New York Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud has been placed on the 15-day disabled list with a right rotator cuff strain, the team announced Tuesday.

D’Arnaud did not finish Monday’s game against the Cincinnati Reds, being removed in the eighth inning due to shoulder pain.

“I felt it bark up,” d’Arnaud said after the game. “I decided to say something. We’ll find out more tomorrow. I’ve never experienced it before. That’s why I said something, just to be safe.”

The Mets have selected the contract of veteran catcher Rene Riveria from Triple A Las Vegas to fill d’Arnaud’s roster spot.

D’Arnaud is batting .196 in 13 games this season.
