Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud goes back on the disabled list


Travis d’Arnaud played 11 games before going on the disabled list in mid-April, returned on June 10 after missing two months with a fractured finger, and is now heading back to the disabled list with a left elbow injury.

In between the injuries the 26-year-old Mets catcher hit .296 with four homers and an .873 OPS in 19 games to build on a very strong second half last season, which is why it’s such a shame he’s back on the shelf.

Kevin Plawecki figures to serve as the Mets’ primary catcher, with Triple-A call-up Johnny Monell taking over as his backup.
