Update: Mets have confirmed our report and activated Nido. In a corresponding move, the Mets have placed catcher Travis d’Arnaud on the 10-day disabled list.
D’Arnaud underwent an MRI and clinical exam today at the Hospital for Special Surgery in New York. He has been diagnosed with a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow. Treatment of this injury, including possible surgery, will be determined in the next several days.
D’Arnaud, 29, was 3-for-15 this season prior to his injury. He had sat the last two nights.
Nido, 24 tomorrow, had a cup of coffee with the Mets late last season, logging 10 at-bats and recording three hits. The backstop appeared in 102 games last season for Double-A Binghamton, batting .232/.287/.354 in 404 plate appearances.
Prior to the season, MMO ranked Nido as the No. 9 prospect in the Mets system. Nido is already on the 40-man roster and had an edge over Jose Lobaton who is catching for the Triple-A squad in Las Vegas. He will wear uniform No. 3.
