Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud landed on the 7-day concussion disabled list last week after he was hit in the head by Yankees designated hitter/outfielder Alfonso Soriano, but Adam Rubin of ESPN New York reports the young catcher has now been cleared for baseball activities.
D’Arnaud suffered from “a lot of headaches,” as well as sensitivity to light and sound and difficulty sleeping after the concussion, but he felt symptom-free for the first time on Wednesday. He has been cleared to participate running, throwing, and hitting in the cage, but Mets manager Terry Collins said he’d like to see him go on a brief minor league rehab assignment before being activated. He’d still have to get the OK from doctors to return to game action.
D’Arnaud was a key piece of the deal that sent R.A. Dickey to the Blue Jays, but he has yet to enjoy sustained success so far in the majors. The 25-year-old owns a .199/.280/.289 batting line through 226 plate appearances.
