d'Arnaud doing 'everything except playing'
By Adam Rubin
PITTSBURGH -- Top catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud may be limited to being a September call-up because of a long recovery from a broken foot suffered in April. But there are signs d'Arnaud is making progress in Port St. Lucie, Fla., despite experiencing discomfort at times while running.
"He's hitting. He's throwing," Terry Collins said. "He's catching in the pens. He's doing everything except playing right now."
Collins said the only thing slowing d'Arnaud is the running issue.
