Another Blue Jays catcher honored
On the heels of J.P. Arencibia winning American League Player of the Week honors, the man some think will eventually supplant Arencibia behind the plate in Toronto was chosen as the Prospect Watch Player of the Week.

Travis d'Arnaud, ranked No. 22 on MLB.com's Top 100 Prospects list and No. 1 on the Blue Jays' Top 20, hit .417/.440/.875 in six games for Triple-A Las Vegas, with his 1.315 OPS among the highest in the Minors for the week. The catcher had three homers and six RBIs and struck out just twice in 21 at-bats.

After starting the season slowly -- he was hitting .222 on April 24 -- d'Arnaud has been looking much more like the prospect who hit .311/.371/.542 in Double-A a year ago. He's hit .306/.351/.583 in May and is up to a .293 average overall with seven homers, 21 RBIs and a .497 SLG.
