Mets' highly touted prospect Travis d'Arnaud has fracture in foot

Thursday April 18th, 2013

Travis d'Arnaud, a promising catcher in the Mets' Triple-A affiliate, is out with a fracture in his left foot, reports Marc Craig. D'Arnaud was part of the trade that sent R.A. Dickey to the Blue Jays.

The 24-year-old was hitting .250/.429/.472 with a homer and eight RBIs in 12 games for Las Vegas before the injury. Last season, he was .333/.380/.595 with 16 homers and 52 RBIs in 67 games. D'Arnaud had been considered nearly ready for the big leagues with the potential to be the Mets' everyday catcher. The severity of the injury is still unknown.
