Brandon Nimmo tripled and homered in a victory over the Brewers on Sunday.
Nimmo's homer was the first of his season, coming off of Taylor Williams in the sixth inning. He's still hitting even after being recalled from Triple-A Las Vegas, and he now owns a ridiculous .571 on-base percentage and .800 slugging percentage, albeit in a small sample size. The fact of the matter is that Nimmo can hit, and the Mets would do well to figure out how to get his bat in the lineup more often. Apr 15 - 4:51 PM

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

Nimmo was batting .333 with a 1.044 OPS in six games when he was optioned earlier this week. He will back up at all three outfield spots.

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

Nimmo was batting .333 with a 1.044 OPS in six games played this season for the Mets, but he got buried on the depth chart with the return of Michael Conforto. The 25-year-old outfielder is better off getting regular starts at Vegas. Corey Oswalt has been called up to join the Mets' bullpen in a corresponding 25-man roster move.
Apr 10 - 2:24 PM

Brandon Nimmo (illness) has returned to the Mets' lineup Tuesday against the Phillies.

Nimmo was scratched from Sunday's lineup with flu-like symptoms, but he's already feeling better. He'll hit leadoff against right-hander Ben Lively.
Apr 3 - 3:17 PM

Brandon Nimmo was scratched from the Mets' lineup Sunday due to flu-like symptoms.

Nimmo was set to bat leadoff against Cardinals right-hander Luke Weaver, but Asdrubal Cabrera will take that spot. Juan Lagares is in center field and hitting seventh.
Apr 1 - 9:46 AM

Brandon Nimmo is not in the Mets' starting lineup for Saturday afternoon's game against the Cardinals.

Despite his success atop the Mets lineup in the opener, Nimmo will take a seat against Cardinals' right-hander Michael Wacha. Juan Lagares is starting in center field and batting seventh for the Mets on Saturday.
Mar 31 - 10:05 AM

Brandon Nimmo reached base in four out of his five plate appearances and scored two runs in Thursday’s Opening Day victory over the Cardinals.

That’s why he’s hitting leadoff. Nimmo went 2-for-3 and also drew a walk and was hit by a pitch. The 25-year-old posted a .379 on-base percentage in 69 games last year and has shown a knack for putting together quality at-bats. He could be bench-bound when Michael Conforto (shoulder) returns, but continued production could force the Mets to rethink how they utilize their roster.
Mar 29 - 4:33 PM

Brandon Nimmo will be leading off and playing center field on Opening Day on Thursday against the Cardinals.

Not a huge surprise, but it's still nice to get conformation. Nimmo was one of the few pleasant surprised for the Mets last year, and he had a .941 OPS in the Grapefruit League, if that means anything to you. Playing time might be inconsistent, but when Nimmo plays, he does offer some fantasy value -- particularly in OBP leagues.
Mar 28 - 4:07 PM

Brandon Nimmo homered for the Mets' only run Tuesday against the Astros.

Nimmo also walked. He's batting .343 with three homers, two triples and three doubles in 35 at-bats. Expect him to serve as the Mets' leadoff man against right-handers until Michael Conforto returns.
Mar 13 - 5:31 PM

Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-5 with a triple and a double as the Mets' leadoff man Thursday.

At this point, it seems pretty likely that Nimmo will serve as the Mets' center fielder and leadoff man against lefties until Michael Conforto returns. He's hitting .385/.452/.846 in 26 at-bats this spring.
Mar 8 - 5:09 PM

Brandon Nimmo homered, walked and scored twice Monday against the Tigers.

Nimmo is making an early case to be the Mets' center fielder against righties. He's 7-for-18 with two homers, a triple and a double to date. If he does start, he'll likely occupy the leadoff spot, too.
Mar 5 - 4:33 PM

Brandon Nimmo went 2-for-3 with an RBI and two runs scored in Friday's Grapefruit League tie with the Astros.

He cracked an RBI-triple in the sixth inning and came around to score on a base hit by Ty Kelly. Nimmo is off to a hot start this spring as he fights to earn a backup outfielder job with the big club. The soon-to-be 25-year-old slashed .260/.379/.418 with five homers and 21 RBI in 69 games for the Mets a year ago.
Mar 2 - 9:51 PM

Brandon Nimmo homered and walked in three plate appearances Wednesday as the Mets topped the Braves 6-4.

Juan Lagares is hurt already, so Nimmo is looking at more time to show that he should be the Mets' center fielder against righties initially. He's not the defender that Lagares is, but he did have a .379 OBP in his 177 at-bats for the Mets last year.
Feb 28 - 4:12 PM

Mets general manager Sandy Alderson said Tuesday that 4-5 teams have inquired on outfielder Brandon Nimmo.

The Pirates were reportedly one of those teams, but the Mets were reluctant to part with Nimmo in trade talks for Andrew McCutchen. It's unclear whether they'd be willing to do so in order to acquire Josh Harrison, who carries three years of team control if you include his two club options. Nimmo put up a .379 on-base percentage in 215 plate appearances with the Mets last season and is capable of playing all over the outfield, so he's a useful piece to have around. Yoenis Cespedes and Juan Lagares have missed time with injury in recent years and Michael Conforto is coming off shoulder surgery, so it's understandable why the Mets value him.
Jan 23 - 2:32 PM

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.
