Travis d’Arnaud bats second, catches five innings in first rehab game for Binghamton

(Because of a last-minute change in d’Arnaud’s rehab plan, I lucked into being the only reporter in Trenton to cover his minor-league stint.)

Excerpt from Newsday:

TRENTON – Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud’s return from the 15-day disabled list appears to be near.

D’Arnaud, who suffered a sprained left elbow when he attempted to tag Atlanta’s A.J. Pierzynski on June 20, went 1-for-3 in his first rehab game with Double-A Binghamton Saturday night against the Trenton Thunder.

Cashman prepared to wheel and deal in San Diego

Excerpt from Newsday:

STAMFORD, Conn. — Brian Cashman dressed as an elf, rappelled down a building and stole Santa’s bag of toys back from the Grinch Sunday night at the Heights and Lights Christmas event.

He had his cellphone in his pocket the whole time.

With suspension lifted, Reed available for tonight’s game

Excerpt from Pipe Dream: 

Jordan Reed will be back in uniform for tonight’s bout with Hartford.

Though Tommy Dempsey would not disclose specific details behind the sophomore guard’s one-game suspension, the second-year head coach of the Binghamton men’s basketball team declared he made a coach’s decision to leave Reed in Vestal for the Bearcats’ trip to Albany on Monday. No violation of University policy occurred.

South Kent’s Dusan Perovic verbally commits to men’s basketball

Excerpt from Pipe Dream:

Dusan Perovic verbally committed to the Binghamton men’s basketball team today.

A 6-foot-9 combo big man, Perovic teamed up with fellow Binghamton commit Romello Walker at South Kent Prep this season. Perovic joins Walker, Wilfredo Rodriguez, John Schurman, Justin McFadden and Bobby Ahearn in Binghamton’s 2014 class.

Perovic, who can sign his National Letter of Intent on April 16, said he received just one other offer — from Sacred Heart — but his relationship with Walker drew him to Binghamton.
