Mets | John Buck could go on paternity list

New York Mets C John Buck could be put on the three-day paternity list later this week with his wife expecting the couple's child Thursday, Aug. 1. Manager Terry Collins said C Travis d'Arnaud could be called up if Buck has to leave the team. However, if they don't want to rush d'Arnaud, Cs Francisco Pena and Juan Centeno are other options. If d'Arnaud is brought up, he'd only be around until Buck returns, though. D'Arnaud has played six Gulf Coast League games since returning from a broken foot.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud should only be owned in deep NL-only leagues or keeper formats. His foot injury basically robbed him of any fantasy baseball value this season. Next year is a different story, though, as he should make his way onto mixed league rosters as the team's primary catcher.
