Mets recall C Travis d'Arnaud

NEW YORK (AP) The New York Mets have recalled Travis d'Arnaud after the young catcher found his hitting stroke during a two-week stint at Triple-A Las Vegas.

D'Arnaud is set to be behind the plate and bat seventh Tuesday night for the Mets' interleague series opener against the AL West-leading Oakland Athletics.

To make room for d'Arnaud, the Mets placed catcher Taylor Teagarden on the 15-day disabled list because of a strained left hamstring.

The 25-year-old d'Arnaud was demoted to Las Vegas after the Mets' loss on June 7. He was hitting just .180 with three homers in 128 at-bats this season. He also missed time because of a concussion.

At Las Vegas, he hit .436 (24 for 55) with eight doubles, six homers and 16 RBIs in 15 games.

Manager Terry Collins says d'Arnaud made a few adjustments to his swing and regained some confidence at Las Vegas.
