Travis d’Arnaud undergoes surgery for bone spur in elbow


As reported by Marc Carig of Newsday, Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud underwent surgery Wednesday to remove a painful bone spur from his right elbow.

The procedure went as planned and d’Arnaud is expected to be fully recovered by the start of spring training next February. He posted an .805 OPS and 10 home runs in 69 games this season after a brief mid-summer demotion to Triple-A Las Vegas and could be ready to break out in 2015 at age 26.

New York acquired d’Arnaud from the Blue Jays in December 2012 as part of the R.A. Dickey trade. He is a .344/.411/.633 career hitter at Triple-A, tallying 24 homers and 80 RBI in 101 games.
