Mets' Travis d'Arnaud: Two hits in spring opener
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

D'Arnaud went 2-for-2 in Friday's Grapefruit League opener against the Red Sox.

After retooling his swing in the offseason, this was exactly the kind of start d'Arnaud was looking for this spring. He's locked in as the starting catcher to begin 2017, but will need to stay healthy and continue hitting to keep Rene Rivera and Kevin Plawecki from cutting into his playing time.

Mets' Travis d'Arnaud: Targeting 100 games in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

Mets manager Terry Collins told d'Arnaud that the team wants him to play about 100 games this season, the New York Post reports.

That doesn't seem like a particularly high target, but d'Arnaud's career high in games played is 108, set in 2014, due to his inability to stay healthy. If he does regain the form he showed a couple of years ago he could be a sleeper, but the 28-year-old carries too much risk to be anything more than an endgame option at catcher in most fantasy formats.

Mets' Travis d'Arnaud: Retools swing in offseason
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

D'Arnaud has spent the offseason completely retooling his swing, as well as working on his throwing mechanics behind the plate, the New York Post reports.

The 27-year-old catcher is coming off the worst offensive season of his career, and while d'Arnaud's inability to stay healthy certainly played a big role in his .630 OPS, the length of his swing was also an issue. Eliminating his habit of wrapping the bat around his head while in his stance, and taking a more direct path to the ball, could help him recapture the promise he showed in 2015 when he hit 12 home runs with an .825 OPS in 67 games. The Mets still have Kevin Plawecki and Rene Rivera on hand to provide competition, but d'Arnaud will get at least one more chance to establish himself as the team's catcher of both the present and the future.

Mets' Travis d'Arnaud: Avoids arbitration
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

D'Arnaud agreed to a one-year, $1.875 million deal with the Mets on Friday, avoiding arbitration, FanRag Sports' Jon Heyman reports.

He is on track to enter the year as the Mets' No. 1 catcher, but on the heels of posting a 74 wRC+ with just four home runs and a .247 average in 276 plate appearances, his draft day price will be as low as ever. While a bounce back of sorts should be expected, d'Arnaud no longer looks like a high-upside option at the position.

Mets' Travis d'Arnaud: Not a lock to be Mets' top catcher in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | Special to CBSSports.com

The Mets plan "to at least keep their eye open for external options for their top catcher role," Adam Rubin of ESPN.com reports.

Injury issues continued to haunt d'Arnaud in 2016, with elbow and shoulder problems forcing him to miss most of the first half. It's hard to blame the Mets for being open to finding a more durable option, but it could be difficult to find a catcher on the market that can match d'Arnaud's upside and his price.
