Travis d'Arnaud's catching 2

Travis d’Arnaud will start rehab assignment Sunday

Travis d’Arnaud will begin a rehab assignment Sunday with Double-A Binghamton.

Terry Collins said he expects d’Arnaud to play in two or three games before returning to the Mets.

D’Arnaud was put on the 7-day concussion disabled list last week, retroactive to May 14, and later replaced on the roster by Triple-A C Juan Centeno.

He was cleared by doctors on Thursday and took batting practice Friday.



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.

I can hear the Met Fans commenting on how the Mets screwed up in trading d'Arnaud and he becomes the phenom that all the scouts thought he ´would be somewhere else. Not one of his injuries that ˙he suffered were because of something he did.  You are all pathetic fans

D'Arnaud is trade bait. Plawecki is our guy. He is killing it in AA. Promotion to Vegas is coming.

He'll be on the DL for more games than he plays. Has a history of injuries.

Look out NL! The return of the great ball framer!

They should keep him in Double A. Another position player who hits like a pitcher. Never thought I would miss Josh Thole.

Cho Choo Coleman still around? Maybe the "Goose" - another heralded draft pick that went nowhere fast in N.Y....

Mets brass proving again they have no clue! Let's send him to a team where the catcher is red hot and just hit homeruns in 3 straight games. Yeah he won't care if Travis takes some at bats away from him. Smh

Maybe the concussion cleared some of the cobwebs up there. I honestly have forgotten what it's like to have a good-hitting catcher in the lineup. Hey, maybe Sandy can gisn Miguel Olivo. I (h)EAR the guy has some offensive bite.

I hope he comes back and hits a ton...so we can package hit for a power bat and bring up Kevin Plawecki.

Perhaps Plawecki will give him some pointers on how to hit?

@stage52 in fairness...he was sold to the fanbase as a great catching prospect....and in fairness compare his stats at age 25 to some other great catchers at that age....compare him to Mauer, Piazza, Pudge, Molina at age 25.....you'll find yourself vomiting in your mouth at the comparisons....he is worlds behind them


and if you do compare them you'll realize pretty quickly he will never be in their class....he is already to far behind them

@masochist  Well lets not go crazy with AA. I think they should be sending him to AAA though instead to get his bat going and confidence up and earn his way back up to the big club. And I'd leave him down there for more than just a few games until he does so.

Pedro Lopez already said Plawecki could play 1B or DH since there is an AL team in town.

And besides, Binghmton is a 3 hour drive from NYC, would you prefer them to send him all the way out to Vegas just for a few games? Especially after suffering a concussion? Brooklyn's season hasn't even started so Binghamton is clearly the logical choice.

@BringBackDaveTelghe Perhaps you've forgotten already but watching d'Arnaud wasn't much better if at all. In fact to me it was worse because I actually had expectations for him as opposed to the other 2. Centeno is hitting .300 in limited action and Recker's stats are virtually identical to d'Arnaud with even a little more power

@tierlifer  They only want him to get some at bats so where it happens is not that important.  Binghamton is closest option.  Is it really that important where he gets the at bats given the narrow need for him to just get at bats?

If its just a couple rehab starts, and by a couple I mean 3. Then the travel isn't really a hindrance, so send him to St.Lucie.

@tierlifer  If they are worried about him flying in a plane still than he clearly shouldn't be coming back to play so I can't consider that as a factor. I actually would prefer to send him out to Vegas because I want him to get his bat going and get some confidence and earn his way back onto the MLB team. And I'd leave him there for longer than just a couple games if he doesn't start hitting.

If that is the case, we will have once again made a horrible decision.
