First, he was picked on the 44th round by the Los Angeles Dodgers in 2005 but postponed his entry to the pros and enrolled at Pepperdine University. In 2008, D’Arnaud was chosen on the first round by the Pittsburgh Pirates. He went on to play for the Pirates, Philadelphia Phillies, Atlanta Braves, Boston Red Sox, San Diego Padres and San Francisco Giants. The 6-1 outfielder has also played with the minor league affiliates of the Texas Rangers and Kansas City Royals.

D’Arnaud’s mother Marita is a Fil-Am classically-trained music teacher and opera singer. His brother Travis is a catcher with the Braves but isn’t in the Philippine lineup.
