Player Outlook
He plays more than most backup catchers because he's more productive offensively than most of the other major leaguers who occupy that role, but Travis d'Arnaud is firmly positioned as the No. 2 option in Atlanta behind Sean Murphy. The same Sean Murphy who was signed last winter to a six-year, $73 million contract extension with a $15 million club option for 2029. In theory, d'Arnaud would make sense as an option for the designated hitter role, or at least a share of it, but he drew only six starts out of the DH spot in 2023 and simply doesn't have the juice to knock Marcell Ozuna from his full-time DH perch. The same Marcell Ozuna who's coming off a career-high 40 home runs. It's worth keeping d'Arnaud on a waiver-wire watch list, but he'll need injuries on the depth chart above him to take on one-catcher, mixed-league fantasy appeal in 2024.

  • Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Two homers Sunday

    D'Arnaud went 2-for-3 with two homers, a walk, a stolen base, four RBI and three runs scored in Sunday's win over the Padres. D'Arnaud didn't get going until later in the game. He distanced Atlanta with a three-run blast in the sixth to put them up 5-1 and then followed up with a solo home run in the eighth. The 35-year-old backstop also reached via a walk and swiped his first base of the year. The home runs were d'Arnaud's first since June 22 and are a continuation of a strong month at the plate so far. Over 26 plate appearances, d'Arnaud is slashing .333/.385/.625 with seven RBI and four runs scored in July. He continues to be in a timeshare behind the plate with Sean Murphy and won't have a clear path to an everyday role unless Murphy were to pick up another injury.

  • Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Launches seventh homer

    D'Arnaud went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Saturday's 8-3 loss to the Yankees. While his playing time has been limited in June, d'Arnaud is starting to make the most of it. He has a homer in two of his last three games, giving him seven long balls on the year. The catcher is at a .242/.310/.464 slash line with 24 RBI, 21 runs scored, 13 doubles and no stolen bases over 171 plate appearances. While Sean Murphy has struggled at the plate this season, he's hitting .244 in June, which has been enough to keep d'Arnaud in the backup catcher role.

  • Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Goes deep in loss

    d'Arnaud went 2-for-4 with a solo home run Sunday against the Rays. d'Arnaud's second-inning homer was his sixth of the season but his first since April 22. It was also just the third multi-hit performance for d'Arnaud since late April, a span of 31 games. d'Arnaud has seen his playing time reduced dramatically since the return of Sean Murphy, seeing action in just eight games and collecting 24 at-bats since Murphy's return in late May from an oblique injury.

  • Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Limited use since Murphy's return

    D'Arnaud is out of the lineup for Wednesday's game against the Orioles. D'Arnaud will probably get the start at catcher in Thursday's series finale in Baltimore -- which is a day game after a night game -- but the veteran backstop has seen his playing time take a steady dip since Sean Murphy returned from the injured list May 27. Murphy will get his 11th start in 15 games since his return, with d'Arnaud getting the nod at catcher for the four other contests.

  • Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Not in Monday's lineup

    D'Arnaud is absent from the lineup for Monday's game against the Nationals. Sean Murphy is making his long-awaited return from the injured list Monday, so d'Arnaud will begin this one on the bench. It's likely that Murphy won't shoulder too big of a workload initially, so expect d'Arnaud to continue seeing plenty of reps. The 35-year-old should retain value in two-catcher leagues even with his playing time expected to dip.

  • Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Sitting down Saturday

    D'Arnaud isn't in Atlanta's lineup for Saturday's game against Pittsburgh. After going 2-for-4 with two RBI during Friday's loss, d'Arnaud will take a seat Saturday while Chadwick Tromp starts behind the plate, batting eighth.

  • Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Not in Thursday's lineup

    D'Arnaud is absent from the lineup for Thursday's game against the Cubs. He started the first two contest of the series, but with Thursday's finale being a day game, d'Arnaud will get a breather. Atlanta will go with Chadwick Tromp as its catcher for starting pitcher AJ Smith-Shawver.

  • Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Three hits in nightcap

    D'Arnaud went 3-for-4 with an RBI in the second game of Monday's doubleheader split with the Padres. The veteran catcher sat out Sunday's game and Monday's matinee after taking a foul tip off his facemask Friday, but d'Arnaud cleared the concussion protocol and looked none the worse for wear in his return to the lineup. He's slashing .274/.350/.509 through 120 plate appearances this season with five homers and 17 RBI, but with Sean Murphy (oblique) expected to begin a rehab assignment this week, d'Arnaud's stint as Atlanta's No. 1 backstop could come to a close by the end of the month.

    D'Arnaud was removed from Friday's game against San Diego due to dizziness. D'Arnaud took a foul ball off his facemask in the fifth inning and did not take the field for the sixth.

  • Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Goes yard again

    D'Arnaud went 2-for-4 with a two-run homer in Monday's win over Miami. D'Arnaud knocked a 365-foot home run off Ryan Weathers in the fourth inning to give him his fifth homer in four games. The recent hot stretch is a welcome sight for the veteran catcher as he was previously slashing .200/.250/.311 over 48 plate appearances. D'Arnaud should continue garnering the majority of playing time in Atlanta until Sean Murphy (oblique) returns.
