Brandon Nimmo hit a solo homer off of Max Scherzer in a losing cause to the Nationals on Sunday.
His homer came in the first inning off of Max Scherzer. Very quietly, Nimmo has put up a commendable .388 on-base percentage, and his .416 slugging percentage is a respectable number, as well. He's earned a look for a starting job next year, and he could -- if not should -- be hitting near the top of the lineup with his ability to get on. Sep 24 - 4:32 PM

Brandon Nimmo hit a solo homer in the Mets' loss to the Marlins on Wednesday.

Nimmo has been one of the few bright spots in a dreadful September for the Mets and he has lifted his season OPS up to .803. The 24-year-old outfielder is positioning himself for a starting job in 2018.
Sep 20 - 4:15 PM

Brandon Nimmo homered twice, finishing 3-for-4 with three RBI and three runs scored to help the Mets down the Reds 7-2 on Thursday.

Nimmo had one homer in 47 career games before going opposite field for a solo homer in the fifth inning. He ripped a more traditional two-run shot to right-center in the sixth, and the 24-year-old also doubled and walked in the contest. Despite the lack of power, Nimmo has shown tremendous on-base skills throughout his professional career, registering a .416 OBP in 48 games with the Mets this year. He's batting .283 and slugging .424 while playing all three outfield positions in those 48 games.
Sep 7 - 10:34 PM

Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored against the Phillies on Monday.

Nimmo had a pair of RBI singles on the day and just continues to get on base. He’s batting .272/.407/.348 through 45 games. There’s not much power here, but he has an excellent approach and has at least carved out a role on the major league roster for 2018.
Sep 4 - 5:07 PM

Brandon Nimmo clubbed his first home run of the season as the Mets dropped the nightcap of Sunday's double header to the Nationals.

Nimmo tagged Nationals' starter Tanner Roark for a two-run shot that briefly gave the Mets a 3-2 lead in the sixth inning. He also singled in the ballgame, finishing the night 2-for-4. With Michael Conforto and Yoenis Cespedes on the shelf, he should see regular playing time for the remainder of the season and could be worth a look in deeper mixed leagues.
Aug 27 - 11:32 PM

Brandon Nimmo went 1-for-3 with two walks, two runs scored, and a stolen base Friday against the Nationals.

Nimmo batted leadoff and started in right field with Michael Conforto (shoulder) out of the mix. The 24-year-old doesn’t stand out in power or speed, but he owns a .406 on-base percentage through 35 games. The playing time should be there, so he’s worth adding in NL-only fantasy formats.
Aug 25 - 10:54 PM

Mets activated OF Brandon Nimmo from the 10-day disabled list.

Nimmo missed just three weeks of action with a partially collapsed lung. He'll back up for now but could potentially fall into more playing time depending on how many trades the Mets make.
Jul 28 - 6:02 PM

Brandon Nimmo (lung) began a rehab assignment with Triple-A Las Vegas on Monday.

Nimmo was placed on the disabled list a little over two weeks ago with a partially collapsed lung, which obviously didn't turn out to be as scary as it sounds. He could be back with the Mets fairly soon.
Jul 24 - 9:02 PM

Mets placed OF Brandon Nimmo on the 10-day disabled list with a partially collapsed lung.

No word yet on how he sustained the injury or how long he may be sidelined for, but our thoughts and prayers go out to him and his family. Michael Conforto was activated from the disabled list in a corresponding move.
Jul 8 - 1:16 PM

Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-4 with three singles in Tuesday’s loss to the Nationals.

Nimmo was a bright spot on another ugly day for the Mets. The 24-year-old has mostly been limited to bench duties, but he has played the past three days with Curtis Granderson and now Yoenis Cespedes banged up. With the Mets looking like sellers, Nimmo could play a prominent role down the stretch.
Jul 4 - 2:41 PM

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

Nimmo could see some starts in New York given all the players currently on the disabled list for the Mets, but the former first-round pick was sporting an underwhelming .223/.361/.378 batting line with three home runs and 16 RBI in 38 games this season at the Triple-A level. He can be ignored in standard fantasy leagues.
Jun 16 - 3:17 PM

Brandon Nimmo stopped his rehab over the weekend due to a knee issue.

Nimmo's right hamstring no longer appears to be a problem, but now he has a new injury to deal with. It's unclear how long it might keep him sidelined.
May 8 - 5:15 PM

Brandon Nimmo (hamstring) had a double, two RBI, and three runs scored Wednesday in his first rehab game with High-A St. Lucie.

Nimmo strained his right hamstring back in early March while playing for Team Italy in the World Baseball Classic and then reaggravated the injury when he returned to Mets camp. But it looks like he's recovered now. The former first-round pick is likely to be stationed at Triple-A Las Vegas when the Mets activate him off the major league disabled list.
Apr 27 - 9:43 AM

Mets placed OF Brandon Nimmo on the 10-day disabled list with a strained right hamstring.

He suffered the injury during the World Baseball Classic. Nimmo still isn't ready to play in games and it's unclear when he will be.
Apr 2 - 2:05 PM

Mets manager Terry Collins said Thursday that Brandon Nimmo (hamstring) is not close to returning to game action.

Nimmo had a good shot at a bench spot going into spring training, but it's looking like he might be headed for the disabled list. It could open up a spot for Michael Conforto.
