Mets Injury Update: Travis d'Arnaud sidelined with unknown issue

By on 9/25/2014 01:15:00 PM

Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud was behind the plate for nine innings in Tuesday's 4-2 loss to the Nationals, but Wednesday he was examined by the Nationals' doctors and now has left the team to return to New York to see the Mets' doctors. Manager Terry Collins declined to state the exact nature of d'Arnaud's injury, just saying the backstop was "beat up," reports Adam Rubin of ESPN.

Collins was also not sure if d'Arnaud's season is over.  The 24-year-old slashed .242/.302/.416 (OPS+ 105) with 13 homers and 41 RBI in 108 games. d'Arnaud spent two weeks on the DL with a concussion in May.

Travis D'Arnaud

d'Arnaud, 24, was the Philadelphia Phillies' first-round draft pick in 2007. He was traded twice while still a minor leaguer, first in December 2009 with Kyle Drabek and Michael Taylor to the Toronto Blue Jays for Roy Halladay and cash; then in December 2012, the Blue Jays traded him with Wuilmer Becerra (minors), Noah Syndergaard (minors) and John Buck to the Mets for R.A. DickeyMike Nickeas and Josh Thole. D'Arnaud made his major-league debut on August 17, 2013 but hit only .202/.286/.263 in 31 games for 2013. He is pre-arb and under team control through 2019.
