NEW YORK -- A scout, quoted anonymously by Baseball Prospectus, was highly critical of Travis d’Arnaud.

The scout said: “I haven’t liked him so far. He hasn’t looked good defensively, including allowing a bunch of passed balls. I’ve seen him miss some fastballs, almost like he has a blind spot. It’s slider bat speed and he just doesn’t look very strong. He hasn’t had a whole lot of energy either. It’s been pretty rough overall.”

D'Arnaud enters this weekend's series against the Miami Marlins hitting .190 with one homer and four RBIs in 58 at-bats, although he does have a pair of two-hit games in his past four starts.
