NEW YORK — Travis d’Arnaud is expected to be activated from the disabled list for Wednesday’s matinee series finale against the Pittsburgh Pirates, Sandy Alderson said.
D’Arnaud is due to play a third and final rehab game with Binghamton on Tuesday night.
The 25-year-old catcher has been on the shelf since getting struck on his helmet by Alfonso Soriano’s backswing during a May 13 game at Yankee Stadium. D’Arnaud is 1-for-7 so far on his rehab assignment and was batting just .196/.274/.314 in 31 games for the Mets prior to suffering the head injury.
D’Arnaud was a big part of the December 2012 trade that sent R.A. Dickey to the Blue Jays.
He batted .328/.402/.588 with 18 home runs and 64 RBI in 86 career games at Triple-A.
