D’Arnaud Pulled After Getting Plunked Below Right Elbow
Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reported that Mets top catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud was removed from Friday’s game against the Detroit Tigers in the middle of the fifth inning after he was plunked below the right elbow by righthander Luke Putkonen.
D’Arnaud stayed in the game, but was pulled after the inside of his right forearm tightened up on him.
When leaving the park, he was spotted with his arm wrapped, but team officials said they do not believe it is serious.
Rubin quotes D’Arnaud who said:
“It got enough meat to where I’ll be fine — just let it heal, relax for today,” d’Arnaud said. “Fortunately it wasn’t a couple of inches higher or lower.”
Told it didn’t sound great when he was plunked, d’Arnaud said: “It didn’t feel great, either.”
I think that every little nick and every little ache that D’Arnaud goes through during his first season with the Mets, is going to be very magnified. Anyone else get that feeling?
