Mets' Travis d'Arnaud swinging hot bat from No. 2 spot


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com
(11:30 am ET) Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud has batted second in three of the four games since David Wright hit the disabled list, and he's 3 for 12 with two home runs and one walk in those games while batting second.

"This is what I want from him. That's why he's hitting second," manager Terry Collins said Saturday, per MLB.com. "He showed us last year he could swing the bat."

d'Arnaud stuggled initially last season and was sent to Triple-A Las Vegas in June, but he was able to make adjustments and deliver a fine offense performance after being recalled. He's continued to shine early in 2015, hitting .289/.317/.526 with two home runs and nine RBI in 38 at-bats.

"I just believe in myself," d'Arnaud said. "I'm able to make adjustments quicker and believe in my thought process at the plate and know it works."

d'Arnaud is back in the No. 2 spot in the lineup for Sunday's series finale against the Marlins.


With d'Arnaud off, Mets move Lagares to No. 2 hole

D'Arnaud has assumed the No. 2 hole after the Mets placed David Wright on the disabled list. Anthony Recker will take his spot behind the plate for the night and will bat eighth. D'Arnaud is hitting .294 (10 for 34) with a double, a triple, a home run and eight RBI in nine games.


Mets' Collins: Travis d'Arnaud did 'great job' hitting in Wright's spot


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2015) Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud moved into the No. 2 spot in the batting order Wednesday against the Phillies after the team placed David Wright, who hit second in the first eight games on the disabled list. At least for one night, d'Arnaud proved he can handle the responsibility of hitting near the top of the batting order.

d'Arnaud hit his first home run of the season, and went 2 for 4 with two runs and one walk in a 6-1 win.

"I thought Travis did a great job," manager Terry Collins said, per NJ.com. "Everybody's wondering who you hit in David's spot and Travis went in there and did a great job."

Collins also praised d'Arnaud for the turnaround he's experienced since returning from a demotion to the minors last summer.

"I think one thing that helped Travis in the second half, and I'm going to give him all the credit, he figured out what he has to do to have success here," Collins said. "One of the things is to be aggressive early. We've seen what he can do when he hits. You've got to coincide that with making sure your pitch selection is pretty good, but after the second half last year I think he has confidence in his own ability."


Mets C Travis d'Arnaud hits home run in win


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com

Mets 1B Lucas Duda hits 2 RBI in win over Phillies


by Jason Butt | CBSSports.com
(4/15/2015) Mets first baseman hit his first home run of the 2015 season during Wednesday's 6-1 win over the Phillies. 

Duda hit the solo home run in the bottom of the fifth inning. Duda also hit an RBI double to left center in the bottom of the sixth. He knocked in Travis d'Arnaud for the Mets' sixth and final run of the game. Duda finished the game 2 for 5. 

"I believe Lucas Duda’s makeup has changed the last couple of years," Mets manager Terry Collins said, via the New York Daily News. "He knows he belongs and he can hit and put up big numbers here."

Duda now has four doubles and seven RBI this season.

Duda's slash line is now .353/.405/.559. 


Mets drop Juan Lagares in batting order


by Shawn Krest | CBSSports.com
(4/13/2015) Mets manager Terry Collins is dropping center fielder Juan Lagares one spot in the batting order. 

Lagares was a candidate for the leadoff spot in spring training, but he opened the season in the six hole in the order. After opening the season with a .160 average and six strikeouts in 25 at bats, Lagares will bat seventh on Monday. 

"If he continues to swing the bat like he can, he'll be in the leadoff spot," Collins said, per ESPN. "Right now, he's struggling a little bit. So we kind of like where he's at. We've got all the confidence in the world. When that confidence fades, we'll find somebody else. But, right now, this guy is one of the real, real good players and an up-and-coming star in this game."

Catcher Travis d'Arnaud, who is hitting .333 with five RBI, moves up from the seventh spot.

by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Manager Terry Collins indicated that while Murphy is fatigued, "his legs are fine," ESPNNewYork.com reports. Tejada was initially set to start ahead of Wilmer Flores Sunday but instead will spell Murphy at second base.

The Mets are underdogs (+104) against the Braves Sunday, per VegasInsider.com.

Mets catcher d'Arnaud not fully blaming bone spur in elbow


by Brandon Wise | CBSSports.com
(2/21/2015) Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud was forced to have a bone spur in his throwing elbow surgically removed last September, but he's not allowing that to be an excuse for his struggles behind the plate last season.

"My arm feels looser. I have more range of motion in my elbow," d'Arnaud said Saturday, contrasting the end of last season with how he feels now. "I don't want to make excuses. I still should have made clean throws. You never know, though. It could have cut range of motion, so I couldn't extend all the way."

D'Arnaud has been working out since December, and said his goal for 2015 is to stay healthy. "For me, it’s going to help me stay healthy and going into the season being the strongest I’ve ever been," d’Arnaud said.

Mets preparing to have too much of a good thing at catcher


by Chris Towers | CBSSports.com

"If their potential starts to converge at the major league level, and it warrants major league time, then we'll have to make a decision," manager Sandy Alderson told the New York Daily News Tuesday. "But in the meantime, we're happy to have both of them. But Kevin has made a lot of progress, and obviously Travis has done well the second half of this season."
