ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – The Tampa Bay Rays have acquired catcher Travis d’Arnaud from the Los Angeles Dodgers for $100,000.

D’Arnaud was traded Friday, a week after the Dodgers signed him following his release by the New York Mets. The 30-year-old d’Arnaud was 0 for 1 in one game for the Dodgers after going 2 for 23 in 10 games for the Mets.

The deal was announced several hours after the AL East-leading Rays put starting catcher Mike Zunino on the 10-day injured list with a strained left quadriceps.

Zunino could miss four to five weeks. He joined backup catcher Michael Perez on the IL – Perez will be sidelined another two to three weeks because of a strained right oblique.

Tampa Bay started rookie Nick Ciuffo at catcher in the series opener against the New York Yankees.

The Rays this week purchased from Triple-A Durham the contract of catcher Anthony Bemboom, who at 29 would become the oldest position player to make his major league debut with Tampa Bay if he appears in a game.

D’Arnaud was released by the Mets on May 3 and signed two days later by the Dodgers.
