Mets catcher Kevin Plawecki has his hand looked

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. He hit a career-high 16 homers and slugged a career-best.443 in 112 games.

Tomas Nido was recalled from Double-A Binghamton on Wednesday, and another catcher is likely to be brought up Friday.

On the disabled list for the fifth straight season, the 29-year-old d'Arnaud was 3 for 15 (.200) with one homer and three RBI in four games this year. D'Arnaud was diagnosed with a torn ulnar collateral ligament earlier this week and is set to undergo Tommy John surgery next week, which will sidelined him for the remainder of the season.

"I didn't say a word for about a minute. I just couldn't believe it, but what can you do?" Tommy John recovery times aren't quite as lengthy for position players as for pitchers, so d'Arnaud could be back at the start of next season.

Per's Anthony DiComo, d'Arnaud is going to miss the rest of the 2018 season as a result of the procedure and rehab. The Mets, however, said a follow-up MRI at the Hospital for Special Surgery in NY on Thursday revealed the fracture.

His return date will be determined by the return of grip strength and pain tolerance.

"Again, I think immediately the answer is no", Alderson said when asked if he feels a need to improve immediately behind the plate. "It's only a couple of weeks out of a very long season". The team shifted him to the 60-day DL earlier Friday while also adding his backup, Kevin Plawecki, to the 10-day DL with a hairline fracture in his hand. The Mets also recalled outfielder Brandon Nimmo from Las Vegas and optioned right-hander Jacob Rhame to the 51s. He was with the Mets during spring training and had been waiting for an opportunity. Nido hit.232 with eight homers and 60 RBI a year ago at Double-A. During the Mets' 2015 World Series season, he broke his right hand after being hit by a pitch, missing 46 games.
