"I was just shocked when I heard the news", d'Arnaud said Thursday, via the Mets' official website.

Only the Mets could descend so quickly from the euphoria over their torrid burst out of the starting blocks into instant scramble mode with both of their catchers suddenly landing on the disabled list.

In the meantime, with Kevin Plawecki also on the disabled list with a broken hand, Jose Lobaton and Tomas Nido will share catching duties in NY.

Tomas Nido is now the only backstop on the Mets' 25-man roster with d'Arnaud and Plawecki sidelined. "We'll see how things go", NY general manager Sandy Alderson said. "But that certainly could change".

"I think we're comfortable for the very short term".

Winnipeg Jets vs. Minnesota Wild - 4/13/18 NHL Pick, Odds, and Prediction
The team has averaged 18,042 fans a game in the regular season while playing to 103.9 per cent capacity at the T-Mobile Arena. Jets forward Mathieu Perreault left in the second period with an upper-body injury and head coach Paul Maurice had no update.

Miguel Montero was designated for assignment by the Nationals on Wednesday, and Geovany Soto remains a free agent. Still, the Mets returned home with an eight-game winning streak and a 10-1 start, the best in franchise history. He has a partial tear of the ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow and will have Tommy John surgery next week. "I couldn't believe", he said.

Travis d'Arnaud will miss the rest of the 2018 season.

. A postgame X-ray was negative, but an MRI in NY on Thursday showed a hairline fracture.

"I'd like to think the opportunity isn't going away", Plawecki said. Kevin Plawecki, who has been their primary starter this season, is also on the 10-day DL with a hairline fracture in his left hand.

The Mets also recalled outfielder Brandon Nimmo from Las Vegas on Friday and optioned reliever Jacob Rhame to Triple A. During the Mets' 2015 World Series season, he broke his right hand after being hit by a pitch, missing 46 games.
