d'Arnaud has only played one game for the Dodgers in the five days he was with the team. Now, for the second time in the same week, he's heading out to a new ball club, looking to get a chance at regular playing time.
The Los Angeles Dodgers today signed catcher Travis d’Arnaud to a one-year contract and placed him on the active roster. To make room on the 25-man roster, the Dodgers optioned infielder Matt Beaty to Triple-A Oklahoma City.— Los Angeles Dodgers (@Dodgers) May 5, 2019
The Rays could use some help at the position, as they currently have two ailing catchers, having just placed Mike Zunino on the IL. He joins Michael Perez on the shelf, leaving the Rays with Nick Ciuffo as their starting catcher.
d'Arnaud will fill a necessary hole in the Tampa Bay roster, as they continue to push for the top position in the American League, following their incredible start to the campaign.
