Mets Injury Update: Mets place Travis d'Arnaud on seven-day concussion disabled list

Mike Stobe

The team is not taking chances with its young catcher after he took a blow to the head on Tuesday.

After Travis d'Arnaud was hit in the back of the head by an Alfonso Soriano swing during Tuesday night's 12-7 Mets win, he appeared a bit woozy but still stayed in the game. On Wednesday, the 25-year-old catcher was not feeling well, and he was held out of that night's game.

d'Arnaud missing a game led some to speculate that the Mets could place him on the seven-day disabled list that is available for victims of head injuries. The team did just that on Thursday afternoon, while at the same time promoting Juan Centeno from Triple-A Las Vegas to take d'Arnaud's place on the 25-man roster.

d'Arnaud has not been officially diagnosed with a concussion yet, but the Mets were rightfully concerned that he was still feeling effects a day after being hit on the head. The former top prospect's offense hasn't shown up in big league form yet, as he's hit just .196/.274/.314 this season. d'Arnaud did appear to be heating up a bit as of late with two home runs in the month of May.

Centeno, meanwhile, is hitting .273/.348/.338 with the 51s this season with nine walks and 13 strikeouts.
