Turns out it was worse than what everyone thought.
Sandy Alderson just announced that Travis d’Arnaud has a non-displaced fracture in the first metatarsal in his left foot.
Alderson said d’Arnaud will travel to New York to visit team doctors at the Hospital for Special Surgery to evaluate the severity of the injury.
Right now, there is no timetable for his return.
As we first reported late last night, d’Arnaud appeared to take a foul ball off his foot while catching in the top of the sixth inning in the Las Vegas 51s’ 3-2 win over Sacramento.
D’Arnaud remained in the game to complete the top of the sixth and was able to walk off the field under his own power, but Landon Powell pinch hit for d’Arnaud, striking out in the bottom of the sixth inning.
D’Arnaud was hitting .250 with five doubles, one home run and eight RBI in 36 at-bats this season.
It’s a terrible blow and lets all pray for the best…
