Player Outlook
Brandon Nimmo re-signed with the Mets on an eight-year, $162 million contract last offseason, and he delivered an impressive campaign in 2023 with 24 homers, 68 RBI, 89 runs and a .274/.363/.466 slash line in 152 games. Most of Nimmo's numbers were nearly identical to his 2022 production, though he clubbed eight more home runs as he set career highs in flyball rate (39.2 percent), barrel rate (9.5 percent) and hard-hit rate (47.7 percent). It's the second straight year he's played in over 150 games, as it appears the durability issues that plagued him earlier in his career are now behind him (though he did spend the final two days of the season on the IL with a shoulder sprain). He's not much of a threat on the bases with three steals in each of the past two seasons, but he otherwise provides fantasy managers with well-rounded production. Assuming the injury concerns are fully behind him, Nimmo should be a top-100 option again in 2024.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: On base three times Sunday

    Nimmo went 2-for-4 with a walk and an RBI in Sunday's win over the Royals. The 31-year-old outfielder shone once again as the Mets' leadoff hitter, capping his day with a bases-loaded walk that brought home the winning run in the eighth inning. Nimmo has reached base safely in all 11 games he's played so far in April, slashing .286/.455/.548 with seven runs, 12 RBI, and six of his 12 hits (three doubles, a triple and two homers) going for extra bases.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Big day in win

    Nimmo went 2-for-5 with a double, a triple, two RBI and two runs scored in Thursday's 16-4 victory over Atlanta. Nimmo extended New York's lead to 2-0 in the second inning with an RBI double before driving in another run with a triple in the eighth. Nimmo has gone 7-for-14 with four extra-base hits in three games against Atlanta after starting the season in a 3-for-29 slump. The 31-year-old outfielder should continue to serve as the Mets' regular leadoff batter after slashing .274/.363/.466 with a career-high 24 homers, 68 RBI and 89 runs scored last season.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Busts out of slump

    Nimmo went 4-for-4 with a three-run home run, a solo home run and an additional run batted in Monday against Atlanta. Nimmo entered Monday's contest 3-for-29 (.103) on the season but broke out of the cold snap and reached safely in all five plate appearances. He finally got on the board in the home run column, mashing homers off Charlie Morton and A.J. Minter en route to a five-RBI day and the sixth multi-HR game of his career.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Returns to lineup Saturday

    Nimmo (hamstring) is starting as the Mets' designated hitter Saturday versus Cincinnati. Minor hamstring tightness prevented Nimmo from playing Friday, but the issue appears to have subsided ahead of Saturday's contest. The 31-year-old outfielder has gone just 1-for-21 through six games to begin the year, though he has still managed to draw six walks.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Minor hamstring injury

    Nimmo is sitting out Friday's game in Cincinnati because of some minor hamstring tightness, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Mets manager Carlos Mendoza said that Nimmo's hamstring "checked out pretty good" pregame and the team doesn't believe it to be a serious issue. Given how hamstring problems can sometimes linger though, it wouldn't be a surprise to see Nimmo sit out additional games. He's also just 1-for-21 to start the season, so a reset might not be the worst thing. Tyrone Taylor is in left field Friday.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Sits amid slump

    Nimmo is out of the lineup for Friday's game at Cincinnati, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. Nimmo started the Mets' first six games of the season but will receive a day to reset after going 1-for-21 with six walks during that stretch. Tyrone Taylor will take over in left field while Francisco Lindor moves up to the leadoff spot.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Draws five walks in twin bill

    Nimmo went 0-for-5 with five walks and a stolen base in Thursday's doubleheader split with the Tigers. Nimmo didn't get a hit in either contest, but he did his job as New York's leadoff man by drawing five free passes. Given that he's gone just 1-for-21 to start the campaign, it was a positive development for Nimmo's fantasy managers to see him spend some time on the basepaths, though outside of his theft he didn't do anything to provide fantasy value in leagues that don't use OBP as a category. Odds are that Nimmo's bat will eventually come around, as he hasn't batted lower than .274 in a season since 2019.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Could be moved down in lineup

    Nimmo could be moved down in the Mets' batting order this season, Tim Healey of Newsday reports. President of baseball operations David Stearns and manager Carlos Mendoza discussed the possibility with Nimmo early in the offseason and co-hitting coaches Jeremy Barnes and Eric Chavez have continued the dialogue in spring training. Nimmo's on-base skills make him a natural fit as a leadoff hitter, but he also showed last season with a career-high 24 home runs that he could have potential as a middle-of-the-order presence. Healey mentions Francisco Lindor, Starling Marte and Jeff McNeil as options to move up to the top of the batting order if Nimmo slides down.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Shifting to left field

    Mets manager Carlos Mendoza said Monday that Nimmo will move to left field this season while Harrison Bader takes over in center field, Pat Ragazzo of SI.com reports. That's been the assumption, but this is the first time Mendoza has officially addressed it. It makes for a strong defensive outfield for the Mets, giving them three outfielders with extensive center field experience between Nimmo, Bader and Starling Marte. Of course, given Bader's health history, there's a good chance Nimmo will still wind up spending a good amount of time in center.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Lands on injured list

