Travis d'Arnaud is going to have Tommy John surgery on his torn UCL. His season is over. The Mets placed d’Arnaud on the 10-day DL after his diagnosis the other day and it was not certain whether he’d go under the knife. Today it was decided.
This news comes on top of the news that d’Arnaud’s backup, Kevin Plawecki, has been diagnosed with a fractured left hand.
For now Tomas Nido, who came up to back up Plawecki, will take over with Jose Lobaton coming up to join him. It seems clear, though, that the Mets will need to be on the lookout for catching help.
