Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud has been placed on the seven-day concussion disabled list after being struck on the head by Alfonso Soriano‘s backswing Tuesday night.

d’Arnaud actually stayed in the game, but had a headache afterward and then underwent further testing. As manager Terry Collins summarized the situation yesterday: “We’re very, very cautious and he is not feeling 100 percent.”

Triple-A catcher Juan Centeno got the call-up to replace d’Arnaud on the roster and will back up Anthony Recker.

d’Arnaud was off to a poor start before the injury, hitting just .196 in 31 games after batting .202 in 31 games during his big-league debut last season.

    When it comes to his health, if d’Arnaud did not have bad luck, he would have no luck at all.

      The dude has ~200 plate appearances in the majors. He had plenty of success hitting in the minors. Give him a chance, at least.
