The Mets announced after Saturday’s game that Travis d’Arnaud, currently on the seven-day concussion disabled list, will begin a rehab assignment with Double-A Binghamton on Sunday.
D’Arnaud was injured after being struck in the head with a backswing by Alfonso Soriano on May 13. D’Arnaud started to feel symptoms at the conclusion of the game, and was placed on the disabled list on May 14.
After passing post-concussion tests, d’Arnaud was cleared for baseball activity on Thursday and has been hitting, running, and throwing since then.
D’Arnaud said on Thursday that he’ll be switching from his hockey-style catchers mask to the traditional style mask when he returns.
Having been out only a short while, d’Arnaud’s rehab stint should be brief.
When d’Arnaud returns, it’s expected that Juan Centeno will be sent down to Triple-A Las Vegas to make room.
