SAN DIEGO - The New York Mets have promoted catcher Travis d'Arnaud from Triple-A and put him into the starting lineup for his major league debut.

D'Arnaud was batting sixth Saturday night against San Diego. The Mets put catcher John Buck on the paternity list.

D'Arnaud was the key player the Mets received from Toronto in the off-season trade for NL Cy Young winner R.A. Dickey.

The 24-year-old d'Arnaud was hitting .304 with two home runs and 12 RBIs in 19 games. He broke his left foot on April 17 and returned on July 24.

D'Arnaud says he feels ready to play every day. He was set to catch Jenrry Mejia on Saturday and ace Matt Harvey on Sunday.

Mets manager Terry Collins said he likes what he's seen from d'Arnaud.

"His confidence back there and the way he handled some of the older pitchers in spring training was impressive," he said.
