Travis d’Arnaud was out of the lineup for the second straight game Wednesday and met with Terry Collins before the game. Collins had told reporters that the catcher’s playing time would likely be split with Rene Rivera because of d’Arnaud’s struggles at the plate.

“The guys who are producing runs are the guys who are going to get in there,” Collins said before Wednesday’s 1-0 loss to the Nationals, “because that is how we are going to win.”

D’Arnaud has made the majority of the starts since he returned from a shoulder injury in late June. He’s made 49 starts behind the plate hitting .272 with four home runs and 13 RBI. He has struggled to find power, with just seven extra-base hits over that span.
