Mets prospect Travis d’Arnaud has fracture in left foot

Jeez…Travis Bickle spent more time playing a Sport than Travis d’Arnaud.

Mets prospect Travis d’Arnaud has a non-displaced fracture in the first metatarsal of his left foot and is currently in a walking boot, Mets reporters (including Marc Carig) were told Thursday in Colorado. The highly-touted catcher is heading back to New York to be further examined.

D’Arnaud, 24, missed the last few months of the season with a torn PCL in his knee last season, holding him to only 67 games.

In those 67 games, however, d’Arnaud showed what he could do with the bat, hitting .333/.380/.595 with 16 homers, 52 RBI and 21 doubles for Las Vegas.

D’Arnaud was traded to the Mets from the Blue Jays in the R.A. Dickey trade this past offseason. Coincidentally, he’s back in Las Vegas, though, as that is now the Mets’ Triple-A affiliate. In 12 games for Vegas this year, d’Arnaud is hitting .250/.429/.472 with a homer and eight RBI.

Isn't that like 95 OPS+ in Las Vegas?

Well, the Blue Jays clearly won that trade.

I like the intro, Repoz. Harvey Keitel's Sport is one of the creepiest characters on film.

It's OK, we have John Buck.

OK, I'm a Braves fan and carry a strong dislike of the Mets, but this is getting sad. Maybe they need to make some sort of ritual sacrifice or something, because I can't remember a team being this consistently bitten by the luck dragon for this long a period of time. It's like whatever divine being you choose not only doesn't want the Mets to be good, he doesn't want them to be average.

Have the Mets been unlucky? 90% of their misfortune has been created by horrible decision making. Maybe more.

We seem to have let Reyes walk at the right time.

Also worth noting that D'Arnaud was injury-prone before the Mets got their hands on him.

I guess you're right, since 90% of their misfortune has been created by the one horrible decision to trust Bernie Madoff.

8. This was a foul ball off the foot, though, zack. More of a freak thing, really, IMHO.

Fair enough. I guess I really meant more from a fans perspective. A Mets fan would be unlucky, even if the Mets's problems themselves were all self wrought.

That I can agree with. But the alternative was being a Yankee fan.

With the Mets medical staff I expect an amputation is imminent. 50/50 that they perform, the op in on the right foot though.

The Mets may crush your soul, but at least you still have one.

The Mets are unlucky because they're the Mets because they're unlucky.

Also worth noting that D'Arnaud was injury-prone before the Mets got their hands on him.

Part of why he was available, of course. If he'd been playing 150 games a year his upside would be perennial All-Star. He probably wouldn't have been available in trade, and Snydergaard certainly wouldn't have come with him.

Well, in a weird way, this may benefit the Mets. They weren't bringing him up soon, anyway, and if he misses the season they'll just start his clock well into 2014. Since it looks like the Wilpons will hang on for at least another year, pushing the team's window back a year isn't a bad thing.

And WTF does Dragon NaturallySpeaking force you to install large files on your C: drive? Idiots.
