Latest Update Travis d'Arnaud underwent surgery Wednesday to remove a bone spur in his right elbow. Wed Oct, 01, 05:22 PM
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.
Better to have it done now than to wait until next year. D'Arnaud should be more than ready for spring training next season.Analyst: Howard Bender
d'Arnaud finished the season strong before bone spurs derailed him. He makes for a strong sleeper candidate at catcher headed into next year.Analyst: David Kerr
D'Arnaud has now missed the last three games and four of the last five. This is the first time someone from the Mets has revealed the nature of the injury, so now we have to find out if it's just a general issue or if it's something more specific such as what Orioles' catcher Matt Wieters went through. If that's the case, then Tommy John surgery could be an option for d'Arnaud. If so, that could force him out of most, if not all, of the 2015 season.Analyst: Howard Bender
The Mets are being very tight-lipped about the nature and severity of injury, but the rumor mill has him visiting a doctor this week. He says that he'll play again this season, but you should be looking for an alternative if you haven't already.Analyst: Howard Bender
