Nick Plummer went 3-for-4 with a home run, two runs scored, and four RBI on Monday against the Nationals.
If you had Plummer as a dominant performer over the last two days on your bingo card, you should play the lottery. Plummer has seen some playing time because of Brandon Nimmo's wrist injury, but with Nimmo coming back, he'll presumably occupy the bench role he was originally called up to fill. But if he continues to produce like he has the last two days, the Mets will have no choice but to start him regularly. For now, assume this is a hot streak and a nice story and don't go chasing Plummer, but it's worth putting him on your watch list at this point.
Nick Plummer went 1-for-4 with a solo home run on Sunday night against the Phillies.
Plummer led off the bottom of the ninth inning with the Mets down 4-3 and hit Corey Knebel's first pitch deep to right field to tie the game. He's with the big club because Travis Jankowski broke his hand and playing more because Brandon Nimmo has been out. He's unlikely to see regular playing time going forward but given his big knock, he's worth watching in NL-only leagues in case he earns more time as a starter.
Nick Plummer was one of three Mets to take Josiah Gray deep in the first inning of Saturday's spring training game versus the Nationals. His two-run blast helped the Mets jump out to an early lead as they won, 6-2.
Plummer, a former first round pick for the Cardinals, suffered some injuries early in his career, but has proven himself capable in the minors. However, he has a long way to go to be anything more than depth piece with a crowded Mets outfield that could still sign Michael Conforto.
