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…

Ruben Tejada’s struggles in the field are troubling

While we were worried about his hitting in Spring Training, the last thing we thought we’d have to worry about from Ruben Tejada was his defense. Well, after an abysmal start defensively, Tejada (six errors thus far) is causing a lot of headaches for a Mets’ team with little margin for error. Tejada has been the poster boy for bad defense by the Mets. In their first 13 games...
