Mets News: Travis d'Arnaud will replace John Buck when he departs for paternity leave


Mets News:


John Buck is in Phoenix with the Mets, as his wife in New York continues to await giving birth to the couple's third child, a boy.

Buck in the not-too-distant future should be departing for paternity leave. If the birth waits until after the weekend, he will have a friend's private plane at his disposal to whisk him back to New York.

Travis d'Arnaud, returning from a broken left foot suffered April 17, has been shifted from Binghamton to Las Vegas. That coincides with the Mets' trip out west, and puts d'Arnaud in position for a cameo with the big league club once Buck departs. 


Terry Collins said he would use d'Arnaud during Buck's three-day paternity leave, D'Arnaud already is on the 40-man roster.

D’Arnaud played for Triple-A Las Vegas on Friday night for the first time since fracturing the first metatarsal in his left foot on April 17. He went 1-for-3 with a walk. 

“I feel like my timing is back,” d’Arnaud told the Binghamton Press & Sun-Bulletin before departing Double-A Binghamton on Thursday. “I feel good at the plate. I feel good behind the plate. I just feel good in general.”
