CHICAGO -- Catching prospect Travis d'Arnaud will need to remain in a walking boot for two more weeks without any weight-bearing activity. The determination was made after team doctor Struan Coleman examined d'Arnaud Friday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan.
The Mets hoped d'Arnaud would be cleared to start putting pressure on the left foot, which was fractured four weeks ago on a foul ball while catching in a game with Triple-A Las Vegas.
D'Arnaud experienced some tenderness to the touch in the area of the broken first metatarsal.
On a positive note, Zack Wheeler will reenter the Las Vegas rotation Wednesday at Iowa. Wheeler was placed on the seven-day DL, but that is backdated to his last start and merely allows the 51s to carry another player in the interim. Wheeler received a cortisone shot for mild inflammation of the AC joint in his right shoulder on Wednesday in Manhattan.
