Latest Update Travis d'Arnaud hits seventh home run Tue Jul, 29, 06:56 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.
The Mets catcher logged his third multi-hit game since returning from the All-Star break, as he continues to show signs of breaking out of a first half slump. He is now sitting on a .323 average with seven home runs and 25 RBI, but is hitting .314 over his last 35 at-bats, making him someone to keep an eye on moving forward, especially for those in deep mixed league formats.Analyst: Matthew Beck
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
