Mets must trade for Lucroy — even if it means giving up Wheeler - NY Daily News

Is it really panic time? Mets fans should be happy Harper isn’t GM. Travis is scheduled to come back in less than a week.

Yes, Travis d’Arnaud is on his way back from his shoulder injury, and he could provide some of the much-needed pop for the Mets’ offense.

But it’s clear that gambling on d’Arnaud staying healthy for months at a time is a longshot at best, especially now that he has had a problem with his throwing shoulder in addition to various other injuries.

As it is, d’Arnaud already had issues with his throwing, especially last October, and right now the Mets need a strong arm behind the plate as teams are running at will on the bases against them, especially when Kevin Plawecki is catching.

New York Mets’ Travis d’Arnaud resumes throwing, headed to Port St. Lu - Mets Blog- ESPN

New York Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud has resumed throwing at home in California and should report to the team’s Florida complex midweek, assistant general manager John Ricco said Monday.

D’Arnaud has been on the disabled list since April 26 with a strained right rotator cuff. He has been working at home with his personal physical therapist/trainer.

Mets’ Travis d’Arnaud’s return from DL unknown | mets.com

This doesn’t sound good.

A week after landing on the 15-day disabled list with a strained right rotator cuff, Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud still has not advanced to any sort of physical activity. The Mets have no timetable on when d’Arnaud, who is resting and receiving treatment at the team’s Spring Training complex in Port St. Lucie, Fla., might be able to begin throwing.

“I can’t predict that,” manager Terry Collins said. “A lot of times you come in the morning, and if he’s feeling good a couple days in a row, they might start getting him on a throwing program. But right now, he’s still just getting treatment.”

Mets catcher Plawecki opens up about sinus surgery, d’Arnaud - NY Daily News

They like each other. They really like each other.

“I’m sure it’s something that’s going to be entertained,” he added. “Me and Trav are open for anything. We both just want to win. That’s who we are.”

Though they play the same position and therefore compete for playing time, Plawecki and d’Arnaud are big pals. Last year, when d’Arnaud was hurt, they sat together on the bench, dissecting situations. D’Arnaud, the more experienced player, sometimes would proffer ideas — hey, maybe you should’ve gone out to talk to the pitcher last inning.

“He made my transition last year more comfortable,” Plawecki said. “He taught me a lot and I appreciate that.”

Mets’ d’Arnaud cranks up hopes for ‘hell of a year’ after hell of a trip | New York Post

Health is his biggest question mark.

“That’s how you learn, from your failures,’’ said d’Arnaud, who hit .268 during the season with 12 home runs, drove in 41 runs and posted an .825 OPS but only played in 67 games because of injuries. He bounced back, crushing three home runs in the first two rounds of the postseason.

Most of all he wants to stay healthy for his pitchers, whom he raved about.
