Travis d’Arnaud headed for concussion test


UPDATE, 8:49 PM:

According to Mets general manager Sandy Alderson, Travis d’Arnaud passed an initial concussion test on Tuesday night.

However, d’Arnaud was not feeling 100 percent on Wednesday, and underwent additional concussion tests.

Alderson said that the results of those tests were in, and that d’Arnaud may need “a few days.”

In the likeliest scenario, d’Arnaud will land on the seven-day concussion disabled list.

ORIGINAL ARTICLE:

Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud was struck on the top of the helmet by an Alfonso Soriano backswing late during Tuesday’s game, and is not feeling 100 percent on Wednesday.

D’Arnaud is not in Wednesday night’s lineup.

According to Mets general manager Sandy Alderson, d’Arnaud has had some concussion-like symptoms, and is headed for a concussion test.

After getting struck on Wednesday, d’Arnaud was visited by trainer Ray Ramirez and manager Terry Collins, but remained in the game after a brief delay.

Thoughts:

The fact that d’Arnaud remained in the game on Wednesday after getting struck would seem to indicate that he wasn’t “out of it” immediately afterwards, but you never know when it comes to head injuries.

If it comes to it, there is a seven-day disabled list for concussions that the Mets can place d’Arnaud on.

    A concussion would explain a lot. He really can’t play baseball very well at all. Did he bump his head in March? (of 2013?)

      I agree with you. They are bending over backwards for this kid. He should be playing maybe 50% of the time not 80%. He is a weak hitter and his defense is not very good. Prospects fail all the time, but some GMs just won’t admit they were wrong in a trade.
