The Mets will be without catcher Travis d’Arnaud a little while longer. He was expected to come off of the disabled list next week after recovering from a fractured right pinkie finger, but he now has a bone bruise in his wrist, per ESPN New York’s Adam Rubin.

It’s not known how d’Arnaud suffered the wrist injury nor exactly how much extra time he’ll need before returning to the Mets. He suffered the broken pinkie when he was hit on the right hand with a fastball from Marlins reliever A.J. Ramos. Prior to landing on the disabled list, d’Arnaud was hitting¬†.317/.356/.537 with two home runs and 10 RBI in 45 plate appearances.

Kevin Plawecki and Anthony Recker will continue to handle most of the catching duties while d’Arnaud remains out.
