Updating a previous item, New York Mets C Travis d'Arnaud (concussion) will not return from the 7-day concussion disabled list when he's eligible Wednesday, May 21, because he's still having concussion-related symptoms during workouts. "He's still feeling the effects of the initial impact," general manager Sandy Alderson said, "so at this point I don't have a real good prognosis on when he will be back. But at this point, as he exercises, he still experiences some symptoms. As a result, we're still in the recovery period." Cs Anthony Recker and Juan Centeno will continue to share the catching duties in the meantime.
Fantasy Tip: With concussions, a player's timetable for a return is usually cloudy. Continue to hold d'Arnaud but know that this could be a long-term injury.

The New York Mets will place C Travis d'Arnaud (concussion) on the 7-day concussion disabled list Thursday, May 15. C Juan Centeno is being called up from the minors, and he'll start Thursday.
Fantasy Tip: Anthony Recker and Centeno will split the catching duties, with Recker likely seeing the majority of the starts behind the dish. Concussions are tricky, so there is no telling if d'Arnaud will return in just a week .

New York Mets SP Noah Syndergaard was sent to minor league camp Tuesday, March 18. He'll start at Triple-A Las Vegas for some more seasoning. The team also re-assigned Ps Rafael Montero, Joel Carreno, Ryan Reid, Cory Mazzoni and Miguel Socolovich, 1Bs Brandon Allen and Matt Clark and C Juan Centeno.
Fantasy Tip: As DiComo notes, Syndergaard, the club's top pitching prospect, is expected to follow a similar path to the bigs that Matt Harvey and Zack Wheeler had, which would put his arrival in New York around sometime in June. That would keep Syndergaard from achieving Super 2 arbitration status. He should be firmly on the radar of those in NL-only and keeper leagues.

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.
