Brandon Nimmo went 1-for-4 with a walk, two runs scored and an RBI in Tuesday's 10-8 loss at Colorado.
Nimmo, who hails from nearby Cheyenne, Wyoming, has really enjoyed the team's road trip to the Mountain Time Zone. He is 10-for-19 with a double, three homers, seven RBI and seven runs scored over his past four outings. Nimmo has been the only consistent threat at the plate for the Mets, and he'll continue to play regularly even when Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) is healthy enough to return. Jun 20 - 1:19 AM

Brandon Nimmo went 4-for-6 with two homers and four RBI in a 12-2 victory over the Rockies on Monday.

Nimmo now has back-to-back three-hit games, and three homers in that stretch. He led off the game with an inside-the-park homer, and he hit one over the fence in the seventh to give him two on the day and 12 on the year. Nimmo has his OPS at 1.008 and doesn't appear to be slowing down anytime soon. He's one of the true bright spots for the Mets in 2018.

Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-5 with a double, a two-run home run and two runs scored in Sunday's victory in Arizona.

Nimmo has back-to-back multi-hit games, and he has cracked four homers with six RBI in the month of June, with eight of his season's 10 homers coming in the past 24 games dating back to May 23. Even when Yoenis Cespedes (quadriceps) is ready to return from his long-term absence, Nimmo will continue playing regularly.
Jun 17 - 10:55 PM

Joel Sherman of the New York Post reports that he was told by Mets manager Mickey Callaway that Brandon Nimmo will continue playing regularly after Yoenis Cespedes (hip) returns.

Nimmo has been the team's best hitter this season and with the Mets struggling so much offensively their skipper isn't about to pull their hottest position player out of the lineup. Cespedes is also obviously going to play every day, leaving one outfield spot for Michael Conforto and Jay Bruce. Conforto has options and Sherman hears that the club is considering demoting him to get his swing right. Nothing has been decided here yet and a decision could be delayed a bit after Cespedes had a setback during his rehab game Saturday with a tight quad. However, it appears that Nimmo isn't going anywhere, so his fantasy owners should breathe easier.

Brandon Nimmo belted a solo home run but his team fell to the Yankees on Friday.

He led off the home half of the first inning by depositing a Masahiro Tanaka pitch over the right field wall. That was the beginning and end of the Mets' scoring for the ballgame. Nimmo is putting together a very good season in terms of his rate stats, although he hasn't gotten enough playing time to rack up big totals in the counting stats yet. He has a .268/.409/.551 slash line with eight homers, 15 RBI, 27 runs and six steals in 138 at-bats. His .960 OPS would be top-10 in the majors if he had enough ABs to qualify.
Jun 8 - 10:23 PM

Brandon Nimmo went 0-for-2 with two walks on Sunday in a loss to the Cubs.

Nimmo wasn't able to get on via hit -- there were only two all day for the Mets against an excellent Jon Lester -- but he did what he has done all year; get on base by any means necessary. He's now slashing a very strong .276/.421/.559 on the season over 48 games, and he should continue to hit at the top of the New York lineup for the foreseeable future.
Jun 3 - 3:52 PM

Brandon Nimmo continued his hot hitting in Friday's loss to the Cubs, going 2-for-4 with a solo home run.

Nimmo also drew a walk, reaching base safely in three of his five plate appearances. He has been a force in the Mets' lineup this season, slashing .294/.436/.597 with seven homers, 14 RBI and five stolen bases in 149 plate appearances. He needs to be owned and started in all mixed leagues as long as he's seeing everyday at-bats.
Jun 1 - 11:23 PM

Brandon Nimmo went 2-for-4 with a double and a solo home run in a loss to the Cubs on Thursday.

Nimmo hit a solo homer, his sixth of the year, off Cubs reliever Brian Duensing in the eighth inning to get the Mets on the board. He also doubled in the game, his third straight game with a double and the third in a row in which he's had multiple hits. That's the kind of year the 25-year-old is having -- all he's done is produce, to the point that he's forced his way into an everyday spot atop the Mets' lineup. Nimmo is hitting .287/.431/.574 with six homers and five steals and is suddenly a viable mixed league play for fantasy purposes.
May 31 - 10:37 PM

Brandon Nimmo had two hits, two steals and two runs scored Tuesday against the Braves.

Given his very modest homer and steal outputs in the minors, it never seemed that Nimmo would have much fantasy upside even if he did turn into a useful major leaguer. However, he's now managed five homers and five steals in 107 at-bats for the Mets. We're not sure we'd count on him continuing to steal bases and he's probably not going to hit for a particularly strong average, either, but he's definitely getting the job done for the Mets.
May 29 - 11:49 PM

Brandon Nimmo slugged his fifth homer of the season as the Mets won the second game of Monday's doubleheader against the Braves.

It was a solo shot against Brandon McCarthy. Nimmo has now equaled his home run total from all of last season, which came in 85 more plate appearances. The 25-year-old was thought to have a limited fantasy profile coming into the year despite strong on-base skills, but he's increased his fly ball rate and is also pulling the ball more often. Nimmo owns a .260/.408/.519 batting line through 42 games and deserves to have a prominent role with the Mets even after Yoenis Cespedes returns from the disabled list.
May 29 - 9:19 AM

Brandon Nimmo went a perfect 4-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a triple, a walk and two runs scored to lead the Mets to a 5-0 win over the Brewers on Thursday.

A four-hit night in any fashion is impressive, but none of Nimmo's three extra-base hits were cheap, all three ripped into right field in varying fashions. His fourth hit, an infield single, showed he's got some wheels, too, and it marked the eighth consecutive plate appearance in which Nimmo reached base. That's his forte -- he's got a .450 on-base percentage to go with a .294 average and .541 slugging percentage following Thursday's game -- and he's forcing his way into an everyday role as a result. It's not terribly sexy for standard mixed leagues, but deeper leagues and ones that account for OBP are leagues in which Nimmo should be owned quickly, if not already.
May 25 - 12:09 AM

Brandon Nimmo went 2-for-3 and drilled a solo home run for his team's only run of the game in a loss to the Marlins on Wednesday.

He took starter Dan Straily over the wall in the fifth inning. The Mets couldn't get much going tonight, snaring only six hits total in the ballgame. Nimmo is having a very solid season at the plate and has played his way into steadily increasing playing time as a result. He has a nice .259/.423/.469 slash line with three homers, six RBI and 16 runs scored in 104 plate appearances. He began the season as a bench player but is now starting everyday in the outfield.
May 23 - 10:30 PM

Brandon Nimmo slugged a solo home run Wednesday in the Mets’ loss to the Blue Jays.

He gave New York its first and only run of the afternoon with two outs in the ninth inning. It was one just of three hits for the Mets, who have lost four of their last six while slipping to fourth place in the NL East. The home run was Nimmo’s second of the year and his first since April 15.
May 16 - 5:12 PM

Brandon Nimmo is starting in center field and batting leadoff for the Mets on Friday versus the Phillies.

Nimmo could be in the lineup all weekend with Jay Bruce (paternity) away from the club. He's batted .255/.453/.468 with one home run and one stolen base over 64 plate appearances this season.
May 11 - 3:48 PM

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.
