The Mets have promoted prospect outfielder Brandon Nimmo to Triple-A Las Vegas.
Nimmo, a supplemental first-round pick in 2011, earned the promotion after batting .279/.354/.368 with two home runs and 16 RBI over 302 plate appearances with Double-A Binghamton this season. The 22-year-old has been considered one of the team's top position prospects for a while and now he's just a step away from the majors. It's worth noting that his name has been floated in some trade rumors this week, so that opportunity might not be with the Mets. Jul 28 - 3:44 PM

Mets OF prospect Brandon Nimmo singled four times Saturday for Double-A Binghamton.

Nimmo returned to the lineup Thursday after missing a month with a sprained ACL. He's looked sharp since coming back, collecting seven hits in his first 14 at-bats. Saturday was Nimmo's first four-hit game since April 28, 2014. New York drafted Nimmo with the 35th pick in the 2011 draft.

Mets prospect OF Brandon Nimmo went 2-for-5 with two doubles, two runs scored and an RBI on Thursday in his return to Double-A Binghamton.

After spending a month on the shelf with a knee injury, Nimmo came off the disabled list earlier this week and made a brief rehab stint at High-A St. Lucie, where he went 2-for-16 over four games, before returning to Double-A. The 22-year-old outfielder is batting .301/.369/.434 with 14 extra-base hits, 12 RBI and a 31/16 strikeout-to-walk ratio for Binghamton this season but has played in just 35 games.

Mets prospect Brandon Nimmo (knee) made his return from the disabled on Sunday for High-A St. Lucie.

He’s 0-for-8 with two runs scored and a pair of walks in his first two games back after missing nearly a month with a left knee injury. Prior to the landing on the shelf, the 22-year-old outfielder was batting .281/.358/.397 with 41 hits and 11 extra-base hits (two home runs) through 36 games for Double-A Binghamton. He should return to that level in short order after a brief rehab stint at St. Lucie. If all goes as planned with Nimmo’s development, he could be ready for the major leagues at some point in 2016.

Mets prospect OF Brandon Nimmo was placed on the 7-day disabled list on Sunday for Double-A Binghamton due to a left knee strain.

He sprained the ACL in his left knee on May 15 while stepping on first base awkwardly, but he didn’t suffer a tear and will not require surgery. The 22-year-old’s recent hot streak, including a current seven-game hitting streak, had pushed his season batting line to .297/.368/.420 with 11 extra-base hits (two home runs) through 34 games in the Eastern League. Nimmo doesn’t project as an impact player at the highest level, but he’s a well-rounded player who should hit for average and reach base at a high clip as an everyday left fielder.

Mets prospect outfielder Brandon Nimmo has been diagnosed with a sprained ACL in his left knee.

Nimmo injured his knee stepping on first base while playing with Double-A Binghamton on Friday. Fortunately, he didn't suffer a tear. Nimmo will be able to resume baseball activities once he's pain-free. The 22-year-old was batting .297/.368/.420 with two home runs and nine RBI over his first 34 games in Double-A this season.
May 19 - 8:35 AM

Mets prospect OF Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-5 with two doubles on Monday for Double-A Binghamton.

The three-hit performance was Nimmo’s second in as many days, and he’s batting .372 with 16 hits in his last 10 games. The 22-year-old is off to a strong start this season in his return to Binghamton, batting .304/.375/.457 with nine extra-base hits and nine walks through 23 games. Nimmo logged 65 games in the Eastern League last summer and showed a bit more power without sacrificing his patient approach. If all goes as planned, Nimmo should split 2015 between the Double- and Triple-A levels, putting him on track to debut the following year.
May 5 - 3:24 PM

Mets re-assigned OF Brandon Nimmo, SS Gavin Cecchini and C Xorge Carrillo to minor league camp.

None of the three entered camp with any real shot of making the Opening Day roster. Arguably the team's top position player prospect, Nimmo could begin this season at Triple-A.
Mar 13 - 5:06 PM

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.
Thu, Jun 19, 2014 08:32:00 AM

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.
