Mets top prospect Travis d'Arnaud promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas

USA TODAY Sports

One of the Mets' most promising young hitters is returning to Las Vegas of the Pacific Coast League before an eagerly anticipated debut in Queens.

Travis d'Arnaud, the Mets' catcher of the future of the present, is taking the next step. Again. After his game tonight in Binghamton, where he has been rehabbing a broken foot, d'Arnaud was promoted to Triple-A Las Vegas, as reported by Lynn Worthy. TDA excelled there as a member of the Blue Jays' organization in 2012 and was reassigned there to start this season. Now he returns for what should be a brief stint before assuming the mantle of primary Mets backstop. Reports last week indicated that he could be called up to the big leagues when John Buck, the team's current starting catcher, takes paternity leave, which is expected any moment.

With the emergence of Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler, and now Wilmer Flores, this has been an exciting season for young baseball talent in Queens. I am sure d'Arnaud, who was named MLB.com's sixth best prospect back in January and was the centerpiece of the deal that sent R.A. Dickey to Toronto, is eager to showcase his game. It appears his chance is coming soon.
