Flores on the bench and start Ruben Tejada tonight. Tejada was filling in for Flores while he was sick, but has been healthy the last two days. Collins said Tejada is too hot to take out of the lineup."
