Atlanta Braves catcher Travis d'Arnaud will return to the starting lineup Thursday versus the Nationals.
d'Arnaud didn't start Wednesday's series finale with the Phillies but did enter the game to play defense after Sean Murphy was lifted for a pinch-runner. It's been a down season at the plate for the veteran who is hitting .230 with 11 home runs and a .699 OPS across 268 trips to the plate.
Travis d'Arnaud had a solid performance at the plate, going 1-for-4 with a home run and two RBI.
This brings his season total to 11 home runs and 36 RBI in 60 games played. Despite a relatively low batting average of .243, d'Arnaud has shown some power with 11 doubles and a respectable .322 wOBA. While his strikeout rate of 0.207 and walk rate of 0.072 leave something to be desired, d'Arnaud's ability to drive in runs makes him a valuable fantasy catcher option moving forward.
