With one out in the ninth inning on Tuesday night, Yankees outfielder Alfonso Soriano struck out against reliever Jeurys Familia. Soriano smacked Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud on the head on his backswing, sending him backwards a bit. d’Arnaud stayed in the game after indicating that he was okay to Mets manager Terry Collins and the team trainer.
ESPN’s Adam Rubin reports, however, that Collins intimated on SNY’s pregame show that d’Arnaud will end up on the seven-day concusion disabled list. The team doesn’t have to make an official move until tomorrow, so nothing is official yet.
Alderson on d’Arnaud: “I would say he may need a few days.” That’s why sounds like 7-day concussion DL to me.

Should d’Arnaud sit out for a week, the Mets would utilize Anthony Recker on an everyday basis, and would likely promote Juan Centeno to serve as the back-up for a short while.
