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 |

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.”
