Two of the most-viewed players were Mets prospect Travis d'Arnaud and Rays outfield prospect Wil Myers, who both took foul balls off their feet in Triple-A. Myers' diagnosis wasn't so bad, while d'Arnaud's was less than ideal: The catching prospect was diagnosed with a non-displaced fracture of the first metatarsal in his left foot, which can knock him out for 4-to-8 weeks. Luckily for the Mets, John Buck is off to a hot start and is currently the leading fantasy scorer at the catcher position. Unfortunately for any d'Arnaud owners, he's now out of play for about two months, instead of just days away from a potential call-up. "What we had in place if something should happen [to Buck] now has to change," manager Terry Collins told The New York Post. "I feel terrible for Travis and I feel terrible for us. But that's not going to keep me from using John Buck the way I see fit, because if something happens, something happens and we have to adjust again." The Mets had internally discussed the possibility of calling up d'Arnaud to catch and potentially use Buck at first base, according to reports. Now, d'Arnaud needs a month-plus to heal and a few more weeks to get back up to speed. At this point, d'Arnaud can be cut by any fantasy owners who were planning on an April arrival for the most-owned minor-league catcher. He's currently burning up one of the four precious reserve spots on my Tout Wars team, but not for much longer. The Rays' Myers got better news, although not the kind fantasy owners were hoping for. When the outfielder left Thursday's Durham Bulls game with soreness from fouling a ball off his right foot, he created buzz on Twitter. That foot is fine, just "a little sore," Myers told the Tampa Bay Times. He hopes to be in the lineup Friday night ... in Triple-A. Myers has yet to homer, but he has started 15-for-50 (.300) and represents a potential shot in the arm for the slow-starting, last-place Rays (5-10). He could still be called up in weeks, if not days.
