D'Arnaud was released from Triple-A Nashville, T.R. Sullivan of MLB.com reports.
D'Arnaud was hitting just .164 over 45 games for the Sounds. The 32-year-old infielder is free to sign with another team.
D'Arnaud will report to Triple-A to open the season, Evan Grant of The Dallas Morning News reports.
D'Arnaud hit a respectable .286/.444/.500 with a stolen base and a pair of extra-base hits in eight games this spring, but it wasn't enough for him to lock down a bench role. He'll remain in major-league camp for the time being.
D'Arnaud (oblique) is a "full go," Jared Sandler of 105.3 The FAN reports.
It sounds like d'Arnaud is back to full health after dealing with a strained left oblique earlier in camp. The veteran is expected to compete for a bench role, though he seems more likely to open the season in the minors given his career wRC+ of 59 at the highest level.
D'Arnaud will be sidelined for 10-to-14 days due to a strained left oblique, Jeff Wilson of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reports.
This is a tough break for d'Arnaud, who was already on the outside looking in at an Opening Day roster spot. When healthy, the veteran will compete for a bench role, though he seems more likely to open the season in the minors. Even if injuries open up an avenue to playing time with the big club, d'Arnaud's career wRC+ of 59 suggests he won't do much with the opportunity.
D'Arnaud signed a minor-league contract with an invitation to spring training with the Rangers on Monday.
The veteran utility man has received at least some big-league game time in seven of the last eight seasons but has never come to the plate more than 262 times in a year. In 100 plate appearances with the Giants last season, he hit .215/.253/.366, good for a 66 wRC+, an above-average season for a player whose career wRC+ sits at 59. The 31-year-old could make it eight seasons out of nine should injuries strike the Rangers this year but will be unlikely to make a fantasy impact during his time in the big leagues.
d'Arnaud (knee) is not in the lineup for Sunday's game against the Pirates, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
A knee bruise had been affecting d'Arnaud since Tuesday, but he was used as a defensive replacement for the ninth inning in Friday's game, so he appears to be healthy. Evan Longoria and Joe Panik will start at third and second base Sunday, respectively.
D'Arnaud (knee) is not in Thursday's starting nine against the Pirates.
D'Arnaud has been hampered by a knee bruise suffered Tuesday against Houston after fouling a ball off his knee. Given the nature of the injury, he isn't expected to remain out for long, and he should slot into the lineup sometime over the weekend either at second or third base.
D'Arnaud was diagnosed with a left knee contusion, Andrew Baggarly of The Athletic Bay Area reports.
D'Arnaud suffered the injury after fouling a ball off his knee during the fourth inning of Tuesday's game against the Astros. He was subsequently replaced by Alen Hanson. The Giants are off the schedule Wednesday, so d'Arnaud will have an extra day to rest and recover before being reevaluated.
D'Arnaud exited Tuesday's game against the Astros after fouling a ball off his knee, Alex Pavlovic of NBC Sports Bay Area reports.
D'Arnaud was replaced by Alen Hanson in the middle of his fourth-inning at-bat after suffering the injury. Specifics regarding the issue remain unclear at this point, though more should be known after he's further evaluated during the team's off day Wednesday. He was 1-for-2 with an RBI before exiting.
D'Arnaud has worked himself into a platoon at second base, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
D'Arnaud will share time at the keystone with Joe Panik for now, although manager Bruce Bochy said that could change if Joe "gets on a roll," per Schulman. D'Arnaud drew the start for Friday night's matchup against the Diamondbacks with a left-handed pitcher toeing the rubber for the opposition.
D'Arnaud started at second base and went 1-for-3 with a three-run home run in Monday's 5-3 win over the Padres.
D'Arnaud connected for his third homer in 13 games since being called up July 8, and he has provided a healthy .282/.310/.538 slash line over that span. Despite his recent success, the 31-year-old figures to remain in a backup utility role now that Evan Longoria and Joe Panik have returned from their respective DL stints.
D'Arnaud started at third base and went 1-for-4 with an RBI in Tuesday's victory over the Mariners.
D'Arnaud has started six of the 11 games since his callup June 8, batting .300 (9-for-30) with a pair of homers over that span. The utility infielder has been seeing semi-regular starts due to the slew of lefties the Giants have faced recently, but that surge in playing time is about to come to a close with Evan Longoria (hand) nearing a return.
D'Arnaud will serve as the Giants' leadoff hitter and start at third base Sunday against the Giants.
D'Arnaud seems to have worked his way into a platoon at third base with Pablo Sandoval, as the former will enter the lineup for the third consecutive game in which the Giants have opposed a left-handed starting pitcher. Since being promoted from Triple-A Sacramento, d'Arnaud has gone 5-for-17 with a home run, but the 31-year-old's career .226/.281/.314 line over 200 games in the majors suggests he doesn't warrant much intrigue in the fantasy realm.
D'Arnaud went 2-for-7 with a home run and a double in Wednesday's extra-innings win over the Cubs.
D'Arnaud led off the bottom of the first inning with his first home run of the season, then later provided his first double of the year. The 31-year-old hit leadoff in just his second start since joining the major-league club last week, and is 3-for-12 over that span.
D'Arnaud's contract was purchased by the Giants on Saturday.
The 31-year-old has a .223/.278/.306 line in parts of six big-league seasons. He's a versatile player, appearing everywhere but catcher and pitcher over the course of his career, and he'll likely serve a utility role during his time with the club. Joe Panik was placed on the disabled list with a groin strain in a corresponding move.
D'Arnaud was assigned to minor-league camp Monday, Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports.
D'Arnaud figures to open the year at Triple-A Sacramento, although his defensive versatility makes him an appealing reserve option for San Francisco. However, unless injuries become an issue, it's unlikely that d'Arnaud will see regular playing time with the Giants. Over 18 Cactus League games, d'Arnaud went 9-for-32 (.281) and stole five bases.
D'Arnaud signed a minor-league contract with the Giants on Thursday, Chris Cotillo of SB Nation reports.
D'Arnaud bounced around in 2017, spending time with the Braves, Red Sox and Padres. He carved out a small role for himself in San Diego, though it was short-lived as he was designated for assignment after hitting just .143/.176/.245 in 22 games for the Padres. He could compete for a super-utility role in 2018, though he's more likely to serve as an organizational depth piece once again.
D'Arnaud was outrighted to Triple-A El Paso on Friday.
The utility infielder was designated for assignment on Independence Day, and it seems like his sub-.200 batting average wasn't enough to warrant any interest while he was exposed to waivers. His major-league experience could make him a trade chip down the line or even a callup candidate in case of injuries, but for now he'll toil in the minors as an organizational depth piece.
D'Arnaud was designated for assignment by the Padres on Tuesday.
The Padres needed to clear room on the roster for Tuesday's starter, Trevor Cahill, and d'Arnaud was ultimately the roster casualty. The 30-year-old compiled a .143/.176/.245 triple slash in 22 games for the Padres, so it wasn't too difficult of a decision. He could draw interest on waivers given his previous major-league experience coupled with his ability to play multiple positions.
D'Arnaud was reinstated from the paternity list Friday, Dennis Lin of The San Diego Union-Tribune reports.
D'Arnaud was absent for the Padres' series against Atlanta this week as he attended to the birth of his child, but returns in time for the weekend series with the Dodgers. The 30-year-old has seen limited action as a reserve bat this season and hasn't been impressive when he has played, hitting only .200 over 55 at-bats.
