The thing of it is that the knee and now this foot injury were both freakish in nature and just something that all catchers are subject to.   How many times a week do we see a collision at the plate or a foul ball off the bat hitting the catcher? This is what happened both times with D’Arnaud and it could have been any other catcher as well, just fill in the blank. Original Post by Joe D. on 4/17 Sandy Alderson just announced that Travis d’Arnaud has a non-displaced fracture in the first metatarsal in his left foot
