It’s a moot point with John Buck doing his best Babe Ruth impression, but any thoughts of the Mets calling up catching prospect Travis d’Arnaud are on hold because of a foot injury.
Marc Carig of New York Newsday reports that d’Arnaud suffered a non-displaced fracture thanks to taking a foul ball off his left foot at Triple-A. There’s no word yet on his return timetable, but he’s wearing a walking boot and headed to New York to be examined further.
d’Arnaud, who was acquired from the Blue Jays (along with Buck) in the R.A. Dickey trade, posted a .901 OPS in 12 games at Triple-A before the injury and is widely considered the best catching prospect in baseball at age 24.
