The Mets' starting catcher is back, but the team is now carrying three catchers.

The Mets optioned infielder Danny Muno to Triple-A Las Vegas and activated catcher Travis d'Arnaud from the disabled list. Muno has had a couple of stints with the Mets this year, hitting just .100/.182/.100 in 22 plate appearances. d'Arnaud, however, was off to an excellent start at the plate before his finger was broken when he was hit by a pitch, forcing him to the disabled list. He hit .317/.356/.537 with a 147 wrC+ in 11 games to start the season.

That leaves the Mets with an oddly-configured roster that features eight relief pitchers and a four-man bench—two of whom are catchers. With Dilson Herrera and Bobby Parnell presumably returning in the near future, Kevin Plawecki figures to be the roster move to make room for one of those two players. He has dealt with dizziness lately, though, so whether he can be sent to the minors or has to go to the major league disabled list remains in question.
