Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-3 off the bench Thursday against the Marlins.

Nimmo doesn't have much left to prove in the minors after hitting .352/.423/.541 in 392 at-bats in Triple-A last year, but the Mets certainly don't have any room for him after retaining both Yoenis Cespedes and Jay Bruce over the winter. The 2011 first-round pick is due to return to Vegas.

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.

He was slashing .336/.409/.517 with seven homers and six stolen bases in 72 games with Triple-A Las Vegas.
