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.

D'Arnaud is out of the lineup Friday against the Marlins.

The 26-year-old will get what looks like a routine day off following four straight starts, as Anthony Recker steps in behind the plate and bats eighth against right-hander David Phelps. D'Arnaud hit his first home run of the year Wednesday in a multi-hit effort, his fourth multi-hit game already this season, and it looks like he may bat second until David Wright (hamstring) returns.

D'Arnaud has been moved into the two hole Wednesday with David Wright (hamstring) getting placed on the DL, ESPN New York's Adam Rubin reports.

This is pretty awesome for d'Arnaud's fantasy value, as it should help maximize his at-bats while offering him the chance to hit with a high OBP guy, Curtis Granderson, ahead of him and a potent power bat, Lucas Duda, behind him. Wright could be out for at least a couple weeks, so d'Arnaud will be a good play in all formats during that stretch.

D'Arnaud went 2-for-4 with a triple and an RBI in Monday's opener against the Nationals.

D'Arnaud underwent surgery on his right elbow in October and dealt with a minor finger ailment during the spring, but appears to be back to full health heading into the regular season. The 26-year-old figures to serve as the club's primary catcher, but he'll need to improve upon his 2014 campaign which featured a .242 batting average and .302 OBP to become a reliable starting option for fantasy owners.

D'Arnaud (finger) will return to the lineup Tuesday, Adam Rubin of ESPNNewYork.com reports.
