The team said Monday that d'Arnaud will be in a splint for three weeks after his right hand was broken when he was hit by a pitch a day earlier. Blevins will be in a splint for six weeks after a line drive fractured his throwing arm.

Both were placed on the 15-day disabled list. The Mets said they will select the contract of prized catching prospect Kevin Plawecki from Triple-A Las Vegas on Tuesday and will recall right-hander pitcher Hansel Robles.
