Travis d'Arnaud will bat fifth Thursday against the Braves.

And why not? D'Arnaud is batting .300/.340/.560 with three home runs and four doubles in 13 games since returning from the minors. He has earned a promotion in the batting order with his hot-hitting and could stick there if he keeps it up.

Travis d'Arnaud belted a two-run home run, his only hit in three at-bats, as the Mets defeated the Braves on Wednesday.

d'Arnaud has been performing better since returning from a two-week demotion to Triple-A. His seventh-inning two-run home run, his third in 13 games since returning and sixth of the season, off of Ervin Santana padded his team's lead to 4-1. The catcher is slashing .213/.289/.354 with 19 RBI on the season.

Travis d'Arnaud hit a go-ahead two-run double in a 6-5 win over the Rangers on Friday night.

The game was tied at 4-4 before d'Arnaud delivered with a double to the right-center field gap in the bottom of the eighth inning. It's early, but it sure looks like something clicked for him during his brief time in the minors. He's hitting .303 (10-for-33) with one home run, three doubles, and six RBI over nine games since his return to the big club. It's time to give him another try in two-catcher mixed leagues.

Mets recalled C Travis d'Arnaud from Triple-A Las Vegas.

D'Arnaud demoted to Triple-A Las Vegas earlier this month after he hit just .180/.271/.273 over his first 39 games this season, but he earned his way back in a hurry. The 25-year-old backstop hit .436 (24-for-55) with six home runs, eight doubles, and 16 RBI over 15 games in Triple-A. The Mets will have to hope that the success in the minors will result in some newfound confidence at the major league level. He could be worth a flier in two-catcher mixed fantasy leagues.

The Mets will recall Travis d'Arnaud from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday.

D'Arnaud has earned his way back to the majors by batting a ridiculous .403/.448/.871 with seven homers and 18 RBI over 17 games at Vegas. The 25-year-old has hit only .189/.277/.269 across his first 257 major league plate appearances, but don't forget that he's a former top prospect. D'Arnaud might be worth a shot again in deeper mixed leagues.

The Mets plan to promote catcher Travis d'Arnaud for next week's series versus the Athletics.

Since his demotion to Triple-A Las Vegas on June 7, the young catcher has been on a roll, hitting .395 with five home runs and 10 RBI in 38 plate appearances. He may be worth trying again in deeper mixed fantasy leagues.

Mike Puma of the New York Post hears that Travis d'Arnaud will be recalled "soon."

D'Arnaud is hitting a blistering .348/.412/.804 with six homers over 12 games since his demotion to Triple-A Las Vegas, so he's apparently found his stroke at the plate. The backstop batted .180/.271/.273 before being optioned earlier this month but certainly has more upside offensively than he's shown.

Mets manager Terry Collins said Thursday that he'd like Travis d'Arnaud to get 40-50 at-bats at Triple-A Las Vegas before the club considers recalling him.

"It's not going to happen in five or six days," Collins said. "I think he needs to be there a couple weeks. He needs to accumulate some at-bats." D'Arnaud has six hits -- including a pair of home runs -- over his first 10 at-bats at Las Vegas, so it appears he's starting to rediscover his stroke at the plate. "It obviously shows you one thing: he's not pouting," Collins said. "He's got something to prove, and he went down there to prove it. And I love that."
