The Mets plan "to at least keep their eye open for external options for their top catcher role," which could possibly move d'Arnaud out of the role, Adam Rubin of ESPN.com reports.

EDGE Analysis

Injury issues continued to haunt d'Arnaud in 2016, with elbow and shoulder problems forcing him to miss most of the first half. It's hard to blame the Mets for being open to finding a more durable option, but it could be difficult to find a catcher on the market that can match d'Arnaud's upside and his price.

D'Arnaud is not in the lineup for Monday's game against the Braves, according to MLB.com's Anthony DiComo.

EDGE Analysis

D'Aranud has spent plenty time on the bench of late, and that will again be the case Monday, as he is held out in favor of Rene Rivera for the fourth time in six games.

D'Arnaud, who is out of the lineup Wednesday, appears to have been passed on the depth chart by Rene Rivera.

EDGE Analysis

Rivera has started three of the last four games, and appears to be the go-to option behind the dish for the Mets down the stretch. D'Arnaud, who entered the year as a consensus top-10 catcher for fantasy purposes, has had a brutal season at the plate, slashing .253/.309/.332 with four home runs in 250 plate appearances. Typically he has carried the label of "good when healthy," but he failed to live up to that billing this season. It could simply be chalked up to an off year in a small sample size. The Mets will likely head into spring training next year with d'Arnaud as the unquestioned starter at catcher, so he'll make for a cheap bounce-back option in drafts next season.
