The good news for Mets prospect Travis d’Arnaud is that he won’t need surgery to repair a non-displaced fracture in his left foot. The bad news is that manager Terry Collins told Adam Rubin of ESPN New York that the Triple-A catcher is expected to miss eight weeks.

d’Arnaud was off to a solid start at Triple-A, posting a .901 OPS through 12 games, but took a foul ball off his foot while catching. John Buck‘s shockingly good start meant the Mets weren’t going to be in a rush to call up d’Arnaud anyway, but now this injury likely means a promotion wouldn’t come until the second half.

d’Arnaud, who was acquired from the Blue Jays in the R.A. Dickey trade, ranked among MLB’s top 25 prospects this season and last season according to Baseball America.

    I wish him a speedy recovery. It is a shame that he keeps getting injured.
