First homer brightens loss for Travis d'Arnaud
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud continued to emerge from his early-season slumber Friday night with a solo home run in the eighth inning of an extra-inning defeat to the Angels.

It was his only hit of the game, but his first blast of the year made him 4 for 15 after he had been hitless in his first 16 at-bats this season. He still has plenty of work to do to raise his .129 batting average to a respectable level.

Travis d'Arnaud sits Saturday
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud will sit for the first time Saturday.

The club will go with Anthony Recker behind the plate. d'Arnaud has gotten off to a slow start, going hitless in 12 at-bats to open the season. He'll likely return to the lineup Sunday.

Hitting coach expects improvement from Travis d'Arnaud
by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Mets hitting coach Dave Hudgens expects catcher Travis d'Arnaud to improve at the plate this season, according to ESPN.

Hudgens said d'Arnaud was probably trying too hard last season. "It looked like he was trying to hit every ball out of the ballpark and overswinging a little bit and probably just trying to do too much," Hudgens said. He added that d'Arnaud has been much more relaxed in camp this year.

While Hudgens wouldn't discuss what he expects from the young catcher, he does seem encouraged by d'Arnaud's skills. Hudgens said he believes more reps is all d'Arnaud needs to turn into a strong player. 

Last season, d'Arnaud hit .202/.286/.263 in 99 at-bats.

Fantasy Analysis | 1392226542
Drafting Travis d'Arnaud as starter has risk
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

I like what I'm hearing from Mets rookie catcher Travis d'Arnaud, who said he spent the offseason working on simplifying his offensive approach after hitting a disappointing .202 in 31 games last season. He was a pretty good hitter in the minors, so there is little concern he will eventually find his footing in the majors.

Look, d'Arnaud isn't the first and won't be the last highly touted catching prospect to struggle offensively after his promotion to the majors. Most rookie catchers are burdened with defensive responsibilities upon their promotion and don't have the time to dedicate the attention needed to offense. But it sounds like d'Arnaud took care of that in the offseason, so maybe we will see a different hitter in 2014.

As far as his Draft Day value, catcher is a deeper position than you think. You could end up with players like Matt Wieters, Salvador Perez, Evan Gattis and Wilson Ramos in the middle rounds and be happy.

I'm not sure you want to go into your draft with the strategy d'Arnaud is going to be your starter. He definitely has upside, but d'Arnaud is more of a late-round Fantasy sleeper and you are probably better off bringing him off your bench in standard Head-to-Head leagues.

Travis d'Arnaud worked on shortening his swing
by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com

Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud told reporters Monday about some of the changes he made to his offensive approach this season after he hit a disappointing .202 following his promotion to the majors last season.

"I worked on just shortening my swing," he said, per the New York Post. "Last year, I feel like every pitch, I was thinking something about my swing compared to focusing on the ball and focusing on seeing the ball and hitting the ball. I just have to slow the game down, and toward the end I started feeling a little more comfortable and a lot of weight came off my shoulders."
