Mets Top Prospect D’Arnaud Breaks Left Foot in Minor League Game

Travis d’Arnaud, the New York Mets’ top prospect, broke his left foot last night in a minor league game.

The 24-year-old d’Arnaud, a catcher for the Mets’ Triple-A affiliate in Las Vegas, will fly to New York to be examined at the Hospital for Special Surgery, the Mets said today in an e-mailed statement. The release said that the injury is a fracture of the first metatarsal, the bone behind the big toe.

The Mets acquired d’Arnaud in the offseason as part of a trade that sent pitcher R.A. Dickey to the Toronto Blue Jays. He is rated the team’s top prospect, and sixth-best in baseball, by MLB.com.

In 12 games this season, D’Arnaud is hitting .250 with one home run and eight runs batted in.
