Mets designate struggling catcher d'Arnaud

The New York Mets designated Travis d'Arnaud for assignment Sunday, one day after the slumping catcher was booed repeatedly by fans at Citi Field.

D'Arnaud missed most of last season because of an elbow injury that required Tommy John surgery.

The Mets announced the roster move before Sunday's game against the Milwaukee Brewers .

A rough night got worse three innings later, when d'Arnaud was thrown out trying to stretch a single into a double, drawing more boos.

D'Arnaud, 30, signed a one-year, $3.5 million deal this past offseason to stay with the Mets and serve as a backup catcher to Wilson Ramos .

He has played his entire seven-year career with the Mets, batting .242 with 47 home runs in 407 games.
