11:20 am: The Mets have reviewed the medical reports on Travis d’Arnaud’s knee and are not concerned (Passan, Yahoo! Sports).
I'm sure they said the same thing about Piazza. Let's wait and see.
Oh, and Posey too.
>>>"The irony of this deal is if d"Arnaud hits the way we all hope he can they'll be looking to get him out from behind the plate long term."<<<
I've been thinking that same thing too. I can totally see them maybe thinking about putting him at another position some years down the road. He is suppose to be athletic - not your run of the mill big bulky type of catcher. Anyway, it is something to think aabout for down the road if needs be.
The Giants have been talking about moving Posey since he hit the big leagues. This is on MLB Trade Rumors right now.
"One scout says the Mets should at have some concern about the posterior collateral ligament injury that sidelined d’Arnaud for much of last season, writes Mike Puma of the New York Post. “It’s not great for catchers, but nowadays they do a super job rehabbing these injuries and he’s young,” the scout said. “I like the bat along with the defense. I could see him as maybe a catcher and first-base combo.”
