Say this about Travis d’Arnaud: He (mostly) stayed healthy in 2014, after missing time in each of the two previous years to left leg injuries. His first full season was generally a success, though it gets a lot more interesting if you look at his first- and second-half splits:
Second half: .265/.313/.474 (124 wRC+)
Mack - Let's face it... the future of Mets catching will make a lot more sense if Arnaud works out as the kind of player he was projected to be as a prospect.
I believe he has the bat to make it big time, but I'm not sure about the body. He also has more bad luck behind the plate than any catcher I have seen in years.
Lastly, his almost obsession with framing continues to cause too many passed balls. He needs to keep his eye on the ball being thrown, especially when most of them from this staff are over 90 miles per hour.
I love the potential of Plawecki, but, in my book, this is d'Arnaud's job in 2015... and, if he plays his cards right, well past that date.
