Travis d'Arnaud smacks 11th home run Tuesday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud served as the designated hitter Tuesday and went 1 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 6-2 loss to the A's Tuesday.

d'Arnaud broke a scoreless tie with his shot in the top of the fourth inning, but the A's were able to pick up four runs in the bottom half of the inning and hold the lead over the remainder of the game. He has hit .227/.293/.395 with 11 home runs and 31 RBI in 286 at-bats.

Fantasy Analysis | 1407946514
Travis d'Arnaud has arrived as a No. 1 catcher
by Al Melchior | Data Analyst

In CBSSports.com leagues, there are currently 15 catchers who have a higher ownership rate than Travis d'Arnaud's 57 percent. Outside of very deep leagues, D'Arnaud is not serving very many owners as a No. 1 catcher. Based on what he has done over the past seven weeks, that needs to change.

Since coming back from a minor league rehab stint on June 24, d'Arnaud has been the fourth-ranked catcher in standard Rotisserie leagues and fifth in Head-to-Head points leagues. After struggling to hit for power duirng his initial callup late last season and again early this season, d'Arnaud is finally collecting extra-base hits, just like he did in the upper minors.

There should be little doubt that d'Arnaud has taken his game up a notch. All six home runs he has hit since returning to the Mets have been categorized by the ESPN Hit Tracker as having "plenty" of distance (one actually fell into the "No Doubt" category). He also has a .270 batting average with 10 doubles over this recent stretch, but with a .287 BABIP, d'Arnaud doesn't appear to be benefitting from good luck on balls in play.

Perhaps most encouraging, the average distance of d'Arnaud's flyballs has increased dramatically since his return. According to BaseballHeatMaps.com, in d'Arnaud's first 39 games this year, he averaged 264 feet in flyball distance, but over his 37 games since, that mark has jumped to 287 feet.

As I noted in a recent blog post, d'Arnaud's surge in productivity hasn't done much for his Fantasy popularity in recent weeks, while other catchers with more limited upside, like Caleb Joseph and J.P. Arencibia have been getting picked up in droves. Not only is d'Arnaud a better mixed league pickup than either of these two backstops, but he is likely to be more productive going forward than Brian McCann or Kurt Suzuki, both of whom are far more widely owned.

If you're disappointed with the production of your catcher in a one-catcher league, it's time to give d'Arnaud a try. Chances are good that he will be there for the taking on your league's waiver wire.

Travis d'Arnaud set to sit Monday against Phillies
by Marty Gitlin | CBSSports.com

Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud has slugged two home runs in his last three games, but he will be hard-pressed to make it three of four. He is out of the lineup for the Monday afternoon game in Philadelphia. Anthony Recker will crouch behind the plate instead.

d'Arnaud has six hits with six runs scored in the last five games after starting August in a slump.

Travis d'Arnaud slugs eighth home run Friday
by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud went 2 for 4 with a solo home run in his team's 5-4 win over the Phillies Friday.

d'Arnaud began August hitless in 10 at-bats over a four-game span, but he's 4 for 11 with a double and a home run in his last three outings. He has hit .225/.289/.375 with eight home runs and 28 RBI in 253 at-bats.
