d'Arnaud has gone deep twice in his past three games, which gives him nine homers in 261 at-bats. The 25-year-old was expected to be rejuvenated after a brief Minor League stretch last month, but his numbers in the second half don't look much different that those that he posted early in the season. For now, d'Arnaud is just another low batting average catcher with respectable power, but he still offers plenty of upside. He should be owned in all NL-only leagues and two-catcher formats, while mixed league owners should keep a watchful eye to see if his hot streak continues in the coming days.
Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud went 2-for-4 with a homer and two runs scored against the Phillies on Friday.
After a mid-June stint in the Minor leagues, d’Arnaud has impressed as a Major League regular, batting .272 with five homers and 19 RBIs in his past 34 games. It is hard to draw too many conclusions about the young backstop, but a .344/.411/.633 line in 101 Triple-A games suggests he still has a lot to show.
Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud went 3-for-4 with a home run, three RBIs and two doubles on Monday against the Phillies.
d'Arnaud has struggled in his first taste of regular action in the Major Leagues with a .232/.298/.379 line, but he has been showing signs of coming out of it in July. During the month, the backstop has gone 21-for-73 (.288) with three of his seven home runs on the season. With the power showing, perhaps the former top prospect is ready to perform up to expectations. Those who have struggled to fill the catcher's spot in fantasy might want to take a look.
