    New Mets hitting coach helps prospect Nimmo tweak setup

    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.''
