LF,CF - NYM
Brandon Nimmo is dealing with a sore wrist and will receive a cortisone injection on Saturday night.
Both Nimmo and Buck Showalter said that they did not believe that the injury would necessitate an IL stint, and both are hoping that Nimmo will be back in the lineup by Monday. Nimmo has apparently been dealing with the wrist issue for most of May, and his slugging percentage has been about 70 points lower in the month than in April. For now, it seems like Nimmo will be back early next week, so there's no reason for managers to take any drastic action.
Brandon Nimmo went 1-for-4 with a triple, a run scored, and an RBI on Wednesday against the Giants.
Nimmo now has 17 runs scored in the month of May, and has a .385 OBP overall. He's the everyday leadoff man for the Mets and has scored eight runs over his last eight games. His lack of power or speed will put a ceiling on his value, but his contributions in batting average and runs scored should more than make up for it.
Brandon Nimmo went 3-for-8 with a walk, a run scored, and an RBI in Saturday's doubleheader against the Rockies.
Nimmo has a .394 OBP and a 25:22 K:BB ratio. He doesn't have much power or speed but he'll get on base and score runs at an elite clip so long as he's healthy. Entering a walk year, Nimmo looks motivated to put up the best season of his career, and should be started in all points leagues and in five-outfielder rotisserie formats.
New York Mets outfielder Brandon Nimmo (quad) is set to rejoin the lineup on Wednesday and will bat leadoff.
Nimmo has had a fantastic year at the plate so far as he is batting .292 with an OPS of .855. The outfielder is a huge reason that this Mets team has taken a big step forward as he continues to hit for contact at the plate, the big key this year will be whether he is able to stay on the field for a full season or not as he has done that only once in his seven year career.
OF Brandon Nimmo is day-to-day with a bruised right quad. Nimmo left Tuesday's Game 2 early and went for X-Rays, which came back negative.
It's possible that Nimmo misses a game or two, but this injury doesn't look to be overly serious. Manager Buck Showalter said that "We'll see how he is tomorrow." Nimmo is hitting .292/.397/.458 in 2022.
