“I’m thankful that the Braves were thinking the same thing about me and wanted me to stay,” d’Arnaud said following his extension. “It’s an honor. I just try to be a good person everyday and I’m thankful all these guys love me as much as I love them.”
“When I leave my home I truly can’t wait to get to the ballpark everyday, and that’s not very common, so that’s another reason why I wanted to stay,” he added. “I wanted to come back and I was hoping they wanted me to come back.”
d’Arnaud quickly became a fan favorite upon his arrival in Atlanta. Despite a 2020 season with limited fans, Travis earned the National League Silver Slugger Award. In 2022, he was an All-Star. He has taken on the backup role behind Sean Murphy, but has still managed 36 hits this season across 136 at-bats.
