|Mets discussing Travis d'Arnaud position change |
|by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com|
(8/29/14) The Mets have had preliminary conversations with catcher Travis d'Arnaud about possibly changing positions to keep him healthy, the New York Daily News reports Friday.
"We've talked about it,” manager Terry Collins said. "We’ve brought it up. Obviously, with what he's started to do offensively, we've got to see if these concussions are leading to anything. Is he changing his position (defensively), where he is positioning himself behind the hitter, to get less foul tips?"
d'Arnaud has had four reported concussions in his career, an issue that is only exacerbated by playing behind the plate. Despite that, Collins does not think it is likely to happen at this point.
d'Arnaud has made himself an indispensable part of the club's long-term plans with his play this season. Since returning from his latest concussion in June, he is hitting .265/.308/.486 over his last 50 games.

Obviously, with what he’s started to do offensively, we’ve got to see if these concussions are leading to anything."

|Travis d'Arnaud smacks 10th home run Wednesday |
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
(8/13/14) Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 3-2 loss to the Nationals Wednesday.
d'Arnaud brought his team to within one run with his leadoff home run in the ninth inning, but the Mets weren't able to finish the comeback. The catcher has collected three home runs in his last five games. He owns a .230/.295/.398 line with 10 home runs and 30 RBI in 269 at-bats.
|It's finally happening. After years of maybes, eventuallys and if-onlys, Travis d'Arnaud is finally set to become a full-fledged big-league catcher. Of course, with him, you can never be too sure. Opening day hasn't arrived yet, so he could still break his foot or tear his PCL or relive any of the other maladies that have delayed his arrival this long. In case the use of "finally" not once, but twice doesn't give it away, d'Arnaud has loads of potential, particularly for Fantasy purposes. Don't let his underwhelming late-season trial convince you otherwise. He was still working to get his swing right after missing the first four months and didn't get enough at-bats for it to mean anything anyway. While calling him another Buster Posey probably gives him too much credit, d'Arnaud's ability to hit for both average and power could make him an early-rounder in Fantasy someday. Right now, the hype has died down enough that you can probably get him late in single-season formats. He may not get drafted at all in leagues that require only one catcher per team, which makes him a definite sleeper for those willing to exercise a little faith.
