Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud is back on the active roster after spending two weeks on the seven-day concussion disabled list.
He returns after playing three minor-league rehab games at Double-A, where he went 1-for-8 with a homer and most importantly reported feeling no further post-concussion symptoms.
d’Arnaud hit just .196 with three homers and a .588 OPS in 31 games before being hit on the catcher’s mask by Alfonso Soriano‘s backswing on May 13.
Anthony Recker got most of the action behind the plate in d’Arnaud’s absence, with Juan Centeno backing him up, but d’Arnaud figures to resume being the Mets’ primary catcher.
