Mets | Travis d'Arnaud breaks foot

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (foot) fractured a bone in his left foot Wednesday, April 17, while playing for Triple-A Las Vegas. He will be examined Friday, April 19, in New York, after suffering a non-displaced fracture of the first metatarsal bone in his foot. d'Arnaud is in a walking boot, and the team is unsure if he'll need surgery. There was sense around the organization that they were going to recall the catching prospect soon.

Fantasy Tip: This is troubling news for d'Arnaud owners in keeper leagues. The catching prospect was close to surfacing in the majors last year with the Toronto Blue Jays, too, before suffering a major knee injury. John Buck is off to hot start, so he'll continue to be the main catcher at the big league level, and d'Arnaud's latest injury just bought him much more time.
