Mets C d'Arnaud headed for Tommy John surgery


Two days after catcher Travis d'Arnaud landed on the disabled list with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, Kevin Plawecki is joining him. Still, the Mets returned home with an eight-game winning streak and a 10-1 start, the best in franchise history.

Tomas Nido is now the only backstop on the Mets' 25-man roster with d'Arnaud and Plawecki sidelined. "We're going to have to have guys step up".

D'Arnaud went on the disabled list Wednesday for the fifth consecutive year and was transferred to the 60-day DL on Friday.

D'Arnaud (elbow) will miss the entirety of the 2017 season after deciding to undergo Tommy John surgery Friday, Anthony DiComo of reports.

"I didn't say a word for about a minute". Updates with d'Arnaud to have Tommy John surgery, Lobaton added to roster.

He'll miss the remainder of the 2018 season. While a postgame X-ray was negative, an MRI in NY on Thursday showed a hairline fracture. "It's only a couple of weeks out of a very long season".

"Again, I think immediately the answer is no", Alderson said when asked if he feels a need to improve immediately behind the plate.

The Mets announced on Friday morning that Plawecki has a hairline fracture in his left hand and will be placed on the 10-day DL. Lobaton is batting eighth against right-hander Zach Davies. Nido hit.232 with eight homers and 60 RBI past year at Double-A. "The question is whether he's ready to hit at the major league level". During the Mets' 2015 World Series season, he broke his right hand after being hit by a pitch, missing 46 games.
