FANTASY BASEBALL INJURY FALLOUT: TRAVIS D'ARNAUD ONCE AGAIN TAKES UP RESIDENCE ON DL

It never ends.  Some players no matter how old or young, fit or out of shape, invariably make it a major habit to always land on the disabled list each and every season for one thing or another.  These players can't ever seem to make it through a season without at least one injury issue and the missed games ultimately take a major chunk of value from their bottom line and frustrate their owners constantly.   Some names who come to mind under this premise are Troy Tulowitzki, Jacoby Ellsbury, David Wright, and more.  Joining this ugly group is New York Mets catcher Travis D'Arnaud who once again took up residence on the disabled list on Tuesday due to a strained right rotator cuff which he suffered in Monday's game.  D'Arnaud will be replaced by backup Kevin Plawecki who has a decent bat but who has yet to really put up any impactful numbers due to inconsistent playing time.  Meanwhile D'Arnaud can't ever stay healthy as this is now his fifth stint on the DL in the last two-plus seasons and to make matters worse, he was not hitting much before he got hurt as evidenced by his putrid .196 with a bagel in the home run column.  Needless to say, D'Arnaud has not come close to being the impactful bat he was expected to be as a hyped prospect coming up the Toronto Blue Jays system.  We have reached the point with D'Arnaud where cutting him loose is the best course of action as he simply has not produced.
