How did he fare in 2016?
If you were worried about Travis d’Arnaud’s long-term status with the Mets going into this past season, you came out even worse. D’Arnaud’s 2016 campaign was again cut short by injury, and he again played less than a full season.
On April 23, d’Arnaud was again sidelined, this time with a strained right rotator cuff. He came back to the team towards the end of June, but his offense was a no-show.
Compared to 2015, he played in eight more games in 2016 and had eight more plate appearances, but his numbers completely dropped off the face of the planet. He hit just four home runs, and drove in 15 runs all year. Fifteen. His OPS dropped almost 200 points, from .825 to .629, in the span of one season.
To say 2016 was a lost season would be an understatement.
