Travis d'Arnaud C NYM 3 days ago

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Tuesday that d'Arnaud (hand) could return in 10-to-14 days, ESPN's Adam Rubin reports.

Recent reports have mostly mentioned early June, but Alderson's timeline perhaps gives d'Arnaud a chance to play a game or two before the end of May. D'Arnaud was cleared to swing a bat Monday, and he took some dry swings without suffering any setbacks.

D'Arnaud (hand) took dry swings Monday, Newsday's Marc Carig reports.

D'Arnaud was able to successfully complete the first step in his rehab, but it remains too early to lay out a clear timetable. After suffering a broken hand in mid-April, the young backstop's most challenging step will likely be on the defensive side. Once he's able to catch a full game, it won't be long before Mets fans and fantasy owners see d'Arnaud back on the field.

D'Arnaud (hand) was cleared to swing a bat Monday, Marc Carig of Newsday reports.

D'Arnaud was slated to undergo X-rays on Monday, and it appears they went well. He'll continue his rehab without a specific date at this point, as the Mets' catcher protocol involves the ability to catch nine innings. However, a return in early June seems plausible if all goes well in his recovery.

D'Arnaud may be cleared to swing a bat Monday, depending on the results of the X-Ray on his broken hand, ESPN New York's Kieran Darcy reports.

D'Arnaud could progress fairly rapidly, starting with hitting off a tee to batting practice and a rehab stint. If all goes well, he could be back with the Mets in early-June.

D'Arnaud (hand) has been cleared for all baseball activities besides hitting, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

Hitting is one of the fundamental baseball activities of course, but it's encouraging to see that d'Aranud is ready to shed the soft cast he has been wearing and work toward regaining the strength in his hand. D'Arnaud is still several weeks away from playing for the Mets, but he has a chance to return before month's end.

D'Arnaud's (hand) examination to shed his soft cast and begin baseball activities will be Tuesday, Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports.

D'Arnaud will need to rebuild the strength in his hand and then progress to swinging a bat. From there, he will move to batting practice and a several games rehab stint. D'Arnaud, who has been ably replaced by Kevin Plawecki, could be back with the Mets in early-June.

D'Arnaud (hand), who has already started receiving drills, will be examined by the team doctors and hopes to shed his splint Monday, Newsday reports.

Kevin Plawecki has filled in nicely for d'Arnaud and it remains to be seen if he will be sent down when d'Arnaud returns. If d'Arnaud does receive clearance to shed the splint, he will need to progress to swinging a bat, then hitting off a tee to batting practice and a rehab stint. If all goes well, d'Arnaud could be back by early-June.

D'Arnaud (hand) will be in a splint for three weeks and will then be re-examined, Matt Ehalt of The Record reports.

D'Arnaud's examination after three weeks will determine whether or not he will be able to resume baseball activities. If he's able to, an early June return seems plausible at this point. The Mets will place him on the disabled list before Tuesday's game.

D'Arnaud suffered a fractured right hand when he was hit by A.J. Ramos pitch in the seventh inning Sunday, ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports.

The Mets also lost Jerry Blevins to a fractured left forearm in the game, which occurred in the top of the inning d'Arnaud was injured. Kevin Plawecki is likely to get promoted and start daily at catcher for the Mets. D'Arnaud could miss 4-to-6 weeks with the injury and then the question will be if he has full strength in the hand when he returns.
