Travis d'Arnaud News
Atlanta Braves catcher Travis d'Arnaud had two hits over four at-bats during Friday's Game 3 9-1 loss against Philadelphia Phillies. He doubled twice and now has three doubles already in the postseason. d'Arnaud is having a stellar Division Series so far, slashing .417/.417/.917 with one homer, four RBI and one run. The backstop was one of the best catchers during the season, batting .268 with 18 home runs over 107 contests. Those who need a catcher should look d'Arnaud's way against righty Noah Syndergaard in Game 4, especially considering he's been hitting cleanup in a solid Braves lineup.
Atlanta Braves catcher Travis d'Arnaud is on the bench for a Wednesday matchup with the San Francisco Giants and left-handed starting pitcher Carlos Rodon. The 33-year-old is enjoying a quality season at the plate for both Atlanta and fantasy managers, batting .269 with a .322 on-base percentage and 17 home runs in 369 plate appearances. He'll head to the bench with William Contreras starting behind the plate and batting fifth. Contreras has logged 304 plate appearances for Atlanta in 2022, hitting .268 with a .342 on-base percentage, 17 home runs, and a pair of stolen bases.
Atlanta Braves manager Brian Snitker said that catcher Travis d'Arnaud (leg) will be back in the team's starting lineup on Monday against New York Mets right-hander Carlos Carrasco after being sidelined for a week with a leg injury. d'Arnaud will avoid the injured list, which is great news for his fantasy managers. The 33-year-old backstop was an All-Star this year for the first time in his career, and he's hitting .257/.308/.441 with 11 home runs, 40 RBI and 40 runs scored in 72 games in 2022. He's played in just nine games since the All-Star break and has gone 7-for-31 (.226) with no home runs, two RBI and four runs scored in that span. Fantasy managers should be able to return d'Arnaud to their starting lineups for this week.
Atlanta Braves catcher Travis d'Arnaud remains a quality catching option for fantasy managers heading into the 2023 season. The veteran turned in a strong season for the National League East franchise in 2022, hitting .268 with a .319 on-base percentage and 18 home runs in 426 plate appearances. The home runs marked a career-high for the catcher, who unsurprisingly also turned in a strong barrel rate compared to his past metrics. For reference, d'Arnaud's barrel rate finished at 8.5%, the highest it's been in a full season in the last seven years. The veteran split time with fellow catcher William Contreras behind the plate during the 2022 campaign for the National League East club. And while Contreras is now in Milwaukee with the Brewers, the 33-year-old still won't be playing in a full-time role thanks to the arrival of Sean Murphy. Still, the lack of fantasy depth league-wide behind the plate positions d'Arnaud as a quality option for fantasy managers heading into drafts this spring.
