Updates with d'Arnaud to have Tommy John surgery, Lobaton added to roster.

Plawecki suffered the injury Wednesday after getting hit by a Tayron Guerrero pitch in the eighth inning of a game against the Marlins. While a postgame X-ray was negative, an MRI showed a hairline fracture.

The tear in his right elbow was detected during an MRI exam on Wednesday. This will be d'Arnaud'€™s seventh injury in his six-year career as he has been riddled with injuries. While a post-game X-ray was negative, an MRI in NY on Thursday showed a hairline fracture and is expected to be out three to four weeks. However, new manager Mickey Callaway and the division-leading Mets face their first challenge of the young season; they will have to continue the season without Travis d'€™Arnaud. He has been placed on the 10-day disabled list and is expected to miss three to four weeks.

D'Arnaud went on the disabled list Wednesday for the fifth consecutive year and was transferred to the 60-day DL on Friday.

Two days after catcher Travis d'Arnaud landed on the disabled list with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament in his right elbow, Kevin Plawecki is joining him. For now, Lobaton and Tomas Nido are expected to fill in behind the plate, but it wouldn't be surprising if the Mets try to make a trade.

The Mets also recalled outfielder Brandon Nimmo from Las Vegas on Friday and optioned reliever Jacob Rhame to Triple A.
