Mets C Travis d'Arnaud has been placed on the 10-day disabled list due to a bone bruise in his right wrist, manager Terry Collins said Friday.
The plan is for d'Arnaud to rest for a week before resuming baseball activity.
d'Arnaud told reporters that he's suffering from a bone bruise (not a fracture) on his right wrist, which he will treat with ice and anti-inflammatory medication as it is still swollen.
"I'm not sure," he said when asked about a timetable for returning. "We'll have a talk about the plan in a little bit."
Collins later said that d'Arnaud is expected to miss more than the regular 10-day timeframe.
d'Arnaud left Tuesday's game against the Braves due to the wrist -- the same wrist that recently kept him out of the starting lineup for four games -- and saw a doctor in Atlanta on Thursday.
Collins said after Tuesday's game that d'Arnaud seemed to feel pain during batting practice. When he felt the injury during the game, he told Collins he was unable to hit.
The catcher spent more than two weeks playing through the injury, but failed to avoid the disabled list.
"I thought we did it right," d'Arnaud said according to a report from Newsday. "[They] gave me a few days, I wasn't feeling anything, felt fine, was playing fine. And it's just unfortunate that on that one swing, I reaggravated it."
