WASHINGTON -- Mets top prospect Travis d'Arnaud has been cleared to begin weight-bearing rehabilitation exercises, but his fractured left foot will remain in a boot for the next week.

d'Arnaud received his updated prognosis Monday at the Hospital for Special Surgery in Manhattan. Injuring his foot in mid-April when a foul ball struck him in the toe, the catcher was hitting .250 with one homer and eight RBIs in 36 at-bats for Triple-A Las Vegas.

He was originally expected to spend only weeks in the Minors before making his big league debut, but the injury set d'Arnaud back a significant amount.

The Mets also announced that reliever Scott Atchison will not need surgery for the bone spur in his right elbow, after receiving a second opinion from Dr. James Andrews in Florida. Atchison has had ligament damage in his elbow since last season, which the Mets knew when they signed him to a Minor League deal. But the spur caused numbness in his elbow last month, forcing him to cease activity.

There is no timetable for Atchison's return.
