  • 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: Cleared for spring training

    Mets president of baseball operations David Stearns implied Monday that Nimmo (shoulder) is fully healthy ahead of spring training, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports.

    Stearns noted that lefty David Peterson (hip), infielder Ronny Mauricio (knee) and right-hander Kyle Crick (calf) are the only players who will be held out of drills to begin camp, which suggests that Nimmo has a clean bill of health after finishing the 2023 season on the injured list with a sprained right shoulder. Nimmo is projected to return to his familiar role as the Mets' everyday leadoff man in 2024 after he slashed .274/.363/.466 with a career-high 24 home runs in 152 games a season ago.

  • 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.
