NEW YORK -- On Friday, for the first time since suffering a concussion last week, catcher Travis d'Arnaud stepped onto the Citi Field grass and ran through a series of drills. As manager Terry Collins and a trainer looked on, d'Arnaud performed various conditioning activities and took batting practice.

Team doctors still must clear d'Arnaud to come off the seven-day disabled list, and Major League Baseball must review his medical records, but he has passed every test the Mets have given him, putting him in line for a Minor League rehab assignment by early next week.

d'Arnaud has not played since May 13, when Alfonso Soriano struck him on the top of the helmet with a backswing.

"It took about a week before I started feeling back to my normal self," d'Arnaud said.
