Mets C d'Arnaud headed for Tommy John surgery

Mets' Kevin Plawecki has broken left hand, report says Kevin Plawecki injury update: Mets C has broken hand, leaving team thin behind plate

In the meantime, with Kevin Plawecki also on the disabled list with a broken hand, Jose Lobaton and Tomas Nido will share catching duties in NY.

New York Mets catcher Travis d'Arnaud will undergo Tommy John surgery on his injured right elbow.

Tomas Nido is now the only backstop on the Mets' 25-man roster with d'Arnaud and Plawecki sidelined.

Nimmo was only optioned on Tuesday, so he would not have been eligible to be called up for another week had the Mets been operating with no injury issues yesterday. "But that certainly could change". Now, they'll be without Plawecki for perhaps a month's time, while d'Arnaud will be lost for the whole season.

"I didn't say a word for about a minute. It was tough, it still is tough, and I just got to take it day-by-day".

To make room on the 40-man roster for Lobaton, d'Arnaud was placed on the 60-day DL.

The officials said Babu had admitted the second needle had been found in his bag but that he had no idea how it got there.

Injuries have been a problem for d'Arnaud dating back to his time in the minor leagues.

Meanwhile, it was announced that Plawecki has a hairline fracture in his left hand, as a result of being hit by a fastball by Tayron Guerrero in the eighth inning Wednesday night. While a postgame X-ray was negative, an MRI in NY on Thursday showed a hairline fracture.

His return date will be determined by the return of grip strength and pain tolerance. "It's only a couple of weeks out of a very long season".

The Mets said before Friday's game against Milwaukee that Plawecki was going to the DL, retroactive to Thursday.

Callaway wouldn't commit to making Lobaton or Nido the regular starter. "The question is whether he's ready to hit at the major league level".
