Mets | Travis d'Arnaud in a splint for a month

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 11:53:52 -0700

Updating a previous report, New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (hand) was diagnosed with a metacarpal fracture in his right hand. He'll be in a splint for three weeks and can resume baseball activities after that if his injury has healed and he's not dealing with any pain.

Fantasy Tip: You'll want to ignore d'Arnaud at FantasyScore for at least a month. Everywhere else, keep him stashed in a DL slot. There's reason to be worried that his hand injury could sap him of his power, at least shortly after his return. In the meantime, Kevin Plawecki will serve as the starting catcher and will be a cheap matchup play for daily owners.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud going on DL

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 09:05:48 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (hand) will be placed on the disabled list after fracturing his right hand Sunday, April 19, according to manager Terry Collins. C Kevin Plawecki will be called up from Triple-A Las Vegas to take d'Arnaud's roster spot, and Plawecki will take over the starting catching duties, with C Anthony Recker as the backup. It's unknown how long d'Arnaud will be out until after he's examined by a hand specialist Monday, April 20.

Fantasy Tip: It's a shame for d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) owners, as he was off to a fine start in 2015. Plawecki will be making his major league debut for the Mets. He hit .309 with 11 home runs in 376 at-bats in multiple minor league stops in 2014. He'll be a cheap catching option at FantasyScore, but no more than a dice roll as he acclimates to big league pitching.

Mets | Kevin Plawecki could start

Mon, 20 Apr 2015 04:54:29 -0700

New York Mets C Kevin Plawecki could gain some starting duties with C Travis d'Arnaud (hand) on the disabled list.

Fantasy Tip: Plawecki ordinarily would have little fantasy value, but his value suddenly climbed due to the injury to d'Arnaud. There are many in the organization that are high on Plawecki's talents, however, so wait and see how he does before picking him up in daily leagues.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud suffers broken hand

Sun, 19 Apr 2015 12:52:15 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (hand) suffered a broken right hand when he was hit by a pitch Sunday, April 19, against the Miami Marlins.

Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) had gotten off to a good start this season, batting .317 with two home runs and 10 RBIs through 11 games. Anthony Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is expected to become the Mets' everyday catcher during his absence.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud sitting vs. Fish

Fri, 17 Apr 2015 13:09:52 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is not in the starting lineup against the Miami Marlins Friday, April 17. C Anthony Recker is starting behind the plate and batting eighth Friday.

Fantasy Tip: Make sure to remove d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) from your fantasy lineups Friday. Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is nothing more than a low-priced flier, and hitting in front of the pitcher does him no favors. FantasyScore players should likely aim higher.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud back in No. 2 spot

Thu, 16 Apr 2015 12:51:22 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud is back in the No. 2 spot in the lineup against Miami Marlins SP Jared Cosart Thursday, April 16.

Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud's ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) fantasy value will temporarily receive a boost with David Wright (hamstring) on the disabled list. In the No. 2 spot last night, d'Arnaud immediately responded by going 2-for-4 with a home run, two runs and an RBI. He'll be another strong FantasyScore option tonight against Cosart.

Mets | Juan Lagares dropped in order

Mon, 13 Apr 2015 10:58:47 -0700

New York Mets OF Juan Lagares has been dropped from sixth in the lineup to seventh for the game Monday, April 13. He is off to a 4-for-25 (.160) start to the year with one RBI and six strikeouts. C Travis d'Arnaud traded spots with Lagares in the batting order. Lagares hit .359 with three home runs in 64 spring training at-bats, and manager Terry Collins said Lagares is a leadoff option when he's going well.

Fantasy Tip: Lagares' ($2,500, 5.0% of cap) breakout 2014 season gave fantasy owners hopes that he'd continue to progress offensively in 2015. So far, that hasn't been the case, and you should consider him a weak FantasyScore play until he shows signs of life at the bottom of the Mets order.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud to return Tuesday

Mon, 09 Mar 2015 13:51:35 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (finger) will return to the spring lineup Tuesday, March 10.

Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud is probably underrated as a fantasy backstop because of all of his injuries early in his career. He showed some of his potential last summer, and his power still has room to develop some more. Consider him in the late rounds of standard leagues if you wait on the catcher position and are looking for an undervalued play.
