It appears Travis d'Arnaud has already landed on his feet.
The former Mets catcher was in the Dodgers' clubhouse Sunday in San Diego. The Mets announced last Sunday they designated him for assignment and he was formally released later in the week.
d'Aarnaud underwent Tommy John surgery in April 2018 and the Mets tendered him a contract worth more than $3 million for this season. But his time as Wilson Ramos' backup ended -- along with his six-year tenure in New York -- when he began the season in a 2-for-25 slump and the Mets' desire to move Tomas Nido into the backup role.
"It's been an amazing journey to be a Met," he wrote in an Instagram post dedicated to Mets fans. "All the highs and lows have made me into the person I am today. Thank you for welcoming a California kid into your city and treating me like family. I hope nothing but the best for the organization, staff, fans, and most importantly my teammates. Thank you for everything. I will forever be grateful."
d'Arnaud grew up in Lakewood, California, which is just outside Los Angeles. The Dodgers have catchers Austin Barnes and Russell Martin on the roster.
If d'Arnaud is able to turn the tide of his career, he'd be another former Met -- think the likes of Justin Turner -- to experience a rebirth in Dodger blue.
