SAN DIEGO — Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud suffered a setback Saturday in his attempted rehab from a strained right rotator cuff.

Attempting to throw for the first time since landing on the disabled list April 26, d’Arnaud felt discomfort and had to “back off,” according to manager Terry Collins, who referred to the situation as “pretty discouraging.”

In d’Arnaud’s absence, Kevin Plawecki will continue to start at catcher most days for the Mets.
