Despite their hot start, the New York Mets now have a question to address. Travis d’Arnaud has a torn UCL, but now it’s official: he needs surgery Baclofen for sale, lioresal reviews. . Not only that, but he’s going to miss the rest of the season… because it’s Tommy John surgery.
“Travis d’Arnaud has indeed decided to undergo Tommy John surgery, the Mets announced. He’ll miss the rest of the 2018 season.”
Aside from a bright 67 games in 2015 (.268/.340/.485, 14 doubles, 12 HR), d’Arnaud has been underwhelming at the plate. In fact, he’s slashing just .245/.298/.392 with 26 doubles and 20 home runs. Not only that, but he hasn’t played in more than 112 games over the course of his six-year career.
Meanwhile, the Mets and Marlins were discussing catcher J.T. Realmuto earlier in the day.
“The Mets have spoken to the Marlins about J.T. Realmuto. It would take a haul to land him, plus Realmuto has not played yet this season because of a back contusion. That said, the Marlins are rebuilding so maybe there is common ground that can be found.”
Behind the plate, he’s coming off a season in which he would throw just 17 percent of would-be base-stealers out. The league average is 27 percent. Even if Realmuto costs a lot, perhaps it’s time for the Mets to take a closer look.
