Mets minor league OF Brandon Nimmo provided three hits Tuesday in Triple-A Las Vegas' loss to El Paso.

He finished a triple shy of the cycle. Nimmo has really found his stride lately, hitting .464 with two homers and six RBI during his seven-game hitting streak. The 23-year-old leads the Pacific Coast League in both batting average (.351) and on base percentage (.424) and also ranks second in OPS (.975) and sixth in slugging percentage (.550). The Mets' outfield is getting a little crowded but there's still a good chance we'll see Nimmo return to the major leagues at some point next month.

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

Nimmo was only up in the majors for a handful of days this time around and went 0-for-3 with two strikeouts in the one game he started. The 23-year-old former first-round pick is batting .237/.297/.288 over his first 64 major league plate appearances.

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

Nimmo was going to be squeezed out of playing time after Monday's acquisition of Jay Bruce, so he'll head back to Triple-A so that he can get regular at-bats. He should get another chance relatively soon.
Aug 2 - 3:46 PM

According to Tim Brown of Yahoo Sports, Mets outfield prospect Brandon Nimmo will be part of the package heading to Cincinnati for Jay Bruce.

But the deal has not been finalized yet, so this is very much a fluid situation. Nimmo, the 13th overall pick in the 2011 MLB Draft, has batted .236/.300/.291 over his first 60 major league plate appearances this season. He was slashing .336/.409/.517 with seven homers and six stolen bases in 72 games with Triple-A Las Vegas.

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

Beat writer Adam Rubin of ESPN.com believes the Mets are sending someone to the disabled list, though it doesn't appear to be Yoenis Cespedes (quad) or Jose Reyes (intercostal). Nimmo hit .389 in nine games for Las Vegas after his demotion. Cespedes has been limited to playing left field since his quad injury, so Nimmo will likely see most of his time in center.

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

Nimmo came out of the gate swinging with the big league club, but wound up hitting just .235/.291/.294 with one homer in 55 plate appearances with the Mets. He should get another opportunity later in the summer.

Brandon Nimmo connected for his first major league homer in a 10-2 win over the Cubs on Friday.

According to StatCast, Nimmo’s fourth-inning blast traveled 442 feet, which is the longest home run by a Mets player this season. The 23-year-old went 2-for-3 on the night and is batting .280 (7-for-25) through his first six games in the majors. He’s bringing some energy out of the leadoff spot for New York and could be worth a try in deeper mixed leagues for however long he stays there.

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.

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.
Jun 25 - 3:30 PM

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'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.

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.
