Why Travis d’Arnaud should never catch Noah Syndergaard | New York Post

I watched most of yesterday’s day. He’s right; this should never happen again.

Travis d’Arnaud’s Problem? Throwing With ‘Too Much Arm’ - The New York Times

Getting it all the way to second base is definitely a good goal.

“It takes a lot of stress off my arm and makes it easier to get it all the way to second base, and it makes you more consistent,” d’Arnaud said later.

Mets need their catching guru to make Travis d’Arnaud a force | New York Post

“It was great, a ton of work,’’ d’Arnaud said. “Sometimes I rush throwing. He showed me a lot of videos where he said I was really, really quick, but in my mind it looked like I was slow. A lot of it is just slow it down and make a clean throw. We hit it off right from the get-go. We started cracking jokes and haven’t stopped since.’’

The two continue to talk and will exchange videos until pitchers and catchers officially report Feb. 13.

As for his new batting setup, d’Arnaud said, “We wanted to eliminate the wrap. We watched a lot of film, too. A lot of the balls I hit well, I thought I was wrapping and I actually wasn’t wrapping. I know now where to start my hands to stay consistent.’’

Travis d’Arnaud must show Mets are right to pass on Matt Wieters - NY Daily News

To recover that power, however, he has to avoid last year’s return to his bad habit of wrapping his bat around his head so dramatically in his stance, which may have been the result of his early-season shoulder injury .

“It just makes his swing way too long to put the barrel on the ball with any consistency,’’ an NL scout said Wednesday. “The Mets know it. I talked to Terry Collins at the winter meetings and he said they tried to fix it but he’d keep going back to it under the stress of the season.

“They’re hoping they can take care of it in spring training. If they can, he’s shown the ability to be an above-average offensive catcher.”