    Nimmo landed on the 10-day injured list Saturday with a sprained right shoulder. Nimmo has dealt with more than his fair share of injury problems in the past, so it's discouraging to see him end the year injured after a pair of seasons in which he crossed the 150-game threshold for the first time. This particular injury may not be too worrisome, however, as source reports that Nimmo avoided structural damage. If the Mets had postseason baseball to look forward to, he would address the problem with an injection, but their 72-86 record means he'll instead hit the couch a few days early and let the problem heal with rest. Michael Perez was recalled to take Nimmo's place on the roster.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Likely done for season

    Nimmo has an AC joint injury in his right shoulder and will undergo an MRI on Friday, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Nimmo was held out of the lineup Sunday with an undisclosed injury, so this may be a related issue. The seriousness of the injury is not yet known, but given that the Mets have little to play for across the final weekend of the regular season, it's unlikely that Nimmo will return to the lineup.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Batting leadoff in return

    Nimmo (undisclosed) is back in the lineup Tuesday against the Marlins. Nimmo will start in center field and bat leadoff versus the Marlins and left-hander Braxton Garrett after sitting out Sunday's series finale at Philadelphia due to general soreness. Nimmo, 30, boasts a .333/.394/.633 slash line in 99 plate appearances since the beginning of September.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Banged up, sitting Sunday

    Nimmo is dealing with an unspecified injury and is out of the lineup for Sunday's game at Philadelphia, Tim Britton of The Athletic reports. The center fielder apparently suffered the injury Saturday on a slide into home plate, and manager Buck Showalter indicated Nimmo would have been replaced by a pinch runner had he reached during his ninth-inning plate appearance. It doesn't appear to be a serious issue, and Nimmo will have the Mets' scheduled day off Monday to rest before Tuesday's series opener versus the Marlins.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Homers among three hits

    Nimmo went 3-for-4 with a double, a solo home run, two additional runs and a walk against Miami in an 8-3 win Wednesday. Nimmo has been scorching in September, batting .346 through 18 contests. He's gone deep five times during the month so far, though he hadn't homered in his previous 10 games before Wednesday. Nimmo has already established a career high with 24 homers on the campaign, and he needs one more RBI to tie the career-best mark of 64 he recorded last season.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Three more hits Tuesday

    Nimmo went 3-for-5 with a double and two RBI in Tuesday's 4-3 loss to the Marlins. Among Nimmo's three hits was a game-tying, two-run double with two outs in the ninth inning. The tenacious 30-year-old has posted multi-hit efforts in four of the last eight games, hitting .361 (12-for-36) with four doubles, one triple, four runs and four RBI in that span.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Piles up XBH in Tuesday's win

    Nimmo went 3-for-4 with a walk, two doubles, a triple and two runs scored in Tuesday's 7-4 win over the Diamondbacks. The Mets' leadoff hitter had no trouble getting himself into scoring position as he continued a tear that has seen him slash .333/.390/.741 over his last 13 games with 11 total extra-base hits (five doubles, a triple and five homers). Nimmo's 23 long balls on the year are a career high, and his .819 OPS has him on track to post a mark in the .800s for the fourth straight season.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Homers Monday

    Nimmo went 1-for-3 with a two-run home run in Monday's 4-3 loss against Texas. Nimmo had been mired in an 0-for-20 slump prior to Monday's contest. He opened the scoring with a two-run blast off of Jon Gray in the third inning, his career-best 19th homer of the year and his fourth in his last 14 games. The 30-year-old Nimmo is now slashing .259/.356/.435 with 72 runs scored and 53 RBI across 563 plate appearances on the campaign.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Playing through quad injury

    Nimmo has been playing through a quadricep injury since the beginning of August and will only play in Game 2 of Saturday's doubleheader against Atlanta, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Nimmo's injury caused him to miss two games at the beginning of August, and the Mets have allowed him to play through it since then. Manager Buck Showalter said he wasn't comfortable starting Nimmo in both games of Saturday's twin bill because of the injury, so the center fielder will wait until the nightcap to get on the field. While playing through his injury this month, Nimmo is slashing .227/.346/.273 through 26 plate appearances.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Sitting Game 1

    Nimmo isn't in the Mets' lineup for the first game of Saturday's doubleheader against Atlanta. Nimmo has collected a hit in each of his last three games, and he'll get a breather to begin Saturday's activities. Rafael Ortega will slide to center field in Nimmo's absence, allowing Abraham Almonte to start in left and bat sixth.

  • Mets' Brandon Nimmo: Not in Sunday's lineup

    Nimmo is out of the lineup for Sunday's game against the Orioles. The 30-year-old started the past two contests after sitting out three games with quadriceps tightness, and it appears he'll get a maintenance day for the series finale in Baltimore. Rafael Ortega will receive another start in center field in Nimmo's place.
