Travis d’Arnaud Could Join Mets To Replace Buck, But Likely Centeno Gets Call
Updated Post 7/31
I’m not buying this…
Joe D. Prediction: Catcher Juan Centeno, who must be added to the 40 Man Roster will get the call, while D’Arnaud continues to rehab. Centeno must be protected from the Rule 5 Draft this fall.
Original Post 7/30
Adam Rubin has reported Travis d’Arnaud’s next stop will be in Double-A with the Binghamton Mets.
The top catching prospect has spent a week in Rookie Ball, on a rehab assignment for a fractured left foot. In six games played (21 at-bats), d’Arnaud hit .318 with three doubles, five RBIs, and four runs scored. His next move is not known yet. We’re still waiting for him to return to the Las Vegas 51s for the first time since the middle of April when the freak injury happened. In 36 at-bats for the 51s, the backstop hit .250/.429/.472 with one home run, five doubles, and eight RBIs.
It’s nice to see d’Arnaud show some production down in Florida after being sidelined for so long, but what’s most important is the fact that he’s healthy and ready to rock. Most reporters are tabbing him as being a September call-up before the season is through. Since he missed significant time last year with a knee injury and now more significant time this season, Sandy Alderson and company would like him to log a little more time in the minors before he’s thrown into the fire that is the big leagues.
This makes sense; I just want to see TDA in the bigs! I’m looking forward to September.
