Mets announce catcher Travis d'Arnaud will undergo Tommy John Surgery

The 27-year-old Realmuto - making just $2.9 million and under contractual control through 2020 - also has been on the disabled list to open the season with a back contusion, and there are strong doubts that the Mets even have the match of prospect depth to swing such a deal.

Catcher Kevin Plawecki will be sidelined for three to four weeks with a broken left hand and went on the disabled list Friday as NY announced Travis d'Arnaud will have season-ending Tommy John surgery.

Kevin Plawecki (hand) will be the Mets' regular catcher when he returns, but for now the team will go with Tomas Nido and Jose Lobaton. But at this moment, we don't have any plans to add anyone other than at the Triple-A level.

"I think we're comfortable for the very short term". He hit a career-high 16 homers and slugged a career-best.443 in 112 games.

D'Arnaud went on the disabled list Wednesday for the fifth consecutive year and was transferred to the 60-day DL on Friday.

New York Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud will undergo Tommy John surgery on his injured right elbow. "I couldn't believe", he said.

A veteran of five-plus seasons, d'Arnaud missed significant time to injury in both 2015 and 2016. A postgame X-ray was negative, but an MRI in NY on Thursday showed a hairline fracture.

"Again, I think immediately the answer is no", Alderson said when asked if he feels a need to improve immediately behind the plate.

The Mets said before Friday's game against Milwaukee that Plawecki was going to the DL, retroactive to Thursday. The Mets also recalled outfielder Brandon Nimmo from Las Vegas and optioned right-hander Jacob Rhame to the 51s.
