Things were going too good...

Big news from the Mets: Travis d'Arnaud has a partial tear of the UCL in his right elbow. He could need Tommy John surgery. He's on the DL, and Tomas Nido is up.

Ah... the other shoe had to drop sooner than later. Things were definitely going too well for us.

Travis just can't stay healthy. Ever. What can you do...

Plawecki just became much more important.
Aaaaand here we go

1st major injury of the season for the Mets.
Surprised it took until April 11th.
Well it only took 10 games

Fingers crossed that this doesnít start a trend.
What the fuck!

Here is a golden chance for Plawecki, shecky

#Mets promoted Nido to replace d'Arnaud (elbow). I wonder if that is about Nido being on 40-man roster because in spring I sensed NYM folks liked how Lobaton handled the pitchers, plus that his LH bat offered some diversification in a catching platoon.
This is a good opportunity to upgrade - TDA just never panned out  
Eric on Li : 4/11/2018 2:58 pm : link
not saying they need to make a move, Plawecki may be that upgrade. Heck, Nido's defense is probably an upgrade maybe they get lucky and he unexpectedly hits a little the way Jesus Flores did a few years back for the Nats.
Lobaton isnt going to offer anything on offense  
figgy2989 : 4/11/2018 2:59 pm : link
Would rather roll the dice with Plaw and Nido.
Time to call Oakland

About Lucroy
Likely a 40-man plan  
Metnut : 4/11/2018 3:03 pm : link
play by promoting Nido.

TDA is always on the DL. It was a risk going into camp with just him and Plawecki. Not the end of the world though. Plawecki and Nido will get a shot here and it won't be too hard to trade for a catcher later on if needed.
Shecky got his voodoo doll out  
jpkmets : 4/11/2018 3:07 pm : link
OK, Plaw, you got a full-time shot.

Do something
And so ends the TDA adventure.

About Lucroy


He is on a 1yr/$6.5M deal, which is pretty cheap. Wonder what it would cost in the way of prospects.
Sucks... TDA finished 2017 strong  
ZGiants98 : 4/11/2018 3:23 pm : link
And was actually fairly healthy... he also was our best hitter in spring training overall. Weíll never see a fully healthy roster. Big blow. Plawecki better not fuck this up.
Thankfully Syndergaard  
steve in ky : 4/11/2018 3:24 pm : link
turned out to be so good since TDA was the main piece in the Dickey trade and has never really lived up to the original expectations.
Oakland can keep Lucroy...  
ZGiants98 : 4/11/2018 3:27 pm : link
Major Pass.
I feel for TDA...  
Chris684 : 4/11/2018 3:31 pm : link
Sucks that it happened from that standpoint. I'm just not sure how big a loss this is on the field.

He still can not throw anyone out, and Keith had pointed out several times that the long loopy swing was still not going away.

That said, they have to find a serviceable option to go along with Plaw.
Doubt

TDA ever plays another game for the Mets.
If you want to add a catcher  
ZGiants98 : 4/11/2018 3:40 pm : link
Go get Realmuto. Iíd give up Gimenez +
That is really a bummer for him...  
DonQuixote : 4/11/2018 3:56 pm : link
I am not seeing it as a huge setback for the team, however.

Let's not read too much into this as far as team health is concerned, though I do share the trepidation. The Mets can look pretty good when healthy and it is scary to think about a repeat of last season.

However, I do see a difference this year, especially at the manager position and the more creative approach to pitching and base running.

Thatís exactly what I was thinking. Except he has a bad back. So I would not give up a ton for him
Give Nido  
giantsFC : 4/11/2018 4:28 pm : link
the chances. He supposedly has some good game calling ability and defensive pluses.

Miguel Montero is sitting on the DFA market right now...
Montero  
Shecky : 4/11/2018 4:57 pm : link
May be the only catcher WORSE than TDA. Iíd rather TDA missing a ligament than Montero

You can get Realmuto for less than Gimenez, why give up Gimenez +?
you think  
CMicks3110 : 4/11/2018 5:07 pm : link
realmuto costs less than gimenez?
I honestly don't see it as a big blow  
mphbullet36 : 4/11/2018 5:08 pm : link
his arm was such a problem behind the plate. He might be the worst at throwing runners out and couple that with a sub par pitching staff in terms of holding runners on.

If Nido or Lobaton can throw I don't think its a big loss at all. If we had to lose something he is easiest to replace IMO.

sucks for him obviously but teams ran on us like nobody's business.
I donít think splitting time was going to work  
Vanzetti : 4/11/2018 5:34 pm : link
Make Plaw the everyday catcher and if he isnít hitting by July trade for someone

If his back checks out and he costs LESS than Gimenez sign me the hell up. The guy is a top 3 catcher if healthy and under control next year too.

I don't see how he would be had for less than Gimenez. Realmuto is only 27 and one of the best catchers in baseball. He is also under team control until 2020 I believe.
Maybe his uCL has something to do

I don't remember him ever being good at throwing runners out. He was always "Bat makes up for defensive/pitching weaknesses" except his bat never matched projections.
Any other catchers out there?

And lets not forget that he is good a "framing" pitches.
