Mets' Brandon Nimmo sits out second straight day with hand issue


by Igor Mello | CBSSports.com
(3/7/2015) Mets outfield prospect Brandon Nimmo was out of the lineup for a second straight day on Saturday due to a mild left-hand issue, reports ESPN. Nimmo got jammed by a pitch earlier in the week. The Mets have not announced a timetable for his return.

New Mets hitting coach helps prospect Nimmo tweak setup


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(2/12/2015) Mets outfield prospect Brandon Nimmo said he is "very sorry" hitting coach Kevin Long was fired by the Yankees following the 2014 season, but added he is "very glad" the Mets were able to sign him

Nimmo is already benefiting from Long's coaching, as Nimmo said he has changed his setup on advice from Long. He now sets up a little lower to the ground, which allows him to drive his "back leg into the ground."

“We noticed that my hips weren’t really getting turned at 90 to 100 percent at contact, they were more like 70 percent, I was closing myself off,” Nimmo said, per the New York Post. “So we just straightened that out.

“You could see the change right away, a lot more power was showing up and that’s exciting for me. I try to hold my finish a little bit so I can see where my foot is and that’s what I’ve been working on here."

Mets third base/infield coach Tim Teufel is pleased what he sees from Nimmo, who is considered the Mets' third-best prospect by MLB.com and Baseball America.

“He’s got a plan at the plate, which I really like," Teuful said. "He’s consistent in his setup and he’s thinking about what he’s doing in there, he’s not just going in there hacking. From last year to this year, he’s really grown up. His body is filling out. I like what I see, he’s an up-and-comer.’’

Brandon Nimmo receives invitation to spring training


by R.J. White | CBSSports.com

Brandon Nimmo blooming for Mets


by Bill Passonno | CBSSports.com
(4/22/2013) The player maintaining his perch atop the South Atlantic League in batting average -- Mets outfield prospect Brandon Nimmo -- owned just a .229 career mark entering his first season with Class A Savannah.

But the 20-year-old, who was selected out of a Wyoming high school in the 2011 MLB Draft, has made tremendous strides as he ascends through the organization and is currently hitting .424 with six multi-hit outings in his past 10 games.

"You could see his talent is just kicking in as he's seeing higher-level competition," Savannah manager Luis Rojas told ESPN.com. "He's going to get better and better. Each time he keeps moving up the ladder and sees better competition, he's going to be up right there with it."


Brandon Nimmo finding his swing


by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com
(4/16/2013) Mets outfield prospect Brandon Nimmo had three more hits Monday, sending his South Atlantic League-leading batting average to .429 (18 for 42). Nimmo also had five RBI Monday and has 10 through 11 games.

Nimmo homered for the first time this season Monday and is slugging .571. He's also recorded 12 runs. 

Nimmo, the 13th overall pick in the 2011 draft, hasn't hit above .248 in his first two pro seasons, but he said he's more adjusted to life as a pro baseball player this season. Nimmo is considered the Mets' fourth-best prospect by MLB.com.

"In Legion ball, you'd face a good pitcher maybe every fifth day or so," Nimmo said, per MLB.com. "In the New York-Penn League, I just skipped a whole bunch of levels and was facing great guys all the time. You can't take any at-bats off. It took time to learn how to approach the game and how to be at 100 percent or close to 100 percent every day, mentally and physically."
