Latest Update Travis d'Arnaud enjoys three-hit night Sat Jul, 19, 08:57 AM
A big catcher, he has smooth defensive acumen and great instincts for the position. He also boasts good home-run power from the catching position, as well as the ability to hit for a high average.
Flaws: : Could stand to improve his walk/strikeout ratio in order to maximize his hitting ability at the big-league level. Also needs to stay healthy, as injuries are already a concern in his case.
What ever the 25-year old former top prospect worked on after being sent down last month sure has worked as d'Arnaud has been on fire since being recalled as he is hitting .318 (21-for-66) with three home runs, and 12 RBI, including one that proved to be the game-winner Friday night.

d'Arnaud has strung together a five-game hitting streak in which he has logged two home runs, six RBI and four runs scored. He's now sitting on a .213 average with six homers and 19 RBI through 178 at-bats, which is nothing special, but has managed to hit safely in 12 of his first 13 games since returning from the minors which is a nice sign from the Mets young catcher.

D'Arnaud has caught the last six-straight games so he's due for a much-needed day off. Anthony Recker will handle the work behind the plate on Sunday.Analyst: Howard Bender
Since returning from a stint in the minor leagues, d'Arnaud appears to have finally put it all together and should be able to stick with the team for the long haul this time around. Although he is still hitting .205 through 161 at-bats, he has now hit safely in eight of his last 10 starts, resulting in six RBI and three runs scored along the way. If he is able to keep up this pace, he will once again be on fantasy radars after a miserable start to the season. Analyst: Matthew Beck
