Brandon Nimmo notched his first two major league hits in Monday's loss to the Nationals.
They weren't exactly screamers, as Nimmo hit a soft liner that fell in right field in his first at-bat and then hit a cue shot to third base in his second at-bat that went for an infield single. But, hey, the youngster will take it. Nimmo is in line to receive regular playing time in left field against righties while Michael Conforto irons out his issues in the minors. Jun 27 - 11:11 PM

Brandon Nimmo won't be in the starting lineup Saturday against the Braves.

He didn't arrive in Atlanta until late in the afternoon so manager Terry Collins decided to give him a day to get settled. Alejandro De Aza will grab the start in left field and bat seventh against Braves right-hander Julio Teheran. Nimmo should be in the lineup to make his major league debut Sunday in the series finale.

Mets recalled OF Brandon Nimmo from Triple-A Las Vegas.

With Michael Conforto headed down the minors, Nimmo should see plenty of playing time in the Mets' outfield in the coming days. He could slot in as the primary left fielder against right-handed pitching, but he's also capable of playing center field. The 2011 first-round pick was batting .328/.409/.508 with five home runs, 37 RBI, and five stolen bases over 63 games this season in Triple-A. He's worth a shot in deeper fantasy leagues.

The Mets are expected to call up prospect outfielder Brandon Nimmo on Saturday.

He's set to replace Michael Conforto, who will reportedly be demoted. The Mets' first-round pick from 2011, Nimmo has put himself back on the prospect map this season by batting .328/.409/.508 with five home runs, 37 RBI, and five stolen bases over 63 games this season in Triple-A. Of course, those numbers are in the hitter-friendly Pacific Coast League, so they have to be taken with a grain of salt, but he figures to see plenty of playing time in the Mets' outfielder now that Conforto is headed to the minors. He's more of a wait-and-see option in mixed fantasy leagues, but he should be owned in NL-only formats.

Mets OF prospect Brandon Nimmo reached base four times in Wednesday's win for Triple-A Las Vegas.

He walked, doubled, singled twice and drove in four runs as the 51s outlasted Reno for a 12-10 win. The 2011 first-round pick has enjoyed a breakout year, hitting .329 with five homers, 37 RBI and five steals. He leads the Pacific Coast League with seven triples and is also sixth in one base percentage (.413). It's going to be hard for the Mets to keep Nimmo in the minor leagues if he continues to swing a hot bat.

Mets OF prospect Brandon Nimmo belted two homers in Thursday's win for Triple-A Las Vegas.

He matched a season-high with four RBI. Nimmo has been on absolute tear. Over his last five games, he's hit .524 with eight RBI and five extra-base hits. He's raised his average from .301 to .325 during that span. Nimmo is tied for 10th in the Pacific Coast League with 15 doubles and also ranks 11th with a .403 on base percentage. This might be the year the 2011 first-round pick finally makes his big league debut.

Mets OF prospect Brandon Nimmo plated three runs on three hits Tuesday in a win for Triple-A Las Vegas.

He's been absolutely crushing it over the last month, hitting .353 with 19 RBI over his last 29 games. Nimmo's .317 average this season is his highest since arriving on the scene as a first-round pick in 2011. Two of Nimmo's three home runs this year have come in his last eight games. The 23-year-old hasn't had much luck stealing bases (only four steals on 10 attempts this year) but at least he's getting on base a lot (.395 OBP). Look for him to make his major league debut sometime in 2016.

Mets prospect outfielder Brandon Nimmo (foot) has been playing games regularly on the minor league side and will open the season with Triple-A Las Vegas.

Nimmo suffered a partially torn tendon in his left foot in late January, but he's feeling better now. The 23-year-old batted .269/.362/.372 in the minors last season and could make his major league debut later this year.

Mets optioned OF Brandon Nimmo to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Nimmo has been sidelined this spring after suffering a partially torn tendon in his left foot in late January. The soon-to-be 23-year-old wouldn't have made the Opening Day roster even if he was healthy, but he could have a chance to make his major league debut later this year.
Mar 15 - 9:35 AM

Brandon Nimmo (foot) is behind schedule in his rehabilitation.

Nimmo, who was diagnosed with a partially torn tendon in his left foot in late January, still has a few weeks of rehab ahead of him before he can get on the field. It wasn't a high probability, but the injury all but squashes any chances the 22-year-old had of breaking camp with the big club. Nimmo batted .269/.362/.372 in the minors last season and could be up with the Mets at some point this year despite his disappointing start to the season.

Brandon Nimmo has been diagnosed with a partially torn tendon in his left foot.

He's been provided a walking boot and will be re-evaluated in 10 days. Added to the 40-man roster this offseason, Nimmo batted .269/.362/.372 with five homers across three levels last season. He has a shot to make his major league debut by the end of 2016.
Jan 29 - 4:53 PM

Mets purchased the contract of OF Brandon Nimmo from Triple-A Las Vegas.

Nimmo was a first-round pick in 2011. He spent time at High-A, Double-A and Triple-A in 2015. The Mets promoted the 22-year-old outfield prospect to Triple-A in late July. Overall, he slashed .269/.362/.372 with five homers, four triples and 26 RBI over 376 minor league at-bats. He's now protected from the Rule 5 draft.

The Mets have promoted prospect outfielder Brandon Nimmo to Triple-A Las Vegas.

Nimmo, a first-round pick in 2011, earned the promotion after batting .279/.354/.368 with two home runs and 16 RBI over 302 plate appearances with Double-A Binghamton this season. The 22-year-old has been considered one of the team's top position prospects for a while and now he's just a step away from the majors. It's worth noting that his name has been floated in some trade rumors this week, so that opportunity might not be with the Mets.

Mets OF prospect Brandon Nimmo singled four times Saturday for Double-A Binghamton.

Nimmo returned to the lineup Thursday after missing a month with a sprained ACL. He's looked sharp since coming back, collecting seven hits in his first 14 at-bats. Saturday was Nimmo's first four-hit game since April 28, 2014. New York drafted Nimmo with the 35th pick in the 2011 draft.

Mets prospect OF Brandon Nimmo went 2-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and an RBI on Thursday in his return to Double-A Binghamton.

After spending a month on the shelf with a knee injury, Nimmo came off the disabled list earlier this week and made a brief rehab stint at High-A St. Lucie, where he went 2-for-16 over four games, before returning to Double-A. The 22-year-old outfielder is batting .301/.369/.434 with 14 extra-base hits, 12 RBI and a 31/16 strikeout-to-walk ratio for Binghamton this season but has played in just 35 games.
