Travis d'Arnaud catches for first time during rehab assignment

MILWAUKEE -- Travis d'Arnaud caught seven innings for Class A St. Lucie on Saturday in his first game action behind the plate since landing on the disabled list in late April with a strained rotator cuff in his right shoulder.

D'Arnaud had eased into game action by serving as the designated hitter during the opening four games of his rehab assignment with the Florida State League club.

Because rehab assignments are a maximum of 20 days, d'Arnaud's minor league action will extend through no later than June 24.

D'Arnaud went 2-for-4 with two RBIs, a walk, and a run scored on Saturday at Dunedin. There also were two stolen bases while he was catching, with one scout describing the throws as "below average." He is hitting .273 (6-for-22) with four RBIs, five walks, and a stolen base in five minor league games.
