Nimmo went 1-for-4 with a solo home run Thursday against the Diamondbacks.

He hit his ninth home run of the season in his first at-bat of the game off Matt Koch. Nimmo's been in a bit of a cold spell of late -- he has just six hits in his last 36 at-bats -- but continues to show surprising power with a .555 slugging percentage through 155 at-bats, and he's a major asset in on-base percentage leagues thanks to a 13.6 percent walk rate. With Yoenis Cespedes (hip, quadriceps) still on the shelf, Nimmo is guaranteed playing time in the short term.
