Mets | Travis d'Arnaud takes batting practice

Fri, 22 May 2015 13:54:04 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (finger) took batting practice Friday, May 22, and it was the first time since he suffered his injury.

Fantasy Tip: Remain patient and continue to stash d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) in all seasonal formats. Kevin Plawecki ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) has handled the majority of starts in his absence, but his fleeting value is nearing an end. FantasyScore players will want to take a wait-and-see approach with d'Arnaud when he returns, and view Plawecki as a value option for contests when he is behind the dish.

Mets | David Wright, Travis d'Arnaud over a week away

Tue, 19 May 2015 13:51:47 -0700

New York Mets 3B David Wright (hamstring, back) and C Travis d'Arnaud (finger) are both 10 days to two weeks away from a return to the team, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: Both players are progressing very slowly, and you have to wonder how much power Wright will have when he comes back. In the meantime, Eric Campbell ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) is manning the hot corner, while Kevin Plawecki ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) is seeing the majority of starts behind the dish. Both players are weak FantasyScore commodities.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud takes dry swings

Mon, 18 May 2015 13:16:21 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (finger) took dry swings Monday, May 18. Hitting is the only baseball activity he has not been cleared for.

Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is still several weeks away from returning to the lineup. He is worth stashing in the majority of seasonal owners. Kevin Plawecki ($3,200, 6.4% of cap) and Anthony Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) have made the majority of starts in d'Arnaud's absence, but neither are anything more than low-priced fliers for FantasyScore players.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud may hit soon

Fri, 15 May 2015 14:09:39 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (finger) could be start hitting Monday, May 18, if X-rays on his finger look good, according to general manager Sandy Alderson.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is making progress in his recovery but still appears to be several weeks away from returning to the lineup. Kevin Plawecki ($3,200, 6.4% of cap), Anthony Recker ($1,600, 3.2% of cap) and Johnny Monell ($2,300, 4.6% of cap) are all options to receive starts, but all should be considered weak options on FantasyScore.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud progressing

Mon, 11 May 2015 15:26:06 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (finger) was cleared for all baseball activities except hitting Monday, May 11.

Fantasy Tip: d'Arnaud ($3,100, 6.2% of cap) is still a ways away from returning, so continue to check back for updates on his progress and a return timetable. He has emerged as a low-end catcher in the majority of seasonal leagues and a nice upside FantasyScore play in favorable matchups.

Mets | Travis d'Arnaud to play some OF?

Wed, 06 May 2015 22:14:39 -0700

New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (finger) could play some outfield when he returns from the 15-day disabled list, according to manager Terry Collins. "I certainly don't know when Travis is coming back. The closer he gets - and we'll see how Kevin's playing at the time - I think you've got to give yourself an idea of how this is going to work," Collins said.

Fantasy Tip: D'Arnaud ($3,100; 6.2% of cap) doesn't sound too close to returning, but once he is back he could be a decent low-priced option if he picks up where he left off.

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.

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.
