Mets OF prospect Brandon Nimmo plans on taking dry swings on Wednesday.

Nimmo's not to the point where he will be swinging with live baseballs yet. He jammed his thumb on a pitch last week and has not played in a Grapefruit League game in the last six days. The 21-year-old hit .278 with 10 home runs and 51 RBI in the minors last season.
Mar 11 - 10:38 AM

Mets prospect OF Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-6 with two doubles on Wednesday for Double-A Binghamton.

Nimmo’s batting average (.255) and on-base percentage (.362) have dropped off since moving up to Double-A, but he’s actually shown more consistent power (.427 SLG) with six home runs, 12 doubles and four triples over 60 games. Overall, the 21-year-old outfielder has turned in a breakout performance, with a .289/.407/.443 batting line, 40 extra-base hits including a career-high 10 home runs, 14 stolen bases and a 101-86 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 122 games.

Mets prospect outfielder Brandon Nimmo went 2-for-5 with a home run and a stolen base on Friday for Double-A Binghamton.

Initially, Nimmo found himself struggling in the Double-A Eastern League, hitting just .189/.318/.360 through his first 31 games. Since then, he has hit .344/.440/.547 over 17 games, which has included an eight-game hitting streak and his current six-game hitting streak. Nimmo has been alternating between center field and left field, and it is still unclear as to the final position in which we will find Nimmo. He profiles as a .280 hitter with 30-plus doubles and a high OBP, and could be in Queens by mid-2015.

Mets outfield prospect Brandon Nimmo went 1-for-5 with a double for Double-A Binghamton on Saturday.

Nimmo has had trouble finding the best way to succeed in the Eastern League, hitting just .190/.326/.354 since his promotion. He has been alternating between left field and center field with Darrell Ceciliani, who is unlikely to reach the major leagues. While it would be nice to see Nimmo improve his production in Double-A , he could start 2015 in Double-A and still be in line to reach Queens in 2015.

Mets outfield prospect Brandon Nimmo went 2-for-6 with a double, home run, and a sacrifice for Double-A Binghamton on Friday.

Nimmo initially struggled in the Eastern League, but has found his stroke as of late, and has hits in his last five games. Nimmo came into the season slowly falling off the prospect radar, but has hit well and could be in Queens as soon as mid-2015. He does not have star potential, but could hit .280 with a high OBP and 30-plus doubles.

Mets prospect outfielder Brandon Nimmo has been promoted to Double-A Binghamton.

The former first-round pick floundered somewhat in 2012 and 2013, but has come alive in 2014, hitting a sparkling .322/.448/.458 with nine doubles, five triples, and four home runs. It will be interesting to see how Nimmo's patient batting approach will sink or swim with the more advanced pitching in the Eastern League.

Mets outfield prospect Brandon Nimmo went 2-for-3 with a double, a triple, and a walk for High-A St. Lucie, raising his season line to .326/.449/.464.

The precocious Nimmo has been percolating in St. Lucie all season, hitting for a high average with a penchant for working deep counts and picking up walks. He leads the Florida State League with a .449 OBP, 49 walks, and five triples. He is tenth with 73 hits and 13th with nine stolen bases. Nimmo could find himself being promoted to Double-A Binghamton within the next few weeks.

Mets outfield prospect Brandon Nimmo will miss at least three games with conjunctivitis in his eye.

Conjunctivitis is more commonly known as pink eye, and Nimmo will find himself staying away from people for the next few days to avoid spreading the highly contagious virus. Nimmo is hitting .332/.456/.469 for the season, and he should be back in games early next week after a few days off.

Mets prospect OF Brandon Nimmo went 2-for-4 with a solo home run on Thursday for High-A St. Lucie.

The 21-year-old is having a tremendous season for St. Lucie, as he's batting .341/.477/.474 with 44 runs scored, 13 extra-base hits, eight steals and a stellar 45/39 strikeout-to-walk ratio through 47 games. Nimmo has cooled off a bit in May after a torrid first month, but he appears to be heating up once again with a .471/.609/.706 batting line during his current five-game hitting streak.
Fri, May 23, 2014 03:26:00 PM

Mets outfield prospect Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-5 on Friday for High-A St. Lucie.

He has cooled down as of late, but if he heats up again, Nimmo could be finding himself playing center field for Double-A Binghamton. Nimmo is hitting .344/.479/.443 with five doubles, one triple, and two home runs in 35 games. He also has 34 walks and 29 strikeouts, as his patient approach is helping up to drive up the pitch counts of opposing pitchers.
Sat, May 10, 2014 10:51:00 AM

Mets outfield prospect Brandon Nimmo went 4-for-4, including a home run and a double on Monday for High-A St. Lucie.

Nimmo is hitting .407/.530/.549 with five doubles, two home runs, and five stolen bases for the season. He has a Florida State League-leading 24 walks and has made 21 starts in center field and three starts at DH. The Mets are trying to see if he can stick in center field, and he could turn into a below-average center fielder who makes up for his defensive deficiencies with good offensive production.

Mets prospect outfielder Brandon Nimmo went 4-for-5 with a walk and a triple on Friday for High-A St. Lucie.

Nimmo seems to be finding his stroke in 2014, as he is hitting .407/.507/.542 with three doubles, one triple, and one home run through 15 games. Nimmo has 12 walks and 14 strikeouts while making 14 starts in center field. Despite concerns about his range forcing Nimmo into an outfield corner, the Mets are clearly trying to see if Nimmo can find a way to stay in center field.
Sat, Apr 19, 2014 09:36:00 AM

Mets prospect OF Brandon Nimmo had a big game on Thursday for High-A St. Lucie, going 2-for-4 with a home run, three runs and two walks.

The 20-year-old is off to a hot start this season, as he's now batting .348/.516/.565 with three extra-base hits and an 8/7 strikeout-to-walk ratio through seven games. Nimmo projects to hit for at least average power at maturity, but so far it's mostly come in the form of doubles and triples. In his full-season debut last year at Low-A Savannah, Nimmo batted .273/.397/.359 with 16 doubles, two home runs and a 131/71 strikeout-to-walk ratio in 110 games. He'll likely require at least two more seasons to refine his game in the minor leagues, but his development of consistent in-game power could potentially have him in the major leagues by the end of the 2015 season.

Mets outfield prospect Brandon Nimmo will likely open 2014 with High-A St. Lucie.

Nimmo was solid but not spectacular during his first full season of professional baseball, putting up a .273/.397/.359 line with two home runs and 16 doubles. After going 3-for-7 with three singles and a walk during spring training, Nimmo could have a breakout year in the often pitching-friendly Florida State League. Keep an eye on Nimmo as someone who could come up by the end of 2015, as the Mets outfield could use the help.
