Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Opens scoring with homer
D'Arnaud went 2-for-4 with a solo home run in Friday's 6-3 loss to the Dodgers.

Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Three doubles in comeback win
D'Arnaud went 3-for-5 with three doubles and two RBI in Tuesday's 8-6 win over the Pirates.
His third two-bagger of the night was the biggest, as d'Arnaud ripped a curveball from Pittsburgh closer David Bednar into left field to kick-start a three-run rally for Atlanta that erased a 6-5 deficit. The veteran catcher had been scuffling at the plate lately, and even after Tuesday's performance he's batting just .220 (11-for-50) since the beginning of July, but eight of those 11 hits -- five doubles and three homers -- have gone for extra bases and he's racked up 10 RBI....

D'Arnaud went 2-for-4 with a solo home run and a double in Sunday's 4-2 win over Milwaukee.

The catcher logged multiple extra base-hits for the second time this season. He's slashing a solid .264/.333/.493 with nine homers, 24 RBI, 20 runs scored and six doubles through 159 plate appearances. While he's limited to a backup role behind Sean Murphy, d'Arnaud's numbers are enough to help in NL-only and two-catcher fantasy formats.... See More ... See Less

Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Belts eighth homer
D'Arnaud went 1-for-4 with a solo home run in Sunday's loss to the Rays.
The veteran catcher made franchise history when he took Zach Eflin deep in the fourth inning, as it marked the 26th straight game in which Atlanta batters had hit at least one homer -- a new record. D'Arnaud heads into the All-Star break with eight homers on the season, including four in his last seven starts, but his playing time remains erratic behind Sean Murphy at catcher and Marcell Ozuna at DH....

The long ball was his seventh of the campaign and his fifth in his last 10 games. Through 34 appearances, d'Arnaud is slashing .279/.358/.492 while striking out at an 18.2 percent clip....

Braves' Travis d'Arnaud: Returns to bench

D'Arnaud has an .839 OPS this year but will now revert back to a secondary role since Murphy is healthy.... See More ... See Less

It was the second four-hit game of the campaign for the backstop, with the other coming March 30 against Washington. D'Arnaud has started at catcher in five straight games while Sean Murphy (hamstring) has been on the shelf, and he's batted .333 (7-for-21) with two homers and four RBI over that span....

The veteran backstop hit one of five long balls for Atlanta in the contest, contributing to the team's comeback with a two-run shot in the eighth inning. The multi-hit effort was d'Arnaud's fifth in 20 games this season.
