D’Arnaud Out For Season, Lobaton Contract Selected

The New York Mets announced on Friday afternoon that catcher Travis d’Arnaud has opted for Tommy John surgery and will miss the rest of the season. He has been placed on the 60-day disabled list.

It was reported on Wednesday that d’Arnaud had a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow.

D’Arnaud, 29, was slashing .200/.250/.400 in four games for the Mets this season when the injury occurred. He is arbitration eligible for the third and final time this offseason.

The Mets also announced that catcher Kevin Plawecki is expected to miss 3-4 weeks after finding out today he has a hairline fracture in his left hand after getting hit by a pitch on Wednesday night. He has been placed on the 10-day disabled list.

Veteran catcher Jose Lobaton had his contract selected from the Triple-A Las Vegas 51s by the Mets and he’s in the starting lineup tonight. He was added to the 40-man roster as the corresponding move to d’Arnaud going on the 60-day DL.
