Mets designate catcher Travis d'Arnaud for assignment after 2-for-23 stretch to start season

In Saturday's 8-6 loss to the Brewers , d'Arnaud garnered boos from Mets fans at Citi Field.

Mets general manager Brodie Van Wagenen spoke to the media after the announcement.

The Mets acquired d'Arnaud in 2012 as part of the December trade with the Blue Jays that also netted Noah Syndergaard for R.A. Dickey.

Injuries have plagued d'Arnaud's career, and he's only played in more than 100 games twice in seven MLB seasons.

This past offseason, the Mets signed Wilson Ramos to a two-year, $19 million deal and he has since taken over as the team's starting catcher.

Nido began the year with the Mets for the first week but made just six plate appearances without reaching base.
