Fantasy Analysis | 1405035356
Travis d'Arnaud emerging as mixed-league catcher
by Scott White | Senior Fantasy Writer

It's too early to tell anything -- most any player can go off for a two-week stretch -- but the timing of this particular hot streak and the history of the player in question make it too enticing to ignore.

In 13 games since returning from the minors, Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud is hitting .300 (15 for 50) with three home runs and a .900 OPS.

No, his plate discipline hasn't been especially good -- he has 13 strikeouts to just three walks during that stretch -- but that wasn't exactly his calling card in the minors either. He was just a good hitter, routinely hitting well over .300 with plus power.

It's worth noting he hit .436 (24 for 55) with six home runs and a 1.384 OPS during his stint in the minors, but that was at Triple-A Las Vegas of the Pacific Coast League, a level he dominated while in the Blue Jays organization as well. Still, it all plays into d'Arnaud's theory that he was simply trying to do too much in his previous stints in the majors.

So a former top prospect who struggles to find his footing in the majors gets sent down, rediscovers his stroke and comes back to put up the numbers everyone from him all along. Again, it's not an open-and-shut case, but if you need a catcher (perhaps if you lost Yadier Molina), it's reason enough to act.

Travis d'Arnaud slugs sixth home run Wednesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud went 1 for 3 with a two-run home run in his team's 4-1 win over the Braves Wednesday.

d'Arnaud has picked up at least one hit in 12 of his 13 games since returning from the minor leagues, and Wednesday's home run was his third in that span. He has hit .213/.289/.354 with six home runs and 19 RBI in 178 at-bats.

Travis d'Arnaud coming on strong for Mets
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud hasn't been tearing it up, but he has proven to be steady and productive in recent weeks.

d'Arnaud has hit safely in nine of his last 10 games with 11 hits in 37 at-bats. Included were three doubles and two home runs as d'Arnaud has racked up seven RBI during that period. He has lifted his batting average from .180 to .206 and his still-weak .333 slugging percentage is at its highest point since May 1.

Travis d'Arnaud could finally be turning into reliable option
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

It didn't take long for Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud to make an impact in his first game back from the minors, clubbing a three-run homer off Scott Kazmir during Tuesday's win against the A's. Tuesday's performance should be even further proof why you should consider adding d'Arnaud to your Fantasy roster.

d'Arnaud was a player featured in this week's Waiver Wire column, and I'm not backing down from my assessment. In fact, Tuesday's home run only strengthens it. 

The Mets demoted d'Arnaud in early June to get his confidence up, and he's done exactly that. He posted ridiculous numbers following his demotion, and it seems he's ready to carry that over into the majors. Perhaps we should take his minor-league numbers with a little grain of salt since he was back in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League. However, manager Sandy Alderson said not all of d'Arnaud's home runs were in hitter's parks and some came against top-quality pitching. 

d'Arnaud came into the season as a fringe starter in Fantasy, as many of us were anticipating a breakout season. It might have taken a little longer than expected to happen, but now might be the time to start gaining confidence in d'Arnaud living up to his potential.

Travis d'Arnaud returns in style with home run Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud celebrated his return to the big leagues by going 1 for 4 with a three-run home run in Tuesday's 10-1 win over the A's.

d'Arnaud blew the game open with a third inning home run that put his team up 7-1. He racked up six home runs in 15 games with Triple-A Las Vegas during his stint in the minors and may have his power stroke back on track. The catcher has hit .182/.270/.295 with four home runs and 12 RBI in 132 at-bats with the Mets.
