Mets Injury Update: Travis d'Arnaud will have surgery to remove bone spur

By on 9/27/2014 06:30:00 AM

The New York Mets enter the final weekend of the 2014 season with a record of 77-82, third in the National League East. A solid pitching staff that is 10th in the Major Leagues in ERA has kept the Mets hovering near the .500 mark. Injuries have hurt the Mets, as only four players have played in over 120 games. Catcher Travis d'Arnaud has been dealing with a bone spur in his elbow and will have surgery next week after the season is over.

Our own Rose Ingberman reported on September 25 that d'Arnaud was examined by the Washington Nationals team doctors and then returned to New York to see the Mets' doctors. There was no word at that time as to the extent of his injury.

Adam Rubin, who covers the Mets for, tweeted the following update on d'Arnaud.
The 25-year old d'Arnaud is in his second Major League season. He's batting .242 with 13 home runs and 41 RBI in 108 games. In 31 games last season, d'Arnaud hit .202 with a home run and five RBI. He has a career batting average of .233 with 14 home runs and 46 RBI in 139 games.
