d'Arnaud, who had been playing in rehab games with the Mets' High-A club in Port St. Lucie, took himself out of a game when he felt discomfort in his wrist following a swing. He saw a hand specialist in Florida, who confirmed that the catcher had a bone bruise. The 26-year-old was expected to return to the Mets during their series against the San Diego Padres on June 1, but instead will stay in Florida to continue rehabbing. Although he can play "to tolerance," this injury will delay his return to the majors.
On Tuesday, d'Arnaud caught seven innings and went 0-for-3 at the plate. d'Arnaud was one of the Mets' best hitters before his injury, batting .317/.356/.537 with two home runs and ten RBIs in the Mets' first eleven games this season.
