Nimmo (finger) took batting practice on the field Monday, Mike Puma of the New York Post reports. The 28-year-old resumed light swinging last week and has now progressed to full swings in batting practice as he returns from a small ligament tear near the base of his left index finger. According to Anthony DiComo of MLB.com, Nimmo could begin a rehab assignment in the near future if he can avoid any setbacks in his rehab work.
Nimmo (finger) hopes to head out on a rehab assignment next week, Anthony DiComo of MLB.com reports. Upon receiving a second opinion, Nimmo learned that he is not dealing with a nerve issue but actually a small ligament tear near the base of his left index finger. It should heal on its own. He appears to be tracking toward a late-June activation from the injured list if he avoids setbacks.
Nimmo (finger) has resumed swinging, although at a low intensity, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. Nimmo unsuccessfully tried to hit off a tee and soft toss last week, but had to stop because his bruised finger continued to cause him pain. He's resumed swinging, though it doesn't appear that he's close to facing high-velocity pitching. With that being said, a late-June return remains a best-case scenario for the outfielder.
Nimmo (finger) has no timetable for a new rehab assignment, Deesha Thosar of The New York Daily News reports. According to manager Luis Rojas on Tuesday, Nimmo recently attempted to hit off a tee and take soft toss from a coach but his finger was still bothering him. The outfielder last saw action May 13 at Triple-A Syracuse before that rehab stint was cut short, and he'll need a couple weeks to get back into game shape once he's finally comfortable swinging a bat again.
Nimmo (finger) left his rehab assignment at Triple-A Syracuse and is rejoining the Mets to receive treatment, Deesha Thosar of the New York Daily News reports. The 28-year-old began the rehab stint Thursday but was out of the lineup for Syracuse the past two days while feeling some pain in his bruised finger, leading to him rejoin the big-league club to reassess. Manager Luis Rojas said Nimmo won't take at-bats or resume a rehab assignment until the he's "100 percent pain-free," so the outfielder can be considered out indefinitely for the time being.
