Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud left tonight’s game with a sore right shoulder after being struck by a foul tip off the bat of San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence. Leading off the second inning, Pence fouled a 3-0 fastball straight back, striking d’Arnaud in the shoulder. The rookie catcher stayed in the game for another two innings, but did not come back out on defense for the top of the fourth. He was replaced by Anthony […]
I don’t think I could pinpoint another week in the 2013 season where the offense was more flat than it was this past week. The Mets were blanked three times this week, and were on the verge of getting blanked for a fourth if it weren’t for Travis d’Arnaud in the 12th inning.The lineup is essentially filled with rookies and fill ins, so the inept offense is not too big of a shock; but that does […]
It honestly felt like no one on the roster needed that walk-off yesterday more than Travis d’Arnaud. I do not need to sit here and highlight the fact that our young backstop has been struggling recently — considering it’s already been brought up over and over on talk radio, Mets Twitter and what have you. The problem, of course, is that a healthy d’Arnaud was supposed to help anchor us offensively — but the actual […]
Struggling catcher Travis d’Arnaud delivered a two-out single with the bases loaded to give the Mets a 1-0 walk-off win in 12 innings on Sunday at Citi Field. Dillon Gee started and pitched 7.1 shutout innings, scattering six hits and two walks while striking out eight. The bullpen followed up Gee’s brilliant performance with a tremendous effort as Pedro Feliciano, Scott Atchison, LaTroy Hawkins, Gonzalez Germen, and Vic Black combined for 4.2 scoreless innings as Black would […]
After getting swept in a four-game series against the Washington Nationals, Terry Collins said he plans to address his team again, and made some pointed remarks to the team’s rookies. “You’d think some of these guys would grab the opportunity that’s in front of them because of the injury issues on our club to say, ‘Here’s my chance to show I’m a major league player,’” Collins said after Thursday’s 7-2 loss. “And we’re not seeing […]
You might be frustrated and disgusted by watching the Mets lose to the Nationals, but it is far better than not having any Mets to watch at all. October has to be the worst month because there’s baseball, but baseball without the Mets. At least in November there’s the start of the free-agent season, highlighted by the Winter Meetings, which is winter’s World Series. January? You can see spring training from there, and February, regardless […]
As Met fans, who have been conditioned to focus on the future, we all waited anxiously for the debuts of Wilmer Flores and Travis d’Arnaud this season. Flores appeared first and hit the ground running, driving in nine runs in his first seven games. The 22-year old was batting .286 with a .762 OPS until he suffered a serious ankle injury which has seen his numbers and his playing time go into a steep decline. […]
Mets top prospect Travis d’Arnaud went 0-for-4 with a strikeout in last night’s 9-4 loss to the Cleveland Indians. In his last ten games, d’Arnaud is batting .158 with nine strikeouts in his last 38 at-bats and overall the young catcher is batting .143 (8-for-56) with an on-base of .234 and a .233 slugging percentage. Manager Terry Collins has recently dropped d’Arnaud to eighth in the lineup, and expects him to start figuring things out at […]
With the sun setting on another year of Mets minor league baseball, let’s spotlight some of the players who made us stop and take note of what’s been quite an impressive collection of outstanding performances this season. We begin with 24 year old Dustin Lawley. While it’s undeniable that his age played a significant factor in his performance and future with the Mets organization, Lawley still managed put up some impressive numbers in 469 at […]
